Hello boys and girls:

Here is the test website. It's a little slow, for some reason the ISP I have it on is sucking right now, but this is what I would like to push to the public site very, very soon.

FJSummit 2007 National Meet


What I need from you folk:

First off, go through all the text and make sure I spelled everything correctly. I pretty sure I did, but I'm not an English major so you know....

Lodging:
This is what I consider the most critical right now, because I want to make sure everyone who wants to come, has a place to stay. I've got a list of about 20-25 places that the Chamber of Commerce manager recommended to me, and what I would like to do, is split those names out to all of us, and we can call them and get up to date information about the event. I would like to get information on:

~ Prices for July 11-16th (buffer a day before and after the event, just to cover all bases) ~ How many rooms they have available ~ Group discounts for the club ~ Correct contact information (lets make sure the info we have is the correct info) ~ And anything cool they have that we don't know about.
~ If they would keep a tally of people who make reservations for our group (I realize they can't know if people who already made a reservation are in the group or not, but I'm thinking that this will help us gauge how many people will be registering. Also if we do get a group discount, we can tell people to call if they already made a reservation and to redo it so they can save some money.)

So if there are like 6-7 of us, we each take 3-4 names...what do you all think ? Once we get some data on that, we can upload it to the site. The stuff that is in there is just an example of the data. I'm thinking I may put the information into table format to make it easier to read, with less scrolling, but this gives you an idea of what I'm thinking.


Trail Section:
Here is a list of all the Trails Jeff (CO-Jeff) put up. Let me know what you think of format. I would really like to replace the photos that have jeeps in them, with ones with FJ's in them. I talked to Tim (t2cruiser) and he said he has some pictures of Ouray, and I think others do to. If we could get a collection of those pictures on the trails, that would be sweet. Also, let me know about other trails you want to add. All the pages are static right now, but I will be building a database and inputting this information into that, so making modifications will be rather quick. I will also be added GPS and google earth links, but that can be added later. Jason (Bostonian1976) is going to send TrailDamage.com an email just to make sure we can link to their site for the information.


Sponsors:
This is going to be a complex issue, but is a very important one because this will be one of the main resources for funding the event. I have talked with Jason and Tim about this, and we were thinking a conference call is in order to discuss this one specific issue. I know everyone is getting busy with the holidays, and Jason isn't going to be around this weekend, but I was wondering if we could have a conference call either December 9th or 10th. I know this may be a little pre-mature for some sponsors, but if we can start a dialog with them, and get some things put up on the website, I think that'll work.

Anyway, let me know what you all think and I'll be around, so email me if you need anything. Sorry this email is a little rushed, and my grammer is probably bad, but it's a busy day !!!

Thanks for all your help !

Seth

I also have contacted the Hot Springs Inn,( just N of hot springs pool on the way to KOA) stayed there summer 2006. Real nice and brand new. Closed for the season, I am waiting on a reply from them.

Somebody reported to the site that the Best Western has 5 rooms left that week. I can call and check on this.
