Umm... reading comprehension never hurts... they said they would post the numbers TWO weeks ago. I did not spring this on them the day after Xmas. And I have always said they did a great job. (lol, the whole thread was only 10 posts..., ADD?)

If you raised a large amount for charity, why would you wait 6 months to post it? If they are doing this for profit, I don't care, I'll still pay and go to it. Just LET US KNOW.

Savvyav, read the whole thread, not ragging, just wanted info.

Re: Summit 2007/2008 accountability

I really don't enjoy the tone of this post. It's the holidays - we are all with our families. The problem for me is that this isn't the first time 5280 has posted something that is pushy for the team- last year it was a few other topics.

We'll have your numbers. In the meantime let us enjoy the holdays. We did this FOR FREE FOR YOU - please try not to forget that. Thanks.

Sorry if that makes me sound like a jerk - I personally have been incredibly busy as have the rest of us. Please try not to forget this is not our primary job, and that we all have careers that take up exceptional amounts of our time. In addition the Summit takes up another BIG portion of our free time. We may not always deliver on time, but we do always deliver.

My semi related rant:
Oh, and after seeing the stuff put together, hours in, banners, etc atta boy is cool and all, but these guys (I think) an OVER comprehensive package (no way ANYONE could be at all places all times, all trails, all raffles.....over load!!!)

So give them a break, Iím sure this next run will cover a lot of these issues (where money went, getting trail guides ahead of time to commit to schedule, time, and rules. This was a small group, wearing many hats. Please donít fault as if organization isnít a strength, just a lot to contend with.

Oh, and PS Boston and crew, you suck (didnít want any big heads, you wouldnít fit in your FJ.)
lol thank you! that was nice to hear. The FJ is big - my head will still fit!

You are not coming off as a jerk, the "other" poster is. As I have shared with you before, I have put on events of similar magnitude and I'm always amazed how there are those that feel they need to know the intimate details of how every dollar was spent as well as justification for doing so.

You are only truly accountable to yourself, partners and IRS. Yes, you guys have been more than open and upfront with virtually every aspect of the event, that is your choice but not a requirement.

If anyone wants to see such information, the respectable thing to do is go through the PM process and not "call you out" on the forum. Remember what I told you at the Summit that this would happen. No matter how well everything goes, the MASSIVE amount of giveaways in the raffle, incredibly smooth operation for a seasoned event, let alone a first time event, there will be those that want to put the organizer's feet to the fire.

I wouldn't expect anything from the "accounting" department until the next event, where the organizers can stand up and publicly announce to the participants the past event's proceeds, which organizations received "X" amount of donations, even give a representative the "giant check" as a photo op/positive publicity/promotion time.

But, being pressured on this forum is bad form...

When I saw this post, I actually thought of you telling me this sort of thing would happen.

That's our plan next year by the way - to hand over the checks at the dinner, and it will be a nicer exchange for us and the town.

Jason, don't forget to add the "VOLUNTEER" t-shirt that ya'll gave
Makayla (LilMissTNSquire) for helping pack the driver bags
and selling raffle tickets & Summit merchandise.




I would hate to think she got one for just being cute.

ha nice! Great picture. I believe that was the first time I met Mike (Shadow Warrior). Makayla helped us out a lot - she was a trooper!

Re: Summit 2007/2008 accountability

I wouldn't be coming back to the Summit if I didn't trust the event organizers and the way the whole event was run. I am very grateful they had the foresight to make donations in the first place. The conduct of the event organizers, the participants and the donations all helped the Summit gain a nice respect from the locals in and around Ouray. I have been up to Ouray twice since the event last summer and the whole town loved having this new bunch of FJers come to town.
Keep up the good work people, your efforts are appreciated.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!
