Here are a few within walking distance. Here are my three suggestions that
keeps us from getting in the car.



Right next to the Classic Center. We could start in the bar and get free
Apps before going to the private room if we can get it.

This place doesn’t look too bad

Now, any ideas where to have our meeting? We would need a back room

I agree with the northern district issues of weather. But a cruise would be
awesome! (I think...never done one!) Would Alaska be out of the question
at that time of year? ;)

We started last Thursday -- not burning out any fires, just the project
lead on the new on-line registration system we implemented in a 6 week time
frame (for new and returning students), to say I've been busy is an
understatement.



Denise, thanks for calling me out!



Anna, thanks for defending me :)



I too agree with Denise's comments. My biggest concern as a 'northern'
district at that time of the year is the weather. It is my understanding
we will still have to pay if we have bad weather and have to cancel the
event. I'm not sure we could afford that kind of loss. I don't think we
would have happy attendees if the conference was cancelled and their were
no refunds. I know there is no way to know if the weather will be bad or
not, but I don't think it is a risk we should take.



I vote, we skip on the meal 'tasting' and not waste either their time or
ours.



Oh and yes, I'm in on the cruise, as long as we don't do the Bermuda
triangle ;-0

The pros and cons of it are:



Pros:

It may be cheaper for the conference center

If may be cheaper for the food

It would be cheaper for the hotels

Restaurants would be close by, along with shopping

Most people are already familiar with it

It would prove a point to the Savannah people



Cons:

It would be even colder than Savannah

Possible snow

Possible complaint that other conferences are held in Athens and will want
it somewhere else

How will that effect southern counties? Maybe look at how many southern
counties come now, along with how many northern counties come now.

A lot of people enjoy Savannah

We already have a good relationship with the Westin and the Conference
Center, will we lose it if we go somewhere else?



If we do the meeting there, they will think they are still in
consideration. We need to decide so we can figure out an alternative site
to have the meeting. Here are some restaurants that have a private room,
but we will need to go ahead and reserve it after we figure out which one,
if we don’t go with the Classic Center.

Priscilla, do we have a contract for the 2017 conference for Savannah?



Mr Nunnally from the Classic Center wants to verify they have an
opportunity to bid on the 2017 conference before he agrees to our meeting.
Our ‘meal’ would only be a tasting meal not a full meal. If we are really
not interested, should we even pursue him any longer?



Let me know your thoughts by the end of the day so I can contact him.
Thanks.
