I'm reposting the 2nd Annual RRC Coaster Events Poll ballot for those of you
who may not have saved it or seen it the first time. I urge all of you to vote
and make this poll as big of a success as possible. Please take the time out of
your busy schedule to vote. Please note that I have extended the deadline to
Sunday, January 3rd. Time is running out! Thanks again.
Welcome to the 2nd Annual RRC Coaster Events Poll. Last year's poll was quite
a success and I expect this year's will be even better. I know many of you are
sick of season-end polls, but I hope you'll find this one a bit different from
the norm. Before I post the poll, let me just say that on behalf of this
newsgroup and enthusiasts world wide, we are truly grateful to each and every
park that holds special events for enthusiasts each and every year. Every event
this season drew rave reviews and we look forward to more of the same in the
future! This poll attempts to award to the best of the best and to give parks
that don't currently hold one or those who do, an idea of what enthusiasts
enjoy most at them.
Ballots must be received on or before January 3, 1999, via e-mail only.
Ballots posted to the newsgroup exclusively will *not* be counted. Also, in
order to participate in this poll, you must have attended at least *two* events
This year, the official list of events to be used for this poll is Todd Long's
Coaster Events Listing. Every event, and only the events, on that list are
valid for the poll, including for the first time, all RRC events. Todd's list
could be found on the RRC Website maintained by Chris Lucht at
