Having organised numerous FIAT Club meets, here are some points I can think of, to make the Meets more successful. 1. Let around 3 TFIans take full responsibility in planning and execution of the meet. 2. WRT a City, have two proper organised meets in a year nearby to city + one long drive meet. 3. Have a poll, lasting for about 15 days, to finalize on the venue and date. Decide on the Venue and date at least a month prior to The day. 4. Let the City Meet be in a place feasible for all. Not too far from city. Say 100kms to and fro. May be lunch drive to a nominally priced restaurant with ample parking. Encourage Members to participate with their families. 5. Long drive be a total of 350 - 400 kms. Route info, road conditions, staying facilities, weather conditions etc should be well discussed. 6. If city meet, have a small round of Intro of all the members at the venue. If long drive meet, have an Intro round of all members before the start of the drive. 7. Set speed limit for long drives, and most importantly all should ensure not to break any traffic rules, for benefit of all. No speeding and no clicking pics of speedo! 8. No alcoholic drinks should be consumed by at least the drivers while driving or during food time. 9. Decide among the members and choose 2 or 3 best photographers for official photography to avoid every member clicking some random pics every time at every stop.. Allocate some time for group photographs and all members should co-operate during the photo-shoot. Avoid clicking pics while driving for safety reasons. 10. Help FIATians without FIATs, by car pooling during the meets. 11. During long drives, ensure members are carrying basic first aid needs for themselves and for their beloved FIATs! 12. If possible, atleast 2 sms reminders and 3 mail reminders totally, before and after finalizing the meet details, to all TFIans of that city. 13. After giving our best in organizing the meet, lets be content with the number of participants who eventually take part in the meet and no competition/comparison of any sorts with Meets of other cities. TFIans: Post in your views please! Let TFI City meets rock!
