Since Katie and I volunteered to plan the Hahn Family Reunion v2.0, we thought it would be a good idea to get an early start on ideas and planning. Also, we'd like to get ideas about places you would like to go, dates, food ideas, activities, etc. Hence - this Blog. We are all authors of this Blog, so anyone can post anything for everyone to view.
First things first - we need to pick a location. I think we all enjoyed last years camp in Heber - great facilities, perfect location, and overall, a great time. I know we enjoyed it, and it was nice to have restrooms and shower facilities, as well as a food storage/preparation area. It may be hard to find many similar places with the same configuration, but I think we may be able to find something that's close enough. Given that we are all divided into 2 different geographic locations (Salt Lake/Utah Valley and Denver), we think it would be nice to pick a place that is in some sort of centralized location, or equidistant for everyone (more or less). We have a place in mind, but that will be a future post. So, if you could all come up with some possible locations, we can look into them.
Second - let's narrow down some dates. We've tossed around some thoughts via e-mail as to when people would be available. It seemed to me that the general consensus was late July/early August. Is this a correct assumption? If that's the case, I propose either the last week of July or the first week of August. Along with this, we need to decide how long the reunion should be. My thoughts were that the last reunion was too short. I vote for extending the festivities for a day or two, to allow for more fun and activities, as well as to take into consideration travel time. This would bring the total time to 4-5 days or so. By my calculations, this puts it between July 27-August 1, or August 3-7, give or take a day. Think that would work for everyone? This far in advance, I think it will be pretty easy for people to put in requests for time-off at work and to make other necessary plans.
With that in mind, what does everyone think? Where would you like to spend the Hahn Family Reunion 2009? When would you like to go and how long would you like to stay? As has been mentioned by people before - things fill up fast, so we need to get an idea soon as to when and where we want to do this so we can make reservations and other necessary arrangements.
Let's put our heads together, everyone, and get started! With enough planning and preparation, we can make the Hahn Family Reunion v2.0 a fantastic time!
