Title: National GTG in Chicago this year?
Post by: ColoradoB5 on May 23, 2003, 07:27:06 AM
The Greek posted on CB5 here that Tim Hayes at Liberty wants to host the National GTG this year.  We haven't done any planning on it, so I would totally be up for a summer drive to Chicago!

Let me know what you guys think.  Wendy knows that area really well and could be our tour guide!

Hey folks, I just chatted with Tim and he says it's normally in the high 80's in mid-August in the Chicago area.  Would anyone have a problem with doing this there in the middle of August like last year?  At least we won't have to worry about 100F + temps...

I don't think I would be able to make it since I will be taking a week of for a Cali/Vegas trip.  I think that is a good time though.  Gives people enough time to get in time off requests and plan for the trip.

I'm sure it'll be a blast and I think every RMB5er that can make it should!

Count me out, I'm afraid.  I've already got a couple trips in the works for this summer, including a possible road trip to San Diego.  Another drive to Chicago would just be too much.

Mark -

We are going to try a regional GTG for RMCB5 as well, probably close to the same time.  Hopefully we'll get that figured out soon.

Well, don't worry.  We'll still have our 1st Annual RMCB5 GTG that should be just like the National in every other regard.

We are looking for early September, when the weather cools down just a tad...

Mark, we hope you can make it!

ok Jay or Win or Chas start an official planning thread for our official 1st Annual RMCB5 GTG...

I agree with Chad and Rian's thoughts over on CB5 re: having it in Sept., I'm pretty flexible for times in August.  Bug-In is Aug. 10th, if that makes any difference to anyone...
