Lets meet the Candidates.. Your questions answered

Come on Ya'all. Start posting some questions for Dr. Moab and myself "Geepfreak" to answer. I am sure there are alot of you who don't not know either one of us. we would like the opportunity to answer some of your question about what direction the club should take, and were we will take it. How being a IC member is better than being a loner or a group of loners. as someone said once,,,, BRING IT ON...

I also would like to know what you expect from us. No matter which one of us wins it would help to know what is on your minds.

Re: Lets meet the Candidates.. Your questions answered

Well I personally would like to to know what your plans are for making this chapter grow ? Do you have any plans for recruting more of the many non member XJ owners around . I am also wondering if you have any plans to make our forum more exciting ? I have watch days and days go buy with out a single new post in the Intermoutain chapter forum . But I am as guilty as the next guy for that . I was also wondering what kind ideas you have for cherities we can organize or be a part of ? And how about trail clean up and repair runs ?

To answer your first question,I think the way to get our chapter to grow is to get out and do more as a group! I am not talking about more trail rides. I would like to see a more social side to this chapter. If we are seen togther as a group,even if it's at a diner somewhere we will be more noticable. I also think that the stickers we will be getting will help alot if members run them on there XJs. I think word of mouth is the best ad for what we do.
As far as making the fourms more exciting, by gathering more members we will have more traffic on the fourm. Trail clean ups and repair runs are also a great idea. I think by involving ourself with bigger groups...which to an extent we already are is one way. We should think maybe about having a commite that works on land use issues. Someone or a group or people that could work on our behalf to get the BLM, Forest Service and other Govornment agents aware of who we are and that we would like to be apart of any event like that or to make our own cleanups,repairs,ect ect.
Also the more members we have the easier it will be to do this.

Re: Lets meet the Candidates.. Your questions answered

Chapter meetings:
Hooters or dealership?

Fundraisers:
XJ cookies or bikini car wash? (naturally we'd have to enlist help)

Cup:
Half full or half empty?

Ice Cream:
Blue Bunny or Cream O' Weber?

Women:
Kate Beckinsale or Charlize Theron?

Vehicle:
Aztek or Pacer?

There you go getlemen. You will have one response and one followup response to your opponent.
What say you?

Re: Lets meet the Candidates.. Your questions answered

Not trying to sway votes, but I know several trail that have asked for adoption, so that they be and kept open, mainly in the San Rafael area. as for recruiting new members, I see on a daily bases modified XJ's, with no affiliation to any Off Road group. Placing cards on the windshields is a good start, but as I saw Jeff(current IC pres. do) go talk to them for a moment, I encourage all of us to do that! As for the Forum, to make it more exciting, every IC member needs to post, tell us what is going on, what trail you have done over the weekend, what you broke,. not that all of us need to know minute by minute. But hey, throw a bone now and again. charities,, where do you start, the womens shelter, homless food bank, me getting the new MTR's and RE 6.5 long arm(lol). serious, My opinion(get that,, MY OPINION) is land use, not that it is a charity, but they (we) need alot of flow going that way. MONEY TALKS in Wahington. Back to getting the forum more excitng.. thats what all of us are here for. whats going, tell us you broke an axle on big waterfall. tell us your wife your child. My furnace gave it up on last Sunday, cost me 650 bucks to have fixed on the weekend, would have been 75.00 if it was on Monday.

Re: Lets meet the Candidates.. Your questions answered

I know my input doesn't count, but this sounds like fun so I wanted to play.

Chapter meetings:
Hooters or dealership?

Hmmm....nothing would get done if meetings were held at Hooters. That's a toughie!

Fundraisers:
XJ cookies or bikini car wash? (naturally we'd have to enlist help)

No contest, the bikini car wash wins big time

Cup:
Half full or half empty?

This one confuses me. I completely fill my cup. And after a few close calls playing catcher for our softball team, I started wearing one.

Ice Cream:
Blue Bunny or Cream O' Weber?

Baskin Robbins

Women:
Kate Beckinsale or Charlize Theron?

Again, no contest. Kate ALL THE WAY

Vehicle:
Aztek or Pacer?

My guess is that you drive an Aztek. Am I right?
