[aprssig] Hamfest and Local info

For a regularly occurring event, such as a club meeting, would you need to put up and take down the object each month?  Or, would it be ok to create an object at the meeting site and have a status text with the time/date formula (2nd Friday of the month) and location (library at 350 Nevada St.) and just leave it there?

John, 
 
The location of the event and the DIGI dont have to coexist. 
 
You only need to create an object with the information and coordinates of the event. 
 
This can be done as a standalone radio & TNC or go to the remote location and add the information a week ahead and take it off the week after.

How would you solve the problem where the club aprs station was located several miles away from the field day site? The transmitted lat - lon would not lead folks to the correct site.

YOu can't tell me that there aren't at least 2 or more APRS users in each club. I agree with Bob. It should be up to them to put forth the effort to get that information up on the air and announce up coming events. 
 
My 2 cents
