AMG Chicago Attendance

<< < (17/33) > >>

Jody:
Hey Mitch, I hope you and other folks do get to do AMG'13 in Chicago and enjoy all the wonderful times I have had over the years with a great bunch of people.  I would have loved to meet you and your partner, I believe you live in CT maybe we can hook up one of these days.  I hope to get back on the horse for 2014 for sure.

It seems that there is enough consensus and enough people who have agreed to go.

Rock on AMG's.

Jody :)

Train reservations made, email confirmation received.

I am good to go!

HUGS,

Mark

I haven't forgotten you guys.  I still have a major work conflict on Saturday smack dab in the middle of AMG.  I have been checking airfares and it looks like for $230 roundtrip I could leave Chicago early Saturday morning (7:30 ORD) and get to Louisville in time for my obligation.  I could possibly get a 4:30 flight back that afternoon or more realistically (and less of a white knuckle ride) at 6:30 pm and arriving an hour later in Chicago.  This way I can arrive Thursday afternoon and depart for home on Tuesday.  Before I commit to this additional expense, I need to be sure that we schedule the memorial service for Sunday rather than Saturday.  I assume the M&G is Friday, but if it is Saturday I can arrive fashionably late. 

Organizers...would this be OK (primarily my request to have Memorial anytime on Sunday.)  I hate to miss whatever happens on Saturday, but I will be back in the early evening (wait for me!!) 

I don't know how long the tickets for the Saturday up and back will stay at $230 so a quick response will be appreciated.  I REALLY want to come to AMG and this is the only way I can make it work this year.

P.S.  Vacation in Las Vegas next week (Tuesday through Saturday)  Everytime I look at the Stratosphere (how can you miss it--tallest building in town) I think of our alternate AMG there, especially our jumpers!  I will toast you all (and perhaps even post in the forum) when on the Strip.

Gary,

I don't see any problem at all with having the Memorial Service on a Sunday, especially since we haven't really started the planning on it yet.

and of course, what would a Memorial Service be without our beloved Gary at the helm  ;)

I would say go ahead and plan your business for Saturday.

I'll holler at Dennis and Phil and advise them of this as well.

You are my hero!  Will toast you in Vegas next week!
