Suggestions for national (and what some say about the choice)
Eden- two many people walking around naked. It is a family event
Nirvana- too far from anything and difficult to get to
Atlantis- too wet
If you don't want to go, fine. Why do some seem to wish to convince others not to go? That's the impression I get.
The experiment is over. Forums are not my cup of tea. See you at F.L.
are carry ins allowed?
MOA members have a legitimate interest in that newspaper article. I see no need for a forum moderator to belittle a club member just because the article casts a negative light on the location of a rally. If you don't like the news, don't read it.
In the meantime, I suggest you take a chill pill instead of baiting club members.
Yep we do have a right to the truth, but what was misquoted was NOT THE TRUTH...but wait, the real article says SWIMMING POOL not drinking water, and I do believe the supposed quote mentioned drinking and showers as something we should worry about next year.. So the issue here is the intentional misquote by a member in order to stir up trouble and doubt of the sanitary conditions at Gillette, which is a slam dunk and dead wrong.. OBVIOUSLY if he had posted the article and let us all see what the real thing said instead of misquoting it for ?unknown? reasons, this thread would have been flushed along time ago.
I suggest everyone involved, including you and I take a chill pill and flush this thread. Hopefully end of story.

I flew to Gillette a few weeks ago just to see how bad/good it is.Spent an entire day and night and was not impressed.So I cancelled my reservations and will wait for a more appealing location for a National.The National is far more to me than a place in my mind-it's a destination.Those of us who share our opinions,whether pro or con,are the ones who help those who cannot/have not visited Gillette before.I for 1 appreciate an oppsing view as it allowed me to make that trip and decide,firsthand,that Gillette isn't for me.
As someine said earlier,the motto might read,"Gillette,it's not for everyone".
Someone mentioned Du Quoin earlier.It was my 1st and only National.I didn't camp but had a great time.There were trees and shade and everything I thought conducive to a nice rally.
When I attend a rally,I will spend the vast majority of my time on the rally grounds,which must be appealing to me.I'll do my exploring both before and after the rally.
So in my opinion,seen firsthand,there are no half truths or innuendo regarding Gillette,on my part.
Red pretty well covered my take on this thread. But I might be wrong. Rather than make more assumptions, I asked Greenwald to explain why he posted the information.
p.s. I'm not, as has been repeated ad nauseam, a forum moderator. I'm the plumber. While I can turn the water off for the entire building, I don't decide who gets to take a hot or cold shower.
