Asking For More Get-Together Leaders

Postby Mr Incredible » Mon Oct 19, 2015 3:30 pm

Hello fellow Sarasota MINI people...........

I have a favor to ask [-o<
As we all know, sometimes life, and work, get in the way, which is why we have been thin on events this year. Add in events that have been posted and then no participation :whistle: , it can be frustrating to many, as I have been told.

My favor is..............I would like please for others to come up with some event ideas; plan it, post it, and follow up with it. One person alone can not do it all and keep it going strong, we need additional participation for others to step up and plan some events, dinners, lunches, gatherings, etc.....

I've asked this before and unfortunately had only one person plan one event, and it was a while ago.

Please, please, please........ :bow:
Thank you for your understanding and help ;)b

Any opposition to having a facebook page? I woule be happy to run it. We could probably get more involvement in the sarasota area. I too wish we had more grt togethers- even just monthly short rides & breakfasts would be cool. Thoughts?

Absolutely! ;)b

That would be great. I use to do a FB page, however, after about 18 months or so of it, I got tired of FB and got off of it; phone was beeping all the time from posts.........

So, yes, and it would be appreciated by all.
The only thing I will ask is that if you post an event or get-together on the FB page, PLEASE, also post it here for those of us (and there are several of us) who do not use FB or Twitter.

I sincerely appreciate our help and support in doing this.
Thank you!

@ Buffy. I dont think this is true - the thing you posted had me a little concerned it was a scam/virus since it didnt goto anything. My advice is you are better off writing something up and posting the details.
Are you on facebook? We have a page now?
After we had a few more people get in - i was going to put together a saturday morning breakfast meetup to atleast connect all of the srq minis.

It's definitely true. A few years ago there was a core group - no longer. If you saw the more recent post, you can see that it goes to Bok Tower. Definitely not a scam and I already have a ticket.

I would like to say THANK YOU to ChloeCooper for taking the time and put together a FB page and work on getting SAM going again. I sincerely appreciate it, as do many others. I think the breakfast get-together would be a great idea :clap: ;)b

I will only throw my two cents in to say.......it amazes me those who will bitch, fetch, and moan about not having events or get-togethers, and they seem to be the same people who haven't shown up for the last several events, hmmm....... :rant: #$!!

Just posting that "someone bought a ticket and has a MINI" is NOT setting up an event. Setting up an event is when you post the idea, ask for others to participate, set up a clear date, time, and meeting place, and follow it through :noidea:

Please be kind to others on this site, be respectful and appreciative of what others are trying to do. If you can't be, then please go somewhere else :-$ :whistle:

@ChloeCopper was that Facebook page ever made? Having some events in the Sarasota area would be great! The majority of the events from the Tampa Bay FB are too far for us...
