    I think Greenville's the best place, but if it attracts more people in a bigger city, then we should most probably do it there.

    Shall I put in a vote for New York from you (as well as your Greenville vote)?

    I'm not a mod myself (though i was one way back when) so i can't explain their reasoning (not that i can explain the actions of the current mods a large number of the time) - but this kind of thread is better without a poll because with a poll you have a limited number of options to choose from that were selected when the poll was created. Open discussion allows more people to throw out potential ideas and more options to be considered.

    Yeah, I get that but I thought the whole point of THIS thread was to narrow it down.

    I'm going to nominate Atlanta, for a reason familiar to others who've posted. It's closest to me! Also, it's got the Center for Puppetry Arts, which is a great place to visit, with a lot of Henson material and connections. :) :jim:

    I would love for the convention to be held in NYC, its much closer to me than the other places.

    Plus Atlanta is where Steve Witmire is from.

    New York is great, it would probably be easiest for me too, but it's kinda boring! I mean sure, it may be fun, but everything happens here, so it kind of loses some of it's meaning.

    Put me down for Greenville or Atlanta. Sure, Greenville especially would be a bit hard to get to, but it would be worth it!

    New York is my home, and has TONS of Muppet connections. The Muppets are even the ambassadors of New York now.

    Well, since it's
    1-relatively easy to get to (plane-wise)
    2-definitely tied to our shared love
    3-& I think someone else said that we'd have to talk to them anyway...

    what about holding it in Orlando? There is a convention center at the Coronado Springs resort, which means that those flying in could use the Magical Express to get to the facility without renting a car. Families could turn the trip into a vacation easily. It's in the "moderate" category, but the AllStar resorts really aren't far away.
    Sorry to stir the pot :(

    Don't worry about stirring the pot atrane!

    How long do you all think we should run this 'poll'? Till the end of this week?

    P.S. This is my 500th post!
