I wanted to start this thread to make sure we choose the best date for VFAT plus future VFAT events.
Like most of you probably know the Official European Championships are held in the same weekend as VFAT now (16/17/18 Nov). Many people going there would also like to see VFAT and maybe our host, Virtual JaBoG32 also wants to go there in the future.
With eye on the future and the significant grow of both VFAT and the European Championship it may be best to change date now.

For this years VFAT there are also 2 teams having problems to fly in this weekend as it is determined now.

IMO shifting VFAT two weeks later would be best (1st&2nd December).

NOTE:
- the weekend after VFAT we got Thanksgiving.
- the 2 weekends before the VFAT there are several real airshows in the US.

I think you mean the first weekend in December?  I would have to see what our group thinks, but I would be game for that!

I'll have to check...

I agree it would work better for future events to host VFAT the first weekend in December, although I cannot say for this year yet??? Everyone has been under the assumption that it will be the third weekend in November and might have other plans (family etc) later on (Thanksgiving plus after?)... I'll have an answer from us by the end of the week.

I think we'll need to settle on a new weekend before the end of September IF in fact we're going to change dates (!!!) (Myself and many of my colleagues bid our schedules for November in the middle of October, so we would need to know ASAP).

As far as I know none of the JaBoG32 will go to Hungary that weekend. So the date is ok for us.

Doing what they are supposed to my friend.  

#7 will be Narrating, and our #8 will be critiquing every little miscue we may have.

Can't wait till the day #7 gets to say: "Goooood afternoon, ladies and gentlemen!"

Re: VFAT dates - So, far everyone in our camp seems to be (leaning towards) pro 1st weekend of December for what it's worth!

I think it is important to keep the date we have now, after talking to our team and discussing it, a couple of us (me included) worked our work schedules around the 3rd weekend in November which is the date that was given to begin with.  Lets change dates and split up the VFAT next year, but lets keep it on schedule for this year.

We can fly anytime, just need to tell us ahead which day(s) to take off work, etc.  :)
