PASS Summit 2013 - A Bunch of Blog Posts Recently

Recently, there have been a number of blog posts about having the 2013 PASS Summit in Seattle or elsewhere.  I had a post in November about the process and some of the major factors that were on my mind.  You can read it here

There is value in moving the Summit to another venue.  There is value in having the Summit in the same location/venue year after year as well.  Many of the posts that I read recently make excellent arguments for each.  As time goes on and you hear another good argument for one or the other, I keep waiting for the definitive argument.  You know that someone will make some obvious point that everyone overlooked, and the decision will be a no-brainer.  Well, I'm not convinced that we will hear that definitive argument ever.

I believe that my post referenced earlier in this blog entry gives you a hint of which way I am leaning, but I emphasize that many factors must be considered in order to make an informed decision not only about the location of the Summit in 2013 but also how that may affect the budgeting aspects of our other support services and offerings.

I don't know that there is one definitive argument that is clearer than the survey results(http://sqlblog.com/blogs/andy_leonard/archive/2010/03/12/on-pass-summit-locations-time-will-tell.aspx), but for those folks who feel that they are unable to attend due to the location, it sure seems like a no-brainer. If you believe that you could reach different members by moving the Summit,  then you see it as a no-brainer too. If you don't believe that it makes a difference, then the argument holds no water.
