Title: Possibly re-think prize drawing time???
Post by: W1COP on April 05, 2008, 12:15:18 AM
Hi All:
 Not wanting to look a gift horse in the mouth,,,,,BUT,,,,,14:00 to 15:00 seems a bit late for those who travel !!
I understand that those testing (Both administering and taking) should be afforded a chance to win,,,but,,, at the
inconvience to others,,,,usually other plans are made to accommodate them.....
 Getting home at 22:00 or 23:00 after a day and a half,or worst yet driving the full thing in one day for me (About 3.5 way.)
like I did for Near-Fest # II because of work is'nt all that kind to my old body.......The traditional 12:00 or 13:00 would work for me
and many others.....
  Don't get me wrong,I'm not trying to be selfish or self centered but a lot of folks live more than an hour away,,,,I appreciate
ALL the effort that the organizational staff does in putting on the event,obtaining prizes and trying to accommodate ALL,,,,
but as noted in other posts about how long #II's ceromony took would add to the duration adversely.....So I'm throwing this
potential hot potato (or Al Gore "potatoe") out there!!
