Any thoughts on where this may be this year. I know that in the past there has been some friction about not starting the thread early enough for everyone to get in a bid. I just want to throw it out there early. Anybody got any suggestions. I can稚 host in Decatur but I would like to schedule my vacation asap. Any thoughts? cheerstevo

I知 in, where ever it is. The last 2 RBWG were a blast. Wish I could have made it to the last SG in LA, it sounded like they had a great time.

If I was sure uncle Sam would let me be home during the beginning of 2013. I would say Anchorage, I知 confident we could provide the winter in the gathering.....Shawn

Someplace on the East coast would be great since the summer gathering was in CA.

I think this one should be in North Dakota.

My vote for this year is St Louis-the town is going through a massive beer revolution. Go figure, it started to happen right after i left there in 2009! even though its a little more north, the weather isnt all that cold.

Runner up cities:

Dallas/Ft Worth
Tampa

If we decide on ST Louis, i will definately help organize this event. I know all the good places there (lived there for 4 yrs)
