Also, if a zone is popular, it may need to be split up. Sometimes you'll realize you thought you had one topic, but you're getting two or three parallel conversations going on subtopics.Zone 1 Prepaids - what to look for (ACH in/out) velocity limits etc
Zone 2 Fuel Dumping/Hidden Cities
Zone 3 Reselling
Zone 4 Gift Cards
ETC... you then pick your zone, and if you are bored, wander to the next Zone. If a Zone is popular we can run it through the next round, and perhaps have a moderator change, kinda like having a yeast starter for the bread or beer makers out there.
I like this idea and hope to be able to attend. I also like the idea of a host hotel for rooms, but not for discussion space. It would be great if we could do a small city, slightly off season and downtown, where we could walk safely from hotel to venue. Minneapolis/St Paul (not a small city) sounds good too if it's going to be April - October.
Powerpoints or chalkboards or easels with big pieces of paper are good for putting points up where everyone can see them. If there's going to be flowing back and forth, that'll help a new joiner get up to speed.
Very excited about this next DO. Hoping third time's a charm and I get to this one.
