What goes into a FROG event?

I have noticed that there are a bunch of Marylanders here and have thought of the idea of a FROG event in Maryland. But, what I don't know is "why" or "what" we'd do.

What is the average FROG event like? (Assuming the golf cart stunts and antics are already thought of.)

You just find a nice CG, and a date. You don't need anything special, Then after you pick the CG and know there resources you just do it. If you need anything special talk to Bob, and put together a list and start planning. Is that what you mean?....

I guess more of what I mean- would I need to plan for group events, meals, gatherings, etc.? I know Bob's "official" events have full itineraries. But what about the ones that are volunteer started + ran (like what Youroo has going on or the others)?

What do folks expect to happen when they go to one of these? (I've literally been to none- away from the keyboard, I'm quite introverted and have never been to a rally of any sort.)

What you are really doing is getting some people together with the same interest at the same place and date. You really do not need speakers or things like that. You can just have a pot luck or something. Everyone fens for themselves. Your just the person to find and plan a place then advertize on the forum. I would drive up to Maryland. Kinda of a social gathering that's all. Bob will probably send some stickers or something, but keep him in the loop for sure......Think about it and put it out their and see what the responds is.

OK, since you asked.... I agree, just pick a spot and date. Don't get caught up in the details. Pot Luck is the way to go. I put together an event years ago. Bought all the food, entertainment and reserved camp sites.. The whole shebang. I started the planning process with 20 "volunteers" and when it was event time... just me was left

Lessons learned... Keep it Simple!

I've got a little bit of experience planning my family's family reunions. We usually draw a crowd of 75-150 people, depending on where it was. (Sadly, it's gotten smaller over the years- but, what can you do.)

That was a fairly organized weekend with activities on Friday night and Saturday noon-evening.

Interesting, I'll have to noodle this a bit...

Once you have determined dates and location start planning events one at a time. Keep it simple as suggested - maybe a potluck dinner. As others chimes in more ideas will be provided. Some of the best events I have enjoyed are the ones that every moment wasn't planned but then I like Thanksgiving because people are usually willing to relax instead of being in a rush. Getting started on planning is half the battle & things will start coming together afterwards.

A while back I started chatting with another member about a SoCal get-together with maybe a Route 66 theme. Then life happened and the idea sort of fizzled out.
