    Lightbulb northeast real meet?!?!?!

    O.K., so I've seen a few meets local to me & thought about attending, but judging the fourum posts it looked like there would only be a few installs & more than a few people with nothing, but just coming to check it out, & then a meet that winded up being just that.

    I've also noticed a few other meets that weren't too local to me, but within traveling distance of an hour or two, but they appeared to be a little lame also, & I'm sure even those that attended, or almost attended didn't treat the attendance of the meet as a real prority because of the above mentioned facts.

    It then dawned on me that the problem is that our hobby is probably not saturated enough to produce a good local meet, I shouldn't even say that, as I haven't attended any really, but from what I've seen it appears that way to me anyway...I would asume guys in like calli would have an awsome meet because it seems there are just a lot more custom car stuff in general out there in la la land...

    now I had a thought, what if the meet was organized as a larger geographical attendance, in other words instead of a small meet here & a small meet there, what if say a tri-state meet was organized for say the spring, or...what if a north east meet was organized, If there were many more people claiming attendance then there would also be many more that wouldn't want to miss this, so it would become a higher priority to them & the end result should be a much larger meet, the kind of meet that would change even those who considered a meet as a"... maybe if I'm not doing nothing" ,to a "I gotta go to this..."

    just a thought....I do see the obvious problems with such a plan, of course it will take a bit more organization than just meeting in a mall parking lot...or would it?...I would think that a meet like this will require permission or a public place that wouldn't require that...A larger meet would be a bit more complicated, but I think it would be well worth the effort, & I know that I wouldn't want to miss it...

    just food for thought....any inputs....???

    Sign up fee of $5. That'll get door prizes. It might also get people serious about going. A yearly meet. I'm from MA, btw.

    winter is here. im sure there will be more people that get their projects finished. Although depending on how well orginized and how large this meet would be, would be the deciding factors for my attendence to the show. What i mean is im not gonna drive two states away unless i can maybe listen to a band and grab a hotdog and tshirt.

    Sure you can listen to a band, isn't that why you built your carputer?

    Hotdogs are easy. That so makes me want to wire a grill ignigter relay to my paralell port

    Tshirts are easy too.

    In all seriousness. If you want a mega-meet, it needs to be done right and needs to be mega. Someone would have to foot a bill and consider charging admission (donations, etc.?)

    Id be all for the mega meet with donations/tickets. Could we rent a large place that business could come and set up shop as well. Something else to learn and check out. Or does anyone own a field?

    Can you sleep in your car if need be? I won't go to an all-nighter unless there is a large fire involved lol. Actually, an all nighter might be good. I know several spots around me, but MA isn't a central location. NY or CT isn't bad.
