Joe Rogo in a dress? Boy, I don't think I'd want to see that.

I want good Roadfood, darn it.  Going to be hard to beat the two places we went to in Mobile.


I absolutely agree.

Or, he can wear my dress........and I will wear a shirt.

 
Hey, wait a darn minute!
 
I have an extensive collection of Hawaiian Shirts.  You see, my lifelong ambition is to be a beach bum.  The only progress I have made towards this goal are the shirts.

Keep in mind if the proposed city is Jacksonville that would of course include St Augustine which is a short half hour away. The Roadfood listings for St Augustine is  multifarious

If the Jacksonville area is so great why does the St. Johns keep flowing out to sea?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the Glee Club this year.  That will be the week that Cousin Johnny and I are in Arizona for our annual trip.  Count us back in for Glee Club 2015!

Things are iffy for us, as well, I am scheduled for another tumor operation the first week of February. If recovery is like my previous  cancer removal, I will not be going anywhere in February.
 
Dale can you help folks with housing? Your choices in the past have been both reasonable and comfortable. I urge the group to continue the tradition of the President's Day Weekend.
 
An alternative has been suggested that we merge the usual Glee Club Hawaiian Shirt Festival with the Cinncinati Chili Crawl in April???   I need to know how you all feel about that before considering it seriously.

Al,
 
Let's all reconvene after Thanksgiving to decide  what we're going to do. Like we have in the past, perhaps we can get some of us on board to finalize what and where. Al, even though you're still "iffy" about attending I still want you on board with the decision planning.

Al, we wouldn't object to folding it into the chili crawl. Especially if that's when you could make it.

I'll be eagerly awaiting a decision!  February down South is good for me - and I could probably do April in Cincy.  Until we know something, enjoy your turkey!

Per our bylaws, I believe there will be a quorum of THE CONTINGENT in Cincinnati in April. I don't think the GLEE CLUB and THE CONTINGENT have ever been in such close proximity. This event could be epic.

Given that buffetbuster and mayor al likely cannot make the "First Coast" of Florida this year, and others seem to have some opposition to that locale, why don't we just table that destination until February 2015? I know wanderingjew has been excited about north Florida, as have some others, but if it's not going to work out for some key players, why don't we move it to a time when it could work out for everyone?
 
I know one of the reasons that I pushed hard for north Florida is because it is very easy for me to pull off - given that I usually have to work on that Friday. Well, this year, that schedule got gummed up anyway. My usual Friday commitment is now the Friday following Presidents' Day weekend; and, my regular April trip to Texas got moved to Feb 10-13...so, I would have to fly into Jacksonville/Savannah or wherever else we choose to go...just like any other year, anyway.
 
So, the reality for me is that I can make pretty much anywhere in February. Bushie Memorial Trip to Texas, anyone? However, not that this should deter anyone else, but I likely cannot make the Cincy chili crawl in April.

Quite frankly, this is depressing.  BB and The Mayor is apparently out.  I did not make the trip to Mobile last year due to the fact I was in the hospital.  Our whole group is falling apart.

Although I would be dissapointed if we don't do Jacksonville, above all, I'm all for whatever the group decides to do.
It would not be the same without some  of the original Glee Club Members in attendance., and although I believe Charleston was a favorite of many back in 2010, since none of the original Glee Club members were there,  it didn't sit right with me at all. To date, it was my least favorite Glee Club gathering.
 
Ironically TTM mentioned Texas for a Bushie memorial, after Bushie's passing, I mentioned to Sandra that I wonder if we would consider something like that in 2014 or 2015, if so. I'm all for it!
 
Other than the first weekend in April when Sandra and I will be in DC visiting her friends, and the weekend of May 17 when we will be in Charlotte for my cousin's wedding, I'm wide open

The idea of a Bushie Memorial Glee Club event in 2015 is wonderful. We're in. And combining the Glee Club with the Cincinnati Chili Crawl -- with the opportunity for the Mayor to be there -- works for us.

Feasibly we could still do the Glee Club separately  to accommodate those who can't do the Chili Crawl. A final decision should come forth within the next couple of weeks.

I'm really looking forward to a Feb. trip someplace warm. Even if it isn't the official Glee Club trip.

I'm definitely planning on making Cincy in April as well.

C'mon folks lets do both!

I guess the Glee Club 2014 is DOA. Darn! I was looking for some warm weather, even if it's just a couple days.

Mike, it looks like I will be in Texas that weekend. If you want to come on down, I am sure we could find some things to do in and around Dallas and/or Austin.

With Al and TTM out, it appears that after a long run, it is out but not dead, YET.
I was looking forward to Savannah and Charleston but it is not to be.  I may attend the event in Cincy but a total chili agenda is not totally appealing although it appears that the attendance will be huge.

I am very hopeful that we will pick back up the Glee Club tradition in 2015.  This year just didn't work for me.

Say, why don't you come up to Cincinnati? lleechef and I, and everyone else, would love to see you again. And you know, you can't get Cincinnati chili in Alabama.

Hey Michael!  Thanks.  I really should give that trip some thought.  I haven't had Cincinnati chili in many years!  And I haven't had a serving of Roadfood company in a long time either!

I have been to a couple of these.  They are always held on Presidents Day, which is when the tradition began.
 
I have a suggestion, with a sprinkle of humor in it, why don't we change Presidents?  Instead of Washington and Lincoln's birthday, let's change it to a President's birthday who was also a hefty eater.  Let's have it on William Howard Taft's birthday (September 15) or Grover Cleveland (March 18).  As I see it, we would avoid the cold and have greater numbers--as well as appropriate symbolism.

Well, in September you're into college and NFL games, and come March it's the NCAA tournament.
