My great aunt died two months ago and I found out in a letter today. We had a meet up in 2013 and it is time again. I always thought I'd see my aunt again, but never did, so lets do this. Everyone is invited but Evenbob unless Evenbob agrees to show up, then he will be invited.

There will be free punch and pie.
Sorry, one cheeseburger per park resident.


Will you come? Ideas, suggestions?

Fwiw, there are 5 weekends in April. I voted for 4th week as the 22nd-23rd. If you meant the following weekend as the 4th, that might work too.

April 16 is Easter. That's also usually the last week of spring break, so people sometimes have child - centric plans up til then.

It's also far enough into spring those traveling might be able to avoid the type of snowstorm that disrupted the last one, including my decision to cancel driving up.

I'm not locked in to that weekend, but it looks the best to me.

Onm, we had a meetup in 2014 as well. Wow can't believe it has been 2 years.

I will be in Vegas from 6th through 14 then easter is the next weekend. If we do something in week 4 then I think we are safe from snow. Snow is generally gone after easter up here but there has been the occasional storm.

When was the 2013 meet up, I think March? We had a decent turn out with the crazy snow that hit the area. Last meetup was not hugely attended but that was right around the time of the sale and things were in turmoil. We still had decent amount and had a lot of fun.

Anyways, my vote is late April. Funny how times chang last 2 meetings I lobbied for Meadows and hated on the rivers. I haven't been to the meadows in 3 months maybe. Rivers always has $5 craps and BJ but the BJ is almost all CSM unless you go to $15.

If there is group gaming again like before then early afternoon is best at the Rivers. Saturday nights get crazy there and would be hard to get on table.

Oh you're right about April. I accidentally looked at March. Yeah, the snow in 2013, felt like it was really gambling on my life that day. I don't usually get scared by the weather, but the roads that day were bad on 79, unplowed and tons of traffic. I don't want to be bothered by any snow again. We also have to not conflict with any kind of Vegas meet, but really, nobody is picking Pittsburgh over Las Vegas. I would pick Pittsburgh just because $20 gas and tolls, no plane, no hotels.

I forgot all about 2014, because I didn't go. I'll vote for the 4th or 5th weekend. I like the 23rd, not the 22nd, and like the 29th and 30th.

Greetings!

I'm Locking this thread and starting a new one pursuant to a conversation with ONM in which we decided to open it up to a few other venues. However, we are also limiting the choices to one weekend so nothing gets confused. We're talking about over five months from now, so there is plenty of time to schedule for anyone who really wishes to attend.
