    Folks,

    I said the other day I was going to start a thread for feedback on this years dinner. I've got a lot of feedback, and it has been overwhelmingly positive. So really I only have one question.....what night to have it?

    In the past we have had it mostly on Friday evening, but I think one time we had it on Saturday night. Somewhere along the line it was mentioned that Saturday night was not good due to that being an auction night at DSC. However, there are live auctions every night if I'm not mistaken. Please let me know if I am.

    If I'm not wrong, then no matter which night we have it, it wouldn't matter. So my question is would you prefer to have the dinner on Friday or Saturday evening? I personally would prefer to have it on Saturday night. But either way it isn't that important to me as I'm there one way or another.

    If you do have any other feedback regarding the dinner, please us this thread to post it. If you'd prefer, you can also PM me too.

    Good deal Phil and Thanks. Lets see if we can lock this dinner deal down to Friday. DSC Convention is always on Thur, Fri, Sat and Sunday no matter what the dates so why not lock the Dinner down to Friday and reserve Gilley's a year out every year. Just saying!:D Barman: we have to remember that a lot of members drive all night Wednesday then work a booth all day Thursday so 1 night of rest and then Party:A Yell:

    Actually that's why I thought Saturday would be better, slow day on Sunday.

    Thursday is I think not such a good idea. Thursday is not greatly attended and I think the dinner would suffer.

    i think Sat is probably the best day, certainly the busiest. Sat also allows for people who cant get away from work on Thursday and Friday. in my case it would mean i could take less days off of work.

    I have never been able to attend, but if I can make it next year, I would at best only be able to attend Saturday afternoon and Sunday. My vote for dinner would be Saturday night.

    Friday or Saturday would be best. You'll get the most people there. Thursday there are too many people who aren't even in town yet. I don't know that either day is truly better though. There are good and bad to both.

    It would though, be really nice to set whatever the date is WAY in advance to allow for better travel and show planning for all.

    Hell, we would all argue about what three had to stow away in the luggage on the trip we bought!
