I was just listening to the podcast of the 10-08 Broadcast of MHR Radio. Toward the end of the show, the Guru mentioned in passing about an MHR Conference. My immediate thought was "Why not?"
The obvious place would be in Denver, and I would say during the first or second week of Training Camp in August 2009.
Here's some ideas:
It would be a three day event that would cover Fri-Sunday. It would need to be on a weekend that we could visit camp as a group when they have a practice on Saturday. We could make a deal with a Southeast Hotel near Dove Valley for a discount rate for out of towners and use of a Conference Room on Saturday night.
Friday Evening: Meet and greet at a local Restaurant with a Brewery or pub attached. (War Stories / Fellowship and a good time)
Sat Morning : Meet for breakfast and on to Dove Valley for practice. Usually Saturday's have only one practice (morning)
Sat Afternoon: Group Tour of Invesco Field for MHR
Sat Evening: Dinner at the Hotel Convention room / Guest of Honor (former Broncos players) Show Film highlights of old Broncos games / Historic / Crackerbarrel at the bar. Presentations such as MHR University
Sunday late morning / mid day BBQ & ??
This is a very possible can do. Depending on the kind of support / attendance, the room at the Hotel could be over budget if not enough people came. I which case, a local establishment with a smaller meeting room could be arranged where an overhead video could still be shown. These are just a few ideas and an event that I believe we should make happen.
I've had some experience coordinating things like this and would volunteer to head up a committe in Denver to make it happen. Let me know your thoughts
The Sports Guru will be heading this up with what looks like a committee in Denver to handle Logistics. Stay Posted. Guru will be addressing this soon.
