As part of the Compton gathering each year a Trad Gang "meet & great" has become part of the tradition. I am going to be helping to coordinate this years event.

We have Saturday morning from 11 - 12 scheduled for a meeting of all Trad Gangers who would like a chance to put a face with a name. We will meet in the main seminar tent.

I was working the booth last year and since I was still in storm recovery mode I didn't make it over to the meeting last year. For those that did, what can we do differently this year to make it better?

I'm planning to have name tags available, and thinking maybe a white board to sign in on. Would some people like to have a round of shooting with different members afterward? Maybe just throw names in a hat to match up groupings so that you can get a chance to get to know some new people?

Any other ideas or suggestions? Just let me know and we'll make it happen [thumbsup]

Joe, Glad to see somebody is still heading this up. I didn't make it last year either because of my storm recovery at home!! [banghead] Hopefully this year I will be around for the get together.

I'm pretty new here but would sure like to meet other members. I plan to be there with my daughter. Nametags are a great idea. This will be our first gathering and it sounds like a blast!!

We are going to be at Compton's but Jason will not be traveling with us. (new baby duties)

So please stop by the booth and say howdy. I'm probably not going to get to the TG gathering.
