OK, time to start sounding like a broken record...and rant...

With no full info as of yet on the summit itself, I doubt anyone is going to actually book a room...in fact I'm thinking of letting mine go...so there might be 4 rooms available. People need to run and plan their schedules...and with no info on whether this is really going to happen...how much it's going to be....etc...etc...

We need info!!!!!! Confirmation....

I know I'm sounding like an ass, but I don't really care at this point...I booked my room over 2 months ago...expecting to be able to plan my life around this so I could attend...I now have a class I have been putting off that is during this week...and with no info believe it's time to give up on this actually happening and book my class instead.

I know this takes time and people that have stepped forward to help plan this have their own lives as well as this summit to plan, but myself as well as others have offered MANY times to help out...and I for one have not been taken up on that offer.

Any info would have been better than none...I believe their was more than a month where people asked and all we got was it's getting planned...just wait....

Really...who cares if there are rooms available...

Yes you sound like a rant. There is a websight with info. This is a gathering planned by rank and file amateurs, grassroots members of this forum. We have:

- Set up a website
- Preregistered attendees
- formed non profit corporation to handle the financials
- got bank account to handle funding
- got volunteer legal and accounting help
- solicited and got confirmation Toyota will be sending Trail Teams
- oraganized hotel deals for attendees
- researched and presented as many accomodations as possible, hotels, B&B, campgrounds etc
- provided viral marketing through "Ouray of the Day" and many many other threads
- solicited sponsors
- talked to BLM and Forest Service, got appropriate applications for permits
- talked with Chamber of Commerce and other Ouray contacts
- Made trips to Ouray
- Solicited necessary insurance for trail permits
- Design graphic and website, forms for preapplicant and, soon, applicants
- opened Pay pal account to facilitate registration
- planned two catered meals
- answered hundreds of emails
- debated sponsorship levels and club affiliation
- discussed and did discovery regarding liability and risk
- debated fees and attendance limits
- research and wrote release forms
- Solicited and conducted a t shirt contest
- solicited items for raffle
- planned trails and levels
- secured a tent and meeting place
- within 2 days we will have registration up ( about 75 bucks)

"Really...who cares if there are rooms available..."

I'm looking forward to this incredible event, Hope you will too. Email me if you have specific needs or questions.

Re: Box Canyon Lodge

By the way. The FJSummit will not be summer camp. We are setting up the basics, not planning every hour. It will be up to each individual to have good time!

So plan your vacation: take your family, shop, explore a ghostown, ride a train, mountain bike, fish, discover a quiet place, face your fear, make love in the woods, smell the air, chase a dream, take something, leave something (not your trash), camp , hike, take a picture ( or a 1000 pictures, K2). The best things you come awat with from a vacation may be the things you never anticipated...

Re: Box Canyon Lodge

FJ4GD, maybe you're having a bad day. I said to trust us that it was still coming. If we'd heard other info that it was NOT going to take place, I would have posted it. We're getting ready to post registration within the next few days, in fact. We're taking our time to get it RIGHT. Please be patient. Hope you make it

Re: Box Canyon Lodge

Since I drove to Ouray from Phoenix last weekend.May I offer a suggestion?
We had a burger at the Goldbelt Bar and Grill and since I knew we would be revisiting, I asked the bartender if he knew of the summit we were having. He told me he knew nothing of it and didnt believe his boss knew either. I told him there were 500 plus invading his town. He was really suprised.
I did stop in the visitors center and they provided me with pamphlets , flyers and current events for Ouray, they did know of the Summit with marks on the calender. Could someone find out from the chamber of commerce if local merchants will be advised of the event? I am sure that type of turnout would mean shortages in everything unless they are made aware of this.
I do see the extensive list of items addressed and am confident this has been thought of , (probably the chamber of commerce is responsible) just in case they missed that.
I really look forward to the event. That place is flat awesome.

Thanks
Don

Read your other threads about your trip. Coool you made it up there. I am sure the alpine trails are still closed, I promise, you will be impressed.

Your suggestion is a good one. We, in fact, have been in close contact with the Chamber since this ad hoc committee was formed. Its possible not all merchants will know we are coming, but we will be sure to continue to update the Chamber. Ouray is a small town, but a tourist town, the Hot Springs is a BIG summer draw, I doubt they will run out of burgers, but if they do... try the pizza, it's good there also!

Look forward to meeting everyone!!
