For those curious about dates, I'll probably decide on a date sometime in April or even May of next year. I just announced dates this far out just to be on the safe side, though I was too early.

No plans have changed, by the way; I'll probably revive this thread sometime in May, to finalize plans and ask for scouting help.

Dead malls sound interesting; I'm interested in Monroeville's solely because of the novelty.

If this meet goes forward and actually happens next July/August (if possible I will be there), there are multiple dead malls worth checking out in the area after the meet:

Northway Mall is no longer dead.  It's VERY alive again.  Tons, and tons of new stuff there.

Indeed, it is a thriving mall once again after years of decline and neglect.

There needs to be a tie-breaker vote in order to decide between August 10th and August 17th.
I wasn't aware this was your meet.
True, but it shouldn’t sit there like that with a tie. But the host can simply cast a tiebreaker vote whenever they feel ready to.
You do realize that this suggested dates for this meet is well into next summer (9 to 10 months from now)?  Not deciding on an actual meet date until sometime next year (around springtime) isn't going to make-or-break this meet IMHO.
Yes, I was just assuming that things would be decided soon enough. Sorry.

This. IMO, we don't need a solid date until late winter even if we have people flying in. It's not like flights to Pittsburgh or nearby major airports (of which there are several) are hard to come by.

We would be flying in if and when the plans for this meet are finalized, and that is if we are able to attend in the first place. Just assumed that the date would be finalized soon enough. Sorry.

Yeah I would have announced a selection of dates at least somewhat closer to the best possible time to host the road meet. That sounds good with us, even though we’re not sure yet if we’re going to this road meet or not. Indeed they do, Monroeville may work out for post-meet.

It's not like flights to Pittsburgh or nearby major airports (of which there are several) are hard to come by.
Out of curiosity, what other nearby airports are you thinking of and how far are such from the Greater Pittsburgh area?  Depending on where one is flying from; PIT has a greater variety/choice of carriers (including JetBlue & Southwest) than it did when it was a hub for then-US Airways prior to the early 2000s.

Spirit also flies into/out of [Latrobe/Westmoreland County]/Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, although the routes are somewhat limited as are the departure and arrival times.
