Dave,
PM me the Forum with the strong BC chapter. I'm interested, but I'm sure open posting it here would be frowned upon

Please send me a PM with the other forum.

Sometimes you win - sometimes you loose. I would think if you knew that "this chapter is lacking members" that you would only get a few entrants.

But that has nothing to do with actually changing the draw date and rules.

As the owner of a diesel repair shop 75% of the people that come in say "I was on a chat forum and read that...."
Again this has nothing to do with changing the rules.

Dave, I think you missed the point. Trying to grow the BC chapter was not what came across as negative. I know from personal experience that it takes a **** load of work to grow and maintain a club/chapter/group.

The moment the rules, item and draw date changed the original draw effectively ended.

If I had done that with the group I was involved in I would have been strung up

Sorry that doesn't make sense to me. Why would someone have no interest in the product??? If they're on the powerstroke.org site I would think they'd be interested As far as a draw going to someone that's not interested in supporting the chapter... I think the only way to get around that is to confine your draws to chapter event/G2Gs.

If you think about it this chapter has seem more discussion in the last week than it has in months, possibly ever.... so its already working!
Don't get me wrong Dave my hat's off to you for "trying to grow the chapter". If you want to PM me I am more than willing to help do that

PM Sent Joel, pretty good support on the other Forums huh? Post the results if you don't mind, I think 300+ on the GM and 200+ on the dodge can you confirm. I do not think it is a big deal if you wanna post the links, I cut the cheque for all 3 accounts to the same company for my memberships AutoForums.com.

The reason I said someone may not be interested in the tuner is because someone posted that they were not interested in the tuner?

I do apologies for ruffling so many feathers though!

So many feathers? there is only the three of us here!

I'm not mad, I see both sides of the story on this one.

PM hasn't come through yet for me though. I might join a forum that had a strong Local representation as long as they weren't DB's about a Ford guy coming in.

Good point lol

Not sure on the PM but I am sure AutoForums.com does not mind me telling you to visit the BC Chapters on their GM forum and the Canada Chapter on their Ford Forum.

In the family for that long and no kills? sounds like an un-lucky hunting rifle. haha

Since we totally derailed this thread anyways;


Here is the one I took a few weeks ago. Also 45-70, also that guns first kill.
