Well as suggested by someone (I think it was JerryLogan) I have put together a plan for the first WOVCon. I have also put another poll in here to try and get more of a sense of numbers. As the Wizard could attend I thought his choice of venue would be appropriate.


Date: Wednesday June 15th 2011
Location: Main Street Station, Downtown, Las Vegas, NV.
Meeting Place: 777 Brew Pub.
Time: 2pm.


Let me know what you think.

Count me in. The Palace Station was the meeting place for the first WoV coffee, I might add.

Barring unforseen developments, I should have no problem attending.

I'm going in March already, and my budget doesn't allow for two Vegas trips so close to each other. Oh well... would have been interesting meeting you all, despite my recent arrival at this board!

Wizard - Fantastic. I look forward to meeting you again. And it being at the smae place as your first coffee lend a strange symmetry to it.

Nareed - Great. I hope everything goes ok, and am looking forward to meeting you as I have always enjoyed your posts.

ElectricDreams - Its a shame, but hopefully youll still get to meet the Wizard in March when you go. He normally makes a point of meeting anyone from this board whos interested in meeting him, and its well worth it.

And with 6 positive answers and a couple of maybe's, looks like it could all go quite well.

Touch Wood.

I voted that I would attend this morning. And since I am through Vegas a couple of times a week anyway, I could use a few days off and good conversation.

Count me in! I wouldn't miss it!

That is a strike against you, but I don't rule it out. Just because somebody smokes doesn't mean they are out of shape. When I did the triathlon last month a friend of a friend beat my time, and he is a smoker. I think a good litmus test would be if you could do 50 flights on a stair machine at a respectable pace.

Likewise.

BTW perhaps we should set up a WOVCon site or a blog to keep updates, further infomration, etc, with links to this site. In any case someone should post on this thread at least weekly to keep it visible.

I think that I will use this as a challenge. My goal will be to get in good enough shape to get to the top if you would care to join me. Hell, it's 7 months away, I may even use this as a reason to stop smoking!
