    Since Karen and I will probably not be able to go to the big Cabo shindig this summer I was wondering about the possibility of a big meetup for us people in this area. Seems to me that NYC would be a nice central location for quite a few people to get to from quite a few states.

    What I was thinking was a weekend afternoon sometime this summer in NYC or wherever else would work for the most people. For us up here in Albany NYC, Boston, Hartford or a bunch of other places are within a decent drive away. Even Philly would be doable for us. Alas, it's not all about us though, so we would travel anywhere within reason to meet a bunch of you ladies.

    So what does everyone think? Summer is not too terribly far off and the sooner a date gets set, the more likely it is that people can plan in advance for it. I would be more than happy to take the reigns in planning and organizing everything. It would be so nice to meet a lot of you in person and have us all spend the afternoon together.

    If there is already something like this in the works I apologize. I looked around and did not see anything.

    Tentative Date: June 7th 2008 (open to suggestions otherwise)

    Tentative Place: NYC (once again open to suggestions once more people get on board)

        we can drive up to NYC, but it can be so busy and expensive my DH would rather do Philly if that's possible. Of course after June 15 we won't know how much traveling we can really do.

            i'm in, and i'm sure i can convince fi to come too (tho it may involve me doing naked jumping jacks...)
            pa, nj, or ny are ok.

              Awesome! Looks like we may have a party in the planning. Once more people chime in we can start talking location and date and all that.

                Oooh. Maybe I can come to this. I might have to come stag though because DH would probably not be easy to convince to come.

                  I'm in! Obviously Philly is easier, but I could do NY too.

                    Hey if you do NY Everton and I could make it, Everton's dad is in NY and we travel to see him a couple of times a year. I don't know how far Philly is from us, I know it takes us about 8 hours to drive to NY.
