We need to discuss how much commercialism we can allow on this chatboard. In our sport, it seems the shops play a huge part in keep the excitement going. For instance, Mac and Rob's trip to Mexico via Solo Sports is turning into an annual trip for the club, and Andy Mckinney and Charlie at Ride Hatteras both support our groups with discounts. I also have links on the www.ibscc.org site to shops; however, sooner or later, we'll have to draw a line between support and just plain promotion. Anybody have any ideas where that line should be?

Andy, we're grateful for your contributions. Where it gets screwy is when we start getting requests from people we've never heard of before asking us to promote something. It's a tough call. Thanks for participating in the discussion.

Hi Guys-  First, thanks very much for inviting me to be a part of the group!  I really enjoy everyone's company when y'all make the trek out to the beach, and consider many of you to be good friends.  Regarding spamming your forums with promo info, please don't hesitate to call me out if I ever cross the line, whatever it may be.  I understand that this is a space for stoke, and I'm totally down for keeping it that way!


From my point of view, I would think that you would be interested in information concerning major events like the Hatteras Wave Jam, Epic Forecasts, and maybe some announcements of the occasional sale or something.  If that's overboard, just let me know- no worries!
