Milwaukee Herf O' Excellence 2020

All I have to do is get up that Friday.  But some of you have to buy plane tickets and schedule vacation time.  Knowing that any given weekend will be great for some and bad for others, let's start with June 19-21.  Post your thoughts, and in a week or two, we'll make it official.  Thanks!

    At this time, I'm not scheduled to work that weekend or the next. If I was, I wouldn't.

    I'll be there.

    I'm planning on being in Detroit until the 16th. I could hand around and fly over to MIL on the 19th. Hanging around two week is a bit much. 
    Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.

    Damn decent of you Sir. I'm actually going to Toronto for a RUSH convention but fly into and out of Detroit because it's my hometown. So I'll stay in Detroit and visit old friends. I appreciate the offer brother.
    Of course it all depends on how I'm doing at the time healthwise.

    Before any 1st-timers start booking hotels, let's assume that the veteran MKE-herfers will be booking a house to rent for the weekend.

    19-21 works for me.

    Too short of notice......

    I'll see if I can fit it into the schedule, but next time, give me more advance notice. :D

    Might have been intentional on their part... just saying!

    I'll scope this out once we have a firm date.

    Hoping I can make either weekend. If you're asking us for preference, mine would be the following weekend, 26-28 because I'm 90% certain I'll already be off work that weekend. I probably could be able to schedule off for 19-21 but not as certain. 

    Last year I believe my preference was accommodated at the expense of @CharlieHeis And, if I recall correctly, he almost didn't make it. He did make it but had to drive nonstop long distance after working a full day. I felt bad. I feel bad now expressing a preference.

    Anyone flying into ohare hit me up.  I will probably be hosting the Thursday before again and can pick people up from the airport, and put people up at my house.  Two years ago it got pretty epic.

    If Patrick is hosting Thursday night, I'll stop by after work, but probably won't stay long...

    I'm definitely going to be there Saturday and Sunday, but Thursday and/or Friday are up in the air as of now.

    Pretty sure that's what you said the last time; then like everyone else, slept on a couch.

    Better than driving away from a herf where Patrick's pouring.

    As I stated on the vherf recently when it was brought up, I think that weekend will work better than last year. It's too early to tell for sure, of course. The first weekend would work better but the second weekend should be ok.

    Edit: if you're tallying votes count me as neutral.

    This looks like a great time.  Wish I could crash it.

    I won't know for sure until spring when I have my son's baseball schedule. I should be able you show up 1 day for sure and hopefully the entire weekend.

    That rocks!  I'll start looking at flights and vacation dates.

    That is my family vacation, just like last year. I will hopefully make it Friday for awhile but will have to play that by ear.
