    MrsC got a reaction from T_Bison in Valour FC Season Thread 2020 2.0   
    I thought I'd get us started again.
    We are having a 'Fauxpening Day' virtual tailgate (via Zoom) on Saturday, during the time that we would have gathered pre-game for Valour's season opener.
    If you want to join, I'll email the link and login info if you RSVP here (Zoom limits the number of people that can login, so that's why we need an RSVP rather than just posting the login info)
    Rob Gale and  Jose Galan will be joining us.  We are sending some baby gifts for Jose, and he'll open them during the call.
    We are also hosting a Quarantine TIFO contest, and the Kings Head is donating a $25 gift card and a scarf as the prize.  Rob Gale, Jose Galan & Chris Graves (from the Kings Head) will be judging.
    You can find more details about the contest here: https://www.redriverrising.ca/2020/04/28/kings-head-quarntine-tifo-contest/
    We'll also sing a few songs, as we would have on the march to the match. 
    We are encouraging people to order take out from the places they would have gathered at pre-game (particularly the Kings Head, Nicolinos & Stone Angel).  Since the tailgate starts early on saturday, you may need to plan ahead and order tomorrow (Friday).
    The Kings Head has put together an RRR Tailgate package (6 cans of beer, a frozen pizza and skittles for $35) - https://www.kingshead.ca/new-products-1/valour-fc-red-river-rising-tailgate-package

    Dwayne we are friends, but I couldn't disagree with you more on these posts. The Voyageurs has evolved significantly since you were running the organization.  I love having the forum for people to communicate, but it no longer holds the importance it once did.  There are many places we meet and connect on social media, as well as in person.  If the message board is all the Voyageurs is to you, then you are missing out on a lot.
    I am a proud Voyageur, and I chat with fellow Voyageurs almost daily. Sometimes in the forum, but usually in other places.  That's a choice I make, not because I have issues with how the forum is run, but because if feels more convenient to connect on other social platforms.  Message boards aren’t dead, but they are not what they used to be, when there are many other ways to connect.
    I’ve been part of so many Voyageurs activities in the last couple of years, from viewing parties to live games (in several cities).  I’m a bit dismayed that you could say the Voyageurs are dead.  It is very much alive.
    For those that think Jamie is running the show alone, this is misguided.  It’s true that Jamie has put in an unbelievable amount of personal time and money into this, but he is not acting alone.  There are Voyageurs all across the country helping Jamie promote the Voyageurs regionally, offering advice, and opinions.  Lending a hand on game day, and leading up to game day.  And there are several very active Voyageurs who have worked closely with Jamie with the incorporation.
    And saying Jamie is the only Voyageur because he is the only name on the not-for profit, makes no sense.  There are only 4 of us on the RRR not for profit, but we aren’t the only members.
    I agree that Doug shouldn’t have been banned.  But the tizzy this has devolved into is a bit incomprehensible.  If you want to call for more transparency fine. That is a fair comment.  But to suggest the Voyageurs are nothing, is quite frankly offensive to all of the active members of the Voyageurs, putting in a lot of hard work, time and passion.

    I have to echo that. 
    To be clear, this isn't meant to devalue the importance of the various social media platforms out there, their importance to us cannot be over-stated.  I just think we have to recognize that the Vs interact over a greater variety of theatres than we once did and have been doing so for years now really.  People will gravity to the where they feel most comfortable with and that's fine, more than fine, just so long as we're still finding connection.
    I also think it doesn't hurt to reconginze that it's a very small group of individual liasons that do too much, and we need for them to continue doing more than their share in bringing our fractured community together for our common purpose.  It is the thankless dedication of the volunteers who have kept this experiment going longer than I expect anyone could have imagined. 
    Allez les Rouges.

    No, the Voyageurs are most certainly not dead. Just because the forum isn’t the lifeblood of the group like it was 10 years ago, doesn’t mean that the spirit of the group and what it’s trying to accomplish are gone. Message boards are a dead medium, so it’s only natural that the V’s don’t lean as heavily on one as they did in the group’s formative years. 
    With all due respect (and I mean that sincerely, because I have a ton of respect for the leadership role you took on back when the V’s were in their formative years, with the Cup etc.), your take on this is wrong. 
    I agree that we need to know what happened to Lofty’s account, as it was an unprecedented action, but I don’t think it means as much as you seem to be implying in here.
    The Voyageurs are bigger, stronger and more diverse than ever. That’s not going to change because a single message board account was deleted.

    For Nicolinos, we will be in private room for sure, so start there.  Nick is also going to have the game on in the lounge as well, though it will likely be busy over dinner.
