Several people have asked about the date of the Spring Fling this year, but didn't want to be the one to start a thread. It is about time somebody did, so I will. Usually we do it on or near spring break. As a warning, either spring break weekend will be more expensive. Personally, I may be gone the April 27-28 weekend, about a 50/50 chance. I don't insist we work around my schedule.

To get this going, the poll will be for which weekend you prefer. Please only vote if you would likely would attend on your chosen weekend. Feel free to make comments like "Any weekend except xxx is fine."

Thank you.

The 360 Vegas podcast has two meetups each year, called 360 Vegas Vacation. The next one is 5/26-5/28. Check #360VV8 Itinerary, and see the dates for the next one.

I booked my flight and hotel back in September. I arrive on 5/26 just hours before the #360VV8 festivities begin.
Had the dates for the Spring Fling already been set for 5/25-26 before I made plans to attend #360VV8, I would have made it a long trip to do both.

No offense, but the WoV group isn't pro-active enough for these sort of things.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Iím pretty much 100% coming no matter what weekend it ends up being. Iím not going to vote for this reason, my schedule is wide open as long as I have notice to make plans.

The small company that I work for has its own helicopter, I will see if they will let you charter it. If not, maybe we can send one of the company jets to pick you up.

No offense taken. It is no big secret numbers have been dwindling. I think it worth discussing if we should keep doing it.

I prefer May to April, but I'd make anything work. My formal vote goes for May 18-19.

I've been at a few of these. Sadly, very unlikely I will make this one. Too many weekend trips already planned late April and throughout May. If it moves to early June (8 or 15) I cold probably attend.
