AMG 2014: Preliminary Site Location Preference - OFFICIAL THREAD
« on: September 14, 2013, 10:21:33 AM »
Hi All:

Just slightly over one year ago (August 26, 2012) the AMG Preliminary Site Location Preference thread was started. As those who have experienced an AMG know, it takes months to plan this event, so it is time to start the thread to get ideas of possible sites and time of year for AMG 2014, so here you have it the AMG 2014 Preliminary Site Location Preference Official Thread. a couple of weeks earlier. Please read the information below. Also, when providing site preferences, please note that it would also be good to provide a time of year (month) that you would recommend for AMG 2014.

Please use this thread to state your site preference(s) for AMG 2014. PLEASE LIMIT YOUR RESPONSES TO A MAXIMUM OF THREE LOCATIONS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE CONSIDERED FOR SITE LOCATIONS TO HOST AMG 2014. Also, include a time of year (month) next to your site selection --- so, try to present your info as follows:

Example:
Site Time of Year
ABC Land August
Candyland Sept
Never Neverland July

This thread will allow for the gathering of a list of potential sites for AMG 2014. The list of potential sites will be narrowed down to the Top 3 locations for a future voting thread to be established. Then we can discuss rational behind the selections (e.g. cost factor, distance, things to do, weather)

To allow ample time for preferences to be made and to narrow down the list based on those preferences - let's accomplish this particular part (naming preferences) by October 18, 2013.

Thanks for your input. If you have any questions regarding the above, feel free to PM me.

AMG 2014 here we come!!

Phil

I normally don't contribute to the Site Location Preference, but I figured I would do so this year to take away the "I don't want to be the first person to post site location preferences" fear or anxiety that anyone may have  ;D

So, here you go - in no specific order...

- Philadelphia  August

- New Orleans  October

- San Diego   July or August

Hi Mitch:

Yeah - we typically limit it to a person's top 3 preferences - than we get enough locations to narrow the number down to 3 of the top selections which then go up for vote to arrive at a final location. In the past there have been 16 - 20 different locations named, with three rising to the top... Those three then get voted on and we then have our AMG site   ;D

Thanks Jeff - this should generate some discussion -
Although, I don't know what we will do if it becomes selected as the "top" preference (pun intended)

Better call Ryan's agent....and tell him he is going to have company

27 Days to list your three site preferences for AMG 2014
(along w/ a time of year, if you have a preference)

So far, the leaders are (hopefully, with many more preferences to be named):

1) New York, NY (6)
2) San Diego, CA (5)
3) Philadelphia, PA (3)   TIE
    New Orleans, LA (3)   TIE

There are 10 other preferences that have also been selected - each w/ 1 "tick" - not a vote yet, as these are preferences

Ryan Gossling's butt is "trailing" (well, actually it has 1 "tick" also)....

Keep those preferences coming.

1) Cleveland, Ohio in September (I could visit family)
woohoo! another cleveland nomination.

Come on, Ann. At least nominate it. We'll worry about how to get you here across the pond after Cleveland is chosen ;)

Isn't Utah alcohol free?
yes, that would be have to be one of the requirements of any location. It has to have access to liquor and it has to have access to gay bars ;) preferably within walking distance of course - and not uphill if possible LOL

Fret not sweet children, if you should chose the City of Brotherly Love I will make sure you have an enjoyable experience, provided my hooves are not in surgery! You know I have the low-down on all of the best eats here.

That said, having lived in NYC for 15 years I should be able to make suggestions for things there as can Jodilicious.

ok, happy wherever we end up and could list so many places to go, many of which some of you have already been, but since the limit is 3...

in no order.

San Francisco - anytime  (for the incredible beauty. visited about 8 times and have never felt like I've had enough)

Cruise - anytime (more intimate setting, new experience for me, and maybe a bit more relaxing.)

Choice number 3 - I can't quite decide yet. (sorry Phil to be such a pain in your behind. :).)

It depends a lot on day of week. I have a friend who stays in a lot of hotels, so I've vicariously picked up a thing or two. Avoid Tuesdays, apparently. Who knew?

Through Hipmunk you can stay at the Affinia tonight for only $159 and Cassa for $233. Those are two of my favorites. I don't know why.

But yeah, it's hit or miss.

While I have been a little out of touch here lately, I will still throw my votes in - in hopes that I can make it this time.

1.) New Orleans
2.) Philly
3.) San Francisco

The timing for all three would be late September or early October -- this would be after all the schools start (which should mean lower hotel room rates) and hitting good weather.

I look forward to meeting more of you,

15 days left to get your site preferences in...

The standings to date in regards to location preferences are:

1) TIE - New Orleans, New York, San Diego (each with 8 'ticks')
2) TIE - Denver, Philadelphia (each with 5 'ticks')
3) TIE - Charlotte, Cruise, San Francisco (each with 3 'ticks')

No matter where we end up, AMG 2014 has the potential to be our biggest and best yet.... Let's make it happen!

Remember, site preference locations thread will close on October 18th.
