    I won’t be able to commit until we have a firm date AND when the family vacation plans are solid. Hopefully a week or two.Report

  2. Avatar Jaybird says:

    Yes, I think I need a week or two. (The conversation that took place last night wandered through “maybe we could both go” territory.)Report

  3. It’s still 50-50 for us.   Most likely it would be both my wife and I if we go, though, with the daughter staying with grandparents.

    The dates are clear for us.  The biggest question mark is that we’ve got a big vacation planned for March for which we’ve already booked airfare, but have not yet booked hotels. Our ability to attend mostly hinges on how the hotel costs for that vacation shake out.

    We should have a much clearer picture on all this sometime next week.Report

    We’re hoping to go – my wife and I – if we can get baby-sitting for a couple days. At this point, bringing the kids would probably be too difficult.Report

  5. Avatar Murali says:

    Its looking more and more like I’m not going to be able to make it.Report

  6. I regret that I won’t be able to make it. Next time, perhaps.Report

  7. Avatar James K says:

    I’m a definite no, but should some kind of Skype connection be possible I’d be happy to call in.Report

  8. Avatar Tom Van Dyke says:

    Unlikely.  The size of the security detail I’d need would be too disruptive.Report

  9. Avatar Patrick Cahalan says:

    I don’t think I can make it, either.

    That happens to be Kitty’s reunion weekend back east.  So either I’ll be in D.C. with the kids while she’s at Bryn Mawr, or I’ll be at Bryn Mawr with the kids providing primary daycare while she attends reunion thingies, or I’ll be home here with the kids while she solos back east for the reunion.

    Just picked the wrong weekend for 2012.  Ain’t no thing.  Hm, maybe I can Skype in on the actual Saturday…Report

    Living only 100 miles north of the epicenter of these proposed meetings, I feel compelled to do what I can to be there.  Although, in truth, I’m not sure what I might add other than to be the strange guy who doesn’t say much and can’t over the fact that Jaybird really is “that guy” or Van Dyke or Kelly really is “that guy”, or somesuch. 

    And, being in the golf business, the holidays do tend to be our times for toil while other people go off to places like, I don’t know, Las Vegas, to hobknob and play golf.  So, my position in terms of attendance remains a cautious and guarded tentatively maybe.  For what that’s worth.Report

  11. Avatar Tim Kowal says:

    I’m still working on logistics as well and hope to have a better idea next week.Report

  12. Avatar Will Truman says:

    Talked it over with the wife. I’m in. Clancy is unlikely, unless she is unemployed by that point.


  13. Avatar Burt Likko says:

    And thanks, everyone, for the RSVP’s declining with regrets. While it’s disappointing personally, it does help from a planning perspective.Report

  14. Avatar Tod Kelly says:

    Also – and this probably goes without saying – I’m going to expect see that everyone looks exactly like their gravatar.Report

  15. Avatar Tim Kowal says:

    Did we decide on the actual day the meet-up would take place?Report
