How about an proposed agenda/itinery for those that are wavering?
The best would be for you to look up threads of the Plymouth in 2003 and Cowes 2004 RibNet conferences. This will give you some idea what its all about. Perhaps the word CONFERENCE is misleading as we do not sit in a room and discuss ribs & ribbing all day round. You could say it is a gathering of people who share the same passion. The days are spent on the water hence the involvment of local ribsters who know the area and can organise cruises, events, say even a treasure hunt ect. In the evening good food and drink perhaps in the evening a meet with some interesting person who can share some good stories like a local RNLI lifeguard or Coastguard perhaps a lighthouse keeper if such is still around, ect ect ect
Ther organiser should not book accomodation only provide details and each participant / group make their own arrangements
The evening meals should be for all together in the same restaurant
Anybody got any other suggestions?
