+1000, even though I cannot make it due to not having enough money...


Due to Zen's feelings on this matter my nomination is changed to Bong and Drumsplus. Bong for the inspiration and passion that he brought to DRT '08 and Drumplus for the time and effort that he put in, behind the scenes, to make the event a HUGE success.


Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! Agreed!


I placed my vote in the DRT thread a month or two ago (I know I did it in the wrong place). Hands Down, Bong, Drumplus, and Zen (even if he doesn't accept) for all their work on DRT. I wasn't even there and for some reason this past weekend was exciting (I could feel the vibe from Rochester).

Dude, there was so much VIBE this weekend, they are still sweeping it off the streets! 8)
The only thing that could come close to matching the emotion, selflessness, love, fun, brotherhood, etc. that was felt this weekend would be next years event. The bar is set, and we WILL raise it, mark my words! :wink:

Guys I am greatly honored by your nomination, but I agree with Zen, I couldn't accept the nomination and believe Bong is the rightful owner of the title of "Member of the Year".

I would vote for mike but after he conceded the title, I have to give my vote to bong. it was bong's idea in the first place (as everyone should remember) and without him drt would never have been born.

Sure we vote in December and sure Bill Ray is a huge contributor to the community but do we really think ANYONE is going to do anything to top DML this year? Get my vote in early and come December 1st I'll make my other votes in but this one is just a no brainer to me. :mrgreen:
