We need YOUR input........

Kentucky lake area near Paducah is very nice but maybe to close to  the big event on the river.

I think the ideal location for another Gathering will be somewhere more centralized for more people, and with other attractions nearby. I am working on some locations....more later ;D

Just sayin'.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugby,_North_Dakota...  ;) Rugby is located at

48°22′2″N 99°59′46″W (48.367129, -99.995979)[8]. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.94 square miles (5.02 km2), all of it land.[1] Rugby claims to be the geographic center of North America and a monument stands in the city to signify this. The monument features flags of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. ;D

I think that the next one should be in Gruene, TX.

The only alternative to that would Chama, New Mexico.

You beat me to it (not the Gruene part, but TX).  I hear there is a lot of stuff to do in DFW.  ::)

I agree with Rick on this one..a small gathering is the best. You get a chance to meet and get to know the people.

X3    A few more would've been nice, but the smaller group was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent there. What a great bunch of folks! :)


Since we now have at least 5 active members here in Ohio, as well as others within reasonable driving distance, I am going to look into a few places here in Ohio to do some sort of a gathering.

There is a range  in the number of attendees that you really need to make it financially worthwhile for sponsors, and - it does not need to be big enough to create a "media circus".

This helps to keep the cost to put on an event down, and prevents it from being a burden to anyone - so everyone can enjoy it to it's fullest.

For those of us not on the West coast Nashville Tn is fairly central.
I don't know if anyone lives in the area , you almost have to have a point-man in the area.

I thought Kentucky sounded reasonable.     Near the Tennessee - Kentucky line should be center for a lot of folks.  Lots of lakes up that way.
Lean over toward Texas, Arkansas, La. ,  If there is enough response from that direction.

 As we come up with spots do polls to see how many would be able to attend them and go from that.

Polling sounds like a good idea Terry. It may take a few polls combined to create a consensus….But really worth it. Anyone here ant to take the lead on setting up a poll?

The separate polls that we may wany to consider ( and please add to the list as you think about this:

1. max. distance that is reasonable to drive ?
2.best time of year for participants to travel ?
3.how many days is considered optimal for a gathering ?

Sorry Tim I'm just seeing this for some reason.
 I can drive about 6 hours before the scrap metal in my hip get's ticked off. However I'm not opposed to 12 hours.  Is there a way to look at the Google maps attached on this site and see everyone that marked where they live on it ?
