Sorry bout that dust thing haha.

Well, if I had to guess, I would say that since the majority of meet population tends to be younger... something as simple as gas prices is what the largest factor is... but beyond that I imagine the current spin cycle the economy is in has something to do with it.

I figured we would lose 25-40% off the top... but that would have given us 70 cars stilll I think we ended up at around 52 cars? So yea... we had some falloff. It was still a great time though and it was great to meet some new faces and put some names to faces as well!

ya it really hurts to see how things turned out this year, i mean we still had more than last year and it was a little more professional which was great. but ya gas prices probably steered many people away. although there are some people who had no excuse to just not show up which honestly im still pissed off with about 10 people. also there has been a huge drop in forum activity, nto on this forum but the bigger forums so that doesnt help. things will get pumped up again can we start working on a city location soon?

yeah i agree with corbs, i think its time to move on to deciding the city, if we wait for 35 votes on the state i think we will be waiting for quite a while still.
