Re: Summit 2010?
If there is going to be a summit in 2010, I'd love to be there. We had a wonderful time this year and can't wait to do it again.
My only worry about the event is for the people that run the show. I know it must to very tiring to run an event like the summit. Just think of all of the time and planning that must be involved. 200 FJ's and families roll into town, now you must be prepared with food and lodging for everyone, setup vendors to support the even and plan runs for everyone with guides.
Then of course you must work with the city itself. Police, EMS and emergency crews are critical to an event like this. With about 500 extra people out on the mountains, one accident that could be a major crisis in itself! You would also have to have work with local vendors to get their support and the police to help route traffic just so we can take a picture! The more I think about it the more stressed I get.
I'd also like to think that I would help with the event, but I know my life is just too busy to dedicate to another cause. I also like to be a bit selfish and have fun at the event and not spend all day stressing over every little detail.
I'm sure that sometimes planning and running the Summit feels like a thankless job, and you wonder why you would ever do it again. So I'd just like to say off a bit THANK YOU to everyone that makes it happen, and let them know their work doesn't go unnoticed! Hopefully we will see you all again in 2010!
