Cool Who Will Be The Next FlyerTalk Member To Post? An OMNI Game LIVE and In Person:ELP 3

After sorting through thousands of emails, voicemails and fan mail, I think it is time to start thinking about the ELP DO 3

So, who is crazy enough to attend a third gathering in beautiful sunny El Paso

There was an interest in having it for SuperBowl Sunday again, and I didn't think I was going to be home, but I checked and I will be here for that day, I will have to travel Monday morning to DTW though. But won't be traveling on Friday like last time

Basically after New Years, until SuperBowl Sunday I am more than glad to have it.

I am spending the whole month of February in Detroit

But after that, any date is good right now.

So, what do you think, are we crazy enough to do this one more time?

Of course I am interested. Doubt that I could make it in March though.

Crazy, yes. The details of your madness don't matter. As once was said, "We're all bozos on this bus."

I have to save up my vacation time for OzFest the 2nd half of May and NW no longer has direct flights to ELP which means a couple full days of flying, so we are tenuous for this one.

Set the date & we will see what we can do.

The ELP Marriott was going down the tubes. We would see alternate accommodations next time.

There is a brand new Hilton Garden Inn

And actually, there are a bunch of other hotels in the works, like the new Double Tree downtown.

There is going to be a major bowling event in ELP next year, and I think people are betting on high occupancy rates. I don't think they considered that those people are leaving at one point

Works for Mrs. Cholula and me depending, of course, on the actual date.

Would prefer a January or February date. Super Bowl is February 3rd.

March-May is getting a little busy for us right now.

Once we get some weekend options, let us know and we'll set up a poll so everybody can vote.

What's with the week-long do Jan 20-27?

I'm fairly sure I can't make any of those dates.

I wouldn't mind a week-long party; I have nothing better to do.
