Q Funding has filed a letter with the SEC, sent to the Cedar Fair board of directors, announcing its intent to nominate two new board members prior to the June meeting.
Read the filing as posted to the Securities and Exchange Commission Web site.
I have something else in mind, but I don't think I will post it on the net. Someone may see it and see how amazing the idea is, and steal it. ;)
Smith, if you decide to run with it, I have some good ideas. We could work out a deal if you want. lol
I considered not posting it for that very reason, but then came to the conclusion that I'm probably not the person to try and turn it into a business venture. Damn it, Jim! I'm a surgeon, not an entrepeneur! ;)
If you seriously want to explore doing something with it, let me know. Guess it doesn't hurt to talk about it. :)

Rather than drag a locker around with you, why not have a system where there's a bank of lockers near all major attractions or areas and you pay to use the entire system of lockers for a day as opposed to a single locker location.
Beats pulling a wagon-locker around and locking it up all day and you still get to move about the park with your crap without having to keep going back to one locker location.
Just my (free for the world to see - and steal, I suppose) thoughts. ;)
I like that idea - in fact they could hook it into the Q bot to allow you to pay to "jump the line" at the locker bank. <end sarcasm> ;-)
How about designing lockers to be double sided so that instead of putting them at the attraction entrance, they can be located closer to the boarding platform. That way, when you are waiting in line for an hour, you can take all your crap with you. When you approach the ride, you step out of line, put your crap in a locker, step back into line, then ride.
After your ride is over, you go through the ride exit, return to the back side of the same locker, and retrieve your stuff. That way your stuff only sits in the locker for five or ten minutes, the attraction needs a much smaller number of lockers, and people have with them all the stuff they brought along to entertain themselves while waiting in line. Even the leaving and re-merging with the line is something that has been handled before, with in-queue food and drink concessions.

To answer Hawkeye's question- there are plenty of flats that can be enjoyed by all, like the Whip, Tilt-a-whirl, Teacups (Cuddle-ups), Train Rides, Skyrides, Ferris Wheels, Dodgems, Scramblers, Balloon Ride, Flying Bobs, Himalaya. Maybe not every family enjoys these, but I've seen plenty of multi-generation families riding these together at different parks.
I am NOT trying to be obnoxious but, except for the teacups, CP has all of these.
And, yet, people are claiming there are not enough "family rides." Again, you could add some water rides (Thunder canyon should be a great "family ride"), a dark ride and a "family" coaster (like Woodstock Express), but that's about it for "family rides."
