Southern Spring Gathering
« on: January 15, 2007, 05:46:59 PM »
Since we have several forum members in the Southern U.S. would anyone be interested in a Regional Southern Spring Gathering sometime in May this year?  Maybe Atlanta GA, Birmingham AL, or Charlotte NC? Of course this would be open to all forum members that can or would want to  attend. Just an idea Lisa and I were throwing around on the phone a few days ago.

Sounds like a possibility, but D and my weekends (the holiday weekends, anyway) are pretty much full.  Let's see what those of us in the South can figure out.

I would be interested also -- depending on when, of course. 
I'm from Richmond, VA -- so my vote would be for Charlotte (of the three choices given).

I just threw those locations out as suggestions. Not many people have resoonded to this idea yet. Hopefully they will in the next few days.

How does mid May sound to you? I thought it would be a good time of year. It won't be very humid then & not many people doing the vacation thing yet.

May can get kind of hectic for me since I'm in K-12 education but if you get something planned I'd do my best to get there if possible.  Even though I'm officially from St. Louis, my place of work (and where I stay during the week) is only about 1 1/2 hours north of Memphis.  I particularly like the Atlanta idea since I've never been there.

Sounds like a winner to me.  I am in Atlanta, but would travel to the "Southern" locale most preferred.

May could be good, as long as it's early May.  I know D and I, and I assume others, have plans for Memorial Day weekend.

Yay, a "Southern AMG".......I'll wave a little handkerchief and say "Y'all come back now, ya hear?"....(those who ever went to Six Flags Over GA when they were little know what I am talking about - remember the Okefenokee Swamp Ride?)

I vote for Atlanta.

Alan I was hoping you would be interested in joining us for this little get together. Atlanta seems like the logical choice. It's centrally located to most of us & we wouldn't have to fly to get there. I don't know Atlanta very well though so I would need help with finding a good hotel in a safe area.

Does Atlanta sound good for everyone else? Can anyone help me plan this thing? When do we want to do this? I was thinking mid may. I just looked at the calendar. Mothers day is May 13th. Maybe we should do this the the first weekend  May 4th, 5th & 6th. What does everyone think?

Lets do this! AMG SOUTHERN STYLE!!!!

Atlanta sounds fine -- and, at present, any time in May would work for me.

I would be happy to help, with one small caveat -- work is going to be slamming me (and not in the good way  ::)) from now until I leave for vacation on Feb 9th.  However, I will return from Hawaii refreshed and reinvigorated on the 19th -- at that point I should be able to help out.

It's about 450 miles / 7 hours for us, so we'll probably end up looking for a flight, if we can find something cheap.  Otherwise, we'll spend most of the weekend (I assume it'll be a weekend) driving.  I'm sure that, as many members we have from Atlanta, we can find decent accommodations in a fun area.  Spring is a busy time with local events, festivals, etc in many places, so we'll probably need to have a local let us know what's going on so we'll know what dates to avoid.

David,
AirTran and Delta as well as US Scare, I me US Air.  All fly out of Charlotte and Greensboro except AirTran.

The Sheraton Colony Square on 14th and the Wyndam on 10th in Midtown are good hotels in the area.  Just a suggestion.  I am sure there are many on this forum who can add to this list.  Just starting the process!

As we live on the coast, GSO and CLT are each about 4 hours away.  Raleigh is a possibility, or ILM, but not much selection from there (ILM that is).

Nice to know that you planned on doing something like this for us southerns. Would be nice to go and see most all of you again. Seems to me just coming down to visit with Lisa is about how far I will get to a gathering this year. Maybe next year will be better for me this year is tied up with bills and other things. But from the past few gatherings it was an experience in itself and hope that those attend will have a blast.

David,
AirTran flys our of Triangle and should compete against Delta and US Air.  Check the web.  You can take the train from the airport to the the Sheraton on 14th ($1.75 each way).  Just a brisk walk or hail a cab at MARTA.

Thanks for the info.  I didn't know AirTrans was flying out of RDU.  It should be a bit cheaper.  I'll check on it.

I checked flight prices at Delta.com a few days ago. they showed 178.00 round trip from Charlotte NC to Atlanta Ga.

I guess we've decided on what city to hold this thing. Now we need a hotel that isn't too expensive. Maybe some of the Atlanta members can give us some feedback. It doesn't really matter to me if it is in a "Gay" area or not.

Is the weekend after Mothers Day good for everyone?

May is brilliant.

Is everyone set on Atlanta?

Edit:

Atlanta works.  So well.  So very, very well. 

Question... since it's the stupid hotels that kill me on fees... I'd probably stay in a hostel... annnnnnd... when you say weekend after Mother's Day... do you mean the weekend of Friday the 18th of May?  Because I'm not off those days.  The weekend before rocks pretty hard (Sat. 5 May), in that I'm off... but the weekend afterwards I have to work.  I really wanna go, so if a date is decided soon, I can tweak my schedule.

If you want to be in Midtown, the Sheraton Colony Square on 14th and Peachtree as well as the Wyndam on 10 and P'tree are gay friendly and near the park, bars and restaurants.  I have seen some B&B's on Piedmont in Midtown, but I do not know if they are good.  There are many other chain hotels downtown away from the Midtown.  About a three mile drive.

Can some other Atlanta people chime in here and add some meat (don't get any ideas) to this?

Cheers and thanks!

At this point anytime in May should work for me.  Hopefully my partner, Sid, will be able to make it too.  With some luck, the dates will allow Aupointillimite to come too -- that way we'll have 3 from Richmond (well, 2 pozzies anyway....)

Looking forward to it.

Thanks, Dan, but CLT is almost half way to Atlanta.  We'll just end up driving, I guess.  When is Mothers' Day, anyway?  If the week after is the 18th, that should work ok for us.  I'd prefer the hotel to be in a 'gay' area, hopefully, we'd be close to clubs.  Would this be a Friday-Sunday thing or Thursday-Sunday?  We've got quite a few friends in Atlanta we'll likely visit, too.  Hopefully, somebody more familiar with Atlanta will help out with hotels... it's been so long since I've spent any time there I haven't a clue as to what's decent.  I guess it's time to get a count and see about a group rate for a hotel.

Whoa... I screwed up!

I am off from 18 May to 23 May.  I can probably get off for that Friday with minimal bitching from my boss... or trade the Friday for the Wednesday.

I work a weird rotational schedule... and sometimes I get confused with the little numbers on the calendar. 

The weekend after Mother's Day is wide open for me.  And that's final.

I'm breathing a bit easier now.

Sounds like we need some organization here.  No matter what date you pick, somebody's gonna get left out. I vote May 19
I live in Atlanta too, and could work with Nico and (give us a week) we could list 5 Hotels for everyone to pick from. Or something like that. Nico? can you IM me and.

Decide the date first, accomidations second.  my two cents

May 19th is fine with me. I do need help organizing this gathering.  Finding an affordable hotel in a safe area that is convient to some of the sights would be grat. If anyone in the Atlanta area can suggest something then please go ahead.

Count me in too. I'm already looking at cheap flights and cheap hostels. Jay

Yeah, that's about as far I got. I do have friends in Atlanta but they live in a suburban McMansion with two kids.

Some of us could end up being dorm mates for a few nights. How funny!

Oy! I'm only ten years older than you. But that's old enough to give you a "well-intentioned" spanking if you miss your curfew.

I see mention of May 19th... is this just a Sat-Sun thing?  Why not try for Friday-Sun.  it's a bit of travel time and/or expense for less than two days.  This way we'll have at least one whole day.

I might be able to come on Friday... but I don't know yet. 

I'd bet on it... but if not, I'll be down on the 19th.  Whoo hoo!
