Cat and I would be willing to host Montreal but I want to leave the frickin country fer once. BTW we could do it in some ski region at the heart of winter for those who would be interested in tasting rrrrealll cold.

Sorry Krisk about Vegas, I was the one who apparently nixed it because I wouldn't like the place at all; I don't gamble and watch shows, I'm more of a cultural buff and prefer museums. If the vote is Vegas I'll go but not for a full week.
HAlo! I know im late to the party,... I live in NY and I would be beyond thrilled to help in organizing everything here. I also wouldnt mind gogin to a nice and warm climate? How do the bahamas sound? I also liked the cruise idea. It is easier but it is more expensive, since um ::cough cough: the a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aH-alcohol is overpriced.

Okay, if we get consensus on date and site, I offer my help in last minute preparations by coming over in advance during the week preceding the MRWM.

What we need for cities to be contenders in hosting the event is a series of specific criteria.

Convention centers catering to lodging, feeding and not least, conference rooms. Find prices for three numbers of attendees. 50, 75 and 100 participants. Below 50 there will be no event.

Find activities for three days with their costs. Remember that most people here are monetarily challenged, this is why we'll have the event so far in the future, so we get time enough to scrounge for it.

Find an army of volunteers, of which I am.

Then submit your city for candidacy.

Right now we're just sounding thing out to see where the majority of participants would like to gather.

I nominate Birmingham, Alabama. Hotels are cheap, because there is nothing interesting to do, unless you are a shopper. Convention areas abound at most of these reasonably priced hotels.

I spent 3 weeks in Birmingham, Alabama and wasn't bored a single minute!! (ok, I admit, I was quite busy looking up english words in my dictionary and trying to drive not faster than 50 mph on the streets )

I'm surprised that you could find some of our lingo in a dictionary!

It is down to 50 MPH almost to my house now. Just before my exit, you pass the sign saying "End Construction" (a good idea) and it pops back up to 70 MPH and then I exit. Sort of like getting a good running start for the end of the commute!
