    I think it would be the party that never ends. We'd talk for days about horses... and days and days. LOL And I agree, the eventers should plan... though I know of a few crazy dressage riders too, believe it or not. I am one of them.

    What about a COTH cruise? Who would wind up overboard?

    Pushed or fell, Snowflake? That would be the real question!

    Calvin - which three male members would dare show up. I'll bet Mike Matson could handle you all.

    Ooh! Would Mike come in uniform? You know women can't resist a man in uniform. I'll admit, I'm not sure who all is male on here. I would hope our resident rocket scientist, RAyers would show, along with Riderboy (all the cute guys are eventers, you know!) I'll bet Denny would come. Hmm..who are the other boys? Frank is! All right ladies--out those guys!

    You guys would always be your user names to me, even in person.

    Oh, and we'd have a thread first where you guessed the ages and other details of the COTHers before the big party. It would be awesome.

    You: "Hey Bugs, what's up?"

    me: "Oh Hi MVP! It is good to see you!"

    Calvincrowe: "Hi Bugs and MVP! Hey listen! I heard there was popcorn and margaritas in the house... is there are train wreck already?"

    MVP and Bugs: "Naw, SLC just got whopped by Aunt Esther's purse."

    Two words: cognitive dissonance
    My head would be spinning as I match my imagined image of posters with their real life look/voice and attitudes.
    It probably would be a good thing, as it expands my world of what I see versus what a person is inside.

    Definitely need the draft horse, mule, and donkey crowd included. They'd be handy for pulling the drunks out of the ditches. Heck, even the Gypsy Vanners could come along, but they must bring the butterflies and rainbows.

    I'd so be hiding in a corner. Petting a cat. Or dog, or whatever to take my mind off that I'm in a room with too many people and my brain is going auuueeeeeeghhhh.

    Actually - I think you'd be nice & kind of fun to meet in person - regardless of any online differences of opinion we've had.

    I have this picture in my mind of 1000 - 1500 women all talking at the same time and 10 men huddled together in a corner saying, "Now whatever we do, don't get them riled up!"

    I'm loving the mental picture of this
    Imagining it at a hotel conference center (at least, at the beginning, before we're swayed to start drinking outside- they way a beer is MEANT to be enjoyed!), all the hotel employees would be like, "Huh?? What is COTH? Some sort of high school reunion?? But they're SO LOUD... And bossy.... And why are they all wearing spurs?!"

    I'd love to see it!
    And I'd love to sample everyone's cooking, too!!
    Agreed that it would never end, too. I visit some other types of online communities and lemme tell you.... ain't no one can keep a thread alive quite like nosy, opinionated horse women!

    I picture an audio alert system for whenever an argument or drama is brewing in some corner of the room. It would be a "choo choo" of a train whistle (followed by the stampeding hooves of curious cothers)!
    (A decidedly unhorsey) MrB knocks over a feed bucket at the tack shop and mutters, "Oh crap. I failed the stadium jumping phase."
    (he does listen!)
