Post Mel IX Dates
So. Kids are asking on the national boards for dates, and we should probably get on this. Are we going to just go ahead and keep using Ingawanis?

Spring War is April 15-18th
Beltaine is April 29-May 2nd
Geddon is so June 23-27th

UNI and ISU finals are May 3rd - 7th, and commencement is on the 8th, so we probably don't want to do it that weekend.

This leaves May 13-16th, 20-23rd and 27-30th. The last option there is Memorial Day weekend.

My vote is for either the 13th-16th or 20-23rd (This is Western Wars, btw, though it's unlikely that our attendance pools will overlap much).

I can't say what dates will work best for me at the moment because I have to figure out which field camp I'm going to before I know what weekends I have free... May 13-16th if my current plans work out... I'll let you know for sure when I have more information.

So we actually need to get this nailed down now, I also want to know who would be able to get to the scout office to get the sites reserved. I'm at school or work almost everyday so I don't really have time to get this done (at least not in as timely a manner as it needs to get done).

I can't use any vacation until May 15th, so my vote is for the 20-23rd. ;)

Whatever works the best for everyone... but if it isn't the 13th-16th then there is no way that I can make it. :(

20th-23rd puts us farthest from both belatin and geddon. I think it might be the best time for numbers. That said I know shi'nok wont be able to make it then, and I want more input.

Well, just about every college will be out before either date, so we don't really have to deal with any issues in that regard. As for being the furthest in time from any other events, I have to wonder how much that really is going to change the potential attendance. The people that have the money to make the trip will have it no matter the day, and those that don't, won't. If I'm missing anything in terms of why the 20-23 would work better, please enlighten me (cause I just like to know the random stuff :D ).

It also might help in terms of people who just recently finished their semester still being around (or being willing to hang around town for a week and a half) instead of 2 weeks+ away and they've all gone home. /shrugs.

Peace be with you,

T.

I was hoping to draw more of the same crowd that will go to beltain. Some people wont make both if they are to close, but if they are even an extra week apart they might be more likely to come.

20th-23rd: Most of us will only be able to see Derian at events. It makes me a sad panda that Shi'nok wouldn't be able to come, but at least she lives here... and I'll make her a cake :D

We talked about the 27th-30th as well. People seemed to think that this would be better than the 20-23. if there are no objections and the park is open for us that weekend I think we will go for it.

Edit:

I just saw that the 27-30th would be memorial day weekend. looks like 20-23 will be the best we can do.

it will be 20-23. The paperwork will be in this week, it doesn't look like there are any other things going on that weekend.
