AMG 2009 Destination Vote ONLY
« on: August 28, 2008, 08:29:06 AM »
Hello Everyone,

In an effort to get things back on track, I've started a new thread.  Below is my original post.  Please only use this thread to cast your vote for AMG 2009.  Please start a new thread for an issues pertaining to how AMG is organized or feel free to send me a pm.

I was going to wait a bit before starting this post.  However, since the question has already been posed, here we go.

Without a doubt, the most difficult task of any AMG is deciding upon the location.  Every destination has positive and negative qualities.  Unfortunately, no matter how hard we try, our group is too diverse and spread out out over vast distances to please everyone. 

With that said, planning for next years AMG has begun and choice of destinations have been narrowed down.  In all fairness to those who attended AMG this year, they were given the honor of narrowing down our choices for AMG 2009. 

AMG 2009 will be held in...


Boston or Chicago

Please do your due diligence in researching the 2 choices above and clearly cast your vote below.  You may also include your reason for the city you choose.  Voting will continue for a month or until there is a clear winner.

To make the tally of votes easy, please limit your discussion in this thread to the topic at hand.[/i]

Both are great places...although hotels in both cities may be quite expensive.  I am curious what we may work out.  Boston does allow for the possibility of an after or before visit to Provincetown.....

ever so slightly in favor of Boston   (but would be perfectly fine with Chicago...I can actually drive there!)

Boston, cause I've never been there.

Is Salem nearby?

Truly, I would be happy with either location.

I plan to Amtrak it this time, so I can bring all the damn luggage I want!

Hello Everyone:

WOW!  How great is it to see so many members voting for either CHICAGO  ;D or Beantown  >:(

Whatever location is eventually chosen is fine with me. 

I do have to share a bit of inside information though.  (And you didn't hear this from me, o.k.?)

(Promise?)

Well alright then here goes.

I have it on very good authority that in the off chance the current trend for Boston is reversed, then a certain goat herding, alpaca raising, pig spoiling, great grandmother (not mentioning any names mind you  ::)), will be performing this number at the Meet and Greet.

Rab's vote is included in the numbers above but somehow got cut off when I copied and pasted the pivot table into the post.

Just in case though I'll throw another vote at Chicago and call it at...

Boston 26

Chicago 14

Boston still ahead by a considerble amount.  So again, if no one objects, AMG 2009 will be held in Boston.

If nobody objects, I'd like to declare Boston as the destination for AMG 2009.

BOSTON IT IS!

I think this pretty much sets the mood!   ;D

I guess this means i don't get to show off and sing "Chicago Illinois" after all , I had the dress and everything all ready..oh well it's your loss... ;D

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about ...see RAB's post #35



Hugs

I voted for Chicago because I went there once in college and loved it...however, when RAB mentioned "lobster" it took me back...back to the late 1960s, when I lived near Boston and I developed a taste for my favorite food--LOBSTER!

YAY FOR LOTSA LOBSTER!!! I may have to eat it every day while we're there!!

Hi friends,

The vote looks very good.  Thom and I are on board.  We both have some old haunts there.  Now we have to check if they are still there.  You know, things change over time.  The piano bar at Delmonico's Grill.  Jimmy's Harborside.  Best lobster I have ever had (sorry RAB who doesn't know what he's missing).  The Commons is a must see landmark.  And RAB, thanks for the Cheers theme song.

Now let's hope we can find a local Ambassador to help us from their end.

More later.  Til then, love and hugs, R&T
