    Default The 2011 Convention will be in Raleigh.

    The TASL group (Triangle/Raleigh) wants to host the 2011 convention in Raleigh. The actual date will be formally set in January but informally it looks to be the end of August. That date seems to always work. We talked about getting a host hotel with a group rate and possibly an organized group dinner.

    John is in charge of the Red Cup.

    I'm in ... I think this would give a lot more people a shot to attend since we're closer to the i95 corridor, particularly the South Carolina members. But maybe some Virginia folks too...

    There are a lot of aspects of the Western Carolina conventions that should be preserved. I'd like to see some posts from William and Carl to get their thoughts on this.
    Thanks,

    Sure, but we only have black tie parties. We used to go to this guy's house every year for Christmas party that was a black tie. One year, he moved into a brand new, huge house in North Raleigh (like 8000 sq ft house). Denny probably knows this guy since he works at the same company. Anyway, this guy had just moved into his house like 4 weeks before the party and it had brand new, white carpeting running through the house. We got there early and Deb was screwing around outside and got into some mud and tracked it through the house. I mean she tracked it through the house, even on the white carpeting. I laughed my butt off.

    I don't have a problem with it hosted in Raleigh.

    I'll have to come in the night before so I can be there "on time" the next day.

    John will have to fly out of Chattanooga Int'l to RDU, lol.

    Great William ! I think the majority of us just stayed at the same hotel that hosted the Red Cup. Nothing to worry about except stumbling up to your room (as long as you remember the room number) ..

    Oh dang, I forgot about John. John, the nearest airport is Albuquerque, NM. It might take a little longer to get here but the drive will give you some time to listen to some books on tape or something.
