I am always interested but I don't know my schedule in time to commit until later.

Now that I have a boat this year I’d be down to attempt it.

Any is fine aside from Sunday the 6th, I’d have to be all the way home by 6pm that day. Seems unlikely.

Looking at it maybe I could do the 6th. This is only an hour drive away, looks like the trip would be done by 3 pm at latest if the schedule stays the same.

If I were going, I would vote for the 2nd weekend as I would be off work (and kids off school) for the following Monday. (Columbus Day).

But, right now, I doubt we’ll come up this year.

I’m not sure. When we went 2 years ago, it seems like we were back a lot closer to 5 if I remember right. Lunch took a long time with so many of us, and there was a decent wait for those that got gas after lunch. I’ve only been once, though. @OperationROL and @buckbuck may remember better.

The Saturday dates work best for me but I could probably make the Sunday dates work.

Let's aim for the 12th. Seems like that would work best for everyone.
