    Exclamation Poll: When to hold the next ALL-TYPES-OF-ART a-thon?

    Our first All-Types-of-Art a-thon (ATART)was so much fun, there have been an overwhelming number of requests to do another. I'd like to get the dates on the calendar so we all know for potential scheduling of other events.

    NOTE: YOU CAN MAKE MORE THAN ONE CHOICE

    The idea behind the ATART was for those of us unable to attend the AFA gathering in Indy to have the same sense of connection and joy of sharing art that the AFA-ers were having. So in my humble opinion, our summer ATART should be scheduled when the AFA gathering is rescheduled.

    My suggestion for our next one is Sept 18 - 20. Thinking quarterly, the date is three months from our first ATART... and I don't think I have anything else that weekend… at least that I know of right now.

    So following the three month rule from our first one, it would Sept, Dec, March, June.

    Another suggestion was Aug, Nov, Feb and May, due to the holiday mail mess.

    I've put a couple of options up... so folks can give us their opinion. I’ve picked a few dates open for me (yes, I’m selfish, I want to play too) and also for future dates.

    Note I'm scheduling around the Zentangle-a-thons, collage-a-thon and melt-a-thon that have already been scheduled on the a-thon calendar http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4712

    Aug 28 – 30, 2009
    Sept 11 – 13, 2009
    Sept 18 – 21, 2009

    Future date options:
    Dec 4 - 6, 2009
    March 12 – 14, 2010
    June – weekend of AFA gathering

    Nov 20 – 22, 2009
    Feb 26-28, 2010
    Weekend of AFA gathering

    If you have other suggestions, please list them here.

    I voted too I would do my best to play whatever the dates were chosen - as I know anything in Dec is likely to be a NO NO for me - but doesn't mean other folks can't play. Everyone has "awkward months" I'm sure.

    So many votes! Good! Everything else will fit fine but we'll have independence day parties Dec 6th and my mother of low will have her birthday parties Mar 14th, means that Dec 4 - 6, Mar 12 – 14, are not the best days. But they are OK too. I can play then too but can make less art.

    I voted but I'm not sure it really matters to me. I'll try to join in when ever you decide to have it.

    Well... it's looking like August 28-30 will be our next All-types-of-art a-thon. I'll give it one more day and post to the calendar tomorrow evening.
