i need everyone to reply to this one.
it will help me determine how many people we have
and the geographic area we consume.
we really have some great ideas for group events.
once a month meetings which will consist of,
meeting , a small ride to a location to have lunch.

rides, park bbq's , possibly Sun's games, just friends doing fun stuff.

this will give us a idea on how to make plans.

so i only need you to reply once with
your name and general area you are in.

i'll start it off.

1) Larry Miller aka OvErKiLL{N99} , north Orange Park

one day later 35 views and only 6 people replied.
what the heck , we try to build up something for people to enjoy,
and no one seems to want this.
i sent around 50 to 60 e-mails and private messages out for
people in this area to check this forum for local events and stuff.

i'm sure VorTeXx and MaCDaddy and the other regulars will
chime in.

but we got only a handful of members wanting to make somethings happen,
charity rides , plain ole let's rides , Jaxnite's annual Cowford ride in the
works, Maniac has 2 projects going a charity ride, and Baseball night.
our monthly lunch/meeting , Leesburg. Pegs has a great knowledge of
highways and bi-ways for some great rides.

yet look at the interest in it.
we got like a little over 12 people showing constant interest.
oh yeah and kevin from way down in eustis , who is willing
to kick it all the way up here for some big event.

it is a shame no more seem to care,
and it makes me think why do we bother.

This is true, but if we are gonna make something of this group and this is why we all agreed to go at it on our own, we will need all hands participation <----(did I spell that right? :oops: ). Yes, I know great things take time to grow, but to make great things GREAT, we all have to contribute. So if it is just asking for a location and name, let's get on board and help OverKill (Larry) out. I want to see us become a household name in the biker community and I know we can do it. 8)

Hi everyone, I'm one of the "views" and never responded but now you guilted me into it. I would have attended the last meeting but had family commitments. I'd like to hook up with you guys sometime. I'll try to make it to Buffalo's if possible. I wont know if I can make until Wednesday due to job constraints. Oh, I'm up in Nassau County.

i'm little impatient sometimes.
but i want everything to really start picking up by
may's 3rd Sat. meeting.
Leesburg is coming up and we are poppin' for that.

but i'd like to have some idea of things we got on
the planning table and a idea of people interested.

here is things i do if able to , i see vtx's around town and tell
them of this forum. amazing how many don't know.

tell your friends about the group.

we will have fun even if it is just a small group.
but i always try recruiting.

Well I have been out of town but here is the information. Stuart Pylant aka VorTeXx= Mandarin/Fruit Cove area
I thought Jaxnite was collecting this. Many of these things were discussed at the meeting. Scott took notes so see if you can get them from him. One of the things we discussed was collecting money to buy business cards( ater the logo is designed) to pass out to other VTX'ers and to contact the area dealers to pass this information on also. I sent a message to LaMonster about the name change but have not heard one word from him.

they will probably have to keep north florida,
for the simple reason there are several counties
in the interior of this division. not coastal.
we have 4 divisions south, central, northwest, and north florida.

so to get first coast vtx riders we'd need them to creat a new division.
which i think includes nassau, duval, st.johns and flagler counties, parts
of clay and putnam if that is county palatka is in.
i think it includes the first coastal county of georgia to, camden
where st.marys and kingsland are.

they need to have a map of how they broke florida down
to the 4 divisions they have now, to determine how far
central comes up and where northwest and north florida split.

just my thoughts on the situation i totally would like to see happen.
The purpose in doing this name change was to make us a separate entity apart for the Florida stranglehold. We can deside for ourselves what areas we will take in and how it is run.

Yes, Jaxnite is taking the info, but we are supposed to PM him with phone numbers and e-mail addy's. I'm guilt of not doing this yet. (Sorry jaxnite). I think Overkill was just trying to get an idea where everyone is comming from when we sched. another meeting and stuff.
