Hey, let me know if you still are interested in taking a cruise ship for AMG after watching this.

I love the guy riding the desk.

I actually rode out the equivalent of a category-1 hurricane for 18 hours on a cruise ship in the Baltic... not cute, though I handles it better than most of the passengers.

I figure next week I will once again post the list of the suggested spots, then perhaps some of those with previous experience can guide me/us through the process and we can start the narrowing down and do voting in October.  If we can have a site picked by end of October - I think that would be ideal - as it gives people a good 9-10 months (approx.) to plan and for all the details to be planned out -

Any thoughts about the above, criticism, etc.??

Take vote of all the locations proferred and then once you have the results you can take the top 2 and allow people to vote amongst only them.  This makes sure that everyone's vote counts even if their original vote for location doesn't make it into that second tier.  It also gives people 2 opportunities to put in their 2 cents just in case say someone gets hog tied in their bedroom for a week by some dominican guy with a serious bondage fetish.

Your idea sounds cool,  although to me it is a tad bit early, but maybe I still ahve "Vegas lag."

I recommend picking Dennis' head for any tips, suggestions. His knowledge will be invaluable, especailly when you get down to picking venues and negotiating rates further down the road. I know he's extrememly busy, but perhaps if you sent him a PM now he might be able to respond in a week or so.

The first thing you need to do is start a new thread for the express purpose of people putting forward their choice of location. No chat, just posts stating their choices. It needs to be clearly titled and the first post needs to spell out that it is a preliminary location thread and not for banter. This will make it easier to go through and catch everyone's choice. If you have to wade through banter, some people's choices may be overlooked.

Once everyone has been given plenty of time to put forward their choice, then you count up the results and the top three are voted on in another thread. This is how it's been done for the past few years, as far as I can remember.

You start the thread, and I'll sticky it for you. You should also start a thread in OT letting people know that there is a thread in this forum where the next location is being hashed out. Lots of people don't check this forum regularly and may not realise that you guys have been talking locations already.  I can sticky the thread in OT as well.

Thanks Ann - I will do that a little later today (start the thread) and send you a PM when I do so it can be stickied.

Thanks again for your assistance.

You're welcome, Phil.

BTW, I hope you have experience at herding cats. You're gonna need it! ;D
