We all  love you Amos! Oh well I'm sure everything will be fine. It is sad that both were scheduled on the same day but i guess shit happens. I hope everything works for both events even though both will be a little impacted.

Glad to see this event is still happening.Thank you Amos for taking it over and thank you Ruben for all the work you have put in. Running an event is not easy, people will always be unhappy.

With the growth of the sport, there will be more and more events. It used to be that NCKA was the only place to post events, but there are now other groups online that use different platforms such as facebook.

I am sad to see how everyone can be so negative. There is a difference between being unhappy with something and taking it out on a NCKA member who has been nothing but a positive part of this group.

Yes, it's a bummer that there are two great events on the same day, but choose the one that you really can't miss.

If I remember correctly, Ruben's raffles supported people or other worthy groups in need. He has always been very generous.

Maybe this year the Simply raffle (if there is one) should support the Shelter Cove Fishing Preservation Inc.
SCFPI is a very worthy cause.

Think about it...

Boy howdy, a lot of armchair QB here.

Are the folks asking for a date change or simply complaining going to reprint material, communicate with sponsors, make sure other calendars are clear, put together volunteers, etc...

There is a lot in planning and coordination that goes into hosting an event, moaning about how you cant have everything you want and be in both places because someone is ruining your special fun thats got the exclusive paddle only vibe by having an overlapping date...  is this really what NCKA is about?




for my part
I'll do my best to make it to Simply and wish I could do Shelter Open, but really, how many times can I afford the time and $$ to drive to Shelter every year?  oah yeah, once...

Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps

If it was the intention from the beginning, it should have been stated at the start. Might have relieved some of the friction on this topic.

Whoa now... don't get too excited. All I meant was that I had just had the same idea.

Not my circus, not my monkeys.

Perhaps ...The date issue is more likely about timing it with the event in Cen.Cal.  if Simply is a qualifer IDK

Thing that bothers me most  is ; it's just my opinion maybe wrong  but damn it's just an opinion  not kicking the guy down .

I have been a board member of a local little league , chief umpire  and tourney director . Scheduling umps and tourneys is tough sometimes, I was even asked to be a board member for the NorCal Volleyball Assn. I turned it down cause I know how difficult scheduling tourneys can be age 14u to 18u

It is what it is but it's not personal

I'm gonna go ice my back.pfft.more than likely not fishing anything no matter where or when it is LOL

My post was just a friendly suggestion.  :smt006

Al

I think that it was a good suggestion, Al.

I also think that this isnít a zero sum game. There is opportunity for everyone to win here, since net participation in both events will be greater than participation in a single event. Doug thinks itís disingenuous to note that Shelter cove is a 4.5 hour drive from the Simply Fishing location. I donít think itís disingenuous to note it since it certainly impacts my participation in OS (I donít go because itís too far during a busy part of the year) and probably the participation of lots of people who live south of Humboldt county.

Perhaps instead of jumping Amosís shit, you could have worked with him to find a mutually beneficial solution. Heís a super nice guy if you give him the chance.
