Being retired and enjoying towing, I don't find the distance to Ives Run, for example, to be an obstacle. I am primarily a commercial campground user (the first-come/first served non reservation situation drives me nuts) ... so while I find Buttonwood to be a bit salty...not much more than other destination commercial parks. I suspect that if the site is moved from Buttonwood the fall-off in participation would be significant because:

-> Difficulty in assuring group " together" reservations, and
--> Difference in distance for many members, and
--->Increase in towing costs for some will outweigh savings, and
---->Just the loss of a tradition.

I do recognize the loss of our "special" situation at Buttonwood, but tend to think the alternatives tend to have their own unappreciated limitations for a "group appeal".

Just had to sound off. I'm not voting....and will attend wherever it's decided to be. I assume this will be a major source of discussion this coming weekend when most of us are together.

Hi Frank !
Good points, but just wanted to point out that Ive's Run is actually closer for many who have attended Buttonwood in the past (not just us Vermonters-those from Adirondacks / Northern NY, etc.). I think no matter what area is chosen, it will benefit some distance-wise and some will have to travel further. That said, we will attend if it fits in our schedule, same as you. No matter where the M&G ends up ! It's always fun !

Hi Frank,

Great points, as always. We did try to be more conscious with distance from SE PA early on when planning the M&G, since many of the members did come from there. As Debbie pointed out, the event has shrunk some over the years, and those who come now do come from all directions, so the proximity to SE PA isn't as critical.
