Sorry not to weigh in sooner. I'd love another meetup, and Old Town would be great for me since I live in Alexandria. Of the September dates suggested, September 17 is best, but I might be able to make September 24, if I juggled some things around. Looking forward to it!

Ok, I didn't want it to be this late, but at least it wouldn't be near any holidays, how does Oct 1 sound?

I usually work Sundays but have Saturdays off, so for me it would have to be a Saturday. Any of those mentioned so far, September or October 1 seem fine.

I would like to attend again, but since I have moved a little further away, it will be more difficult. So I won't vote on dates, but let me know when it is set and I will try to make it work! :)

Ok, so I have had things come up in Sep, so here are the options:

Oct 8
Oct 15

The first date that gets 3 OKs (other than from me) will be the date. Just post here.

Thanks. :bouncy:

It's hard for me to predict how the fall semester is going to go - in terms of exams and assignments and whatnot. So I think that I will try to make whatever day gets picked, but not actually vote on dates myself.

Both dates are good for us. Can't wait to see everyone again - or for the first time!

Ok, so the tally stands at:
1 for Oct 8
0 for Oct 15

If a couple more interested parties could weigh in, that would be great. Thanks everyone for your input so far.

Hello!

I'm not going to vote since I can't say with 100% certainty that I will be able to attend. I might be out of town for Columbus Day weekend in October, but I'm not sure yet.

However, I will watch this thread for whatever date is chosen and hope that I can make it.

As always, thanks for your efforts ifthelensfits!

Thanks Medusa242, I am trying. :)

Ok, since so many people are respectfully declining to vote (which is ok) I am going to vote for Oct 8. That puts us at 2 for Oct 8 and 0 for Oct 15. You have until the end of the week to cast your vote. On Sunday, whichever date is in the lead (or the first to 3) will be the chosen date. Let's get this ball rolling guys. Just over a month to go and we still don't have a date.

As always, let me know if you have any questions. :spin:

Thanks for the offer, but I already have it planned. I live in Alexandria.

If anybody else is only available 1 Oct (or it's just much better), please let me know by the end of the week.

The week is over and I'll also have to tell my boss soon, so I can make sure I get that Saturday off.
