So when deciding where Wenchcon was gonna be this year, there were many votes for Washington D.C.

Alas, it did not end up there. But that doesn't mean we can't still party in D.C. like it's...2005...er...yeah!

So. Summercon. Washington D.C. Dancing, shows, museums, monuments, great public transportation system, tons of hotels, and much much more.

Who's in, who's interested?

And let's narrow it down by months first. June, July, or August?

Golly, that was fast. (we were just talking about this on IM, like, SECONDS ago...).

I think it's a good idea, though I'm not sure when I'd be able to go, or if. But it sounds like fun.

I think me and Kira would probably be able to make it whenever. Or atleast any of those months. Thursday-Saturday being the best days.

Just so you know, DallasCon is Memorial Day Weekend, you might want to space it a bit from that.

I doubt we'd be getting that much crossover with people attending a DallasCon.

Hmm...my vote is the end of July, [Smile] , but it is questionable if I could make it. I'm supposed to be saving to go to Spain.

I'm going to be in DC the first week of july, but wouldn't be able to come to this, I wonder if I can justify another trip to DC this summer. It isn't really likely, but if someone else from bloomington is going, I might also.

Hmm, now there's somewhere I'd actually have a chance of being allowed to go... If I'm not doing an internship in CA or FL, I'm totally interested.

Don't think I'd be able to make it unless it was in May or very late August.

On another note: it would be great to schedule it sometime during the Folklife Festival. Definitely my favorite DC summer event.

Possibly. We could roadtrip down from New England, certainly.

It'll depend on Nathan's vacation time.

No idea if I will actually be able to go. But just in case I can, I vote for mid-July or late August. (NOT a weekend between July 24th and August 15th.)

August is sounding pretty good.

The hotels around D.C. are cheaper in August because congress is out.

I vote for August. Only because I probably won't have much vacation time before then, and if I'm going to DC, I have to visit my mom.

Early August. Please. We'll likely be moving out of our house, and it will be hard to find time anyway. But the later it gets the harder it will get.

I'll be there in May (yep - before DallasCon) but I will get to see you in Texas, so that is probably good enough.

Not sure how many activities I could cram into my four days in D.C. anyway...

I'm in. Anytime this summer is good for me. DC is practically "just down the road". Ok, 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic, but that's nothing, really.

The first two weekends in August are bad for me.

I don't suppose the last weekend in July (July 30-31) is doable? That would still be two months after DallasCon . . .

No, don't do those... that's probably when the performances of the kids' musical I'm working at are. They're always at the end of the month. And I can't miss them.

Just don't make it the weekend of August 19th, please, JenniK has an audition with Disney that weekend. If it is earlier than that, we MIGHT be able to swing it, although it will be tight.

mack, the train takes even less time from here in Springfield to DC, and sometimes there are good rates. I took a train to DC once...actually it was all the way to Ft. Sam in TX.....and it was great. No parking, no driving, and a booze car! [Big Grin]

I'd be interested, but I cannot say one way or the other, depends on internship stuff.

So don't count me in, but don't count me out.

He's probably at school. The only reason I was in town was because I happened to have a rugby tournament there last weekend.

I'm interested. So far, only July 8-12 is bad, but I will be selling my house in June and actually moving out in August. I won't know the move-out date until June 10 or so, so particular weekends will be up in the air until then.

If we want to do this, it's gonna have to be mid or late july if I'm organizing the bulk of it, since I'll most likely be in Israel for a year starting at the very beginning of August.

Raise your hand if you can do it sometime between July 15th and July 25th.
