    Ok gang, I spoke to Joe today and he said either the Weekend of Oct 1 or Oct, 15 are ok with him. The colors will obviously be better the weekend of Oct, 1.

    So I am going to try to post a poll in this or in another thread. If folks really want I'll put in the weekend of Oct 8 but I'd like to keep it at the 1st or 15th if possible. ( You can vote for more than one choice)

    The deal is that I am the interim president of Angel Flight East and due to airport construction at Wings our major fall fundraising event has been pushed back to Oct 1 for this year only and I really need to be there so if you choose the weekend of Oct 1 I won't be there, nor will I be there the weekend of Oct 8 as it is Yom Kippur. However I will plan the event regardless of what weekend the poll chooses regardless of what ever weekend you choose. I'm ok with what ever you choose so just pick what works best for you!

    Please Please only vote in the thread if there is a reasonable chance you will attend.

    Ok, I goofed when voting. I voted for the 1st, which is valid, but the 15th will work also.

    Thanks Adam!

    I have the 7th already marked off at work, but I don't anticipate a problem changing it, as long as it is soon. Oct 8 is Leslie's birthday, which we can't change! :)

    October 15 is best for me. October 8 is a no-go.

    Yay for the third weekend - yay for missing the colors. You do realize the further it gets pushed back the more potential for icing right? I can go any weekend but the third is by far the worst choice.

    The high holidays are late this year and hit the first two weekends of October. I put in for the 15th for that reason. Yeah, the colors won't be as good, and there is a greater possibility for wx. However, the risk is at best incremental. Indeed, we could easily have better wx in the middle of October than the beginning. I've seen it happen over and over.

    Any other weekend. I'll be on business travel until the 14th, so turning around and leaving again for the weekend is gonna be tough.

    Definitely a no go for third weekend, 10/15.
    Other two aren't promising, but not impossible.

    Oh, to be made of money and time... (yeah, I have several competing "priorities")

    Can't please everyone. But I hope lots can make it. Last year attendance was light, and we still had a great time. The only down side is we had to depart early for wx, and got badly stuck because of it.

    That seems to be the pattern in WV and Western PA -- storms race across the plains then get stuck and churn overhead.

    We've experienced a noticeable weather improvement since moving east of the Alleghenies...

    If it falls on the 15th, it will be the FIRST POA fly-in event that has fallen on my time off from work. After having 2-3 weeks off every month for the better part of the last 7 years, I have yet to attend an event due to it always falling on a weekend when I'm traveling for work.

    I'm sure I can talk Ted into flying me down that weekend if that's how the schedule shakes out.

    I hope it happens on that weekend, that the weather cooperates, and that you can indeed make it.

    Silly question - but if a person came to this event (via commercial airliners and rental cars) - what are the "official" dates? Fri - Sun? More days? Less?

    If you fly commercial to IAD, you can probably get one of us in the DC area to give you a ride. UA and Virgin have nonstops from SFO.
