Default Just an idea ...

Think about it ... Why not trying to plan some kind of outing, even just a long week-end, somewhere where anybody can drive/fly??

It might be fun to meet each other and do a couple of shots?

So, as exemple and assuming that the majority of us are all over USA/Canada, somewhere in the middlewest?

Just a thought

Hum Steven,

Then I might suggest the Banff National Park, it is also full of sun (Sunny Alberta, remember?), water (rivers, snow in high peaks, glaciers), full of wildlife (bears, deers, mountain goats, bighorns, mosquitos, etc...) and you can even find some humains playing golf, biking, hiking, etc...

Ok, just kidding ... one extreme to the other

My vote is that we all meet at Steven's home in Tampa, FL. this November.
By that time, everyplace I can think of is really getting fairly cold, wet, dreary,
or just plain inhospitable. The gulf coast side of Florida, at that time, is pretty spectacular.

Whaddya think Steven? I'll pack my bags as soon as you give us the go-ahead.........

LOL. Why not, our house is usually a revolving door for company from up north. And since they often are relatives I can't charge them.

Let's see, what is a good price per person per night?? Hey, at going rates I might be able to retire after all.

Hi Steven,

paying for my overnight accommodations is not a problem for me. But, I am used to a certain , shall we say, minimum acceptance level.

i.e. this is the last place we stayed while in your lovely state:
