To start this off with a bang, I'd like date suggestions or restrictions for the 2019 event.

I'm thinking sometime in the first two weeks of October, but I am VERY flexible. I would rather get everyone there again, and get more folks who were restricted this year.

Short of making it a poll, or maybe I should, the dates I am thinking are: Oct. 2 - 6, 9 - 13, and 16 - 20.

All other dates are available, too. The sooner we pick a date, the sooner I can lock down The Crows Nest and The Riverfront....

Please be open about pros and cons...all you wallflowers!

I made the poll so that you can pick multiple options AND so your vote will be public by name so that I can make accomodations.

Although we discussed this Saturday night and I see how these dates may appeal to some I like the heat (sorry Ed).
I have but one vote and expect to be in the minority. Regardless I look forward to meeting again at any time.

I voted!
Thanks for setting this up immediately Chuck.
My only restriction is the Columbus day weekend October 9-13, I will be in NYC.

I would really love to join, but it is more than a bit far, and there is no road to come by bike from Europe… I won't vote for any date, but will keep track of what you do, and if by chance I can hijack a work travel to North America in the same period, I'll get into :)

Any of those dates are fine for me as of now. I can't know this far in advance what my production schedule for next year will be, but the sooner this is 100% decided, the sooner I can mark my work calendar to block out the time.

I personally like Sept. If it is going to be in Oct. then the first week would be best.
I am in regardless, but the temps and traffic this year were great, a bit warm but nice. Cooler temps are nice, but I did like slipping on the rocks in the river. :wink2:

I voted other because I was thinking maybe later in Oct.

Possibly weekend of the 25th. My b-day is the 29th :grin2: and celebrating it with the MV family would be a blast!! (except those damn sprockets) >:)

I'm fine with any date, but like Al, the sooner I get a firm date, the better.

If anyone wants to combine a NYC trip I'd be more than happy to help coordinate, and perhaps I'd even be able to offer sleeping space in my small abode. My 1.5 hour round trip flight was only $126.

Chuck & Cindy,
Thank you for taking on this task in 2019! For Mary & me, the October 16-20 dates make the most sense.

I voted 'Other' as I prefer September. Here's why:
1) I usually have a track day in October but won't have the track day schedule until next year.
2) I think there are fewer leaf watchers in September, thus making the roads less crowded.
3) The climb up the Cherahola Skyway and nights hanging outside at the Crow's Nest are so much colder in October than September.
4) The days are longer and warmer in September, and that makes CREEK BEERS so much better!

Kev makes some very good points, maybe Sept 25-29 should be added to the survey...

Early October is what I like, but I will be there regardless.

I picked the first week in October, the last week in September is always Eloise’s birthday and makes it so Lauren or I can’t come the whole time (Realistically Lauren and I know you guys like her better anyway) Also the heat is not my favorite. I’m comfy with creek beers at 70° as much is 80°

either weeks is fine for me, picking the October date means I need to take one day less of holiday since we have a public holiday (but that's no reason not to go for September if you prefer that).

So second or third week of September then >:)

How do you get 2nd or 3rd week of Sep from this conversation ?
