Long time no see, everybody!
Vivian and I had a great time at the cookout in Nashville last year, and since it sounds like there's some doubt as to who might host it in 2010, we'd like to offer to have it at our place in Omaha. It would be much more low-key than in years past, without renting hotel ballrooms to host everybody, but we'll open up our home to as many as we can (comfortably) fit. We could also rent some space at a nearby park for some outdoor grilling, and there are plenty of things to do around town, including a few museums, the Henry Doorly Zoo, and more.
We'd plan on a four-day weekend at the start of June, from Thursday, June 3 to Sunday, June 6. I can reserve a block of rooms at a nearby hotel once we get a tentative headcount and plan other things as we go. Who's up for a cookout in Corn Country?
