    If you guys want the poll reset or restarted we can do that. Or you can just make an 'executive decision', given the low number of votes.

    I'm indifferent to the location, and plan to be there wherever it is held.

    I voted for Orchard but really want to see the Wise .... there is a small chance I will get to go and I will just focus on the small chance.
    I have been so impressed with the kindness and fellowship of HF members that I have met. Truly special and spiritual. Really. We are fortunate.

    I'm a little confused,why is the poll closing for a hang that is still over two months away? I'm sure some people aren't even sure if they can make it yet and don't want to influence the poll until they are sure. Not a big deal, just curious.

    Yea, that's all ME. Partly a ploy to get responses, the last few times it took a while to figure out what all were bringing, and the date poll was (at the time) nearly tied, now it is a "dead heat" at 14 all and partly (for both) so it would give people time to sort out if they can go, I would need at least 60 days notice to get off work.

    I am sorry for the furor this caused, but it looks like my "Ploy" has worked. I do think you are right, closing either poll today would be unfair and unnecessary!!! A decision needs to be made soon though, & in my defense, in past years about 2 months prior the polls have closed. Yea, no excuse for giving only 4 days notice. How about 10/31 for both?

    Sorry to all this upset. I do sometimes act / speak with minimal thought, but this time my heart was in the right place. If I make it down, you can flog me then!

    I've never been to any of the choices other than Wise...kinda hard for people who haven't been to all the choices to choose one over the others.

    I am hoping we solidify the date soon. The Winter Mahha is on the 30th and that make for some hard choices. I really don't care about where it is though. After a 10 hour drive who cares if it is 10 mile south or north as long as there are trees and brats.

    Dutch is right. There are a lot of people that are going to travel for this. Keeping the date uncertain for much longer is not fair, and will only harm attendance.

    I think he meant the poll in the date thread.
