Well, there is obviously enough interest, so here goes.

I am going to throw up 2 weekends. The first weekend after labor day, and the second weekend after labor day. Along with an Either would be fine category.

Nearest I can tell, I will be able to do either.

I would imagine that I can add a day in either direction also. Seeing as how airfare is sometimes cheaper on Thursday or Monday. Just plan on running around getting things ready for everyone else.

You can always pick on Brian, and maybe me........I'll have to see which weekend I'm off at work before I answer the poll. More than likely, I won't make it. I do think JT and KC are planning on being there, if possible.

It is official for Sept 17-19th right? I can get tickets fom Southwest for $176.80.

parrothead
07-02-2004, 01:01 PM
That is indeed th date. If you get the tickets post arrival and departure at midway airport so others can try to hit the same arrivals and departure. And by the way, that is Midway airport no O'hare. That is even a longer trip. I live an hour from Midway and want to cut the airport runs to a minimum.

Bigmista
07-02-2004, 01:06 PM
Gotcha. Is there a particular time that works for you?

parrothead
07-02-2004, 01:14 PM
Doesn't much matter. So far no one else has comfirmed purchase, so let's go with what ever you end up with. Maybe mid afternoon arrival and mid afternoon departure.

Mark
07-02-2004, 01:26 PM
Any MOFO's planning on driving and interested in discussing sharing expenses?

jt
07-02-2004, 01:38 PM
I talked with KC about carpooling from the Columbia area. I'm just north of there although we'd probably head up north and take 36 across to Illinois. Or something like that to cut diagonally up to Gregs. Which we will need directions for at some point.

Kinda still depends on family schedules, etc, although I'm planning on going!

Best I can do is $262, but that is flying out of San Antonio. No SWA flights out of Dallas. Flying out of and to Austin jumps up to $384.

Greg,
Just a thought (for now).
Ya got room to park an RV?
Need level area (not a soft lawm) for 33'--off street.
Really need to stay on hard surface at 22K lbs--I can (and have) squished some killer drainage ditches into lawns.
Or, is there an RV park within crawling distance?
Just scheming for now :wink:

I have a bunch of driveway space and if we haven't had much rain at the time, my lot accross the street will be happy to have some company. Doesn't matter about tearing it up anyway.

Mark, I am pretty sure that Shock and Davewey are making it up. I talked to Stlouque yesterday and he is planning on it also. A few others from the area are planning on it also, so there should not be a problem with you finding someone to hook up with.

Problem is, I got a AR, OK, TX trip in the early part of the month. Gotta see where the pennys are after that. Hell, maybe I can just stop here for a day, unload the family s**t, pack the RV with beer and "fixin's", and head North!

Yeah, I'm obligated for a church 50th anniversary celebration! I really wish I could come up -- heck tickets are like $100 right now from St. Pete/Clearwater on ATA to Midway.

Oh well, maybe next year!!

Some of us peons can only afford one Bash a year, anyway. However, a road trip would have been GREAT!

Being that I'll be in the middle of a move, my attending is up-in-air. Shortly after moving to CA, I'll be having to spend quite a bit of time in MD/DC, so I'm not sure exactly where I'll be around that weekend to make sure I book a flight from the correct airport, let alone correct days/times :oops:
Once I know for sure I'll look into it. Might be a last minute booking.

CRAP CRAP CRAPPITY MCFARKLE CRAP!!!!

One of my best friends (a Minister) just told me yesterday that he and his fiance have set a date to get married. SEPTEMBER 18th!!!!

I asked him if he was sure that was the right day. He said yes.

I asked him if he had considered other weekends. He said this was the day they chose.

I asked him if he talked to God about it. He said yes.

I asked him if he was sure he wanted to get married. He said yes.

*sigh*


I have to go. I promised I would be there for him. Besides, how often do you see a 40 year-old virgin get married? He has been celibate all of his life. Amazing to me.

Suffice to say I can't come to the bash. I'm happy for my friend, I just don't know if he's gonna stay on my best friend's list after making me miss the bash after I have been looking forward to it.

Even MrsMista was upset cause she knew how much I wanted to go. But she did give me the go ahead to go to Vegas with the West Coast Brethren team for the BBQ cookoff. I am so lucky to have her!!
