    IM bringing it up again, tourdewood 2014

    I wanted to mention Im willing to host a 2014 gathering on my tiny property.
    I have a small home but can put up 2 couples as I have 2 spare bedrooms or one couple with children.
    I know my location is difficult for many here who are active members

    Id like to meet some old friends and meet some new ones.

    there is plenty of lodging within a few miles of me, and it is long island, beaches, parks, restaurants, etc....so theres plenty else to do if anyone makes a few days trip of it.(im 40 minutes by train to manhattan)

    larry knows how small my home is, but I can host a party of 30 or 35 in my yard.

    its just a tough location to travel to during summer months since most active members here are from way left of me..

    I will if needed too, pick anyone up at ny airports and bring them to their lodgings.

    I do not require any help physically or financially arranging this gathering.

    for the record, if people want to bring their young children, I will make sure there is children friendly food for them, and if I have too, have a mothers helper here to give their parents a break for a few hours. (there are parks nearby)
    I want to make it convenient for anyoneto attend, not just old people like me.



    Im just bringing it up again this year for this summer.

    Im hoping we can keep the tradition going year to year.

    that's it, back to regular programming.sorry for the interruption.

    That's very generous of you Allen.

    I'm don't know if I'd be able to come this year with the daughter expecting, but will see if I can make it work out closer to the time.

    New York is on my wife's short list of places we have never been that we want to visit so it could be a fun road trip.

    i can vouch for allens hospitality, and the good food nearby,, one thing i regret was not having enough time to see the boardwalk area.. but i still had a great time just the same.. if this comes about i am sure those who attend wont be disappointed.

    Well, it looks pretty doubtful for me, but I learned last year to never say never, That said, I strongly encourage any active members who are within traveling distance to take Allen up on his generous offer. Having participated in a couple of Tour de Wood events myself, as well as several other Family meet-ups, I can heartily endorse meeting with other FW members. It's always a hoot.

    hey folks, if you have interest in this , you need to voice your thoughts. these dont happen over night on the hosting part.. i know. it also takes some scheduling on the attendees part as well so if we work together this can be a reality..
