    It's official, everyone! We have a deposit paid, and dates in hand so we're ready to announce :D Mark your calendars and save the date for:


    NOV. 11-14, 2022


    ANNI 2022 Will be taking us back to where we wanted to go pre-covid, and the great state of Tennessee!! We will be staying at the Fall Creek Falls State Park https://tnstateparks.com/parks/fall-creek-falls which is about an hour north of Chattanooga, or 2 hours southeast of Nashville. We'll be staying in cabins right on the lake where you could literally fish from the back porch if you wanted to! There's amazing hiking in the area, and the hike to the Falls themselves is either an easier .4 mile walk to the base, or 2.7 miles to the top. Either way, the view looks amazing. https://tnstateparks.com/parks/activity-detail/fall-creek-falls-hiking

    We don't have a ticket price yet, since they just opened up a new lodge and restaurant and so are still working on pricing, etc but we hope to have that information for you in the first quarter of 2022. Registration will open in March or April.

    By the time we get there, it will have been more than 2 years since we've met in person, and I just can't wait to see you all!! :grouphug

    Also I forgot to mention, that the lovely @Erin al'Denael will once again be serving as our Local Liaison!

    Secondly, I'm about to go on my first vacation away from my state in more than 2 years starting tomorrow - so! If you have any questions about the location, please address them to Erin or if you have questions about the event then @Melisande Arneil is your gal! Option c, is you can save them for when I get back in a couple weeks :p

    Does USA not have any lock downs, or border restrictions between states at all? Damn.

    Is it possible to request a room that only has one bed?

    Makes me wonder if anyone on the committee paused to ask, “Will this location be safe and welcoming to the most vulnerable of our members or will their basic civil rights be violated?”

    Excited to be able to attend so close to home. Fall Creek Falls is gorgeous and will be an amazing place to see those who attend.

    I definitely understand people not feeling welcome. I will say that an injunction was filed in July of this year and a federal judge stopped the bathroom signs law from going into effect. There are also multiple state and federal lawsuits challenging the law that are pending in courts now.

    AAAHHHHH! This makes me so happy! :joy We're hoping to be moved and settled into our new place in TN in summer 2022 so this will be PERFECT. :D

    That really sucks, and I'm very sorry to hear it. Hopefully the challenges to the law that @Braedan Fearghal mentioned will succeed between now and then. :hug

    We will also be in a private area with private bathrooms such that the “laws” can FOAD. We can’t control what a state does, but we did arrange it such that we will be able to care for our own.

    If I recall correctly, it’s sweater and/or light jacket weather depending on your cold tolerance. Most of SDS would probably be is short sleeves because they’re crazy. (Thinking Dom, Sean, and Soro in particular). Like most places, it can be crazy. I’ve seen 70 degrees at Thanksgiving, and 30 at Halloween.
