Atlanta / SE DUers
rbnyc has suggested having regional gatherings as a way to get together and remember Khephra. We need to do this - it's been too long for those of us who've done gatherings before, and there are lot of folks we haven't yet met.

When do we want to do this? I'm probably going to be largely unavailable after early March, but I can still help plan it if it needs to be later. We should talk about where, too. Manuel's seems the obvious choice to me, especially if we get a good crowd.

So, sound off! Who can come and when?

3. We tried to have Atlanta get-togethers before
but they seemed to fall apart.
It's a good idea, but I won't be in the SE after the end of the month. Sorry.

5. Really?
It seemed there were a couple that were planned-one in the spring and one in the summer-that just didn't happen in the long run. however, maybe I missed the other ones...
Certainly, I hope that one can get set up!

9. Great pix, Uly
Makes me really regret having missed the previous ones -

And we haven't been back to ATL in several years so, of course, dear SO would do *anything* for a Road Trip~

I'm in- as long as the weather doesn't turn bad, and no Tae Kwon Do tournaments interfere.

8. Makes me wish I still lived in Atlanta
There are a lot of great DUers down there, not the least of whom are Uly and Catwoman. It'd be great to meet you all. But I'll just have to be there in spirit only.

23. In SC,
if you plan the gathering for a weekend, I can probably make it. You will also have to provide some directions as I do not know my way around Atlanta very well.

25. I think we're getting a good sized group.
RubyDuby responded in another forum, and Son of Strom sounds positive. :evilgrin:

Any thoughts as to what weekend? I'm thinking mid- to late February, but that's me. If we get out of towners, they'll need to make travel plans...

I'll tell Kevin about it this evening, and we'll see what we can do. It can't be too soon, because we have some prior commitments. I've been dying to make it to a gathering anyway, and I can't think of a better reason than paying tribute to a beloved DUer.

32. Well
The next two weeks are probably off. There is also the matter of when Kevin can get time off. I'll have him look at the calender tomorrow and see when he might possibly have some time off. I'm thinking early to mid February might be the best for us.

Uly: We would love to come over for a Saturday night ho-down. I saw your note that you had gotten my private message. There are quite a few folks at the SC forum that I didn't see here; if you're interested in boosting attendance you can post it there. As far as dates, I couldn't do Jan 29/30, but any other date in Feb or March looks OK now.
