Smile Meets and Greets: What do you like, what...

Don't you like?

What would you like to see different?

What would you like to add?



So, I have been doing meets for some time now, and have been wondering on what are somethings you guys like and what suggestions you have for changes in the future.

What would help make the meets more apealing? What do you feel will bring out numbers?

I did a few "Central Meets" last year with very good turn out, I would like to set something like this up, but get as many MH'ers as possible. if you have ever met me or talked to me, you know that one of my main goals is to try and meet as many fellow members as I can and to bring our big community much closer.

So I'm asking for your feedback to try and make it more fun for you guys and more apealing.

Here are just some ideas I had: Setting up a MotoGP viewing, Wii games, revive JCI (though I didn't go there in the past, but we might need something other than pp1)

Thank you in advance.

Oh, and not to be a , if you come out make sure you've learn what staggered riding implies. Don't just nod your head and say yes because everyone preaches about it. If you don't understand ask a question.

Ivan you are doing a great job. I try to make them on Wednesdays but since I work nights it can be hard for me to get away sometimes. Looking forward to the next meet. Try to get Princess & EMTAggie to join us at the BW's in katy/cypress but I know it's far for those guys. Maybe sometime we can meet a little closer like at willowbrook or something? The Fox & Hound Pub is a good spot and has lots of room. Not to mention good looking waitresses. Just a thought. I know if we had a meet at willowbrook area we might have a good turn out? Hmm maybe I will head one up and have it at the Fox & Hound and they do have lots of tv screens as well..Hot I got an idea!! Though it doesn't happen often....Maybe even get some free goodies to hand out? hmmm...

I'm working on the free goodies man, but it's proven to be more challenging than I thought. I'm working and thinking of creative ways to be able to offer up free stuff to the guys. might have to donate myself or ask for some (though i dunno how popular that would be)...as far as Wednesday night, I pretty much seal that day for our Katy/Cypress meets, we have had a good momentum going and the guys have been very loyal, so I owe them that much to just keep it going on our side.

But Tuesdays and Thursdays I'm pretty much open for whatever. Places I've thought about are BrickHouse on 290 or Wings n More Marque, Even FreeBirds off Sawyer (we had a good turn out the last time there)...

I want us to at least do one big meet a month for everyone to come out and just hang out, for the "new" people to the site to come and get to know the faces bhind the ScreenNames, and talking so they can understand, that it's all in good fun and everyone on the site (for the most part) is real good people.

This is good, keep it coming.

Well, this last meet we actually had our first girl come to the meet. I hope we didn't scare her too much and she comes back.


This is another thing that I always wondered (since we have the womens section) why do they not come out to the general population? I mean I wonder if maybe before they came out but just didn't like the way the guys acted, but a rider is a rider to me, and a forum member is a forum member to me. I would like the women of MH to come out and hang with us.

I'm up for meeting pretty much anywhere, to me thats what riding is about. I like being on my bike, on the road, hopefully with a couple friends. Bringing more people to the meet/greets is my main thing right now. I think gathering once a month for everyone is a great idea. Baseball season is around the corner and they have great group deals and I know a guy in the front office that caters to groups coming out to Minute Maid so that might be an idea. I hope to see more and more people at each meet, north, south, east, or west, I'll be there if I'm not working.
