Meet up section
« on: August 17, 2012, 01:40:05 PM »
How about a section of the forum dedicated exclusively to get togethers and meet ups.   One stop shopping and it will keep the threads from disapearing too soon.

Or add to trips/ride reports by changing the description of that category.

On my other forum (Sportsters) this has lead to some great rides...

Need to throw in a Mid-Atlantic region too.  We people South of the Mason-Dixon Line who aren't really in the South i.e. MD, DE, WV, & NoVA.  The Carolinas down and New England aren't really our neighbors.

Think they use the Mason/Dixon line to establish that specific region ;D

Uh yeah, but we aren't even close to Georgia and Florida.  Might as well list events in Alabama with DC/MD/NoVA then.

Maybe we should just start with North America and add regions as needed.   Of course the shear volume of data may be overwhelming.   :o

Get a consensus of how far most of us are willing or able to travel to "meet up" - there's your region size.  That's probably a lot of regions!

How about splitting the regions int state by state sub forums. 
For example,
North America/Midwest/Minnesota. 
That way it is easy look only as far away as you want to go.  I suppose there might not be enough active forum users to make it work for some states/regions though.
