Would be pretty sweet to hold an event around that. Maybe even have a battle during the eclipse, although it will only last for like two and a half minutes. I really want to see a solar eclipse, and the next one that occurs nearby isn't until like 2024 or something.
Well, we certainly have enough notice to plan something. I know the Carolinas pretty well. We could go to a campground somewhere. I know of a few good ones, but I'm not sure how they're suited to water warfare, I'll have to go back and look.
People did have constraints before, but I think this year it's more serious. I wasn't married until Spring '13. For a little stretch I didn't have as many Army demands. I'm working an hour and a half away for my civilian job, and my Army job is 5 hours away from that. So, right now, I need to fix that, because that's not good in any aspect. The Tretels weren't in Texas/California. Scott's class schedule wasn't as intense? Keith wasn't playing college ball. Rob's agoraphobia wasn't acting up as much.
That doesn't mean I don't want to meet up every month, or close to that, I do. We just have to decide that if only 4-5 of us can get together that it's still worth it.
With that in mind, let's try to get some definite on the Maryland trip. I will talk to Tiffany. Everyone else, let's see if we can get some commits. Baltimore might be the best bet, since it increases the likelihood that Nick and Black 6 can come. We wouldn't actually play in Bmore, but we would meet up and go somewhere nearby.
