There has been talk of a get together among members of MileHighReport, something I have been hoping to do for awhile. Sometimes it is better to find out from the community if something is worthy, and the response to Denver Diehard's Fanpost about such an even has proven that many of you would be interested. If this is going to happen, however, it has to be done right, and committed to 100%. Anything else would be unworthy of the site, and most importantly, the community.
A couple things -
1. What do you guys think of the name? I am very "in" to branding, and MHR has become the brand of the website and community. I also try to avoid any slogan that could be trademarked. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Having something like MHR Bronco-Con also makes it easier for T-Shirt creation.
2. There is a poll attached to this FanPost. Please respond, even if you are just a lurker. We need to get a firm idea of the actual interest. This would be a huge undertaking, and for those that are interested and would actually make the trip the cost and personal commitment are deserving of knowing what they are getting in to. That said, many of you have been looking for a good reason to head to Denver anyway, so why not during Training Camp 2009?
3. The date is perfect. Training Camp is a great time to be in Denver, minus trying to get to an actual game. Several of the other SBNation sites have "Night's Out" at games but that is alot easier during a 82 or 162 game season. Perhaps if this was something that interested you guys we could make it during Pre-Season. If not, training camp is solid, and let's face it, we would definitely have the best Training Camp coverage in the NFL!
4.. Next Steps. I will leave this Poll active for about a week just to gauge everyone's interest. Please be as truthful as possible. I know things come up, but if you really think this is something you would attend I would like to know. That way we can get a firm grasp on how involved this thing needs to be. I don't want a bunch of "Maybe's" so I am leaving that out of the poll. Try and make your best guess, and even if you are a lurker, we'd love to have you!!!
More to come, and it is my hope that this is the beginning of an awesome event! Please "REC" this post so it stays at the top. I want asa many of you to see it as possible!!!
