Hey Folks. We need some opinions. If we had another Open Access Date for Rhode Island, what date (time of year) would you like to see?

The five standard Open Dates are the Saturdays of Presidents Day, Memorial Day, July Fourth, Labor Day, and Columbus Day.

What other weekend would be good? I doubt we can plan a mid-week Open Date unless our volunteer hosts agreed to take off a day of work, but would a weekday be desired?

Let Dave know via responses to this post or me.

For anyone interested in doing highpoints in winter there is currently only one date, the Presidents Weekend. A second winter date would be nice, and the MLK weekend seems the obvious choice.

The real question is: How many people are interested in highpoints in winter? In my case it is only the New England plus New York ones that I would like to do in winter.

Hey Dan, how did your attempt on Humphreys (and Wheeler, I believe) go?

Since a lot of people get a four-day weekend over Thanksgiving, how about either that Friday or Saturday? Would allow for longer drives to/from RI for folks within intermediate range of RI. (We're in MO, did Jerimoth on the July 4 weekend access date back in 2001. Not in driving range for us on any sort of weekend, but for those in the northeast...)

The response to the initial posting has been underwhelming , I am pushing the thread to the top in the hope that some others may have opinions.

Sometime in August would be nice, as this is a good time to visit New England.

I recommend having the additional open access date not on a holiday weekend. One reason I haven't made it to RI yet is that I have trouble getting away on holiday weekends.

I suggest trying a non-holiday weekend as an experiment.

Could there access to RI highpoint the same weekend as the Club Konvention in New Hampshire in 2005?
