JUOTA 2020 Charleston weekend of 23-25th May

Postby The Fish » 09 Dec 2019, 10:57

Well it's been too long since we did this so let's make it happen.

Doubtless some will moan about lack of discussions regarding venue but where has that got us in previous years ? Following three years of nothing happening Martin tried to resurrect this last year and with all the discussions and absolutely no decision making, by the time I tried to rescue the situtation by calling it for San Diego, everyone else had made other plans.

So discussing this with Martin on Saturday and agreeing how we both wanted it to happen, I mentioned Charleston as somewhere I was keen to visit, and he said that worked for him. The clincher was that Snowdog in attendance with his wife, was also keen as she is from the area and has relatives there, and so they were on board. So with Me, Del, Claudia, Martin and Denise it's a quorum, so we're pitching this as we will be in Charleston for Memorial day weekend and we'd love as many as possible to join us.

Really hope most of the "usual suspects" can make this but of course, and I can't stress this enough, ALL are welcome. Let's see some first timers.

I'm already excited ** sings ** In my mind I'm going to Carolina.......

We'll try. I have a few friends now in NORTH Carolina, so Greensboro would be higher on the agenda for me, but maybe both?

Pillowz might also be sent to Nashville for work at some point, so that might play into it too.

Anyway, an interested definite maybe.

I acknowledge this and will seriously explore the possibility.
Seeing people in NYC in September was delightful. I love our tradition of gathering and exploring together.

This is a great idea but unless we win the lottery between now and then (which is unlikely), then we won’t be able to make it. We’ll be in the UK and Europe in a matter of weeks and are scheduled to return for family stuff at the end of May. Between now and then we’ve got a trip out of state for our anniversary and we expect to have multiple visitors from the UK in the meantime. So at least you know you can get away with a JUOTA free of any of Minnie’s Death Marches. Party on and take lots of pictures!

I should be able to make this, unless work kicks up something fierce. It's only about a four hour drive.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

The closest other major airports are in Charlotte and Atlanta and both are significant drives. Might as well go for Charleston unless you want to do some Deep South touring!

I don’t think you can fly to Atlanta from Manchester, so if we have to go via Heathrow we may as well fly direct.

I’ve flown from Atlanta to Manchester but it’s been a few years.

Well that's why you missed last year when I tried to get behind San Diego, so I'm guessing it's the same time every year.

I've booked flight, so I'll be going for sure even if it's only me !
