Please choose your preferred date for the Sploofus meeting in Philadelphia with a post to this thread.

Weekend of May 5th
Weekend of May 12th

Once we know the date we can consider events, hotels and travel plans.

Here's to Philly in the Spring!

Can't wait for this!!! I live here, so any date is pretty much good for me. Sunday May 13 is Mother's Day, so I don't know if that's a problem for some people. I usually get the VIP treatment that day. I don't like to miss it because that and my birthday are the only two days of the year when the hubby and kiddos seem to know where the hamper, sink and trash cans are.

Anyways, back on track...I guess I vote for the 5th. But I'm flexible because I live right down the road. Hopefully a bunch of people can make it, it should be a fun time!!!

May 5 would be my vote! Makes it possible for me, and a great celebration time!

Allena is fine with May 5...Surreyman will be waterlogged but it hardly matters...I plan on a hot toddy for the Welshman and he will be back to being as difficult as always.

Sob! I vote for May 12th, knowing I will be outvoted. I'll think of y'all as I am sitting with airline food over the Atlantic.

I'd love to come, but I'll be up to my arms in diapers and burping a new infant.
No, not mine - a star would shine in the east if that happened, but a new grandson is arriving late April.

Oh Geophile - Congrats and have a wonderful time with your grandchild! They are the best!! And sometimes they even smell good, too!

Gawd, the Virgineeeans won't put up with me until May!
I'll get a banana boat home, get some malts down long before Allena'll put his hand in his pocket, and start swimming back in April.

I have a grandchild due April 24...all will be well by May 5, they will be wanting space and I won't have to cook for the grandmother anymore for a while. She will be fed up with being fed by me. Last time, my loving daughter said something that translated as get out of the room, I need to scream alone.

Surreyman is bound to get so far into my pockets...suggest bringing deep ones.

Looks like May 5th so far. If you'd like to come and May 5th won't work for you, now's the time to say so! Whatever the final tally says on February 1 is what we'll go with, giving potential conventioneers 3 full months to make arrangements for travel and accomodation.

I vote "Yes!" for dates. I would prefer a Johnny Depp type.

Oh, dangit! You mean vote for when it's going to be held? Sorry, can't make it, but thank you for the invitation just the same.

Okay, ha ha. Now will you pranksters stop cluttering up my voting thread??? You're worse than hanging chads!

Are ya SURE you can't make it?

On Friday I'll be posting the official date for our gathering in Philadelphia. At the moment the weekend of May 5 seems a shoo-in, barring a late influx of conflicting choices. At that time I'll start a sign-up list and ask the locals to look at hotel and entertainment options. I've never organized anything more complicated than a family trip to the movies or a holiday dinner. Will those with local resources and organizational skills please make themselves known and available when the date is posted?

I expect to be in the area by the 2nd or 3rd and will be happy to do all I can.

Suggest picking a location or area. I am less than 200 miles away from all of Philly but think there is is good and a better area that someone closer can select. Good work Smoke.
