Corp Whore has tagged me on FB, so I’ll say that the reason I haven’t said anything about this is that it is very unlikely we’ll be able to attend, so I’ll stay out of the planning talk. Our anniversary is in April, so we typically go somewhere for that. We’ll be in the UK for XMAS this year and plan to be in Estonia in summer 2019 and probably again the following winter. Obviously we would love to be at any JUOTA and I wouldn’t rule it out if it was nearby or flights were super cheap somehow. So plan away, I’m sure it’ll be excellent wherever it is and I’m glad people want to get it going again.

Nothing. I went a couple months ago to a tradeshow. While a nice little city, there's not much there there.


Boulder, however, is beautiful and has tons of great bars and restaurants (or at least did when I was there last - visiting none other than our own Davey the Fat Boy!) Plus, CAG and Feeb are there (I assume they'd welcome us, but of course should that become a serious contender we should certainly check in with them before we appoint them hosts!)

I'm cool with wherever, and no guarantees that I/we can make it anyway, but I would most definitely love to see this happen.

If it's San Diego, my presence would be at least 95% certain.
If Denver/Boulder, it probably dips to 75-80%
Vancouver/Toronto/DC maybe just a little below that, but I would make every effort.

I would try for New Orleans, but as I said, I'm more interested in somewhere we haven't been before (though I'd probably do Austin again in a heartbeat).

That’s on my list of places to go, for sure.

I am in, as long as it is somewhere new. Toronto sounds good. I missed the Austin one, so that would be fine too.

I wasn't sure I could make this because I have another possible trip planned earlier in the month. But what the hell, I'm up for it!

I like the idea of Savannah or Toronto, though I'm not too fussed.

For me it's:

1. San Diego/Tijuana
2. Denver/Boulder
3. Vancouver (could include Seattle)
4. Toronto
5. Austin

I like the idea of Savannah well enough, but it might not be that practical for us being on the whole other side of the country.

Austin would result in one or more new tattoos, grok.
And gives us Minnie and Baron.

Don't know what kind of immunizations we'd need for Middle Earth.

To be clear, we're absolutely thrilled if people want to come to Austin and any year people want to do that is great. I'm not pushing for it though because it's kinda bogus when people volunteer their own cities, and we've had a few big gatherings here in the past. On the plus side, there is lots to eat and drink here, lots of music and record shopping, the city changes fast so it's probably different than it was the last time you were here, and if people from the UK or Europe want to come out, there are now direct flights from London (BA and Norwegian), Frankfurt (a budget carrier, I don't remember which---Condor, maybe?), and Toronto (Air Canada). The downside is that it can be pretty hot in late May, it's been here before, and there are lots of other places to do it.

Like I said, all are welcome, but I don't exactly want to stump for it for the reasons in this post and in my post quoted above.

Carry on, as you were, etc.

Anybody know how to set up a poll? Or is that option turned off?

We really need to be making some decisions;

I vote for Toronto, San Diego, Denver in that order.

Would love another Austin trip, but suspect late May will be too hot for us.

I think it's only a tab option when you start a thread.
