    PLEASE CONTINUE VOTING IN THE NEW DATE POLL

    As most of you know, there have been some lengthy discussions about our MP Kiva DO. We've pretty much narrowed it down to Feb/March 2012, in San Francisco.

    Please indicate in this poll your desired date(s). The DO will probably be over a weekend, with either a Friday or Monday included so that we can meet with Kiva as well.

    Obviously, if a particular date works better for Kiva then that will probably take first priority.

    We will try and make it no matter what weekend it is. It may be a nice first trip for the little one.

    If I can make it, it will be the weekend. Missing Monday through Friday is not possible for me at work.

    Not sure of my schedule yet but will try to keep dates open. First weekend is definitely out for me, and prefer Friday afternoon/evening through Saturday midday.

    I just voted for 17 Feb and 2 Mar. On 23 - 26 Feb there is a knitting convention in Santa Clara that I would love to attend. If we have it on the dates I voted for I can incorporate attending our Do with my love of knitting and some sightseeing in between. I can cope with 24 Feb, it just means I won't be at every event.

    At the moment I'm on contract with work and they are talking about making me permanent :). I won't have too much leave then so this plan would be ideal. I'll tell them when they offer me permanency that I need these dates off. They really seem to like me. Today I stuck around an extra 40 minutes and solved a problem which will make tomorrow run smoothly.

    What are San Francisco hotel prices like? I'd love it if we can keep it under $200 a night. After gate crashing a FT* Do in Adelaide last year I know how much fun it is for everyone to stay at the same place.

    Probably about that. I generally look in the $150-$200 in SF.

    You were at OzFest? Did we meet? :eek: (Sorry if we did, I suck with names and handles) :p

    San Francisco hotels are available for your preferred dates under $200. I would like 2 March OK, but it will be a problem for me in Feb. I'll vote for 2 March now.

    SF hotels will prob be a little less given it is Feb or Mar, not prime tourism season. Would also be nice if we can ask a hotel if they would give a nice group rate!

    There are some quite good chances for that once we have firm dates and probable numbers. I have volunteered to deal with that unless somebody actually in SF would prefer to do it.

    As Kiva is involved in this DO, perhaps they have contacts with hotels to get favorable rates.

    I'm very supportive of Kiva but probably will pass.
