It's time to start talking about picking a weekend for next year's Valley of Fire atlatl event, so we can get the date requests into the park.  

Let's hear your votes.  

The best weekend for us is the weekend of March 24th and 25th, since our kids will be out of school.  I believe this also corresponds to the weekend we held it this year.

Also, if you haven't joined the Facebook group, "Valley of Fire Atlatl Event", you are welcome to discuss this there as well.

Don't be shy!  We need to get the dates in by the beginning of December!

My vote is for the week after, weekend of March 30th. Following the normal Thursday-Tuesday schedule, that would be March 29-April 3rd, as I plan on being out of town the weekend prior. I could consider cancelling my trip if the date selected ends up being the weekend of March 24th, but I'd prefer not to. 

Ken, I requested to be added to the Facebook group. Also, maybe a poll on here could help people express which weekend they want?

Good idea on the poll, Angelo.  I added you on FB, too.

Regarding the last weekend in March, it is problematic for some, in that Easter falls on that weekend this year...  In addition, Mario is attending a wedding that weekend.

I sure hope we can all attend!

I totally forgot about Easter. March 17-18 works for me instead!

We've had a request from a long time attendee that we pick a date ASAP (within the next two weeks) if possible, so they can plan their vacation time.  

Going by here and the FB page, it is looking like the weekend of March 17th is a strong contender.  My family can make that weekend work, if necessary.

Please get your comments in...

I think you might just have to call it at March 17th if there are no other votes by the end of the week.
