    Has anyone heard where the 2009 explorer nationals are going to be held?

    Direct info from Irving, TX... They're having a lot of liability issues. They were set on IFSI again, but some issues came up and they dropped out. So then they looked at Orange County, CA - Even more issues rose. So last I heard - about a month ago - they were looking towards New York. If they wait too much longer, they may not get a good turn-out... Not a whole lot of Posts would be able to afford since they ask for a deposit by December.

    For sure not IFSI! Despite how well things went, IFSI will not hold them unless they allow Cadets to participate. Until that changes, IFSI will not host nationals, I know that for a fact. Other than that I don't know, but LaCrosse would be a great place, good facilities.

    It would be nice if Learning for Life would get there act together. They have had, lets see come October a year and half to make a decision where the 2009 conference will be held. My biggest concern is having ampule time for fundraisers, so the Explorers can attend the conference! I think pressure from the advisors, would kick them into gear!!!!!

    As of now it is not in rochester New York because the college would not allow explorers to room in the dorms in the summer.
