    I'm for a Sept date. The advantage of starting on Labor Day weekend is it's a 4 day work week. That could make a difference for those of us who are not retired.

    Labor day week seams to be working pretty well. I vote for keeping it as is.

    I don't know how to accurately do it but a check on many other rallies may be going on in the area at the same time would be a good idea.We could end up with more conflicts with room availability and not as peaceful a time if we mess with it.Also if we seriously consider a date change a check with the hotel about that date before we finalize our plans would be needed.

    I think the current date is pretty good and we do get a great rate, temps are great, but the issue that a couple of folks have mentioned is that it is in the peak of hurricane season and we have been affected by that 2 or three years recently. That's one reason the attendance is low.

    True because the week after our normal date is the Thunder in the Valley Rally every year...

    hurricane season is especially troubling and unpredictable for all Florida or East coast folks. The cancellations reflected this point.

    As for the temps, I have been to Maggie Valley over the last 10 years and the daytime/nightime temps seem cooler to me in June, July and early August. The top of the Blue Ridge was 48 degrees a few times. There was also less heavy afternoon thunderstorm activity.

    As for the hotel rates being a determining factor of the event date, we could negotiate some tentative rates and see where they fall once we have a consensus on some dates.

Sometimes the early spring dates are full of chances for rain. My vote would be to keep it the same or perhaps one week later. Thanks,

    TwoBye makes a good point, I'm down with that.

    I'm good with the current dates. I have rain gear for the ride home

    From now on I will probably won't stay at BW since I will be living in my toy hauler. However, if something happens to that, I would need a room at the Inn..
