i think initially it would be a great idea to try to get some people from different areas to meet up, but maybe start off with people setting stuff up by region. To do a nation wide event would mean probably a years notice in advance to get it all set up and for everyone to be able to get the time off and save the money for the trip. I actually have thought of this idea myself. If we did do a national one, a member who lived closest to a major airport hub would probably be the best way to make it as affordable as possible. LA, Minianapolis, salt lake, JFK....ETC are all very affordable airports to fly into in comparison to ones that dont get as much traffic

Kansas City or Oklahoma City, both are affordable and centrally located. And Marc is right, there is ALOT of little things that go into a rally and it take about a year of planning to get it to come together. Alot of your vendors, site reps and displays (like the ford power tour) need at least a 8 month advance to schedule anything.

While true they are geographically centrally located (and close to me ), airlines don't function that way it seems. Alotta flights coming in and out have connecting flights you haveta catch. So it would be of benefit to pick a place with a larger hub, like St. Louis, Dallas, or Atlanta for examples, for ease of travel.

Course what fun is it to have a convention with no trucks? So some place with a large local member base would be a plus. They could also help with local logistics such as where to stay, good places to meet, etc.

Nother thought is to maybe work out a package deal with a hotel/resort. Say we can get X number of people here, what kind of deal can they cut us for rooms, meals, convention hall, etc.
