When are we having RJ 2013?
« on: February 11, 2013, 08:43:04 am »
NOMINATIONS:

Labor Day Weekend (August 31 - September 2)
June 15, 16
June 21-23
June 28-30

July 4-7

I guess we need nominations for dates for Ram Jam 2013.  We will be having it at Hidden Falls Adventure Park, Marble Falls, Texas.

We had RJ2012 on the weekend of June 1 last year.  Some of our guys said they couldn't attend because their kids were still in school. 

Several guys would rather have it on Labor Day weekend because they get a 3 day weekend.

I will put nominated dates at the top of this post as they are made.  If you have ANY INPUT regarding why or why not any given date, this it the time to do it. 

We need to establish a date soon so that we can organize a committee of some sort to get planning underway.  We will need several of our guys to step up to the plate and help here.

    I think a 3 day weekend would be great.

    There are some advantages to Labor Day but some might not be interested in those dates due to kids in school.

    I nominate June 15, 16

    what about another weekend, such as June 15,16 and make it an optional 3 day weekend for those who can take off early?

    I think that more or less happened last year, but at the very end. If going in knowing people will show up late thurs/ early fri then the rest can plan to either show up early or on the normal weekend schedule.

    The way I see it, some people are not able to take off an extra day unless it is actually a holiday.  I have always been able to take off a day or two regardless of the weekend. 

    Advantages to Labor Day include the fact that it is a holiday and most everyone gets Monday off.  It is also later in the year, giving us more time to get our act together.

    Disadvantages include the conflict with school.  I doubt if my family could go because kids are involved in football games and other school functions that would not let them go that far or long.  There will be a lot of people at Hidden Falls that weekend for other functions.

    Advantages for June include better weather (maybe) and less conflict with school unless we schedule it too early like last year.  Hidden Falls expects a smaller crowd in June than the Labor Day weekend.

    Disadvantages include less planning time and the lack of an extra long holiday weekend.  It also gives members less time to plan for the event.

    Regardless of the weekend, some of us will take off an extra day or two just because we can.

    I won't be able to attend, if it isn't a long weekend. It is too far to drive otherwise.

    Any weekend is fine for me since I have vacation time available.  Just in case, I put in for Labor Day W/E before someone else does.  I do think that later in the summer will give some guys more time to get their rig ready.  If the 3 day w/e is better for more attendance then I'm all for it.

    Just in case no one noticed, June 15/16 is Father's Day weekend.  (Sunday 16th) and Flag Day is June 14th. 

    Just a thought but some guys might be off for a 4 day weekend on July 4th (Thursday) through July 7th.

    MY bad!  I didn't research the June date enough.  I won't un-nominate it, but it won't be my favorite anymore.

    I consider SixGun's post as a nomination for July 4-7.

    okay guys, coming Monday morning we will be voting on a date.  If you want to add a nomination for any other date, now is the time.  Any discussion of dates can be done now or next week while we pick a date.

    I know many of you guys want at least a 3 day holiday weekend.  I'm not sure what days everyone will have off on July 4th.  I only know that I have family commitments during that weekend and there is no way that I can attend on that weekend.

    I nominated Father's day weekend and normally that would be fine with me but I will have my son and his family here from Peru during that time period.  I suspect Father's day would not be a good choice.

    Labor day will be a little undesirable because my son and his family will be back in Peru by then.  However, it looks better than the other days we have nominated at this point.  I had hoped to have him attend.  If we pick Labor Day, I can see him being able to attend when we have a planning meet earlier during the summer.

    Tell us what your problems and desires are.  If you don't, we won't know until it is too late.

    Ok how about the 22-23? I'm really open for what ever we decide. I don't really have a whole lot going on at this time. I do know it would be nice to have good weather.
