It was 10 members to pay, probably a (soft) limit to make sure the DO isn't overcrowded. I'm just asking if there's a significance to the number 15.

Find someone to sponsor Dan's airfare and I'll give them $25.

It doesn't matter to me how you want to work it out.  Like I said before this, I'm happy to fly anywhere if people are willing to cover my expenses.

Expenses for a day trip:
-Parking at the airport in CLE/CAK ($10?)
-Flight (Approx $250)
-Rental car with gas.
-Tolls/Parking (probably can get street parking on a sunday, no?)

I think we should also sponsor Sflyer's expenses, he has very valuable info to share (like the most northern airport on planet earth)

I'd love to meet SuperFlyer, but I'm not paying $50 plus for the privilege (no offense).

This is precisely why sponsoring anyone but Dan is out of the question.

$10 for airport parking?  would it be cheaper to take a shuttle bus to the airport? ;)

if every one donates a few SPG or amex we should have a flight no problem.

I also think there should be some sort of presentation were one of us can maybe speak about something useful, maybe fuel dumping or how to properly use ITA.

Lol...
What do you reckon a 46 mile shuttle from my place to CAK would cost?

Of course I can take a train to CLE, but that would be a $1,023 flight for a same-day turn.

I think we should stick to $25 attendance fee. For all I care Dan can bike to NYC, and pocket my $25.

As for SF (who chose to misconstrue my words), I'd be honored to meet you, SF, but I'm not paying for that honor. Period.

I'm not much of a biker, but what about if I segway?
