Hello, all. Just returned from a week-plus out of the office, and am getting ready to leave again this afternoon for the rest of the week. Heading to the ICAST show (fishing trades) in Florida.
Man, has this thread been on fire since I've been gone. There are so many comments and questions along this thread, I can't get to them all here. But the main one focuses on Member Meets.
One fact that many of you have heard before centers on the legal liability it would require to officially sanction local events. I, for one, would not want to see the Club burdened with such insurance premiums.
As for getting the word out, when it comes to events such as Member Meets, the best tool in the world is at your fingertips. I check the MM topic and have seen how well you all communicate on it. Through the forum, you reach out to fellow members immediately with updates, notices, and reminders right up to the date of the event. That's something any print publishing schedule can't accomplish.
Lastly, the Club has not been owned by CUC International for roughly 10 years. Just for the record.
