Well, we don't know the date yet so some of us don't yet know if we're attending.

I am not sure until I know more details about cost as to whether or not I will be able to attend, but I would vote for either DC or NC.

the first one works best for me, but until I know something of prices, I won't be able to determine if finances allow me to attend.

Sounds good to me as well.  If we do it in DC again, I think we should all agree that we go to services together, no matter where they end up being, rather than split up.  Also, I think we could hold a couple of reader's services wherever we end up staying.

I voted NY, seeing as I live here, Smiley but really any of the choices would be fine, as long as it's on the east coast. And as for dates, again, all three listed are fine...although I think the June dates would be better...and actually the second weekend in June, at that. But I would attend on any of those weekends. Smiley

And by the by, MsGuided's log cabin is SO FUN! It would fill my heart with joy if OCNetSummerfest '04 were to take place in a life-sized lincoln log cabin! Smiley

I voted for Steeltown in support of my friends Aristokles and Deacon Lance.

I saw enough of DC during the 2.5 years my son spent as a patient in Walter Reed Army Hospital.

Besides, I can get to Pittsburgh from my house by car in about three hours.

Joe,

If you want to go to the Old Rite church, I'll be happy to go with you.  I've never been there myself, but one of the families that helped to build the parish are the parents and grandparents of people at my parish, so I have a pretty good connection there.

Everyone should vote Pittsburgh because traveling the PA Turnpike is truly an ascetic experience (like wearing a hair shirt).

How true! Unless you're a local and know your way around that thing.
But Mr. Zollars might be on to something here. There are three Orthodox camps in the area - the ACROD one between Erie and Pittsburgh, the Antiochian Village in Latrobe,and I think a new Greek one down near Deacon Lance. Maybe one would have accommodations for a small party available in early June before the kids arrive. Be nice to have the option of an on-site church, 'indoor' camping for anastasios & bride, and still have all the other churches in a reasonable drive.

Come on, all the washington people switch your vote to Pittsburgh so that we can avoid going to NYC Wink .

Actually, it seems to me that Pittsburgh is in the middle between NYC and DC so woudl be a happy medium.  In addition to that, do you really want to have the summerfest in the same place every year? as they say Variety is the spice of life.

Well, if I may do some plugging:  

Canonsburg, about 15 miles south of Pittsburgh on I79, 10 from the airport, has a Super 8 so you could do 4 people to a room for about $20 each/night.  

St. John the Baptist Church OCA, All Saints Church, GOA, are within two miles of the motel, St George CHurch Antiochian is about five miles.  

Holy Cross Church, GOA in Mt. Lebanon is having its Greek Food Fesival Jun18-21, it is about a 10 mile drive.

Camp Nazareth is in Mercer, PA is about a two hour drive from Pittsburgh
Antiochian Village is in Bolivar, PA a few miles past Ligonier is about a 1 hour drive from Pittsburgh

There's St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church in Ambridge, PA which, according to the Coptic Orthodox Church Directory, is basically considered Pittsburgh.

There's also Holy Virgin Dormition Church (ROCOR) in McKeesport, PA and this says it's 10 miles south of Pittsburgh.
Holy Trinity Church is about an hour south of Pittsburgh in California, PA.
And St. Basil the Great Orthodox Church is about 45 minutes south of Pittsburgh in Belle Vernon, PA.

Ok, so I have nothing better to do...
So this is what I gather from what people have posted (since I can't see who voted for what)...

People who definately want it in NY - MsGuided
People who definately want it in Pittsburg- Deacon Lance, Demitri, & Linus
People who definately want it in DC- Ania, Anastasios, Shultz

People who would want it either in DC or Pittsburg- Frobbie, Joe Zollars, David, Bobby.  
People who would don't care where is & would go anywhere- TomS, Donna Rose.

Sound about right?

Yes, kiddies
The ole 'Burgh has all this and MORE...
If I have time I'll compile a list of Orthodox Churches within reasonable driving range (Deacon Lance, Schultz, Paradosis, and I know where all the strange 'suburban' towns are).
This is a big place for the Ruthenians as well. And of course, Pittsburgh is very Roman Catholic.

I selfishly vote for D.C. because of the children.  Traveling with a junior entourage gets very complicated.  

I'm not so sure about camping.  I remember that Mor does not like 6-legged wildlife.  

Now, Joe. You mean that you'd even want the GH's to go to services with all of you?  Grin

GH is "Graceless Heretics"(tm)... I'm not sure who started that phrase but it's stuck as a joke.  

Thank you for the offer of a river baptism...I'm not sure if the Potomac, the Ohio or the Allegheny are, shall we say, ideal.  Don't want to give the baptisands water-bourn illness, or knocked out by floating branches or pulled by an undertow.... sets the wrong tone for the occaision.   Cheesy  ('sides, I still reckon that I was thoroughly baptized nearly 48 years ago... sorry.  Smiley )

Ah I see now.  Don't worry Ebor, I wouldn't want to be Baptized in any of those rivers anyway.  Besides it was just a joke.

NYC is not going to be the place summerfest is held. TOOOOOO expensive, Bobby realized.  We will let you all know what's going on soon as right now we can't talk about it as Bobby and I are overly busy.

Well, seeing as I'll be off of school in the summer and my house is only about an hour from the 'Burgh, you can guess where I wouldn't mind having it held.
There's something you guys are forgetting.  If I remember correctly, Pittsburgh is a cathedral city (or whatever the term is in the East - I'm still new to this) for at least two jurisdictions: GOA (yay, Bishop MAXIMOS!) and Serbian (still not sure of the Bishop for them. I should ask one of my friends).
And thank you very much for the offer, but this catechumen does not want to be baptised in any of the Three Rivers.  Too much of a health hazard, not to mention the undertow, the random debris, the trash, the dead bodies (j/k!), and the rather large catfish.  Of course, this assumes that I would need to be baptised again.  I'm still a little iffy on that point, as in "I honestly have no clue".
Well, enough rambling.  My vote is for Pittsburgh.
And seriously.  Why is NY in the lead?  I love the city, but it is waaaaay too expensive.

Kansas? What the heck are we going to do out there? The highlight would have to be the buffalo chip toss contest. And here are the rules according to this site :

http://www.farmfair.org/1999/opens.htm

"Rule 20 for buffalo chip tossing contest states, 'Gloves are discouraged. Persons using gloves will be labeled ‘sissy’ and may be penalized at the discretion of the judges and subject to ridicule by the crowd and contestants.' "

Dear Light from the East,

Christ is Risen!

Well, I am not forgetting that 4 Orthodox bishops reside in Pittsburgh.  They being KYRILL of the OCA, MAXIMOS of the GOA, CONSTANTINE of the UOC-EP and MITROFAN of the Serbian Church.

However, how does that impact our choice?

Man, that could be fun!

When I was a kid, my friends and I used to toss cow pies and horse turds at each other.

The road apples were the best. They break open upon impact, releasing a wet and smelly inner core.

Best to duck or seek cover.

I'm glad my kids aren't reading this, Linus... I don't want them to get any ideas on flinging at the moment.   Cheesy

We  did water balloons out in Montana.  The Bison were off at the National Bison Range in Moise over the mountains.

We also used mud from the creek and over-ripe tomatoes in the summer time.

Ya know, that's a really good question.  I think it was somewhere in the neigborhood of 1:30 or 2:00 a.m. when I wrote that, so coherency was not a primary concern of mine.  Regardless, my vote stands for the 'Burgh.  It's really about the only place that I have the remotest possibility of getting to on what little money I have.

10-4.

I'm not going to NYC, which, of course, may actually inspire some to vote for that city.

I think we've pretty much eliminated NYC and NC.  Why don't we repost this poll with the options being DC and Pitt and see how that goes?
