I'm always a maybe for a Spring Fling. Depends on work schedule.
I wI'll ve in Vegas from April 8th through 15th but we are flying in at 7pm on that Saturday so it would probably be tough to make to a meet up even if it were on that Saturday. Originally we were going to fly in on Friday but flight prices sky rocketed on me.
Well, it seems that MrV's thread drew some moderate interest for two days and then dropped off the radar. Perhaps that was because no one suggested a specific date for discussions. I noted that a WoVCon East III is being planned for the Pittsburgh area (for April 29 and/or 30) and that there could possibly be someone interested joining meet ups in both the East and Vegas. Mike suggested that we avoid Spring Break week, which he thinks will be April 9-16 (with Easter falling on 4/17/17.) GWAE mentioned his plans to be in Las Vegas (almost exactly the days that Mike had already advised against, but perhaps because Spring Break is the convenient time for GWAE) but said his schedule didn't look good for attending a meet even if it were held on the Saturday he will be there.
While we have these "let's not do it then" suggestions, no one has put up a positive suggestion for others to consider. I'll try stirring the pot by making a specific suggestion: Suppose we consider a WoV Spring Fling 2017 on the weekend surrounding Saturday 4/22/17, and extending from as early (Thur/Fri) to as late (Mon/Tue) as attendees might like. If there are WoV fanatics who would like to meet one group in Vegas and another in Pittsburgh, they can probably schedule direct flights between the cities and attend gatherings on consecutive weekends. (Nope, that won't be me.)
So my real, baseline suggestion is that we figure out what weekend is likely to be most attractive for the largest number of people who would like to gather in Las Vegas, then after there is some degree of consensus on that we can focus on the specific activities and the locations. Who would be up for making it that weekend around 4/22?
