    Each of these individual events are independent of the founder, although each of us would hope that Jason would make thier event,I believe most will still go on. I can tell you that the NJ is still going to take place....Jason did him best to make this successful, I am sure he learned a bit from the experience, but WFTW has been and can continue to be a successful event and I also do not see why it could not be an annual event...

    Thank You Jason.......at least you gave it a whirl.......................

    not entirely true. Jason did plan and finance some of the events I talked to him about this a few nights at the campground. So I can see where he took a hard financial hit.

    Thumbs up Wftw

    Rescueyj,
    I did not say or mean to say Jason did not plan ,fund, and finance some of the events and I know his intentions were to be at each and every event.But as you say with the shitty economy,rising gas prices and corporate america not stepping up as he thought, well crap happens...

    I just got off the phone with Jason and he would still love to complete his "baby"..... But he needs to get caught up on things,pay some bills etc. get a job etc.

    Tonight he will send me numbers I asked for, which are what does it take to continue to the end.Once I get that I will diseminate to various bulliten boards etc. as I see folks are starting to send $$$ .. As for the web site it looks like that should be good till after the last event in sept.or oct. I will confirm later...

    Meantime I need to make some calls to friends in Las Vegas and see if there is any work for Jason temporarily.
    I will check in later....

    It looks like the VA event will still be taking place as well.
