I could feasibly do both the PRF thing and NYCon, if people are going to go to the barbecue. Megabus to Chicago can be obtained for hella cheap from Minneapolis.

Tommy, does going to the PRF BBQ make any sense if you don't post on the PRF? I lurk but I never felt quite comfortable enough to post there.

Alright kids, there has been hella debate about this in meebo today. So here's the deal.

Currently the poll sits at 23 for NYC and 14 for San Francisco. And five whiny people that want another city. I would say that 23-14 is a pretty sizeable victory, which means that NYC has come out on top. What I propose, as backed by a few people in Meebo, is that we go ahead and decide to do NYC next year (2010) and let the runner up, San Francisco, be the location for the year after (2011). As it stands, there are a ton of people in New England/East Coast, the midwest, eastern Canada, and Europe that want to attend a con, so New York makes the most sense for next year, given the amount of time to save money. And if we decide right now that 2011 will be San Francisco, anyone that thinks they might want to attend will know to start saving for that as well, so maybe a few Europeans can make a west coast meet-up.

Now, if anyone has strong feelings against this decision and good reasons to back up these feelings, please share. We can talk it over if necessary but really, this seems like the best decision.

Go team go!

i agree with liz that a new york meetup in 2010 and a san francisco meetup in 2011 is probably the best decision as it seems to have the most support from the most people. new york won't be very pricey for me and even though san francisco will be, it's definitely feasible if i have almost two years to put aside funds for it and i think it could be for a lot of other forumites on the east coast as well.

I'm so glad you guys finally worked this out! Not that I can come to either of them (although... I have family in San Fransisco... hmm, I'll have to think about that one).

Alright guys, since we've decided on a location (no one seems to be putting up a fight), should we start working on dates for this? I know people are going to want to start watching airfare prices to get a good deal, so we should really work things out a bit in advance.

Oh yes, dates please. That would help me immensely. I've got a bit of wiggle room but any earlier than mid-July is very much pushing it for me.

Just so you know, QC, my planning for the first three months of my American trip is kind of hinging on the dates and details of NYCon, e.g; The Lady and I were tentatively planning to do the west coast first, but that has been changed based on the confirmation of NY as the location.

Basically, having a date for NYCon to work with will allow us to lock down a goodly amount of other details for our larger year-or-more-long North American adventure.

No pressure or anything.

(actually it's not really. We were always going to do both coasts, the order wasn't super important.)

the best way to do this is probably, like the last two cons, to just have the people who have commitments of some kind between may and september 2010 list out the dates they can't make it and then we'll start the process of finding a gap somewhere in between that works for everybody. i'm pretty much good to go anytime next summer except for september and most likely the last week of august too.

Must be before August 14th. I would say early June, but I will be in Australia, so not paying for Australia is better than not paying for New York.

I think we need to avoid June because a fair amount of people will still be in school then, unless we have it towards the end like we did with Tronnocon. The same applies to August, a lot of us will be headed back to school mid-month and later. So basically our window is mid-June to mid-August.

The only conflicts I know about right now would be work, but as soon as we set the dates I can ask for the time off.

Started a separate thread for discussing dates. Gotta keep things nice and neat.
