I know we've joked about the chaos that would ensue if everyone met. After speaking with a couple people though, I've decided that we should give it a go. Even if mayhem results. :mrgreen:

This first thread is solely to determine how many people would be interested. If enough people respond, than we will have later threads about location, dates, and other planning matters. However, if you have any concerns that would affect whether or not you would attend, feel free to post them

So howbout it? Would you be interested in a debate politics convention?

Sounds great. But I will need some time to sharpen and pack my arrow heads.

Sounds great, I completely agree with Kelzie.;)

OH OH, have it in Chicago, I have a few connections, I'm sure I could get us a convention hall for practically nothing.

I say "yes" right now. I think it could be fun. When we know more details later I can say if I am in or not for sure.

My thoughts exactly. Sounds increadibly groovy.

The big depends for me is location and enough time to save up funds.

I vote yes.

I would be interested, but I think since this is a political message board that it should be held in the city that is our political capital--Washington, D.C.

The only thing I worry about is being too much of an object of lust for the men (and the women). ;)

It sounds like alot of fun, as long as there are metal detectors at the entrance, lol! Depending on the date and location I would love to meet everyone in person.

*Also, I work as a travel agent so I could help with some group things if the organizer would need any help putting together a group conference. I do group things all the time so it's no problem.*

Forget that. It should be held in Virgina Beach. Two members are already here, which makes up about 75 percent of the DP crowd. Sorry....I had a "Billo" statistical moment there.

I'll fly anywhere.

No, crime has been reduced dramatically here, we just pushed it further south, in no way did we actually cure it.:(

I promise if enough people are interested we will start a "where at" thread to duke it out. Might have a lot to do with where we can get the best deals.

If 75 percent of the DP crowd is in Virginia Beach and 75 percent of the DP crowd is in the District, then that means that 25 percent live elsewhere for a grand total of 100 percent?.......dammit, how does "Billo" work his percentages.

Damn, I was hoping to make "Billo" disappear without anyone noticing. Oh well, there's always toilet swirlies.
