Official choice of place and time for AMG 2015
« on: January 01, 2015, 03:34:35 am »
We have the top three:

Memphis (9)

Philadelphia (8 )

Nashville (5)

Now, it is time to choose which location and the time of year. Please make your choices known in this thread. Voting will be open until Jan. 20.

HUGS,

Just to get the ball rolling, I will start the discussion.

I think Memphis would be a good choice, in part because I have never been there, and in part because we have never really held AMG in the South (aside from D.C.)

Also I think August would be a good time. My reasons are it seems to be the easiest time for many to attend.

So, whadda ya think?

HUGS,

Mark

I'm confused. Did you just close voting on the location from the other thread you began, as I can't tell from your first post in the other thread when voting ended?

Or was the other thread a "discussion" (meaning nominations) and now we're voting on the three winners. Again, this thread is lacking clarity.

edit: never mind -- I see where midway through the other thread you suddenly announced that 31 December was the end. Personally as far as Philadelphia goes, and as I expect that I would serve "tour guide" duties, I would request we consider my fair city for another year as I am not certain if my pain issues will be resolved enough by summer to perform adequately in what is a city one must do a lot of walking in to see effectively.

i read this as being a final vote, of the selections that made the short list from the other threads discussion. and a soft discussion on date

elucidation?

unless it is in PHL, i probably won't be attending this summer, prior engagement up the east coast

some great bar b que in memphis, but for a gathering i think nashville would suit much better... more suited for that sort of thing... just my opinion

I think Memphis has way more to offer visitors than Nashville. It's funky and diverse with tons to do. It's easy to get around and much friendlier and not conservative like Nashville. Ask Jan she loved it when she visited.

I'm torn between Nashville and Memphis, so for now I will go with Nashville, but if Memphis gets the vote I will be happy with that also. As Hal said I loved Memphis, Beale street was amazing, and I didn't quite get enough Elvis memorabilia.. ;D

The only month I can attend is August.

Look forward to hearing more about our 2015 AMG.

If y'all choose Memphis in August make it the week before or after death week for Elvis which I believe is the week before he died on the 16th. You wouldn't be able to find hotel rooms within an eighty mile radius of the city. It's a BIG deal.

No girl don't believe the hype. Downtown Memphis is safer than most big cities. I can point you in the right direction if you're looking for trouble. You'll love it here, it's not one of those wannabe southern cities, it's the real deal.

While I was at my daughters  house these last few weeks . I was watching the Memphis news station and from what they were saying the pyramid will be open sometime in may . from what they showed on the news it looks awesome inside and out!
sometimes it is best to say nothing at all. then to offend

 Hi  Bordem ,
                      AN  AMG   is a informal  gathering of a bunch of us .

     The name came from AIDS MEDS.   now POZ .

     It is a wonderful week vacation ; once you go to one , you will
     want to go to every gathering .
   very informal , a total blast . Nothing is really organized  :o
    I 've been to a few , I will be going this Summer .

    You will makes friends for a lifetime  :)

                                                  Carl

   P.s. Nice to meet you , I hope you vote and come this time .

Yeah I vote Branson too. As does Abso. He's an autograph hound, and loves the chase.
But would like to go to Dollywood too. (is it nearby ? lol)

Our schedules are open, but would prefer to avoid funerals, humidity and Elvis. (he stopped doing autographs).

I will vote for Memphis as well.  Especially since Miss Philly may not be up for walking around Philly this year.  I have been to Nashville and saw many AMG members there back in 2005, but I have not been to Memphis.

Since there is the Elvis ceremony in mid-August, I was thinking it might be prudent to start the trip on Thursday, July 30 or Friday, July 31 through say, Tuesday, August 4. What do you folks think?

Look forward to seeing you good people after a two year hiatus.  Hugs.

If you don't want to go to Philadelphia, just say it. Don't use the illustrious Miss P as an excuse.
Does Memphis offer something more user friendly for Miss P. after the 3hr flight ?

If you don't want to go to Philadelphia, just say it. Don't use the illustrious Miss P as an excuse.
Does Memphis offer something more user friendly for Miss P. after the 3hr flight ?

I'm sure if Jody wanted to go to Philly regardless of Miss P and her feet, he would say so. He doesn't need to make excuses.

To answer your question: Does Memphis offer something more user friendly for Miss P. after the 3hr flight the answer would be yes it does, friends who will help him get around instead of him feeling obliged to be our tour guide, it can be more relaxing for him.

I've obviously been to Nashville many times so I'm throwing my vote to Memphis.  Never been there.  We'll be able to drive there which will be nice since I will be nice and rested after Greg does all the driving.  :)

I certainly missed seeing everyone this past year and am looking forward to it.  And since I won't be scouring the late night bar scenes, you all might get to know me a little better.  ;)

Thanks Jan, there can be no better friend than you to have my back :)

Hi Irisheyes, I would love to go to Philadelphia, it has been about 20 years since I got down there and it looks like the city is very nice now.  I hope to get there this Spring as it is only 100 miles or so away for me and if AMG '16 is held there that would be great.  But when David said it would be difficult this year to help folks get around that clinched my Memphis vote. 

Hugs to all.

Jody :)

OK, I'm voting for Memphis, but I also vote that we finalise a date soon. I put in a vacation request just today for July 8-17 as we are supposed to go to a friend's wedding in Cali, but I will gladly cut that trip down to a weekend if I need to take additional time off in August. I'll have to tell them tomorrow that I jumped the gun.

I planned to close the vote on Jan. 20th. If that is too late, we can do it sooner.

I think either planning for the very first week of August or the last week of July might be best, to avoid the Elvis frenzy.

I also have started exploring train routes should Memphis be the choice. ;) If so, I will get the chance to travel on a route I have always wanted to take but to date haven't - the Sunset Limited. It is the train made famous in the second of the "Thin Man" movies.

I am all a tingle already.

HUGS,

Mark

That will probably be one of my most cherished memories for AMG.  I still remember every detail of Chocolicious and all our treking to scope out the scenes for evenings.  I think you and I have the best gaybardar there is.  :) 

On another note, there are many of us within driving distance so perhaps we can plan ride sharing that could include kidnapping Betty and head down yonder.

Depending on how many agree, I have access from bikes to motor homes.  ;)  so I can do accomodate many.  Bring a convertible, and we'll pay your gas money esp if it's the caddy.
