2nd Inaugural RIBnet Conference

Following the sucess of the 1st Inaugural RIBnet Conference (see here http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1418) and with 2004 approaching a few people have started muttering. As well as muttering some people have mentioned that the 2nd Inaugural RIBnet Conference - 2004 should start taking shape.

To give Charles and Brian a break Ageing Youth and myself have voluntered to organise it.

The way i see it we need to 'discuss':

1) Location
2) Rough time of year
3) Specific dates

Then a dictortatorship decision will be taken by Kevin and Myself, hopefully, to follow the majority.

First suggestions are:

Solent area
Late spring / Early summer
Mopre specificaly the 4/5/6 June - RIBex weekend (see here http://www.ribexhibitions.co.uk/)

A quick tip Kevin and Daniel.
Stick your peg in the ground and get everyone to work around your dates. As many people as there are on this forum, is as many opinions you will get.
I believe there will be a 'healthy' contingent of people going to RIBEX 2004 - so, it would be logical to all meet up at Cowes and blast around the Solent with our RibNet burgees proudly flying from the A-frames.

Hey, i've done my side of the organising, it's all over to Kevin now

Seriously, i like the way you set a date last year - good method of organising, lets just give it a few days for any other serious suggestion to come through... there might me some other more suitable date or location i hav'nt thought of.

Okay folks I'm up for it, but how about the 3rd one being somewhere other than the SOUTH RUDDY COAST?

Now Keith, you know the answer already don't you? Organise it yourself

Judging by the turnout for the Second Inaugural (what do you mean you couldn't get there?) RIBnet Conference in Kirwkwall, dahn sarf is possibly a good bet. There do seem to be quite a lot of interim conferences being organised in North Wales though

Can't let that one go Keith... actually most of the population does. And if you filter the sample to the boat-owning population, I'm sure that the percentage would rise further still.

Anyway, Solent must actually be closer to Birmingham than the Pentland Firth - by several hundred miles!

I would like to se the date being around the same time as Ribex. This way I could join both at the same time.

Stop howling about towing the boat.

If you can put these events at the same time and place, I'm bringing my boat from Copenhagen.

Meeting

My opinion is that we should combine the 2 events as well, We could all meet up at the show and then cruise somewhere in the afternoon for a get together etc, maybe to Weymouth / Dartmouth etc.

There are no conferences being organised in North Wales, just great fun days and weekends out. This is what it's all about isn't it?
Charles has it spot on. If you are arranging the event, set the dates. People will fit in with the dates if they want to, especially if you are planning for next year at this stage it gives everyone time to sort themselves out.
I'm sure the North West could put on a good do for 2004 if RIBnet would get the support from southern visitors.

Keith, are you up for it, could arrange a sib crossing of St. Tud's East to St. Tud's West .......... and back!!!
