Dear fellow Avalanche fans,

It is with much sadness and a heavy heart that I must announce that Avalanches Cruise Niagara will not be held this year. After a lot of soul-searching and discussions with the other planning committee members, we have decided that we cannot devote the time and effort that this event requires and deserves. It's sad to see the passing of an era, but situations change, and sometimes it's necessary to move on.

I wish to thank all of the members who have attended this event in the past. You have made all the long hours of work, the many frustrations, and the expenses all worthwhile. Without you there would be no reason to hold an event such as this.

I would also like to give a special thank you to the numerous members who have volunteered their time, money, and efforts to help with the planning and running of this event, and also for lining up sponsors or donating prizes. Without you, there simply would be no event.

I hope everyone has a great summer filled with exciting and fun-filled Avalanche plans and activities. It's unfortunate that Avalanches Cruise Niagara can't be a part of those plans.

Sincerely,

MrBill - Avalanches Cruise Niagara Chairman

That is the way these things work.  There's a lot of effort that goes into putting an event like this together.  Unless there is a continual infusion of fresh "muscle" an event like this will only happen a few times before the planners need a break and time to attend to other elements in their lives. 

I, like many I am sure, very much appreciate the work that MrBill, SS, et. al. put into the Niagara GTGs that did happen and am very happy that we were able to attend. 

But, there are plenty of opportunities out there -- Bluegrass last year was great -- as was cruising the Whites in New England.  The Arizona group has an awesome GTG planned, there's Crystal River, and Laughlin, and STS (can I say that?), and the International BBQ Festival, and Southern Nights and... and...  Plus I'm still hoping to get to a Hot Dog Run in Jersey some Saturday when we can make it.  ;-)

So to all who made the past Niagara GTGs a big success, I send my  heartfelt appreciation. love

P.S.  Yak, are you still planning the 2007 National GTG in Labrador City?

Thanks Mr. Bill  Wave
I made both NF GTG's.... My schedule is full with GTG's that are fairly local to me so this will save a few thousand miles on the AV this year.

 idea Why Not Niagara ?

How about a joint effort of the Tri-State Area (NY, NJ, & CT) Coordinators (Me, You, & Gary) to put something together for Niagara in spite of it all.

It may not be as grand, but I am sure if we get Stan (NatsCanAv) involved too it will be a lot of fun.  We still have plenty of time too.

I'm sure others will want to help make this happen.

We can have it at the same Motel as last year.  (the night-time parking lot fun was the best part)

I'll give yoy a call Erin.   We can discuss this further and if we decide to we can make some new posts about it.

It should never have been treated as a business in the first place, a "chairman" of a social event? Granted, it needed guidance but it was destined to fail.
There is such a thing as overplanning, it comes at a cost, financial and otherwise.

Mr. Bill,

I would also like to thank you for pulling off a great event last year! A good time was had by all, including my dad and I. It was nice to meet you and other members face-to-face and to talk. It is too bad that this will not be happening this year but I do understand the circumstances. It take A LOT of hard work and coordination to pull a huge event like NF off. I would like to thank you for doing just that and hopefully something can be held again in the near future. I hope to see you and the many other members who have attended NF in the past again sometime soon! Thanks again!  love  You rock!

Sincerely,
Ty
