Has a shabbaton DO ever worked? We might as well have a thread DD user meets fellow DD user. At this stage, I still don't see it as being realistic for people to travel to a location for shabbat not for work, or holiday, simply for a meeting.

no one is forcing you to go. if you think its not feasible don't sign up.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I think it is for the 10-11, which is the reason it makes it hard for some people to attend.

Don't worry.  I don't anticipate it actually happening either week.

True that.
I'm around late July - early August, though might be in briefly some time in between now & then.

Place with a few AA flights every day (for enough award availability) + cheap hotels?

Maybe there should be a DO in Israel where you are now?

I can't see a shabatton, but I'm always in for a DO. Feel free to arrange one in the appropriate threads.
