I thought since we were already talking about the next two years of meets we might as well have a thread dedicated to it. ;)

OK, here are my thoughts on meets. Tell me what you think and I hope I don't upset anyone when I put this out there.

Since 2013 was suggested as a way for our East coast friends to meet us (Max, Shelly & Tara) then I think we need to plan that meet around when they can come. Does that make sense? I know Tara can go anytime so she doesn't care. It sounds like June is better for Max and I'd love to get Shelly's input.

Sooo, with that said, I think 2012 needs to be where Emmy and Chris and Deb can get to more easily. (I think Tawnya and I are pretty centrally located). Soooo...what if we did 2012 in Tulsa, Oklahoma City or Dallas? Those are not too far (and geographically OKC is 1/2 way between Deb and Chris) from anyone.

So what do you think? Maybe Emmy could join us if we were closer to her in 2012 and then Max and Shelly could join us in 2013 at Disney?

I hope I didn't offend anyone by my suggestions. I am just trying to plan so everyone can attend at least one meet in the next couple years. I don't mean to exclude anyone from either meet!!!

On 2013, we will plan around when everyone picks.

OK, I guess we will decide when it's best for everyone then. I vote for June for 2013. Guess I need everyone to make a firm comitment to either June or November and we'll see which one comes out on top.

Deb- should I count you for November? I know Tawnyas vote is for November.

It's a shame we don't have a poll option here anymore. . .would be simple, huh?

I can do either time too but June will work better for us b/c the boys don't miss any school.

I'm afraid there won't be a majority but a tie. I'm glad there aren't the polls on here b/c anyone can vote and people not on this board could come and vote. Isn't there a poll option on FB? Maybe I can do one through there-where only we could see it and vote?

Kim and Deb, I think this is a splendid idea :-) And Kim, I don't think anyone should be offended. You are very clear about why you are interested in planning the two meets.

As there is no way for me to attend either meet, I am just excited for you all and will love to see all TRs :-)

I just love this board and the close relationships that have evolved :-)

Anyways, just my two cents worth.

Kim, I don't think anyone would be offended. What you said made total sense. I honestly doubt I'd be able to do any meet in 2013 because that is our Europe year. I can't imagine me being able to afford both. As far as 2012, I love the idea of going a bit more central because selfishly I'd love to come and hopefully get to meet Deb and Emmy and if some of the East Coasters make it that would be awesome too. But I could understand if it didn't work out that way.


I threw it out to Brian that if you guys did it again in June(???) that depending on money maybe we could rent a car to drive down to wherever we meet and then drive to Williamsburg and then drop off the car and fly home. I told him it would save money on airfare and doing two trips if we combined them into one. I'm gonna try to sell it!!! LOL.

I like that plan! I hope he goes for it. :)

I don't care where we meet. Nashville sounds fun as does Memphis and anyplace else we can all get together. ;)
