Why are all meets on Wednesday nights?

I have been wondering this for a while. Why are all meets around Houston on Wednesdays?

After seeing the success we had at JCI last night (thanks to NewRider, awesome job) it would be awesome to have larger meets on a weekly basis. There are some of us that can spare more than one night a week (though I am sure we aren't in the majority). It would be cool to hit up Katy earlier in the week, Twin Peeks mid-week, and maybe Inner Loop later in the week.

It's nice to have options.

Thoughts?

...and that's what I kept hearing when I posted it up for Thursday nights: "Thanks for doing it tonight because I can never make it to any of the Wednesday night meets." Must have heard it a dozen times.

One meet a night would be awesome.

there used to be one on Tuesdays that would be at 3b's and then rookies afterwards. But that one kinda died out.

On top of that... If i go riding on the weekend and get tired of the long ride, then i'll have a few days before I'll go out again (WEND) then weekend again...

so yeah, it makes my week into two!

I'll throw my 2 cents in regarding Wednesdays and Thursdays. For those of us fathers with part-time children Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights are the nights that we have our kids. Mondays and Tuesdays might be better. Just saying.

Thursday would be good. I can't make the Wednesday night meets. And I don't care if I'm worthless on Fridays because I usually go home early from work anyways on Fridays.

If we want to meet on Tuesday nights. I grill at winetopia. That is the only night we have food. Ill make some burgers for for $5 hot off a charcoal grill or a Couple of Bratwurts, or Mediteranian Chicken Kabobs. We can have drink specials on the wine and beer for MotoHouston members. The location is San Felipe and Winrock. 1 block east of Voss. I dont mind volunteering to put the meet together and the specials at the bar. I just need a rough headcount so I can make sure I buy enough meat.
