I might need to pull out of this thing depending on how schedules line up. While I'd like to see everyone, part of me just wants to get home (or at least partway home, since I plan to do a boatload of clinching both ways) and maximize the amount of time I get to see the family over spring break.
No, you need to be there. I think we're all arriving between 6 and 7.

I definitely won't be there if my 2:00 that afternoon cancels. If I had to choose between anything and spending a night at Duff's, I'd choose Duff's (sorry, guys).

Unless Duff's has to do with the Simpsons or Hilary, I fail to agree.

As with before, I'm looking at a 7pm dinner.  I have classes that morning and will have to make my way down, check in, and possibly help with some of the setup.

I'm fine with the place we were at last year, though I'm open to other suggestions as long as they're in the downtown area (i.e. within walking distance of the hotel).

I was not expecting to ever see a Hilary Duff reference on the forum.   :-D

That being said, I'm officially out. An extra few hours with the siblings wins out. They'd be crushed if I could only spend time with them for one weekend day. If it didn't line up with break, I'd definitely be there.

Any decisions on where we'll be going?  I plan to attend if this is still on.

Oh, it's still on.  Just looking for suggestions for a place...or we can just go back to where we went last year.  Still looking at 7pm.

At this point, we are probably looking at the same place.

Hoping to make it.

And which one is it - for someone who wasn't there last year?

Works for me
I would be interested in carpooling with someone from the greater Troybany area. I can make it wherever around 6:15. I'm replying to Doug with intent, but anyone can claim me.

I can carpool.

I may take advantage depending on when I can get to Albany, given parking will probably be at a premium up in Saratoga.

I didn't get there until around 7 and it ended up taking me about 15-20 minutes to find a parking spot.
