West TN bus gathering
« on: April 21, 2012, 01:47:45 PM »
OK this thrown out there way back when that we were gonna have another busnut gathering.

Well "The Don" & I have been trying to decide the best dates.

He is coming from CA. So we kinda set the dates according to when he can make it.
We are leaning heavily towards Aug. 24,25,26.
But if it were more convienent for more people to do it Labor day weekend Aug 31, Sept. 1, & 2.

So pipe up an let us know what ya think.

John that would be great!

Of course anyone wanting to show up early or stay late is welcome too!

With the charter bus biz there is less chance of buses coming and going in the middle of the night during the Aug. 24-27th weekend, but anything is possible.

I know for a fact that several will be coming & going on labor day weekend.

I personally lean to the Aug 24-27 dates because our business is always dead in Aug.
And I already have trips booked on labor day weekend.

But we are flexible and will adjust according to a majority vote!
Hint, hint, wink, wink !

Folks I need your input here!

BK,
 I think the 24- 27 dates would be better for me.

Thanks,
Ken

Just a bump. Nailed down a date yet? Uncle Ned may have to take a northern route to keep Huggy cool.

If I managed to make it down I would rather do labor day weekend for vacation reasons.  I'm running out of vacation in part because I am going to Bendix Air Brake school the first full week of June in Chicago.

Well Now,

It looks as though we are getting specific, both on dates and parking.

The 24 thru 27 dates get my vote as does my previous parking position. 

Oh wait, you've moved?

Well it was almost gonna be the 24th -26th dates, but now there is SOME interest in Labor day weekend.

I guess we'll see if anyone else chimes up before making it final!
