Memorial day weekend will make travel more of a bear, and interfere with many family activites. Really early May gets dicier with the weather (late April Rotary meets have been freeze events).

I would shoot for the middle two, IMHO, depending on how everthing else fits.

GR on Memorial. Good luck with that. Everyone from S of MI pretty much goes up 131 to camp up north.

You don't have an option for June. We lucked out the last two years with awesome weather. '04 wasn't so nice, and it wasn't just because of the rain. We can keep our fingers crossed, but if I had to do it all over again, I'd go with June. More people out of school, most Weddings take place in May so there'll be less people complaining about that, and the weather is bound to be warmer. I'm with Jim, and think 2 weeks AFTER Carlisle would be perfect!

Memorial Day weekend = Crazy traffic, jacked up gas prices, lots more cops out and about, and the chance of some places not being open such as a track.

Oh, and whatever you do, no baby blue t-shirts or I'm not coming!

Mark took the words out of my mouth. We get lucky every year with the rain. June would be my vote, I understand track availability will have its effect on timing.

you need to find out what weekend(s) the track will be available to us and then go with that. obviously no matter what date is picked people will complain about it.

The problem with June is that its after one of the largest travel weekend of the year. You're going to run into people who travel with their families on memorial day weekend and over-extend themselves financially and then back out of SZ because of that. I'd rather have people come to SZ07 and back out of holiday travel! Plus having a 3 day weekend shortly after SZ to recooperate was actually pretty nice!

how many CEG'ers are going to that?




it's not that the rest of CEG goes to myrtle that week, it's that i do with 20 other members of my family for golfing (because that is one of the least-golfed weeks in myrtle beach, so we plan for it, and get crazy deals cuz the courses want business). that's where i was this year, and would really like to not have to miss again next year because of it, but alas, i'm just one of those people going "not that weekend, no, i can't go that weekend, aghhh"

oh well.
