FOD Location


Paul Spackman
 

Sorry I missed this years FOD.

I for one would like to see a more central location for the Fod and maybe offer some regional venues if there is enough interest. What's your thoughts?

My thoughts are that we've been having more central locations for 15 years but
nobody has yet volunteered to take control of the weather.

I to am sorry to have missed the event, but glad every one is safe and made good weather decisions.

I think the original FOD was conceptually centrally located for maximum availability. Bad news at OGD hostile airport manager and the TSA has moved in impacting access and events.

The FOD was planned for central availibility and it still works well... 15+ years BUT being different once in a coons age is worth a try. The location wasn't the problem (judging from the aborts) but the weather WAS. The west coast boys stepped up for several successful years at Livermore but until Dugas no one on the eastern shores has raised their hand to host
an east coast event. Thanks Dave. Anybody whining about it can raise their hand too.

Richard Kaczmarek raised his hand at the AirVenture QBA Meeting to host next year before we knew that Dave wanted to try it again. This location is a little closer to the mid-west, but what is the proper etiquette here!? IMHO I say that we have more than one gathering if possible. This is quite common among other associations.


BTW - Dave has pointed out that the WX is typically more stable in late September for north central Mass. That's also about the time the trees are in full array.

In my opinion (and as founder of QBA if that means anything) I think Dave should have another shot at the FOD. He is willing, he now has valuable host experience and he has the enthusiasm
and attitude to attract a crowd. There were 4 Q's headed his way (+his own) until the weather hammered everybody. If Dave will try a different weather window and if foliage is in the offing
Richard K could plan for 2015 or do an extra one at his location anytime. God knows that wouldn't be a new thang as extras have been successfully done at Livermore, IA and east of STL.
Putting an FOD together is not as easy as falling off a log nor as hard as digging a ditch to China. Our hosts have a pivotal role in binding us together oh so many years since 
QAC folded its tent. Thanks to all'yall.
