April 20, 2011What efforts would YOU like to see made, by our newly elected President, to make our chapter as lively as it once was? Also, what new GTG`s would you like to see happen, and where? Be specific.

April 20, 2011with fuel prices where they are and rising some people might not be able to make some gtg`s but, having some at events like the bloomsburg truck show , the diesel event at numidia or carlisle or something more neutral would be a good idea plus i`d like to see both nominees put on the site what they would like to do if elected so everyone can be better informed
April 20, 2011Personally, I would go to the members for GTG ideas. Also, I would be travelling to all gtg`s, as long as they don`t interfere with my work schedule. As well as travel to all areas of the state for the GTG`s, not just the ones in my own backyard. I drive tractor-trailer for a living so travelling comes natural to me and I like meeting new people. I also have some ideas on ways to get discounts on parts for members. Anything else anyone wants to know post it here and I will answer asap. I`m all
April 22, 2011To be honest with you, this chapter will never be like it used to be. I hate to say it, but it`s the truth. Things just aren`t like they used to be. I know a lot of people don`t have the time they used to have. Heck, I am 10 miles from Carlisle and I`ll be lucky to get down there for any shows. (I didn`t make it to ANY last year.) Just too much stuff going on, and when there isn`t anything going on, it`s nice to just relax sometimes. A lot of members lives have changed, people have bought houses, got married, had kids and some don`t even have the extra money to go to GTG`s. Without having a fair amount of people to post up regularly on the site, you`ll never get good attendance at a GTG unless it`s a show, like Bloomsburg 4 wheel Jamboree. For example, the Cabela`s GTG we had planned. If it wasn`t for Paul and Renee going, I wouldn`t have planned on going myself. Since I`m dating Paul`s daughter, I planned it mainly for her to see them. Other than that, I just have too much stuff at my house that needs taken care of. But that`s just me.
Now don`t get me wrong, I`d love for the chapter to have GTG`s and I`d love to have the time to attend them. But with the economy the way it is, I think that explains itself. Maybe in time, the site and chapter will turn around and be the way it used to be. Til then, we can just hope for the best.
April 22, 2011Miss you Matt wish you would have come up here this weekend with Jess!
April 23, 2011Look just because the economy is bad it has alot to do with peoples schedules.Heck the last gtg we had I rode my bike too(harley).
Time are changing but lets all make the best out of it.
If you plan a gtg long enough ahead of time it helps alot to achieve maximum turn out,its hard to accomodate everybody just keep plugging away.
Best of luck
April 24, 2011the one point that is being missed here and should be addressed is the fact that it is not the Chapter Presidents responsibility to arrange GTG`s or shows or any other type of meetings with members of this site.
ANYONE can arrange GTG`s, shows, meetings in any forum of this site.
the super duty guys use to have GTG`s all the time that had no affiliation to any one chapter.
the Pre`s use to do the same all the time.
the responsibility of putting together a meeting or a show or a get together can fall on any member of the site who has the time and energy to do so.
you do not need to be a president or a vice president of a chapter to do so. you just have to do it!
their are a lot of things that go on out here on the eastern part of PA that I would not except some one from the western part of the state to travel 6 hours for two hour meeting to come to.
it just would not be fair. there are shows that I would love to make every year out west that I just can not make because of family issues.
some day I hope to be able to do some of those things and meet a whole lot more members of the site. not just of the PA chapter
April 24, 2011That is very well said George and it doesn`t even have to pertain to gtg`s either. If I had the money to front to have t-shirts made again, it doesn`t have to be the prez that arranges it....If everyone works as a team, that is where the greatest success is!
April 24, 2011very good point Renee!
these kinds of things can be done by any one who may have the contacts to get a good price on things like shirts or hoodies or base ball caps for that matter.
or decals, if you have access to a decal machine or know some one who does it for a living and can get a good price you could do site decals or chapter decals.
if there is something you would like to do for either a chapter or a forum to this site by all means! have at it!
it can only make things better.
April 25, 2011See you had missed the point that rednecklimo was trying to make he asked what you wanted to change. Or what what you like to see a president do.???
April 25, 2011NO, you`re missing the point, it is not the Presidents duty to set all of these things up.
April 25, 2011the only responsibility of the president and the vice president is to maintain the chapter forum,chapter webpage and chapter photos. greet new members.
we can organize get together`s, shows and things of that nature. But anyone associated with the site can do that as well.
you do not have to be a chapter member of any state. you just have to be a member of the site.
