2 Days Left to get your Site Location Preferences in.....

Chicago still leading - but San Diego is a close second....

Preferences will be narrowed down to the top 3 --- and AMG 2013 Site Location Vote thread will begin on October 2nd.

Thanks,
Phil

Hi everyone,

Sorry to be so ignorant but what is AMG?

Sounds like you all have become a family and can't seem to wait until the next get together.

Open to new people joining in on the festivities?

Hi Mitch:

Here is a link that gives a bit of an idea of what AMG is all about:
http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=4794.msg54216#msg54216

Although, there is nothing that compares to actually going to one.

And yes, it is open to members, as well as those infected and affected by HIV...

Feel free to participate in the planning threads... it is always interesting how it unfolds and how it turns out...
AMG 2012 was my first one - and I truly enjoyed the experience.

Don't feel ignorant.  You can read back through the entire AMG threads and get a great idea of what happens.  mostly though, cause we tend to not post the entire truth ;D

I've never heard anyone who has went complain that they didn't enjoy it.  I had to go way out of my comfort zone the first time and now it's one of the yearly things I save for and look forward to.  Hope you can join us.

People are very welcoming to all new comers. It just seems a bit cliquish with the post on the forums because they all know each other from years past, but any new person that shows up is quickly integrated and isn't left sitting alone like a wallflower, trust me on that.

You will greatly enjoy yourself if you decide to go and will make many lasting friendships.

I have to echo what Miss P just shared . If you decide to go you will have the best time and wish it wasn't over so quickly . There is just something special about attending AMG that's had to describe .

Why not just nominate Tijuana? You can have a 5 day ketamine binge. And proper tacos.

I had an infamous night in Tijuana in 1991 on a business trip to San Diego (it is a half hour mass transit trip to the Mexican border from there.)  I recall making one of those drunken promises to God that "if I survived, I would never go there again.  Sick from Montezuma's revenge for three days.... nevertheless, in a group (for safety sake) it is great fun.  Of course San Diego has something for everyone even if you just stay in town. 

For everyone contemplating changing your votes, as long as your destination is in your top 3 that is all you need to do now.  We will vote from among the top three vote getters if I understand the process correctly.  The order of our top three for this round of voting is unimportant.

All of the top four or five destinations are wonderful...and we always manage to have a great time regardless of where we end up. 

And...to follow the recent discussions, our group LOVES newcomers and encourages as many as we can to see why we return year after year and plan our personal vacations around this event.

The Chicken Pie shop on El Cajon blvd was only blocks away from my house in San Diego , they some time served pigs in a blanket ... not exactly uncut cock but a tasty and age appropriate treat for an aging spinster such as you .

 http://www.yelp.com/biz/sd-chicken-pie-shop-san-diego .

I will have to admit the only reason this place got a good review is because its been around forever , it would kind be like calling your granny a used up tramp to trash the place . They don't use much salt there , its a hit with the over 50 hot crowd  ;) .   

If they decide to do this thing in San Diego we are going to have to discuss doing it on Coronado Island at the hotel Coronado . http://www.hoteldel.com/

My favorite place in the world is Huatulco, Mexico. If you go in November the weather is still great and there are no crowds. It is south of Acapulco. It is WAY out of the way, but they have an airport...I like going in November because I also get great rates on hotels...its a fabulous place to simply relax, and enjoy the beach.

Probably so ... some of the past hotels we have stayed at would have been pricey if not for the group rate .

If people wanted to do Coronado there are reasonable alternatives other than staying at the Del .

Coronado Island has so much to offer you could never leave the island and have a great stay .
