I can't believe I am about to suggest this but if we do have a big
meeting I suggest we have a strong personality as a chairman, an agenda,
a set time limit for each discussion point and an over-riding aim of
getting back to the beer and games as quickly as possible! I don't want
to spend more than an hour on this and, at the risk of being accused of
acting in secret, would prefer a series of informal chats over beer with
anybody who can be bothered to seek me out.
I'm not sure how this would work - maybe through a flyer on the
registration desk saying "the following people are involved in the
campaign to promote the hobby. They would be happy to listen to your
views over a beer."
Ugh. All sounds a bit makeshift, but I feel in my heart of hearts that
it is all going to come down to a group of half a dozen people getting
off their arses and doing it, and it is up to those half a dozen people
to be responsible and do "it" in a way which does not rankle too many
people. Put another way, the half-dozen should canvas as many opinions
as they can but then be trusted to act without having to get a rubber
stamp from the hobby every step of the way. Kind of like MPs (probably
the worst example I could have chosen!)
