    I think someone needs to know where the money went from a certain person that started a bogus study and be enlighten some here. I would only give or Donate my $ to CASSA, and never give to this other organization or support anything they do what so ever,only Cassa. Tune in and you will know more is all I have to say about this.

    Looking forward to the show. I am completely unaware of all of this division so maybe I can get informed. I don't know all the issues involved so maybe this will be an eye opener for me and others.

    I ran across the information for Vapefest in the last week or so. Its the first show that's been near enough, (7 hour drive or so?), so I made reservations. I have no clue what's going on with these two groups and not enough time to listen to a podcast to find out. Can someone fill me in? After reading a thread one another board, (unrelated to Vapefest - but the board is advertising the event), I already had reservations. Maybe it would be best to just stay home?

    I'll try to fill you in as quick as I can...

    There are two meetups during the weekend beginning on Friday March 30th - one is called Vapebash, the other is called Vapefest. Main and http://www.vapefest.com

    Vapefest has an entry fee to attend the event. Vapebash is free. Hotel rooms are also slightly less expensive at Vapebash.

    The reason Vapefest has an entry fee is because it is a fundraiser for the National Vapers Club, and a study they are trying to do called IVAQS.

    Many people support the NVC - and many others condemn it. My own two cents: I would not give a penny to NVC ever again. I will be attending Vapebash and making a contribution to CASAA as I feel that is a better way to support the fight to keep vaping legal.

    This is the point at which brevity is no longer an option. You would have to do some research (or listen to the podcast) and form an opinion from there. I can assure you that listening to the podcast would take less time than sorting through months of forum posts.

    What it comes down to is this: if you think supporting the NVC is good, go to Vapefest and give them money. If you think NVC is bad, don't go there and don't give them your money.

    If you don't care about any of this stuff, well, pick one or pick both. Vapebash is free, Vapefest is not, and they are close enough that you can easily go to both.

    The only option that I would say would be a bad idea no matter what is to not be in Chicago that weekend.

    Again, I'm trying to be brief, but more research is probably the best way for you to figure out if you want to donate to the NVC or not.

    Foggy, since IVAQS was mentioned above, I thought I'd give you the link to the page explaining the study: IVAQS Project

    In case anyone's wondering WHY I still have the SD as my sig, it's because I got my first ecig in January 2008 but still smoked for 10 months, until I got my first SD. I have other APVs, but also still love and use my SD (with a Bulli on top). I will be forever grateful to Trog for saving my life!

    Russ, I think that was a very diplomatic answer on your part.
