But also 4 wheeler rides have been talked about to no avail. You really did have a tough role to unite people based on a common interest yet the interest lies for different reasons. I hate to say this but KCR may be a dying breed.
CPA (Carolina Powerstroke Assoc.) has had and will have some of the same issues. Grown men and women with businesses, jobs, families, other hobbies, high fuel prices, slick tires, etc. can't always make the G2Gs. I know I can't. There will always be some who don't work or have more control of their time that don't understand the responsibilities some of us have that are more important than a G2G. We are often "called out" when we can't make it. I say set a date, time and place. Leave the food prep (which requires a head count) out of it and hit a good place to eat. Have a relaxed fun time with those that were able to make it. I think when we are not under so much pressure to attend then there will be more attendance. Keep it fun! My $0.02. (Oh and you got to talk bad about the ones that don't show. That is one of the rules, right?
