I'm kid-free July 4th weekend, but not the one afterwards.
I will bear that in mind, but if it ends up having to be the following weekend, the kid can come, too. Amy might be here then - we haven't solidified summer plans ourselves yet.
Britt's tricky to travel with, but we'll see how things shake out.
For a lot of people that day is their holiday day for the 4th. And the thing I have in mind is not available on the 4th, as far as I've been able to ascertain so far.
Ack! The second question does not allow for multiple selections! I chose July 3rd with no availability on the 4th but I could also participate on the weekend.
Darn, I tried to cover everything. My assumption was that the July 4 picnic would not be mandatory, only something so that people who were coming out of town would know that they wouldn't be stuck with no activity that day.
Somehow this year's holiday and weekend schedule is a mess. I work the Memorial Day, 4th of July AND Labor Day weekends, in addition I am actually *supposed* to work Memorial and Labor day. My summer is toast.
Good grief! Who did YOU piss off???
Whatever we decide, the sooner I know the sooner I can request off.
I will let you know ASAP.
Is it okay if I want to come, despite not knowing you guys in person yet? I would assume that if babymonkey
are coming, I could carpool with them. And I can sleep on a couch or floor. XD I just need to know at least a week or two in advance so I can ask off (assuming I'm still working for Kroger by then, which I'm hoping I won't be).
Certainly! I will add you to the list and give you a date as soon as I can be certain; I'm hoping by the end of the month.

Can only be there in spirit. Will be working on moving from near Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Vancouver, Washington. Yay West Coast. :)
I'm jealous - I miss the Pacific!
There's a 90% likeliehood that I will be starting a brand-new job in another state that weekend. Mayhaps Nick & I can make a guest appearance via webcam?
Definitely you will at least have to call!
Times like this I wish you all lived in Jersey, New York or Philly because I'd actually make the trip.
...then again, OH is only about 500 miles from here. I could always rent a big Chevy, don my Ray Bans and say I'm on a mission from God.
Maybe not. I guess if you do some kind of webcam hookup type thing I'll pop in.
I'm going to go take my medicine now.
We're off to Chicago for my brother's engagement party. So, too bad so sad for us. Sniff, sniff.
Can't commit to anything right now as, even though I just passed my driving test, I don't have a vehicle. I'd love to, though, if a way could be found to get me there.
I'm up for the road trip, and can carry passengers. But I'm working the weekend of the 3rd, and free the folowing weekend.
B: Work schedules permitting, we'll attempt whatever is chosen.
Consider me a middling maybe, babe. Gots to find a job first and it will all depend on that. But if job (or lack thereof permits), I will be there with bells if it's not on the weekend of the 4th (already committed, i fear).

If you have room for a couple for a visit?
We could come and stay with you and help out and Shawn would just need internet access to work. We could arrive on the 2nd and stay for a week if you don't think we would burn out on each other...but oh, it would be such a neat experience to come visit you and see where you live and watch movies and play Wii Fit and Rock Band!

Re: If you have room for a couple for a visit?
Let me figure out which weekend it's going to be--with all the company I have work to catch up on first--but it should be absolutely doable and totally awesome!
I wish we could be there, but money is so tight right now and the month before Gencon will be an absolute bear for Brent this year. But on the good side, there should be at least 3 new board games at the AEG booth (or possibly more if the artist for Brent's new game ever finishes up), which is good for the company and our bank account.
Stupid question, but in which of the 50 states will this be happening?
Ohio. Cleveland area, specifically. Not a stupid question at all!
I'd love to be on the filter even though I probably won't make it, just 'cause I care. But oh wouldn't it be fun if I could!
It would be tremendous fun! Filter will be put together next week.
