Hey ya'll,

It's time again..time to plan for SummerFest 04!

It would be very helpful if we could get a prelim headcount, of people who are going to attend, and those who might even be mildly interested in attending.  

Some basic info as of now:
Dates: Between June-August '04 Over a weekend, most likely 3 or 4 days in length.
Location: East coast, as far north as NY, as far south as SC, might go elsewhere? Maybe.
Cost: Would be as minimal as possible, but we would calculate lodging as amt of ppl/cost of place, cost for food, transportation, etc.

If you are interested in signing up, you can fire me either an email (email is in profile) or a PM, or just state it here on the thread. That way I can put you on the mailing list as we plan the process.

We have a new number of members since last year, so I am hoping we see some new faces this year.

Sincerely,

Robert

I would be interested in attending if not held on the east coast.  Perhaps you should go for someplace in the middle of hte country, say Kansas?  I say this not because I live in Kansas but because there are quite a few of us in this area of hte country plus those further west.

May I also sugget early June so that it is not a fasting period for anyone.  Or maybe after July 11 for the same reason.  I don't know how many fellow Old Calandrists are on here, but I am sure there are a few.

Ha ha ha... That's great.

I'm interested in going. I may be in Russia all summer...but there's a chance I could attend the SummerFest (anything like Oktoberfest?) in mid to late August, or early June. If there's any way to set a date soon, that would be great as I need to plan my Russian flight within a week or so.
 
What do you think about Boston or NYC?
Boston and surrounding areas have a little of everything-  Churches from almost every jurisdiction, city life, beaches a little north of the city, walden pond a close drive from the city, etc.

Pittsburgh!
Plenty of Orthodox Churches- many traditions. -Eastern and  Coptic (and  those others, Byzantines, and of course, many RCCs). Monasteries and seminaries are in the area (and by mid summer baseball will not be a distraction if the Pirates are true to form).

I've got to be St. Vincent's Hospital's unpaid slave, I mean INTERN from May 17 to June 11, after which I will be working but can tell CVS where to go if they don't give me my days off for Summerfest  Wink

And perhaps this is an un-ideal suggestion, but maybe we can have multiple summerfests, for those who are spread across the country and can't really make it to far away places that would involve airfare.  I know I would hate to miss out on a weekend or more of food, fun, and orthodoxy simply because it's too far away Wink

We can make the admins go to all of them to be fair and balanced  Roll Eyes

I think DC will continue to be a viable and fair midpoint for us.  Most of our concentration of posters is East Coast.

I like the idea of Pittsburgh...closer for those of us in the south and midwest.  Kim's suggestion might be good as well, perhaps an OCnet Fest West in addition to the traditional eastern festival. Smiley

DC is nice, I like the idea of NY and also Pittsburgh.

Our main stumbling block is accommodations.  Last summer was perfect as TomS graciously provided his apartment for the weekend.  This time around though, we have to investigate venues of renting a suite of some sort or perhaps staying in a hotel. This presents some difficulty, as suites aren't that cheap, and well, if we have 15+ people in one suite, this obviously is problematic.

So, I am open to suggestions, publically or private, as to how we might best handle this.  In the meanwhile, I am still searching for places that we can stay for cheap and comfortably.

As nice as a campground sounds, I don't know if we want to tolerate 3-4 days in the sweltering heat with minimal shower facilities and latrines for toilets.

Not all campgrounds are that primitive.  The last one I was at(Hot Springs, NC) had a bathroom facility of 4 toilets(regular flush toilets on a septic system), 2 showers, and 2 sinks per 10 campsites.  It was very adequate for our parish campout, but the showers did go cold from time to time.  Well worth the $10 per night per campsite.

Anything is fine with me, as long as it is affordable.  It may be fun to do a non-OCnet fest campout for those who are interested a month or two after the main event as just friendly fellowship.

David:

I'd be interested in a campout, especially if it was up here in NC. As you said, there are a few campgrounds, and I think a few of us (Frobie, Clint, myself, any others) would have a great time with some brews and a nice fire. So, perhaps we can develop this initiative separately. OC.net Campout 04 eh Wink

As far as the SummerFest goes, still lookin

Well, DC worked out okay last year, but a new city might be fun as well.  As the membership grows, we can also have regional get togethers; OCfestwest, OCmidwestfest, etc.

Hey if the Fest ends up in NY, maybe my parents' log cabin in Chappaqua will be livable by that time, bringing in a few sleeping bags should be able to squish about 12 or so people with 3 bathrooms, and if people want to sleep in the living room, then even more Wink Then we can all take a trip to see our beloved ex-President and our beloved NYS Senator!  :smiley11:

What about regional summerfests? It is obvious that those in the mid west and west coast cannot attend an east coast summerfest.

So...why not have four different summerfest and share all the stories and pics online?

My suggestion:

North East: New York
South East: Northern Virginia
Central Zone: St Louis
South West: Arizona

Sorry to say that I would love to open up my apartment so that everyone could come to DC again, however, my sister would not be as thrilled... :-(  Imagine, she considers writing her PhD more important than OC.netfest.  It woulda been great too, considering I live across the street from the Peachtree.  Anyway, my summer is pretty open, not counting the last weekend of July & first weekend of August, as long as someone can give me a ride...

I would suggest an East Coast gettogether in DC area, a midwest getogether, and a West Coast if such is a possibility.  The only problem is that all the administrators and moderators live on the east coast except for Prodromos John who lives in Greece Smiley  So the other gettogethers would be bereft of administrator appearances Sad
