Still Moving Forward.

I second (or third) the notion expressed in the comments earlier about not wanting to let this die out. So, to that end -- speak up, people!

I guess the first question we need to answer is when to get together. It seems that we've narrowed it down to either Labor Day weekend or Columbus Day weekend. Does anyone want to speak up for one or the other? Pros and cons? Plusses or minuses? Yings or yangs? (As opposed to YingYang, unless he chooses to join us.)

Personally, I'd prefer Labor Day, since I don't get Columbus Day off at work. (Sure, it's no problem for me to take a vacation day that day, but having the CapFest on Labor Day means I don't have to dip into my vacation time.) But I can easily do either if need be.

The next question would be, do we want to make this a two-day or a three-day affair (not counting travel days on either side for those of you coming from a distance)? We could go Saturday/Sunday, or Sunday/Monday, or Saturday/Sunday/Monday, or Friday/Saturday/Sunday (or you can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay....)

In other news, it looks like my new survey site is something of a bust. Instead of me trying to find another one, maybe we can just have a lively dialogue in the comments?

Finally, lest you think we're all business around here, I'll leave you with this picture of a tiny monkey:

This Here's a Survey Test.

Moving Forward.

Well, it looks like I'm going to have to close the two polls below. It's not just because the responses have slowed down, but also because the poll service I signed up for neglected to mention that they weren't really a free service after all, but only offered one-month free trials.

Oops. Whatever.

Anyway, it provides as good an excuse as any to move ahead and try to do some more planning. It looks like Labor Day weekend is the time most people can get together, with Columbus Day weekend close behind. Let's get a discussion going in the comments about which weekend is better for everyone. If we can nail down a date that will help those who need to make travel/vacation plans well in advance.

And expect more polls here soon. And maybe this time they won't disappear after a month.

What Should We Do?

Another poll with some suggested activities. This list is by no means exhaustive, of course -- add more in the comments!

Let's Pick a Date!

Here's a poll to help pick a weekend to get together. (This is the first time I've used this, so I hope it works okay.) Feel free to elaborate in the comments section:


Some of us cappers are planning a fall 2008 get-together in the Los Angeles area, so this seemed like a convenient way to get everyone on the same cyber-page and make some plans. If you'd like to join us, feel free to speak up in the comments!
