No, no, your vote stays the same. Yours counts just as much as anyone's. I'm sure many are not sure they can do something - 100% - in June. I shouldn't have said anything - was just whining a little there...if it turns out that way, so be it. I'll still help plan if the others are okay w/that.

Hmm, I thought the announcement was very visible at the top of every board. But, it could be because I was expecting it and looking for it. It's probably not too late for anything yet. But maybe we'll let Dr. Bob get settled back into a routine after his trip, and then the committee can discuss where we're at with a firm date.

Plz keep offering your ideas - they are always creative and much appreciated :-)

Okay, I'm going to come out and say it...Is there really enough support and people committed to coming to actually have the event?

I don't mean to be a downer, but is there a minimun number of folks attending to break even? I suppose it depends on what scale event you plan, but I'm a bit concerned at the low response.

I don't see why not.

We just plan it at a McDonalds instead of the VFW hall.

(Just kidding, Dr. Bob. I know I'm not on the committee.)

Seriously, this has happened on other occasions. Dr. Bob has said he's going to be going to a certain city, even a city where Babblers are known to live, but in the end few actually show up to greet him.

But a small party can be fun too.

 

Can it be at Starbucks? :-D (nm) Dinah

>>i whip through the boards

Now see, I'm like you at times, too..I first read that as something like, " I [I'm carrying] or [have a] whip through the boards"..which I'm sure might be useful at times, but could also mean trouble...

now you be careful with that thing, rain...:-D

> hehe i hope more people vote :-)

Me, too, me, too.

Hmm, not sure what "good point" refers to, but thanks for your preferred dates. I think that's fairly important to know ;-)

We've had only 11 posters vote (12 when Mel sees my post, I'm sure), not including yourself. One person said she didn't "notice the notice" on each board for a long time. I wonder if that could have been true for others? (I thought it was prominent, but that's just me)

I suppose I'm wondering what kind of response - numbers-wise - you were anticipating? Twelve seems low to me. And I'm not alone...

http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/admin/20050323/msgs/476983.html

But again, I don't have enough prior experience, or a strong enough "feel" for the group/community as a whole to base anything on. I don't know quite what the "original" idea for the Babble birthday party entailed, either.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

 

Committee, above post for you, also. Thx :-) (nm)

I had no idea what to expect! I don't think 12 would interest CNN, but I think it would plenty for a good time. :-)

I think you should make another announcement banner Dr bob, a louder and brighter one :-)

Is that what the committee thinks should be the next step? :-)

2 cents:
I rather think that we've heard from those who have a preference for when the party should be already.
But a reminder of when the party is to be held and an opportunity to be included in the count would be a good thing. Like a "sign up here" notice.

In reply to Re: another announcement Dr. Bob, posted by partlycloudy on April 1, 2005, at 9:00:18

I agree. There's probably no need to repeat the "pick a date" step again.

The final count for choice of dates is:

13 posters voted (including Dr Bob)

6/4 - 9
6/11 - 4 (plus one "maybe")
6/18 - 5

FYI, I can now only attend on 6/11. As it appears that probably won't be the date, maybe I should bow out of the committee now. Those committee members who are actually going, can probably plan the rest themselves - especially with quite a small group. I'd still be willing to help in any way I can, though.

Or I can stay on the committee. I just don't know if I'm comfortable having input on any decisions arranging a party I can't attend :-(

Either way, I'm fine with it.

It's up to the committee :-) but IMO, posters don't have to come to have input...
