    ....we need to arrive at a decision and soon, on whether or not we are holding a Kon in 2014. I know Lily was heading this up, bless her heart...but life has gotten in her way...and I'll take the reins and see if I can help make this a reality for those able to attend this go around. We must decide, so that plans can be made-like vacation time, personal leave, accommodations etc....the most popular three contenders at last vote were Ohio-site of Shawshank...Colorado, coz of The Shining and back to Maine-the Holy Land of King...please express your wishes, and all opinions must be in by 1-15-2014. At that point, I'll count em up and away we go...I will be manning the Ohio delegation if chosen, and someone else will need to step up if another location is chosen...Also, it's between those three and those three ONLY...no other locations will be considered...thanks for your time, and Go Team!....

    Edited by Flake:

    This thread is for the purpose of discussing the logistics of holding a King Kon in 2014.

    Anybody wishing to read and join in on the discussion of the last 'Kon' (2013) can do so here.

    I don't know if I will be able to attend, because I start a new job in March - I might have to take my vacation when possible instead of when I want to, everyone else have already sent their vacation wishes. But IF I can join, which I would love to, I would prefer Maine. I have wanted to go to Maine for years, so this might be my chance - if Maine is chosen.

    My health permitting. I would vote Ohio. Shawshank is one of my favorite King adaptions.

    Isn't there already a King Kon thread here?

    I think this thread is the King Kon thread actually - there was an old one on the old board but you may not be able to access it anymore? I am not sure. For me, Ohio would be a go as far as ease of travelling.

    Nope. This is on the new board.

    Perhaps Scott created this thread with organising next years (possible) Kon in mind? Whereas the older thread also incorporates messages relating to the 2013 Kon?
    It will probably be easier to have a new thread for this purpose, but if Scott wants to merge the threads I can do that when he next logs in.

    I'm down. I don't care where it's held - if I can get the time (which may or may not be possible, depending on the when, and how that coincides with fishing seasons), I will be there. Labor Day weekend would be optimal. Just sayin'.

    I wish I could attend one of these, I really do.

    Same thought here- a place to finalize/ POLL which of the three location will be the winner. Having this thread brings it back to mind and with one task in mind-- pick the location and then we'll move forward.

    Me too Flake- the last one seemed like just a wonderful experience. Economics and critters responsibilities just don't allow it.
    However---- come a lottery win, may we both could attend.

    The dedication of the original thread is to all things Kon, past, present and future. There was actually already some discussion about the next one, including the fact that Sai King is taking 2014 off and won't be there. He doesn't do cons, we're told.
    Most likely, didn't want to go looking for the original thread. I can relate. But it's there.

    ...yeah Lepp, you got me...quicker and easier to start a new one for the grumpy old man...but if merging is the desire-I don't object, it's just a that a fresh thread would be simpler for me to follow-instead of trying to incorporate the wishes of those who have yet to make "the leap" to the shiny new toy we call the Board...whatever y'all think-I'm just trying to make it as easy as possible...

    Rather than have people wade through old posts, I have edited the title of this thread and left a message in the original post to let folks know the purpose of the thread.
    I do appreciate both views, but think it will be easier for people to keep on top of things in a thread dedicated specifically to a 2014 Kon. :)

    I've never been to Ohio, would love to go. But plane fare isn't a doable option at this point. Maine is my vote. We can't do polls on this new board, huh?

    We can add a poll if you guys would like one.

    Wish I could attend next year again. But it seems unlikely cause I have so much to pay off beginning of the year, so
    don't think that we can make it. But on the other hand I said that same about the last kon and surprise we found ourselves in
    ME this July on the kon. We'll see.

    I'd love to meet everyone! I think I could make Ohio - but I'd so love to visit Maine or Colorado. I'll just try to work with whatever wins out.
