Let's just get this out of the way. There are no votes, your suggestions are completely ignored, preferences don't count for squat and nothing will happen unless you do it yourself. The rallies are NOT put on by ADVRider, there is NO committee that decides this stuff and it ONLY happens if someone actually does it.
Is anyone standing up on their back legs and volunteering to organize next year's rally? GSDude?
If no one volunteers to do it, there won't be a 2008 WestFest anywhere...
If you volunteer to do it, you get to choose where and when.
