Well, it's probably time to start thinking about the annual Fall get-together in Swannanoa / Black Mountain, NC. Unless someone has the time to organize, this should probably be just a show-up-and-figure-it-out-at-the-time sort of thing. We do need to pick a date, though. Does the weekend of October 16  - 18 work for everyone?

Thanks,

Thanks,

I'd prefer the week before or after, if possible.  I can forsee a potential conflict already.  Although I don't want to be selfish, I missed both BURP and the Ron-Dee-Voo due to other committments, so if there's any chance we can get a consensus on another weekend, I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks,
Mark

Taking the weather into consideration, the weekend before might be a better choice.  It can turn really cold that time of the year, as we all know from years past.

I believe that second weekend in Oct. is the Hack'd rally in WV. We don't want to stomp on that one. Many of us go to both Rallies.

I checked the Hack'd site, and they give the dates Oct 2-4 for the WV rally.  So perhaps the second weekend, Oct 9-11, would be feasible?

Could we get a poll started?  Not sure how to do that, though.

Since Hack'd is the first weekend, the second weekend is good for me for the Fall Rally.

I've added a poll - I didn't use the 4th weekend because I think it would be too cold by then.  I have been to the top of Mt. Mitchell when it's really REALLY cold - and I don't recommend it.

Happy voting!

So far those who have a preference like October 9-11. Should we just call it now, or wait for more votes?

Thanks,

Jon

Poll has just been up two days. I'd give it another day. Not everyone hands around here every day.

What was the result for the rally?  From the forum index, I see the last reply was from Rich on 8/21, but when I open the topic, the last reply shown is from 8/7.

How about an update?  Thanks!

I think the poll automaticially goes to the top every few days to remind folks to look at it.

This thread has been open a month, and the best weekend for most folks seems to be October 9 - 11. Let's go with that.

Thanks,

Jon

Jon is right. Its time to fish or cut bait. If we wait much longer we won't get the reservations in.

I'll second the motion for the weekend of Oct. 9-11.

All in favor?
