We need to determine the month in which we have the 2010 Frisco Meet in KC and you get to help select it. Our poll choices will be either the month of August or September. Please select the best month for you to attend. The exact date will be determined based on the results of this poll and the availability of a suitable hotel facility. After checking into local churches, VFWs, community centers, etc. we have concluded that our best option is to use hotel facilities for our meet. Dora Furlong is checking into hotel facilities in the Harrisonville, Belton, Grandview, Lenexa, Olathe, Merriam (Frisco territory) areas to get us the best deal and the best room rates. Since we are going with the hotel option it is important for us to understand that the availability of our meeting room(s) is dependent upon the number of rooms sold by the hotel. The Frisco nation will need to support the event through your registration fee (TBD) and through your use of the host hotel. Dora is going to get us the info on the minimum number of rooms that need to be sold, the rate (target: $60-$80/night), availability of food service, etc. The 2010 Meet Planning Team will meet later in the month of June and we can meet at my house in Shawnee, KS. Regarding the Planning team here are those I can remember volunteering to help Registration - Richard Napper Clinics - Open Smokey Hill Rail Excursion - Patrick & Dora Furlong Tours - Swap Meet - My memory isn't great so if you volunteered and I have not listed you, please let me know so we can get you engaged. We will need to determine the number & types of clinics, number and types of tours, non-rail activities, availability of food & drink, audio-visual equipment needed, swap meet arrangements (tables, chairs), etc. I believe that we had about 55 Frisco fans at Pittsburg last year and it would be great to meet and see even more of you all later this year. I don't think it is too much of a stretch to think we could increase our attendance to 75 this year. Please participate in the poll and please leave your August and September open for the next few weeks until we get a date nailed down. This is gonna be fun.
