    This is a good opportunity to set a precident for one facet of how the Columbus FanForce will operate while I am City Rep. If there is a major conflict in the future regarding group activity that has been decided in an official meeting that needs to be decided before the next meeting, I think it would be good if it would be addressed to me and then I will post an "official" thread giving everyone the opportunity to read about the problem and voice their opinions regarding the topic. That way we don't have a mass of confusion. At that point, each member will be given the opportunity to vote and then if a 2/3 majority is reached, a change will be made.

    Now, I'm talking major changes, not if you want to start a thread on something that will not be a change to the group's activity.

    That being said: Kevin aka ItalianJedi has brought up a good point regarding our May 12 meeting: it's on Mother's Day. hmmm. . . As a result, (and I abhor doing this) I am proposing a change in the meeting to some degree. Either moving it to the day before: Saturday, May 11, OR moving it to later in the evening on Sunday. As I said, I hate doing this, but in light of the holiday, I think it's proper to at least address the idea. Any input should be posted by Tuesday evening. Wednesday morning, I will have myself or Matt call for a vote in the thread and voting will cease at midnight Wednesday. That way, Thursday morning, the results will be posted in the same thread to give everyone ample opportunity to see the adjustment.

    I hope this doesn't hurt anyone's feelings or sound like I'm trying to lord my authority over everyone. I've given some thought to this since Kevin brought it up earlier today, and I think this is:
    1. Giving everyone in the group a voice
    2. Ensuring decisiveness and giving everyone a sense of consistancy and confidence in the order of the group.

    If this is offensive to anyone, please PM me with your objections rather than post something argumentative or inflammatory on the boards. I am always open to any opinions that will be beneficial for us all. I'm not interested in being the boss, I just want to use the leadership role I've been given to serve the group by maintaining order and ensuring everyone is treated fairly and evenly. Thanks for your understanding.

    I have no problem with changing the time or date of the next meeting. Any time Saturday or later Sunday will be just fine.

    BTW Colin, I know leadership is a lonely position but don't be affraid to lead. Besides you know that Emperor Palpatine would never second guess himself don't you? ;)
    (Of course he would simply fry anyone who second guessed him with force lightening too, but thats beside the point :D)

    How about Friday night? The 11th. We could do pizza and play a game or two.
    Or later on Sunday night like 7:00 p.m.

    Friday night is actually the tenth. That wouldn't be very good for me. Don't know about anybody else though.

    ***Clarification***

    In the original post, I didn't indicate WHICH Wednesday would be the voting day. discussion will be open through NEXT Tuesday (the 8th) and the vote will take place NEXT Wednesday (the 9th).

    Sorry for the confusion. :confused: . . . it happens.

    You just post the change I'll take it into account. I think that moving it to the day before mothers day would probably be smarter though.

    Hey guys. Since I don't have any family in Ohio (specifically my mother), I'm for either. We can keep it sunday afternoon, move it to the evening, or move it to saturday...anything is good for me, as long as it's not in the morning of either day.

    I'm bumping this topic so that no one forgets to read it, comment, and vote. The vote will take place Wednesday (tomorrow) from 9:00-ish until midnight. If you have any specific questions or comments, feel free to PM me; or you can post them on the board if you would like.

    Thanks,
    CK

    Hmm...Friday's definitely out for me, and Sunday is probably out as well because of Mothers' Day.

    I am going to go ahead and post the voting options. You can select the number of the option you prefer to make it easy to count.

    1. Sun @ 3:00 (no change, original time)

    2. Fri @ 7:00

    3. Sat @ 7:00

    4. Sun @ 7:00

    These are the opinions I've seen stated in the thread thus far. Please vote for the option you prefer. Vote once, as the first vote will be the vote counted and any subsequent vote will be disregarded. If you need to change your vote, edit your post in the 90 minute alloted time. I will close voting at midnight tomorrow per the Snowboard clock (Keep in mind that the boards are based on PST. We will consider the time adjustment to EST by adding three hours to post time and by that determine midnight.).

    For the next 24.5 hours, please post your vote, no more. This will keep things consistant with the guidelines I set forth in the original post. As always, if you have something you would like to address to me, please feel free to PM me.

    Thanks, all. . . and please vote so that we can do right by all members of the group. I appreciate your cooperation and consideration for every member.

    The vote from Jorda Fett is supposed to be from me. I didn't notice that he had logged me off and himself on. He will probably be attending with me, but since he is only 10 you can just count our vote as 1.
