Maybe we need to determine what the flag represents to us and how to use it best.
I truly respect and understand that just like lyrics, the flag may mean different things to different people.
My thoughts - The flag was designed to designate a meeting point for fellow Furthur Forum Family members, and to be passed around to be used as such. Early discussion revolved around a table in the show, or other common meeting area. I have some reservation about taking it to shows where only 1-3 people from the forum are attending because what purpose would it serve? Are we trying to "recruit" more members to the forum? If we take it into the shows without a table, everybody doesn't always have the same seat location, so where does it get displayed?. Do we run a risk of having it confiscated in the show because we used their logo? Some of these questions only exist because of the type of shows we have coming up. Tiny west coast shows, then a string of shows on the east, with no real shakedown scene (except CT) and reserved seats at the venues. If we were about to embark on a summer or fall tour like last year, it would be a snap. Is the flag to be shared by all and for all, regardless of attendance by forum members at any given show? Or should it be reserved for it's original purpose, as a meeting point at shows with a large forum turnout? And yes I realize that "large" is a relative term.
These are just my thoughts, what are yours?
