So I voted, but really, given I only have to drive a few miles, it probably doesn't matter much.

Just as an FYI, the Frequent Traveler Awards will be held on April 26th next year, so I hope you pick the week before.

LOL. I won't be picking...or voting, unless it's a tie in both polls. If that happens, then I will have quite a dilemma on my hands.

Well, let's hope it all works out. We'd certainly like to welcome you back to the River City.

Ditto. I still salivate when I think about last year's food.

Showcasing Austin is always nice to do.

With the middle April date, taxes will be over with, good reason to celebrate or drown your sorrows. Also late April is glorious in many places in the US so I'd really rather not be in Austin then.

I'm a bit of a new FT'er and I've seen the Do threads before but I'm not sure exactly what goes on at these. Since I live in Austin I'm thinking it might be neat to check it out. What typically goes on at this event as it appears to be multiday?

Thanks!

It's the best time to visit Texas wine country - good scenery and great alcohol!

There will be a myriad of events and activities, including lots of BBQ from around the region and some other Texas staples. The exact itinerary is still in flux due to the event being about a year away still, but everything will be announced in due time. Suffice it to say that it's a great opportunity to get together with other folks from FlyerTalk (and MilePoint) and have a good time.

Well I'm at a trade show in LAS the first dates so I'm hoping for the 2nd, but that of course would mean missing the FT Awards. However, that might be a sacrifice I have to make in order to attend the Austin Do, of which I heard so many fabulous things.

If by chance the first week wins out (like it looks like it will from the poll so far), I'll have to think about doing two separate tickets - the biz trip to LAS & then a separate ticket to AUS, and fly down on Thurs after the show ends.

Cheers.
