I have decided to take charge and repeat last years gathering at the cottages in Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling Virginia. This is 30 miles outside of Washington, DC, which is a beautiful place to visit in September when the weather has cooled a bit. We had a small group last year, but it was delightful all the same. I would like to get an idea of how many people would be interested in participating at the gathering this year? I would say it would either be the weekend of Sept 15th,16th,17th or the following which would be Sept 22nd,23rd,24th. If you are interested please E-mail me at: Happyfouru@aol.com and I will get back to you with more details as soon as I have a head count. Please put Algonkian Regional Park in the subject line. Thanks all, and I hope to hear from you

I'd love to join! BUT, the kids will have started school and it's WAY to far for me to go.

Hi all, being this is in the beginning stages of planning I just wanted to give option here if anyone might have a better date in mind. I went with September cause it's cooler and that's when we did it last year. I was thinking that even the weekend of Sept 8th, 9th, 10th would be possible. It is also possible to rent these cottages for a week if someone wanted to stay longer, these are just idea's flying around, just looking for the best way to please all. Please feel free to throw any idea's you might have here too, and we'll play around with them.

Well, I just found out not much playing with dates can be done, actually my choices are out. The weekend they have available right now is for August 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th. Check in is 4pm on the 25th which is a Friday and check out is on the 28th at 11am which is Monday. Other than this date they said the next available is in October.

I canít make it this year   but if you decide to make this an annual event Iíll do my best to make the next one.

That is as long as you donít mind a British Fool tagging along!


 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

*sigh* September prolly would have been do-able...August just is not. We have found a lovely super old building to buy in a neighboring town. To move our shop and selves into (it's huge w/ upstairs apt.) Our business move date would be Aug 1 ish and me leaving hubby all alone there whilst I galavant off to DC would prolly send him into a fit of misery! Barring all other obstcales, count me in next year!

I could probably do August, but October is also an interesting month. Different if nothing else. Geesh..I hope others will soon see their way into trying for this meeting again. LOL! If not then I guess I'll be attending a Non Meeting.. LOL!!

At this point October would have to be the month to look at, but if anyone else has idea's of a place that would be better to gather that's fine too. I saw a thread in suggestions that had some grand idea's of places that would be fun.

Hmmmmm... let's see....  California to the east coast, about 3000 miles, the average human walks about 4 miles per hour, 3000 divided by for is... damn, where is my calculator... hold on...   Ah! 750 hours!

Now, if I walk 8 hours per day it would only take me 93.75 days (let's just say 94), 94 days to get there, so if I left my house two weeks ago, I should be able to make it in Time!  ALL RIGHT!   Wait a second....  damn...

Just put me down as wishing I could be there and promise to read one of my works and spend a few moments bashing me over a bottle of something intoxicating..

*stomping feet* NOBODY WANTS TO PLAAAAYYY!! WWHHAAAAAA!!! I still think we should find out who can POSSIBLY be there, and settle on a location that is sort of halfway for everyone. MEET IN THE MIDDLE!! Of where?? I dunno...I know..I know..Why am I opening my "mouth" if I don't have any creative or constructive input. I do think October is still different and interesting though.

Er....did I hear you say "halo" Temptress?     Ahehehe, somehow that strikes me as FUNNY!  Now as far as October, I'm still game!  As far as WHERE, I say make us a list of who all has emailed you so far, and if we have to, we can pick a new place like you said.  Who all is going?  So far, I see Gloria, me, Temptress and Sea!  ROFL  That means there's just more Beer for us!  *burp*  Uh...I meant Mt. Dew....

Oregon would be a good idea!  I could walk there in a few days....

We should do something really interesting and  have a gathering in the exact center of the country (that would mean pitching a tent in the middle of a pasture or a cornfield wouldn't it?)
