Thread: BACFest 2016

    I think that Boston would be a big draw. I'd use it as the kick off for a New England fall color vacation. Wife wants Canton, OH or Cooperstown, NY. I'm not that big on sports, but either would be different. I agree not to go back to a place we've been. What ever place is decided, there has to be something there to do other than shop and eat. Las Vegas would seem to be a natural place to do this, but no one seems to be interested. Pretty easy place to fly to. Not much in the way of high terrain the valley LAS sits in is big and flat. Oh yeah, Travers City, MI. I've been there in October and it was gorgeous. The town is a bit artsie fartsie, but there is the resort, vinyards, Grand Travers Bay boat cruises (some with entertainment). I might be able to get a short tour of the Coast Guard facility (my son was there for 4 years). If the weather turns sour, there is always snowmobiling, ice fishing and cross country skiing. The seem to have a good amount of festivals during the year, one might coincide with BAC Fest. I would think Green Bay would also have a bit to do there. Milwaukee? There's a possibility, we hit a couple brewery tours and who cares there ain't much else to do. Just about any "Great Lakes" towns would be interesting. Like Dubuque, there are other River Towns. Natchez, MS comes to mind. I stopped at the airport for gas once. Very pretty setting.

    Vegas would be fun. I've never been there. Well I've never been to a lot of the places listed in this thread. Flying to Vegas would be fun though. Lots of scenery and mountains.

    I don't know how many would attend but I'd be interested. This may be something we do in the spring as a Mini-BACFest.

    I have promoted the idea of a miniBACFest in the late spring for a couple of years now. Perhaps as we look at all the possibilities for the next BACFest, we might want to pick out a spring miniBACFest. The spring one would not have to have any BOD or annual meetings. It would be a lot less formal and focus on getting us and our mice together.

    It's hard to beat Asheville NC in the fall of the year. Nothing like Appalachian Mountains when the leaves turn. Not to mention craft brews, lively downtown seen and of course bluegrass everywhere you turn. Most of all some of the best trout fishing anyone could ask for, pretty much all I care about and the bluegrass O' and the beer. You can have the downtown seen.

    I like Asheville! Airport is out a little way from downtown. Side benefit, Marty is missing NC on his map.
