Ok if MM isn't going to do it then we have to have a point person, to coordinate and schedule good dates, places etc.
Personally don't have the time.
But Mandalay, you and Katie, and several others have had great ideas, maybe a committee? I'm just the idea gal, LOL, let others come up with the details.
Still think at what ever hotel/casino/convention centre, need to organize mixers, guest speakers, fun and games of some sort, and evening dances, get togethers. Morning coffee for the ladies?
Also let's ALL keep emailing MM with support of the idea, then maybe they will sponser in someway?
Sharp ~ I don't mind the cruise thing...in fact this pic is from one of the short cruises I went on...this particular one was a local singles group that got together...we all met up at a hotel the buses picked up us...took us from Central Ca to Long Beach where the ships launch...the buses also took us back home...with such a big group...we got a great deal...$300 for the whole thing. It was 3 nights and 4 days...Ported into Encenada...was alot of fun...just socializing, meeting new people, shopping etc. It wasn't all about eating and drinking. I love to meet new people from all over. Anyhow just my opinion lol
You know this is never going to happen. Why even talk about it anymore? Everyone has and will spend months talking about it but nothing will get done. My suggestion on the beach is simple. If you book a cruise, getting everyone available for those dates will be difficult. Going to Myrtle Beach or anywhere like that, the hotels would be willing to block out dates even for 2 weeks based on the occupancy. So if some members came down for 3 days, a week, 2 weeks, whatever, there is room available for them. I suggest everyone log onto myrtlebeach.com to see all the activities and things to do before you say yes or no. Youc an also order a 'StayandPlay' catalog. It's about 500 pages of wonderful information on the Grand Strand.
My suggestion, Myrtle Beach, SC. Right in the middle of FL and NY. Easy to drive to, lots of stuff to do, great nightlife, fun activities throughout the day. Golfers could golf (men and women), lay at the beach, etc. Just a thought.
your right Sharpe1.
I asked the others that posted on the other thread to post on this thread too. I think the more postive responses we have, the more likely MM is to do it?
Maybe we should do an email campaign to them too. They never answered my first 2 emails to them?
Count me in...Sounds like a GREAT idea! It's so difficult to really know a person untill you get that first eye contact. Hey I'm all for the West Coast you guys can have the East Coast men hahahaha I'm thinking somewhere down in Southern California where it's nice and warm...and wouldn't it be fun to have a MM Disneyland trip?
Sharp is right, more people in the east than in the west, although I would go west if required. Count me in if it goes ahead ... I can help too .... my background is helping in coordinating high-profile events across Canada. I'm a great team player and I have the time.
Now where did Katiegirl go and her great ideas that were here yesterday? No hunny we weren't going to put you to work just need everyone to post who thinks this is a good idea.
Then maybe the MM gods will help out and start organizing one!
Let's face it they could make alot of money with something like this, and the merchandise, memberships, etc.
Hiya all! I think a conference is a great idea I would love to meet everyone and I don't know about the jellow thing but we can have some music and dancing and have lots of fun.......so let's gof ro it.
no haven't heard anything from MM in regard to this idea. Think they are waiting to see how many post here? Maybe if we all email them again and say this is what we'd like then they'll move on it.
I know of other sites that have meetings in major cities monthly and have a cruise or conference every year. Would love to see it.
I agree a tourist area like Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Niagara Falls or somewhere in Florida would be the best bet cause most States/Provinces have flight deals to those places anyways.
Let's keep pushing and posting and maybe the MM gods will hear us!
Hey IB, any more information on meeting. Maybe Vegas also would be a thought; they always run inexpensive flights (and sometimes a charter). I would be glad to help. I?m new to MM and enjoy reading all the comments and would love to see that Jell-O display also. Good luck
Love the jello wrestling idea! LOL Would love to see that!
Yes would include socials, dances, how about that speed dating thing? Tours, casinos if in that area.We were talking about a seminar or two with a relationship expert on how to make it better the second, third.....time etc. A little something for everyone. Parties, discussions, dancing and such.
Creativity101 your ideas sounds great I can tell you've done this before! I am totally a novice at this kind of thing. I just know several of the ladies were saying.....let's get together with everyone, would love to meet.....male or female.
Are the MM gods taking note? I don't know haven't replied to my last email yet!
A "convention " would be workable. I have done many, many corporate events including shows, themes, film, etc. One way to organize someting might be to post an unofficial website and build a database through a questionaire that would filter. Then, get a smashing place and charge enough to break even and move forward with deposits in place. Of course, it would be better to have a sanctioned event. But, why not be creative .. and get a cyber committee together?
Yes I emailed them on the weekend.....we know they don't work weekends.....LOL
But they did allow this board to go up, so maybe seeing who reponds and how many?
I haven't recieved an answer back from them, yet?
