Ok, we took the plunge and decided to open this for discussion to see what we can do with us. Some background for those who haven't seen it yet in the 30 Day Thread. With the start of the 4th year for the monthly 30 Day Rule/Focus group, otherwise known as the 30 Day Crew, or 30DC, several of the regulars expressed interest in trying to get together for a meet up. This is an idea I had originally thought of back in 2016 but just sat on it. Well, I say let's do this thing if we can. I put the poll on this to determine which month would be best for the majority of people. Several have already indicated in the 30DC which is best, or which doesn't work. Please vote even if you've already stated your preference. For those who are not regulars at the 30DC, if you would like to be a part of this you are more than welcome. We can make it a TSD meet up. The plan is to hold it in Saint Louis, mainly because of its location in the middle of the country, and also because I can act as coordinator and help pull it all together. BBQ has already been made mandatory (Pappy's perhaps - ranked in the top 3 in America) and early ideas include the option of a baseball game on Saturday. That will depend on the month and day we decided on but we can get into that later. We could also offer that as an option for those who choose. With enough people I'm sure I can get better rates for everyone at a hotel and even a group deal on Cardinals tickets. But, in order to put it all together, we need to decide on the date fairly quickly. It doesn't need to be tomorrow, but I figure in a week we should have that nailed down. Then work on commitments for those planning to attend. Costs for the hotel, ball game, meals, etc. will be the responsibility of each attendee. Wives, kids, also welcome. What do we do for the main event? I'd say we try to get a few vendors to set up shop, bring gear to show off, maybe have a seminar or two from some of the experts on here, and basically get to know one another in real life! Ok. This thread is open. A couple of rules: 1. Respect everyone's opinions. 2. If you disagree with an idea feel free to say so, but please have a reason. 3. If you have a suggestion, by all means throw it out here. 4. Remember, this is a place where we regularly discuss a lot of things and do so without animosity. Let's keep it that way. 5. I wish we could end up with a date that everyone can attend, but we know that's impossible. Hey, if this one works well who knows...maybe another one at another time to give everyone another chance. One final note - if we don't want to go to a game, that's a perfectly fine option as well. I've listed the dates the Cards are playing just as an option in planning if that matters.
