I agree completely, it is sad that some people are making decisions that are probably based on innuendo and gossip. I doubt that the politics of the organizers will affect the attendees.it's unfortunate that something that doesn't involve any of us.... nor does it change the summit... can change a person's mind. It's an automotive rally/event.... why can't we just have fun and enjoy everyone's company?
Last year was a lot of fun, we enjoyed putting faces to many of the members of the forum. I am not sure how some of the vendors "got screwed". Considering that Springtail probably had the most remote location, we felt that the exposure was wonderful and that seeing the other vendors products in person was great. The organizers were accomodating and the the events seemed well organized. It is true that you could go on your own...but I can say from experience that FJ Summit is a super value compared to the competing off-road vacations (cost for 2 adults at a Ouray Jeep event would be $500.00). AND you will just be missing out on a bunch of fun!
I would highly recommend the experience to anyone.:bigthumb:
Sadly, we will not be attending the Summit this year...this is due to a scheduling conflict and has nothing to do with organizers of the event.
