AMG 2016...Time to pick a town, venue and date
« on: February 12, 2016, 02:14:06 pm »
Some folks, especially with families and work schedules need to start thinking about a venue and time for AMG 2016.

Minimom already got us started with Philadelphia, presumably over July-August.

That would work for me as well but I shall get the ball rolling by nominating my first three choices.

Philadelphia, PA.

Albuquerque, NM

Austin, TX

July or August work for me and the time is flexible for me.

Cleveland OH
Charlotte NC
Atlanta GA


I haven't seen you guys since Seattle (2011) :( I know I keep promising Wolfie every year that I'll go and then don't. I'll make (and probably break) that promise again this year. LOL BUt I haven't even been back to OH since I left there in '09 :( , so don't be mad at me. Instead vote for Cleveland - that way I can see Wolfie and hang out with the gang again. Afterwards I could hit up all my old homies in Canton before heading back to home in the Carolinas.

3 official votes for Philly (mum, Mini, and hubby) July / August are HOT and I don't do heat. Would love to do it in the fall, but our oldest leaves for Basic Training in June and graduates from AIT in mid-September. Our pick is close to the end of August / beginning of September. Prices would be cheaper after Labor Day.

2nd and 3rd choices: Hubby: New York or New Orleans
                                    : Mini: Disney World or our house or Jan's house
                                    : Mum: anywhere but New Orleans

Note to Lakis...I am sorry that I bypassed your choices in the other thread as we will try to stick with this formal thread.  Lakis has chosen:

Heidelberg, Germany
Athens, Greece
Krakow, Poland

Lakis, I would love to go to those places and I may be in Europe in May if all works out but the only AMG in Europe was London 2010 and I was the only American who was able to make it.  Cliff is a former American who lives in London now.  Anyway, I do believe most folks who attend AMG cannot afford Europe but certainly if is open to suggestion and thanks for your votes.

as we have mentioned in years past, Lakis, you're also welcome to arrange/hold a local AMG. These AMG events are simply member-driven and arranged trips without any corporate sponsorship, so all it takes is leadership and member interest to put together a "local" AMG. The voting in 2009 arranged the "official" AMG in London; but since many PLWH in America cannot afford an overseas trip (HIV and poverty often go hand-in-hand for many people in the States), an "unofficial" AMG was also held in Las Vegas that year.

Philly could still work.  You could arrive in columbus early and we could drive to northern ohio then over to philly.  It's less than a 6 hour drive if I remember correctly.

Let's do Philadelphia... I am closer to it than to NM! Not early August, I am already busy until the 15th.. But... majority rules!  :) :)
Today January 20, 2020, I have taken 2378 pills of my ARV since first pill. This means 79 bottles of 30 pills of ARVs at an average of $3950 per bottle or $313,103 USD for my treatment. I have a compliance of 99.83% taking my meds and only .17% (or 4 pills) non-compliant. Of these four pills two I forgot completely, One I lost and one I didn't have with me while traveling! I became UD 3 months after treatment start   ***We are all dealing with this. And we will live long and productive lives!! AND, yes the Lord is my shepherd. Life is good... And thanks for the meds! ***

A few of us had considered Philly for September, maybe just a long weekend, nothing too formal.  August won't work for me, after Labor day does or June-July.  So if that works maybe we can start to prepare.  If it isn't meant to be this year than so be it, maybe next year.  Hugs.

I was so hoping this would be the needed bump...but alas.  I'm taking my vacation (much needed) and have saved the money.  Watching a real life broadway musical has always been a dream.

Soooo........ummmmm.......yeah.

Is anything happening here with AMG this year, or are we calling it quits with AMG 10 in Memphis?

Hi Tim...a few of us have mentioned Philadelphia as a possible AMG '16 spot...For me mid to late September or even October of early November works best. Waiting for Mini and mum and a few others and then maybe we can coordinate some long weekend there.

Hugs, Jody
