I'll second that emotion- this was an outrageous event, from the boxes to the people to the organizers. 3 days was SUCH a tease- I can think of about 50 people without even trying that I'd like to hit the trails with some more- unfortunately most of them are on the other side of the country!

Fall being the key word here.
Anything in July or early August might very well force people to choose between an East Coast event and LBCon.

Fall never being my word . . . it leaves out all the teachers and most of the kid boxers who have to be in school. LBCON is in July . . . why not late August? Other vacations vary nationally, even regionally . . . We already had to lose out on Live & Breathe (and I do understand why) but let's try not to do that again!

there are a ton of eastern schools that start in early august, so that wouldn't solve the problem of teachers and kids in school, unfortunately.

Late August still could leave out lots of boxers. School starts around here (Asheville, NC) by Aug. 15th.

The Adirondacks would be great for a location. I've only been there once in my life and loved it.

Part of the reason that Live and Breathe was in the fall was because all of the camps that are viable for something of this nature all full all summer long. AND if you plan it the same year as LBCon, you're going to be making people choose between them, even if they are in different months. People from the West Coast are going to be very unlikely to fly east twice in the same year.

Indeed...unfortunately...that is true

LBCon

for some reason I thought it would NOT be next year precisely for this reason!! An event of this magnitude takes lots of time to plan...I understand they worked on Live & Breathe for almost 2 years & look how wonderful it turned out!!!

Not my idea, just my response to someone else's idea. If you want an East Coast event, St. Louis is not East Coast. It was picked to be a central area. If people want only one major event, then LB Con is it for 2009. I know I'd have liked to go west, but I couldn't go in September with school, although as I said, I understood why Sept. was chosen. Regardless, there are always great events everywhere. We would love to get out beyond the Northeast -- maybe we can this year!

Speaking as a West-Coaster who would LOVE to come to L&B East. Please do not have it the same year as LBCon! I would have to choose between the two and how could I possibly live with my self then? ;-)

I believe that Chadams planning for LBCon will also be two years in the making.

Agreed. Many of us would have to choose and I'm in the NE (or close enough). I believe LBCon was centrally located on purpose so that everyone would go.

As this "hobby" grows, and friendships form, HUGE events will experience some growing pains. Lots up for discussion; Maybe figure out some rotating system going forward?

Okay - everyone - step away from the edge.

Maybe we should let Live and Breathe settle before we start rooting around to try and plan the next big event.
