Yikes! Don't they realize that some of us need to plan a year in advance? Didn't make last year because there wasn't time to coordinate, and am all setup for this year unless they move it in which case won't make it!

After I posted my comment above, I e-mailed Macy a copy of the the comment with the quote.

He replied that with a number of comments about why it was thought to be a good idea to move around to new places, including shortening travel time for those of us in the West.

I replied that I was not complaining about them choosing to move it around, but rather complaining about the lateness of the (still-unannounced) move. I pointed out that their website still shows it in Perry, and also shows the 2009 in Perry.

I have not had a reply to that one.

My personal complaint is that it impacted me a lot. We run a rally for our members at DatastormUsers.com every year, and bounce it around for the same reasons they are considering. Partly based on the timing and location of RIV and RATS we chose Tampa for 2008, a week after RATS. That was announced at the end of our rally in Tucson in October, and contracts are in place with Lazy Days and the caterers. We already have 64 rigs signed up, 22 pre-paid.

So, we will be at RATS, but not at RIV, sad to say. Our own plans have us in Virginia and the Carolinas prior to that, and a trip back to Missouri is not in the cards.

I doubt we will be missed, but it definitely sticks in my craw!

Don,

I "feel you pain" ... we're scheduled up through the end of September (to be near Philadelphia PA) then planned to meander down to the RIV in "late October" -- but moving it to MO puts another spin on the issue. I'd also do RATS but going back to GA from MO is a lot of extra miles -- that I'd just have to reverse because our next destination was Colorado... <sigh>
