There are several things to consider when looking at dates for a gtg.
Some people would be excluded if it is a Monday thru Thursday event. Not all people can take a whole week off from work. This way people that can take a whole week off can travel out on tuesday / wednesday, and travel back home on sunday / monday. (take off tuesday through monday)
Those unable to take but a day or 2 off work would still be able to make it to most of the event.
Tentatively the event would end in by mid afternoon on Saturday, allowing for some travel saturday, and sunday if they needed to be back monday morning.
I dont mean this in a bad way, but there is no way to cover all the possible scenarios. No set days, place, scheduled events, etc. are gonna be good for everyone. The goal is to make a middle ground. That is what we will attempt to do. It is going to be a several day event, which will allow for a little flexability as well.
Again I say Understand that the whole of this gtg will be geared at making this as enjoyable for everyone as possible. That is why I have not just arbitrarily thrown down days, and place, and schedule. We are weighing many factors, and doing a little research. As well as talking with some experianced people in similar fashions. Please just be patient. Thanks for your comment.
