Just to summarize the places that have been thrown around in any sort of fashion from the previous thread:

Atlanta, GA
Austin, TX
Los Angeles/Orange County, CA
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN
New Orleans, LA
Phoenix, AZ
Richmond, VA
San Diego, CA
San Francisco, CA
Tampa, FL
Tucson, AZ

Some are unlikely due to lack of local presence (e.g., Atlanta), but left them on the list anyway.

Let's go Richmond! That's probably the only one I could make right now. Off chance I could make Minneapolis/St. Paul.

I am exited to see the proposals. Now that I know how much work goes into a gathering. Good luck folks

They all sound like they could be great cities for it, but I'm holding out hope for Richmond, or someplace else less than 8 hours driving from me.

Lots of people like the RIchmond idea, but it would have to be planned by out of towners. I'm now 1000 miles away, not 60. Tia, Kinz and Butters are there (all awesome people) but they have busy lives. Good idea, and I'll plan one if I'm ever back there, but it looks like this is not the year.

DC on the other hand...
