I have been thinking about this for a long time. TIMS is a loosely knit group of people with the commonality of MS. I thought it would be nice if we all got together. My thought was to plan a get-together in Naples, FL, perhaps for a weekend. I think the best time to do this would be next March, 2009. It would allow those of you located in the cold weather to get a break from it and come to where it is warm. It could be scheduled so that it would be during spring break to accommodate those with children. If planned far enough in advance it would allow folks to budget and make plans.
If there is interest I will make arrangements with a hotel (hopefully on the beach) for rooms. If there are enough people I could probably get a discount. I may even be able to arrange for a couple of speakers. For those of you not in the United States, it is a great time to visit-the exchange rate is favorable!
Let me know who would be interested in doing this. It would be a lot of fun, lots of sunshine (therefore vitamin D!) and maybe educational too!
