I may be going to Aruba in October or November. We could hold it there as they have many casinos.


Me asap! Right now Aruba ain't letting anyone in. But great idea!

Let's keep this thread narrow to your own plans for coordination please.

10-10-2020 has the most votes by far, it avoids EDC, and it's easy to remember a date like that. I say we make Oct 10 official. Can I get anyone to second the motion?

I'm in. My annual meeting ends Wednesday the 7th, assuming it is still a go. I'll come directly to Vegas that day and stay until Sunday. If by some unbelievable coincidence that is the weekend the Bills are playing in Las Vegas, that would be even better. (1/17 chance!)

I'd say that my wife and I are in, provided a number of assumptions hold:
(1) The Fall Fling is genuinely held on the announced dates.
(2) The Las Vegas establishments (casinos, hotels, restaurants, etc.) are back open for business, and we can get a room as we had reserved for a Spring gathering.
(3) Transportation services (airlines, rental cars) are operating and are available.
(4) Neither the pandemic nor any other such event has completely destroyed us -- if we are still around, I expect I will be in the mood.


BTW (although this probably isn't the appropriate thread for this), a friend from 60 or 65 years ago sent me a link to a YouTube video that had been shared with him. My wife and I enjoyed watching it several times, and you might, too. It is a family singing about how they are coping with their self-quarantine situation during the pandemic, and they use a variation of a song from Les Misérables. I am quite impressed with both the humor and the musical talent of this family.

This has the added advantage that the following Monday is Columbus Day, so some people may have a three-day weekend.

One thing you have not taken into account: the possibility of a Raiders home game that weekend. The NFL schedule is usually announced near the end of April.
Then again, that assumes the new stadium will be ready by then, or that, if it is not, they will play this season in Sam Boyd Stadium, which I doubt. San Diego has a football stadium no one seems to be using at the moment...

I rode past the stadium on my bike ride and can say that there are construction workers all over it like ants. I think the stadium will be ready. In my opinion, we should make Oct 10 official and take our chances with what will happen in the NFL that day.

I'm hoping there is a game. I'll be going if there is one.
