There goes Camille...our favorite jetsetter!
Dave, I first wanted to say
for stepping up to the plate!
It's wonderful to see that you guys (and gals) now have enough confidence to start a project on your own
I'm always available if you have any questions but I'm sure you'll do a great job
As for your question...
when we had so much trouble finding a vendor with enough quantity here in the U.S. it was very frustrating to say the least
I was discussing it with a few of my friends and somewhere along the way a few ideas surfaced. While it might sound cruel, there needs to be a limit to the number of people who can participate (as Camille suggested). There are still ways for the extras to be involved:
More than one project can be done at one time...use the idea of the mystery project we did (without the mystery!
Do a Cool, an Intermediate and a Warm Project, each with their own limit of 25...with the same basic rules of our previous projects
Participants would be added in a first come-first serve manner. It would be rather easy to track because the date and time of their join-request would be cataloged in the OB thread for each.
Do the project the way it's always been done (the process works
) with a limited number of people. Once there are more than that number of folks interested, start a second group with a second plant.
I'm looking forward to seeing what ideas the rest of you come up with and again...
