    the sooner we narrow it down, the sooner everyone will be able to make sure they can take the day off work if needed.

    Is late July or Late August good for most people? That'll narrow it down to 4-6 saturdays, few enough for a poll if everyone is happy with that.

    That's fine with me.
    My bosses are going to start scheduling July soon. ;)

    late July...shouldn't be a problem. August...you're flirting with Labor Day and kids going back to college (which in Candii's case would help)

    Just gimme a date kids!

    The only problem is I think Candii and Debbie might not be able to make it unless it is at the end of August?

    That was my reasoning too, Angel. Candace said they should be back by August 28th.

    I couldn't go if it's at the end of August....band camp.

    That late in the summer is going to get complicated...kids are heading back to school, some have things like band-camp, and many families take end of the summer vacations.

    Is late July out of the question...or early August?

    Late July sounds best. Even for me. I need to know soon too so I don't schedule anthing medical-wise on the day.

    :p to Brian. ;) :D

    Will Candii and Debbie be in Cleveland for the summer? If we did it in late July then they could travel down with the rest of you. Is that a possibility?

    We've worked out driving arrangments before, no problem!

    How soon can we get a definate on the date?

    I think the end of July is sounding like a plan. The best thing to do is probably have the CR's put a poll on both Cleveland/Cincinnati and Columbus boards giving the last two Saturdays of July and have people vote to narrow it down. What do you think?

    Late July shouldn't be a problem for me. How do Dayton and Toledo feel about it?

    The date for the All Ohio Picnic is being voted on now on the Cincinnati Board (since it's going to be in Cincy this time). Come on over and vote!

    One poll will be a little easier to deal with.

    EDIT by Krash: link to the Cincy poll!

    I voted for July 31st...because any later in the summer and everyone will have scedule conflicts with school/work/vacation.

    And Candii...don't worry, we'll get you a ride to Cincy for this (hope you remember the way) ;)

    I'm from Dayton and we talked yesterday at our meeting about the cookout. I think the 31st was the date we were all leaning toward, but definitely confirm that with the others, esp. our CR! Hope this helps! :)

    I think most of us thinks that July is the best time... at least that's my opinion!

    July 31st sounds like a very good idea! When you guys have details on location/directions...let us know.

    And maybe we should think about extending the invitiation to OHIO GARRISON? Many of them live in the area...and would welcome a chance to hang out with us again (anyone who was at Zahn knows they were a great bunch of people)

    Yes! That would be great. :D Those guys are fun.

    I can't see them taking much part in the lightsaber duels, though. :p
    More likely to do an Indian Jones and just shoot at us. :p

    Do you think lightsabers can deflect SUPER-SOAKERS :)

    So who's interested in going to Dayton?

    All-Ohio - Dayton July 31st (confirmed):

    If you use swimming noodle sabers... they may not deflect water, but they'll sure absorb it! ;)

    Is this date set?
    When it is, I can then ask for that weekend off and add my name to the list. ;)

    I don't know if I can picture Harrison Ford wearing a feathered war bonnet instead of his fedora :p

    Dayton would be more than happy to host the get together on July 31st. I noticed earlier in the thread the Ohio Garrision may attend as well, I'm sure they'll remember me from the Zahn event...I won the auction for the huge replica of the cover of the book and there is a great pic of me with them on their website. I look forward to meeting all of you at the picnic. :)
