In no particular order, my (our) choices are:

I could give an excellent architectural tour of Philadelphia, and naturally I know the best location for a classic Italian hoagie.  In fact, I had one on Tuesday.

Oh, and we could have the Meet & Greet in the "Bear Room" of the Club Body Center.

You have to be difficult  ;D

You can't have three votes. If I give you three votes than I have to give everyone three votes. So, this is how I've broken it down for you.

Is this your final vote?

Kristina   Philadelphia         May
Oscar   New Orleans     May
Miriam   Orlando         May

I know it says to put in for one, but I'm putting in for 3.  Spank me next year, Dennis ;)

Me: Philly in early August
Hubby: NO in early August
Mim: will go where ever we do. ;)

Hubby has finals May 16th (18th?), then summer school starts in June and ends the last part of July.  Then regular session starts the end of August.  I do suggest that we NOT do NO during the Jazz and Heritage Festival.  You have to pay just to get into downtown and it gets very crowded very quickly.  Plus, hotels are probably already sold out - and they are expensive!

Posted in another thread but was asked to post her as well   :)


My vote:

1. Chicago
2. Seattle
3. London

Other great locations for me would be Helsinki, New Orleans, and D.C.

Not 100% sure I will attend in '10 due to work and school schedule but if I could any of the cities above would be appealing to me.

Well,

I would love to do Europe, or have Europe do me, whichever.

But I'm afraid until the economy perks up a bit, or the Europeans drop their prices, that isn't in the cards for me.

Regarding Chicago, I'm sure that would be great as well. I had a layover there on the way to and from Boston and I explored a little bit. I did discover that Chicago smells a lot like Mexico City, which I found interesting.

OK, my three nominations go to:

1 - Las Vegas - its reasonable and there are bunches of things to do. (And Tim said he could attend).

2 - New Orleans - Because we've never done The South and I think it would be fun. (And maybe Alan could attend).

3 - Chicago - Which I am sure will be fun, but I think would be a bit more expensive.

Time?

Spring is out for me. I don't think I can afford a trip so soon after the holidays.

August would be fine, but I'll go with the flow.

There you have it

HUGS,

Mark

I voted for Paris in post #59 but it seems to be the only city that escaped your list - any reason or just an oversight?

Hi AMG coordinator,  I will vote with my Davids for Las Vegas (so much fun,probably because no one does trashy better than Vegas, Cliff....)  My favorite month for it would be September, but the Razorbill can"t be with us.  So I will bear the heat in August, Earnestly,  for my friends!  If I only get a half of a vote as the Davids wife (LOL) that's OK

Bonnie,

The August heat is manageable... I think they even air condition the sidewalks!  I stayed there last summer just before going to Mexico City and it was 105 during the day, but still was able to go outside and walk around.  At the pool, one would definitely want the shade, but that is available too.

Warmth of 105 isn't bad at all. We hit that here several times this summer and all I used was my evaporative cooler.

I don't recommend gardening at 2 p.m. though.

Cleveland, Ohio - August
well, I have to change my suggestion. Who would have known when I put in a vote for Cleveland just two months ago, that things would be changing so much for me. LOL Within less then 2 wks, after 24 yrs in Ohio I'll be moving back down to the Carolinas.  :o

Because I still won't have a car and I'll still be on my fixed income, I'd like to change my suggestion to Charlotte NC:D It's been two and a half decades now since I lived there, so I can't recommend any of the advantages of holding AMG there. ROFL ;D I can't even point out any of the local sights as the city itself has literally tripled in population while I've been living up with the Yankees.  ;D If anybody else wants to choose Charlotte, I promise to find out all I can about the area to help make the trip good for y'all. ;)

It has been suggested we move forward with the final for the AMG 2010 destination.

Please review the information below, as well as the attached document. Please notify me immediately If I have overlooked you, entered your choice of destination incorrectly, or you would like to be added or change your choice at the last minute.

The top 3 destinations which are slated to be placed to a vote are…

Las Vegas   15 votes
Chicago        5 votes
London         4 votes


The month of August received 14 votes, followed by October with 4 votes. Many members did not mention a time of year or stated it didn't matter to them. I suggest we stick with the month of August as the time of year. Any objections?

Again, please review the attached information and notify me immediately of any errors or corrections that need to be made. We'll allow a few days for review before we start voting.

Looks fine.  RAB's vote is missing but it won't affect the outcome just moves Hot as Hell, trashy as ever, boring after 2 days, didn't we do that already Las Vegas up another notch!   ;D

Sounds like a good plan.  I think August is kinda the accepted month, not really sure it's worth voting on the month again.

Cliff, As has been stated earlier in this thread, NO we "All" didn't do Las Vegas, but a few from San Francisco gathering made it a stop on the way home.

As for the rest of your edict;  Las Vegas, like any other large city in the West, is equal to what YOU bring to the party.  If you bore that easy, I suggest that it is not "our collective" problem.

Oh Moffie you take me too seriously!  What's the point of voting if you can't do a little trash talking every now and then?

Looks fine.  RAB's vote is missing but it won't affect the outcome just moves Hot as Hell, trashy as ever, boring after 2 days, didn't we do that already Las Vegas up another notch!   ;D

Sounds like a good plan.  I think August is kinda the accepted month, not really sure it's worth voting on the month again.

notice those people who chose Vegas also chose Aug.  They're an odd group, those Vegans (?).  

Now I know Mike (mjmel) and Oscar (Minismomshusband) and I chose New Orleans.  I bet if you asked Mini (and why not?  she is going, isn't she?  In fact, were it not for Mini, why I don't think we would even be talking to Mom or Dad so there is an arguement her vote carries more far weight than her parents) ...anyway...if you were to ask Mini I bet, just because she loves her Daddy do much, she would vote for New Orleans.

Which means New Orleans also has 4 votes, tied with London.   ;D

So what do you say?

My unbiased opinion is the Robert is exactly right. I asked Mini and she said that she wants to go either to Disney World or where ever her daddy goes.  And with Yaka's vote, that gives 'Nawlins 5 votes - MORE than London.

p.s. To quote Mim exactly, she said, "yeah, sure, whatever." ;D

I think it would be beneficial to consider at least one city outside the US in the 3 choices.  I know some want those of us living outside the US to start a separate (but equal) event.  But that's not the point.  It's a gathering of people from all over, I loved SF for the fact that we all flew in from all over the globe to be together.  The more it's held in the US the less this happens.  I know most people outside the US have gotten a bit cynical about the whole process and just choose not to participate, but I have always remained (perhaps in vain) hopeful.

I understand that this is a democratic (and thus fair) process and I don't take exception to wherever the voting lands.  But I just ask folks to reconsider an all-American city selection result.

My last shot.

Well, right now it looks like it's going to be LAS in August although the way the voting seems to be swaying I think Huey Long might be running the election!  ;)  

However, if Chicago still has a chance I just wanted say that while I don't live in the city anymore (suburban Indiana about 45mins from downtown) I did live there 15yrs so could be of some help.

I agree with Cliff an AMG outside of the US would be great ... but I'm currently (or is that forever) poor so unless some AMG sugar daddy wants to pay my way I can't go too far.  :o

London.  

But it would have to be in the fall.  If London is ever going to have a shot at this it will have to be in the Off season (usually Oct. to Dec.)  

August is High Season and the fares are high.

The lowest fares are during the winter months (Jan-Mar).

I am, especially if it's in London or another venue on this side of the world. I might  attend if it's in NO, but Las Vegas, no way. I've got no interest in seeing Las Vegas and wouldn't dream of spending money to get/stay there.

Yes, YOU should vote for somewhere you can attend.  If you're not able to attend something in Vegas, it'd be foolish for you to vote for it. 

I agree that things come up and people don't attend.  However, why would somebody vote for a location when they know they will not be able, or have no plans to try, to attend.
