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

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.

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.

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 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.

Hi guys,
Since we are halfway finished with 2014, I think it might be a good time to start brainstorming for the Glee Club meeting in 2015.  The sooner we purchase our airfare the cheaper it will be.  Where would everyone like to go?  One silly question: is this open to everyone or do you have to be invited into the group to participate?  Thanks in advance.

The first of these gatherings to be so-named was in Feb. of 2004 when Pogophile organized an overnight and one day tour of the Whole-Hog BBQ area between Nashville and Memphis. As a result of that focused study the group--over the years-- has used the President's Day Weekend or close to it to renew the activity, and has tried to avoid major Winter weather conflicts...not always successfully.
 
Since most of the participants are located in the East or Great Lakes area the choice of locations has been in the warmer areas near to them.. Mobile, AL and Charleston Have done us well, as did Nashville and Memphis. Louisville/Owensboro was interesting but weather made it a rough trip for some. That's why we have been reluctant to suggest St Louis or any other city further into the WINTER zone for a February visit.
 
 Moving it out West we might get a break in the weather, but the travel costs and time go up, especially for the non-flyers, so we have not considered a So-Cal or AZ meeting for this group.... However I did attend a fine session in SoCal with Lisa and ET and Red Patti and Big Glen in 2004 BEFORE the first Glee Club meeting. There is no reason why the Western folks cannot organize a western chapter and do some fine exploring of locales "Out Yonder" with FBM and ED and all of Y'all doing the Freeway Food Fights to meet in Palm Springs or Bakersfield ?? I think there are a lot of sub-groups who enjoy getting together already and hope they will report in on their activities.
