Tappan Zee Meet
« on: May 13, 2016, 05:59:29 PM »

I'm still working out how to make this happen, but I'd like to host a special Tappan Zee Bridge construction meet this summer. It would pretty much just be the bridge if things go as planned - there would be a site orientation, then a tour, and maybe a presentation to go with it (before or after). Since I haven't worked out the details, I can't promise anything, but please let me know what day(s) work best for now, and I'll keep this updated.

Interested; as of right now, I'm free any weekend that isn't the New Haven meet.

Disregard one vote for 7/30.  I put that in before realizing we're going to a concert that weekend.

Also, my wife is trying to get me to take part in Ride the Dragon, a charity event on Lake Champlain.  Even if I don't participate, I'll be supporting her, so that rules out 7/16 and 8/6 for me.  As a side note, if anyone's interested in coming up to Burlington on 8/7, that's the day of the charity event.

Not going to vote on any dates, but I'd be game for this if life circumstances continue to work in my favor. Seems to me there may have been a conflict with some other meet(s) in those dates but I can't be certain of that. This might might be my opportunity to finally get Suffolk and Nassau counties and finish off New York.

Tentatively for me, any date that is not 7/9.  Of course, I could easily adjust this.  I could do this along with finishing the clinching of I-78 and US 22 east of PA 33 and maybe some other stuff.

Not voting because at this point I do not plan on travelling to the northeast during that time. Also I plan to cross the Tappan Zee bridge for the first time in nearly 20 years in about 3 weeks when I travel from central PA to CT for a toy convention so I plan to take it in and get some pics then.

I voted only for 8/6, the only date where I don't yet have a schedule conflict. But I'm a maybe at best even for that date.

Anything that isn't the last weekend in July would be a no-go for me since it's a busy month since I'm travelling to Maine twice (once for the 4th of July with my family and again for my 21st in Portland). August is better for me.

As of now, and depending on when dgolub's CT meet is scheduled; my available dates are July 9, 30 & August 6 & 13.

Note: I forgot to enter Aug. 6 when I casted my vote so add +1 for that date.

I went ahead and voted for 8/6, the next weekend is Steel City Con near Pittsburgh which I do plan on going to but there is a small chance if the meet is on 8/6 I MAYBE could swing it

I'm relatively close and I'm a sucker for construction projects, so I'm in. As of now, all of the dates work, but July 30 is not preferable due to the TRB paper deadline being the following Monday.

There is no opportunity for a site tour, unfortunately. We could theoretically rent a boat for $1,000. Given the options, I'm cancelling the meet, since there is nothing I can show you that you can't see yourself otherwise.
