Just throwing this idea in.  If we could vote for all the dates that were most likely good for us and that way the best date could be chosen for the most number of people.  In other words if there was five good dates for me then I could mark all five and so on for everyone.

What Dan said is what I was thinking. I made this a "multiple choice" poll...meaning you can pick several dates. That will enable me to narrow it down. I picked all the Saturdays including the holiday weeks (which I would guess are reserved for family things for everyone) thinking that 3/4 of them would fall out for the next iteration. But the inability to come to a firm date is what I knew would be the hardest part. But if you mark the dates you might be able to attend that would get it going...if it's a viable happening.

Thanks Fred for the clarification. I should be able to do that.

Just got the summer volley-ball schedule which helps.

Now if I can get my oldest grand-daughter ready, she might have her drivers license by June which will greatly help...I think:unsure:

Wapakoneta OHIO, Rusty. Just a little West and North of you.  You can be there before lunch.:P

It would be beneficial to also state where the meeting will be.  That way I know if i can drive that far.

 

See above my response to Rusty. Probably about a 4-1/2-5 hour drive from Laporte area Michael. We probably can work out a ride share. I live south of Lafayette but may be meeting up with @Ron Dudelston in Hartford City depending on the final date.

I see no reason that spouses can't come.

Michael, here's the original post describing my intentions:

"

I've been kicking this around for a while. I'm a little nervous about asking since this may go south, but here goes. I'm willing  to host  a gathering/get together/whatever you want to call it if there's any interest. Some things that will make this hard to do:

The date....picking a date that fits anyone's/everyone's schedule is hard to do. It's impossible to find one day that's good for everyone. I'm retired, so any day/date will be good for me as long as it doesn't interfere with one of my wife's doctor visits (I'm the driver).

 

The content: I won't be able to provide any demo's or entertainment unless someone brings something. So this would mostly be a meet/greet/jawbone affair.

 

Food: I would be willing to provide lunch/drinks/snacks. Likely some kind of fried chicken or such.

 

Timing: because I'm also doing things for my wife (like cooking dinner) we would likely have to limit it to about 5:00 or so in the afternoon ending time, start anytime.

 

The location: my place (search Wapakoneta OHIO) which as far as I know is only close to Newman. Most others will have a couple of hours drive, or couple of hours flight on John's company jet.

 

Info that would be of use:

How many would be probable for such an event?

Any suggestions for the agenda?

Any interest in a swap and sell of stuff?

What did I forget?

 

I've participated in 2 of these type events (different forum) before, one was exceptionally well done...though the attendance was less than the host expected, I think there were probably 12 or so guys so up. The second was disaster....enough said. I'd rather not do one than host a disaster.
