Due to everyone being so busy I thought we could hold an online discussion re- WGD 2012
I think everyone is ok with the Feb 18th date and the hall(Eagle creek is open
Terry Prisk Haven't ask him yet? Awsome speaker avid sportsman- great stories
Don Couzins He will do it. awsome speaker spoke at service last week great message- not sure if he is a sportsman, but has guide Kensington for years
Mike Tyson just spoke at our meeting- great stories? have not talked with him
open for more options-but I think we should hear the speaker before we book him.
maybe even listen to his actual talk??
Would love to book hall right away
I like the 18th and agree we should book the hall. As for the speaker, I also think we should lock in.
I personally think they should be an outdoorsman and have a testimony/message, after all this is an outreach. Just my two cents.
Sounds good with the Feb 18th date Jim.
For the speaker, I think we should look into sportsmen first. If we can't find anyone, or nobody fits the bill, then we go with Mr. Cousins. I completely agree with Dave that he is an awesome speaker and could bring a lot, but I am not sure if he will be able to tie into our theme and group's passion. The sell has always been the outdoors, and I think we need to keep working off of that.
My two cents, it is the entire groups decision however. People, please speak up on this.
Feb. 18th is good. I am also agreeing with the rest, that the speaker should be an outdoorsmen with a good testimony/message. I believe the love for the outdoors is are greatest strength when bonding with other men on our spiritual walks with God.
In Short: I'm Good, Ditto, God Bless !
Ok, time for my 2 cents. I have not seen Mr. Cousins speak. Is he on the KCC website? I will check. I don't doubt Mr. Cousins ability to speak a strong message based on how impressed some of you were. My concern is his ability to "lure" a sportmen to our event. I'm concerned that we will attract sports fans and not sportsmen. On the other hand there is probably some study that shows a strong correlation between hunters and football fans so maybe thats fine.
My suggestion is that we work as a team to look at other speakers that we could use and make a decision within 30 days. Other options are having Jimmy Gretzinger again. He has a part 2 he could speak to the crowd about. He did a great job before and I alway thought we would have him again within a few years.
As for the date...the 18th appears to be ok. I'd ask Sandy to pencil it in either way for now.
