Well folks probably should have posted on this a while ago, but I forgot.  The question is this years winter/Chicago herf, move it, keep the same?  Lets figure this out soon so travel plans can be made.

    The voting on the vherf last night was for Las Vegas.
    I would like to host it here as the casino I work at is cigar friendly, but this is a crossroads town not a real city.

    Vegas sounds awesome! I got to see what dates I’m free in the winter. What month we thinking.

    Vegas sounds great, but how about at a different time. Please keep the Chicago Herf in Chcago.

    What's up with this?  Keep it in Chicago and pick a different time for somewhere else?  Not much input here if we wait too long to get this set up it might be too late.  @trident would you mind getting this going if the group wants to keep it in Chicago?

    Chicago is great because most of the people attending can drive.  No one has a crystal ball, but my guess is that it would be a smaller gathering if it was moved, because half the people that usually attend won't fly and stay.  Rooms near Casa de Montecristo are dirt cheap and close by.

    If I could change anything I would improve Casa's ventilation system, and move it to early November.

    Based on the feedback so far in this thread, and the smattering of comments on Vherf, I'd recommend moving forward with a re-run of past years.

    The Chicago herf wouldn't be what it is if it moved elsewhere, that's just a silly thought. Us Arizona folks were kicking around the idea of an Arizona herf in July but we wouldn't do that to friends.

    I am off 1-2 of December, if that works for everybody I will get some tickets.

    Looking at ticket prices seems do-able if I can get the days off

    Colleen is out of town the 2nd but she has been out of town the last two years for this so I can arrange babysitter.  Any time is fine with me, you all decide what's best.

    I thought last year was somewhat dictated by Casa was it not?  Or did we decide and they confirmed?

    Just the good word (thank you Roman) we are welcome at Casa either the first or second weekend in December.  Either one works for me so you all decide and this will be set!

    Can we make this the weekend of the 8th then (I like that day)?  "Any objections speak now or forever hold your peace."

    i have to work the first weekend in December, so if thats the day, there is little chance i can be there.  I would also have to clear the second weekend with the wife and baby, so im about 50/50 for the second weekend.  but, if the first weekend works best for everyone else, don't plan around me

    In case anyone missed it earlier it looks like Randy @dirtdude would be able to make Dec 1-2 but based on how I read his post probably not other dates. He can obviously chime in and say otherwise but didn’t want that to get lost or missed. 

    Hope y’all have have a great time and will miss seeing you all again this year. Looking forward to seeing the pics!

    Better just pick a date and roll with it....or it will be back and forth. Just sayin 
  • PatrickbrickPatrickbrick Lake Zurich IlPosts: 7,271 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I agree, so pick a damn date and lets start the planning.   You going to make it this year?
