So what's stopping you?

Post by Keith Holman » Thu Jun 25, 2015 8:59 pm

Every reunion, we go about selecting the site for our next reunion and invariably the discussion goes to why more people don't come.
The discussion mainly takes place among those who DO come so the information is not guaranteed accurate.

So, particularly if you haven't been to a 627 Reunion or haven't been to one lately, what's stopping you?

Just some guesses:

- time/vacation
- money
- apathy.

Also the location, but if you don't attend or, at least, vote for your choice from the list, it may never be in a place that you will be happy with.
We would all be so happy to see more of you attending. We like to catch up on each other's lives, not just talk about "the boat".

Yeah, definitely location. I will be hard pressed to attend when held in one the cities/areas nominated for 2017. What were they again?

edit: nevermind. Keith was kind enough to list them for us in this thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=569

Attended reunions in 2004, 2005, 2007, and 2009. A lack of work seniority prevents me from taking any vacation in June or July. Last minute vacation cancellations by co-workers allowed me to attend in 2007 & 2009 but it was too late for my wife to get the off work time. Since the vacation slots have now been reduced to a single person at a time I have had no opening at all.
