    Chili, does the second weekend NOT suit your personal schedule? Or is the cabin already booked?

    Or am I wrong in thinking that people would take off on a friday and come in on a Thursday eve (like rich did last year) in order to make an extended weekend out of their Saturday? Would they just as likely and easily take off monday?

    Anyone else wish to chime in on that topic?

    Sorry, folks, I've been out of contact for a couple days and am now listening to the surf sounds at the Outer Banks. Tony, to answer your question (along with a couple others), I chose the dates deliberately to avoid having two weekends, because it appeared to me that there was a general preference to make the rally shorter rather than longer. As a sort of compromise, I spoke with Jay Greiner earlier this week and found that, indeed, the camp is already rented to someone else up through Thursday the 4th, but that group is leaving the morning of the 4th, and we would be able to move in by the afternoon of the 4th. My schedule is flexible enough that I don't mind committing to drive up a day early and nabbing the camp keys that Thursday afternoon, but I'd like to see a show of hands of people for whom this would make a difference.

    One of the great unanswered questions: Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?

    Rumor has it that I will, indeed, have accrued sufficient vacation time to attend the 2016 Amish. That being said, if I'm riding up, I will leave on the fourth.

    I think your correct about focusing on one weekend as the consensus. I would have expected the second weekend, since we previously held it the third weekend and then later moved it to the second and then later (these past 2 yrs) extended it to the first. The third weekend had a lot of college and little league traffic and tgere were concerns that the first weekend might be hotter than the second. But either works. Now you know the history of choosing tge dates.

    So since some of the guys are already saying that they could come in thursday and are making tentative schedules around that weekend; maybe that would work rather than suggesting or inquiring abiut changing the dates from Monday the 8th tthru monday the 15th for this yr.

    About 10 yrs ago tge rally was always on the first weekend and the temps were over 100 degrees on a couple days the one year. Then Phil jumped 2 weekends to the third weekend till we realized the extra traffic in lewisburg, state college and williamsport drom college move-ins and little league.

    I guess you have 3 hands thus far; probably some others will chime in. I'm just thinking that a 4 day weekend might be more worthwhile.

    I night get killed coming that weekend. My wife's birthday is August 5th. Maybe if I treat her well before that I can make it. I don't remember the rally ever being the first weekend of August.
