Title: WV Wild and Wonderful Weekend 2019 Timing and Planning Thread
Post by: 4x4dreamer on February 6, 2019, 10:35:18 AM
I've really dropped the ball this year with everything I have had going on and have neglected to plan our annual spring GTG yet..

At this point it looks like it is going to be a couple of months later this year, which many honestly work out in our favor with weather and such and looking like not having a National GTG again this year.

What is everyone's thoughts about pushing the GTG to later spring and warmer weather?

Sorry I have been MIA guys, life and work has gotten the best of me these last few months.  ::)

I thought WWW was supposed to be a spring GTG, kinda like the end of the cold and beginning of the warm months.

It actually started as a Winter event in order to take advantage of the winter rates at the WV state parks.  Over time it has often migrated later than the original February time slot.  Maybe next year that rascal WV cruise coordinator can get his act together to schedule WV Wild and Wonderful Winter Weekend in the winter.  (j/k, 4x4dreamer)  Any opportunity for a GTG is a good one.

And before Ian stepped up to the task, I seem to remember a few Ohio CCs that used to handle it. He's a young guy with a full plate right now. Even if it is his "turf", I'm sure He'd appreciate any help from anyone that has more time on Their hands.

You know how I feel about doing anything in the summer other then boating.  :beating:  But to be with my AV family I guess I can make an exception. I wouldn't even know where to begin to have it tho. Like Terry said the reason we did it earlier is to get the discounted winter rates at the state parks. It has become more about just hanging out in a cabin so as far as things to do around the area I dont think it truly matters anymore.

I do agree with that the crowds are going to be crazy in the summer, and rates are going to be much higher. Also if there is a Nats this year; end of June is only a month away from the usual Nats date.
