Can We Have Another Bargain Hunter's Picnic?

They were so awesome, even in the simplest forms (a meet-up) ... a great way for sponsors to give out some ad-related freebies, great way to generate a buzz for the site and overall a great morale booster!

So, how about a comeback in 2016 ;)

We need to find a bargain on an area that can be rented out
That's not a knife!

Permit for public park
Community Gym / Space?

Dunno. I agree, the space. If you build it, they will come :)

We're not against the idea but it does require a lot of work. We'll see how things look a bit closer to summer time.

Free or not, it was more about the event itself and putting names to usernames, it was awesome.

But yes, sponsored freebies and RFD stickers were to be had :)

This is an excellent idea. There are lots of people who would like to meet Tom and the moderation team.

It was a fun time, but the first two weren't free. At the first one at Varsity Field, there were free tickets and paid tickets. Paid tickets got food and were $5 if I recall correctly. The problem with the free tickets was that the large majority (like 90%) of the people who signed up for free tickets didn't show up. That's a big issue for planning.

Planning a big event like this is similar to planning a wedding: it takes at least a couple of months to plan and costs a similar amount. The "sponsors" we had contributed the prizes we gave away, but everything else was out of pocket. The selling of tickets was mostly to make sure people showed up and didn't come anywhere near covering the per head cost :)

Sign me up though if the current crew can put it together :)

free is what defines RFD but as a long time member of RFD I wouldn't mind chipping in a few dollars.
