Newer, better, and one week earlier!
September 27 - September 30
This decision was made after a long discussion at our 2018 planning retreat. Two deciding factors emerged: 1, all of the Team Lead volunteers could attend on the last weekend in September, not all of them could attend the first weekend in October, and 2, the weather.
Those of us who live in the Midwest understand that the weather in late Sept/early October varies a great deal, and making the event a week earlier slightly increases the odds we get warmer temps and less rain, but as always, prepare for the worst so you can hope for the best!
