Wouldn't it be cool to have an RJ party?

    But strictly non-sexual party.

    Where each year there's a party at a specific venue and we all go there. Do you think it would be safe? Is there even such thing at the moment? But then all you guys are probably gonna be like 'why would I want to hang out with guys from here when I can do so in a gay bar...' What do you think?

    It is not clear to me there would be much interest, unfortunately. I couple of weeks ago I started a thread about regional forums that would facilitate guys getting to know each other in a given area, which, in turn, could facilitate get togethers.

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1113552/

    A few guys responded showing interest, but there wasn't much response. A couple of us bumped the thread a few times so it would get more exposure and generate more interest, but it did not happen.

    I like the idea of the regional, or even state-wide forum/get-together.

    Something on a national, and we must include our international members too, would be a big undertaking and should get the blessing of the RJ Powers That Be.

    If they believe it would be a good idea, then committees need to be formed in order to take care of specific logistics like securing hotel space, planned events, promoting the event, athletic functions, and the list goes on.

    Let's present this idea to the RJ hierarchy and see what they think...If this is a good idea to them, I would volunteer to help make it happen.

    Take a look at the thread via the link I posted a few messages above. Feel free to add to it and bump it up again. From my experience with the sports car forum, activities can vary from area to area. Committees were not set up. Usually 1 or 2 guys would take the lead in each area, arranging space in a breakfast or lunch spot, and securing some type of parking. Doesn't need to be overly elaborate unless there are many guys showing up.

    Thank you. I will do that, and I believe the OP here should consider this as well.

    The same thought has been going thru my mind, think its a great idea. Interesting to see how many of the negative attitudes would actually show up face to face??? keithicon_cool.gif

    It would be a great idea. However, it would not succeed here in Buffalo or anywhere else in upstate New York because realjocks here are either too busy or somewhat anti-social.

    I think it would be a great idea but it would be an undertaking for sure. I think it would be cool to meet some RJ folks face to face. Now how successful it would be...good question! Then again, define successful.

    Problem is .....

    Realjock has men from all over the world as well as the country
    You get guys together in LA then the East Coast guys get gipped
    Do it in NY and the guys in San Fran get their noses outta shape

    If we could do an excursion
    where everybody could go
    and it was something that would interest most of the guys
    I'd be up for it

    Suggestions?

    Well, I tried to get Los Angeles RJ guys together for an RJ Party and watch my wrestling documentary at the film festival out there. Nobody from RJ showed up.

    How would we be able to promote this to all ages of RJ members and get them to come?

    Say if I went I wouldn't want to be the only 19 year old lol. And similarly I'm sure a 60 year old probably wouldn't want to be the only one...unless he was a sugar daddy. <--ok this just got a bit sexual icon_rolleyes.gif

    ages? nations places everything... hmmm, I would like to host this event, but like I said, it would need to be bigger than just RJ, more gay organisations would be good

    After some thought here......

    This would be a fun get-together. No doubt about it. Look at what would have to be done though....

    Let's say there are 2,000 of us and roughly 500 decide to show up for this. Where do you have an event like this for 500 committed attendees? A block of rooms at several hotels would have to be secured first. Then, what about a meet and greet in a ballroom at a hotel? Athletic events? Breakout groups with exercise/fitness/wellness, etc.

    There is a heck of a lot of planning that would have to go into something like this and I propose the RJ administrators be given this idea initially....promote the positives in something like this happening.....and we, the members, will have to form dedicated, hard working committees in order to come up with activities.

    Initially, this should go to the powers that be. Guys? What do you think?
