Is there a date that you might want to suggest that you can make it?

How about on the Saturday (15 February)? Just wondering...

I have no problem with the 15th, but if we are going to change the date we better make sure the word gets around.

People took a poll and the 16th won. Any Saturday was never consider. And the DDM's have always been on a Sunday. So...I don't think they are going to change. Sorry about that Kong. Is there something you need help with that would make it possible to come in the 16th?

I have no problem with the 15th, except I HAVE TO WORK THAT DAY. I arranged to have the 16th off, instead. Kong, I will flip you for it. I call tails

I too can make the 15th - bit l8 for changes tho... isnt it supposed to be a full days event in any case ?

Ive already emailed and threadded and IM'd the 16th to everyone. This is changeable but better make the mind up quick cos ppl will be making arrangements to be there.... on the 16th - and you know how ppl hate to be messed around. Not to mention the folks that dont get the new info book a day off to be there and find they missed it..

Kong, so sorry you don't feel considered. I DID. I *think* the 16th was chosen because of 1) the proximity to Seumas's birthday, 2) the availability of the server operator, and 3) the "tradition" of having DDM events on Sunday. It would be nice to have you there at the event.

I cannot make it on the 15th or 16th but the 17th or 18th would be good if you don`t mind. Thank you so much.

this is what we do...everyone who is running a server...shut it down for the 15th and 16th. This should only leave the LDA and Par's server up...thus forcing everyone to play on either. That should solve the problem.

edit: listed incorrect server

No solution will please everyone. It won't.

A poll was taken, and results were overwhelmingly for the 16th.

"The good of the many outweighs the good of the few, or the one"

I suggested right from the beginning that the McNally's wishes should take precedence. I've not seen a post that they expressed a particular preference for the date. Par, you communicated with Jim. Any preference from the family?

If not, I say on with the 16th.

I know that...but if everyone did shut down their server for those two days... it would be even cooler...still have the DDM at 8 PM EST, on Sunday....but think about it 2 day of TM...and all nite...I know I will be wasted that weekend...

There would have been no problem if it was left at the day when it was originally planned. WE did have a whole year to work around that day? That was the day I left open for it. Now you guys changed it and not everyone can adjust to that day. Why was it changed again? So now I must miss it after having planned and arranging my schedule to be there.

thanks guys

As per usual, Treadmarks events have been thrown into a pit of disarray! Could we all please please PLEASE decide on ONE day first and foremost, or people'll be turning up at random times, seeing there's maybe only 1 or 2 people on the server and logging off!

15th or 16th people?

schedule pics every 4 hours or so. just make sure everyone knows when the pics are so everyone can make it to one of them. maybe a few could be patched together...

I think the fairest compromise would be a picture at 7pm est on the 15th and another picture at 7pm est on the 16th. And both pictures used for the official records.

Although, in the future a date needs to be picked a year in advanced and not moved around.
