Maybe it's just me, but flying to a road meet kind of seems like halfway missing the point.
Not at all. I'd rather spend my time at a new location than driving out and back on roads I know.

Take a different route. (see how easy that is?) :)
Okay, how do you propose I attend the Seattle tunnel opening without taking a week off from work that I can spend in, say, Argentina?

Just an FYI that lunch is now scheduled to be held at the Blue Boy Sandwich Shop on SR 117-Norwood Avenue due to its proximity to I-95. Dinner will now be scheduled to be held at the former lunch location (the original Bonoís Pit Bar-B-Q location on US 90-Beach Boulevard).

Also an FYI that the meet group photo site has been moved to the Jacksonville Landing in honor of the mass shooting that took place there earlier this year. Current plans call for the facility to be torn down and replaced with a riverfront-waterfront park, a much-needed addition to a downtown that doesnít really have much park space, if at all.

So weíre almost about a month away from this meet, but thereís just one confirmed attendee so far (other than me, being the host, of course ;)), and this has been of concern for me and my dad, whoís been sort of trying to help out as this is the first meet iíve tried to arrange. I will give a little more time (one more week, on the 23rd), until I should decide whether or not to call this meet off for now (until next year, maybe) and replace it with a different meet I have in the pipeline.

I probably won't know until a week or two before. Leaning towards Yes, but have to see how the finances fall.

The first meet I ever attended had only three participants. The last meet I hosted only had five people, including me.

As for me, I'd love to be able to come. It would give me the chance to pick up new counties in Georgia and possibly clinch I-75 there (we took I-475 on a family trip when I was a kid), but finances, leave time issues, and vehicle worries all preclude my being able to come. Maybe some of the Florida or southeastern US contingent will commit in the next little bit.

Thatís pretty much what Gene V. (who just said within the past day or two that heís officially gotten the time to attend my meet next month) said in his comment/reply post on the FB event page for this meet.

I got jwolfer interested in my meet, tried inviting him and event sent him a friend request on FB but havenít heard back from him on whether or not heíll be there. Someone who was previously interested forgot about my meet until it was too late to take off time for my meet, so heís no longer able to attend my meet.

Gene only had 3 people at his meet the first day (me, him, "Alternate 71") and just two the second day. The timing just didn't work for a lot of people.

A further thought: Since this is your first meet to host, perhaps a smaller one would be better for learning purposes.

We are now five days away from the road meet, I am about to wrap up the iteniary, and of course the route scouting needs to be done as well to make sure we have a proper final route for the road meet. Hoping for some fair weather for the road meet.

I know weíre now less than a week away from the meet now, but unfortunately the weather forecast looks less than favorable now. Gonna postpone the meet until later this year instead of canceling it outright.

I have hosted a road meet in very rainy conditions before. It is not ideal but it is doable.

Yeah but since I have no prior meet hosting exprerience I donít have anything to base it off of.

Plus my dad had a recent work-related accident and heís better now but still recovering from it. Also, my mom and sister just came back from a trip to Taiwan and Korea via Houstonís George Bush Intercontinental Airport which is where they met up and later split up on the way to and from EWR and JAX.

Yeah, I was part of one in very wet conditions, Port Huron 2012.  I think we sheltered under a porch canopy while looking at the Blue Water Bridges.

Port Huron, that sounds familiar...although I was still in grade school at the time and wouldnít make it to any meet that year outside of the Northeast (202 Parkway Meet).

Grade school?  Your age shows up as 24.  You'd have been 18 and a senior in high school, maybe just after graduation, I would think.

Well, it would depend on when in 2012 the Port Huron Meet was held, but the 202 Parkway Meet wasn't held until late 2012 (December), and I had turned 18 a couple months or so prior (October 11th) during my senior year of high school (Class of Ď13, but I didnít get my real diploma until the 2015-2016 school year was over due to being in a post-secondary program with community college and job-related options). I was actually held back a year in the first grade due to reasons I donít really recall all that well, other than it not being a good fit overall at first.

OK.  Port Huron was early August 2012.

Thatís what I was wondering about, I was pretty sure it was held earlier that year, perhaps in or close to the middle of the year. Thanks.
