OK so since Bob Baker is now in May and not April, shall we move the May event to April that Ken is putting together? Ken what are your thoughts on this?

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

I don't know, everyone likes to see pictures of a long line of buses on a cruise or at an event. That's the basis for the get together, driving a bus. Otherwise it is just a social outing, which is fine, but is that main function of a bus club? Or any social club built on a shared interest? For example, I used to by in a medievel recreationist club and it was a tight group. Sometimes we got together outside of group functions and everyone dressed like normal modern people. At other times we got together in official functions were everyone was expected to dress accordingly in medievel clothing. I don't see why it should even be an issue, if it is a bus cruise, then you bring a bus and not a Chevy or a Ford or Toyota. At campouts, those are more social, bring your Winnibago if you want, but a bus cruise should be buses. William, I have plenty of extra space in my bus if you want me to haul some kids. Hell, you can even borrow one of my buses for the day.

Just don't send any kids my direction.

I am only interested in Splits: not bays, Routans, Jeeps or Scions, so if I am going to organize something I will do it for those vehicles I and others are interested in. I'm not saying I won't attend other events, I will, I just need to focus what spare time I have.
Maybe it would be OK if they all kept a mile distance behind when driving to a club event and parked around the corner when they got where they where going. Oh and even better yet, DON"T SIT TOGETHER at said event if your means of transportation that got you to said event IS NOT A SPLIT BUS. Good info to know Dan.

No need to get upset, I said I would oganize something that is not a Club event, but open to all split owners in the club or from anywhere. I've got nothing against Bays, but they just don't interest me and aesthically, I prefer to organize an event that just includes splits. I encourage you and other Bay owners (and Routan owners, too) to do the same. Not every car event has to be a big umbrella.

This is exactly the "one for all, all for one" attitude the club has been lacking as far as support goes.

Not true. If some fat chick owner needed some help or parts I'd be there. I just am not interested in organizing an event where it is a vehicular free for all. I don't see the necessity of making every club event a "bring whatever rolls" event. If others feel that way, well, go ahead and organize it and I hope it succeeds. You have to let people participate at a level they feel comfortable with.
In the future I will pick on Pathfinders, too, because actually my Scion reference was directed at Brooks. :razz:

Because Dan likes only splits, and if he want's to exclude non split's on his event ...well so be it! One can choose to go or not! I enjoyed the trail bash he put on, it was a fun time! ...For me ...it would have been ok for a bay to be there (that's me), I didn't really know why there were no bay's there.. I would more inclined to show up at the next one, if all were welcome. Just me!! Kinda sounds like a white bathroom / black bathroom thing.

Splits in the front of the pack.....all others get jack in the back!! Don't send hate mail!

I'm planning on doing another one in Spring, probably late March. If it ain't a split it ain't fit [-X

On a serious note, I also have a 356 Porsche and a 912 Porsche. If the 356 Registry guys put on a cruise I am not going to show up in my 912 (let alone my bus) and I wouldn't expect them to want me to show up in anything but a 356. That doesn't upset me, I figure they are putting it on, and that is the deal, nothing personal. I don't dislike Bays or consider them inferior. In fact when I had Bays I hung out with bay people and ignored the split crowd because that was my interest. Now its splits, so I prefer to hang out with split people in order to discuss split stuff that would bore a bay person or a Routan owner senseless. I just don't see it as some elitist thing, I think Bay owners are too defensive and interpret everything as a slight. Bays are great vehicles, they are mechanically better than a split and have their own sort of charm. Bay owners need some "Bay Pride" and get over this idea that splits are superior and Bays need to be accepted.

Dan, If I was in a split only club then I would not disagree with you. But this club is a Type 2 club which means bays AND splits. I know my Routan is no split nor bay BUT it does haul my family and I would like my family to PARTICIPATE in the club events.

So again I will ask the REST of the club. Is anyone willing to take ONE of the events off of Russell's hands and plan it out?

More details to be posted in their own thread.


I'm thinking this was a bad idea???
Our March event was rained out without any actual rain,
Our April event has been moved to May by the dealership.
We have no event planned for April.
I just talked to Ken who is planning on moving the May event to the first weekend, (no camping?)
and at this time we have no place to put on Familienfest?

I was going to reschedule the March event to be in April but later looked at my personal calendar and cannot fit it in. :sad:

FF location.... well we will see what happens Sunday.
