    I put my vote in there. Would really like to attend, even a slight chance of bringing the wife with her TW. Trying to find the right spacing between events with R4R weekend and the next "please please please can I leave you home with two kids and go ride?" request. Summer is too damn short around here.

    I voted for June 22-24. The other date is over father's day, and my wife won't be impressed if I am gone that weekend.

    The pole is open till May 3rd but the split is large enough that it will most likely be 22nd to the 24th.

    Assuming we're locked into the later weekend, I'm asking for that Saturday off.
    Gotta get these requests in early before we get a supervisor :lol3
