Just curious. Did the 2005 Gathering decide on the place for the 2006 Gathering?

Why not have the gathering consecutive with ESA 2006 at Snowbird/Alta? Might do something for attendance...

I heard Yreka, California so we could ski Mt. Shasta and Mt. Ashland.

Si,

the inimitable SCSA, a/k/a PMTS Wacko, is responsible for the '05 location.

Since he was just about the only one to orchestrate and attend, I believe Mr Ryan should have sole dictatorship over location for '06. It should be wherever Mr Ryan wants us to go. That's only fair.

The most honorable Mr. Ryan declined the role of Chief Dictator of Gathering 2006. However, he has been a key part of the soon-to-conclude virtual voting dinner

And yes, the time and place will make it easy for the ESA crowd (tease, tease...)

Working ESA and Gathering in together will help attendence. There was an excellent turnout the prior year at JH, I remember there were at least 6 of us who were able to attend the JH Gathering in 2004 because it worked in with ESA, that was out of a total of around 30 attendees, not a huge percentage. But it sounds like 6 extra attendees would have more than doubled this years attendence, what a shame after Ryan put all the time and effort he put into organising it.

My vote is to have it after ESA Snowbird 2006 within travelling/driving distance of SLC - plenty of ski areas to chose from. Does not have to be in Utah, even Steamboat is within driving distance of SLC. I guess the first step is to find someone willing to donate thier time to organise.

Two places to consider: Steamboat. Solitude. I've always enjoyed both solitude and Solitude, and it's so close to the ESA but in a slightly different place. And Steamboat is another place that has something for everyone. I could easily be enticed to either place.

Soli, it's friendly and relatively inexpensive, and I bet we could get a good group rate at the Solitude Inn since we know the manager.

I do not have a vote, but if I did...Steamboat. Of course if was in Summit County CO I do have a spare room. Sure was a good time at Loveland. About 30 people showed up for the gathering there. Something to be said for easy access.
