DATE POLL: Illinois Side Event Weekend

Post by John Ketzkorn »

I think for UIUC people, this works best if its after CO, but before school starts. If you are interested in having this be before CO, let me know.

I wouldn't mind this to be in July as well, but really any weekend besides the one right before or after CO would be great.

A July date, the earlier the better, would definitely be better for me.

Mid-July would be the best, but either of the other August weekends would be preferable to the one after CO.

I've added "July weekend" to the poll, if July ends up being a favorite, I'll make a new thead and we'll decide on a specific weekend.

I would strongly prefer this being in August, but I realize I'm likely close to the only one

Any reason why this can't be multiple-select?

Yeah, I should have caught that earlier. This is fixed.

Seems like there's a big group for a July mirror, but I'm assuming if I asked people to settle on one weekend those votes would be split. I'm currently leaning towards August 17th-18th to have a buffer after CO. This has the benefit of giving writers more time to polish their sets and not accidentally landing on the same date as Wustl's NASAT mirror.

I personally would greatly prefer a July mirror since I'll be leaving for Austin in early August, but I am but one person.

This could work to do a Summer Open mirror, since I believe that won't be available until August.

Why not find out by doing a July date poll, or just asking people who voted for July whether they can't make it on any specific weekends?

That was my reasoning. I also assume people wouldn't want this the weekend of July 27th (for the same reasons August 10th doesn't work), so that only pushes the date earlier. Here's a poll for July so we can see what availability looks like.
