Has there ever been a Spring Fling on the East Coast?



We did a couple in Pittsburgh area. Talked about doing one in AC but it never materialized. Last one we had was going to have a nice gathering but it decided to snow 6 inches or something so most cancelled. Still had a small get together.

We don't believe in such foolishness.



AFATSFG, I'm good for whenever. Obviously if I gotta travel for work then I wouldn't be able to make it.



Thought you were calling me a fat guy then I realized what it said. Would make it fun to only write like that.

There was a "get together" in Niagara Falls as well. Larger group also met up in Cherokee North Carolina for the eclipse.

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


Why not put it off 'till the Nov 9th weekend this year.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Itís obvious what kinda spark these meetups need.


Actually, there is a bonus this year: if I show up (and I plan to), Wiz promised to buy a round for the group to pay off the 134,459 or so beers he owes me.

Any weekend is fine by me, although I prefer it not be April 6-7 as I currently have a doctor's appointment scheduled for the morning of April 8. Besides, I expect Vegas to be more packed than usual as that's Final Four weekend.

Eh? You'd certainly know better than me.

Hint:
In your special case DJ, the Nov 2nd weekend would technically be more appropriate.

I'm down, so long as we don't have something mandatory going on that weekend. I'm open to hopefully anytime, but the later the better (so like May).

Yeah as PG said, we had like 20 ppl last time, so I thought it was a pretty fair turnout.

I'm certainly interested, but finances for traveling may be a bit tight as I've got two vacations scheduled over the next few months already. I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure though as it would be an honor to meet some of the sources of so much wisdom here!
