My dh's family is trying to plan a family reunion for next year. His mom is #4 of 8 siblings and with their extended family it comes to 75 people. 39 of us are on the west coast in CA, OR and WA. There are 3 in NV, the rest are spread out over the east coast a few in IL, a couple in MI and then PA, GA, VA, FL. You get the idea. The last reunion they had was before dh and I married about 13 years ago, it was in Virginia Beach which was a midpoint for the east coasters. I suggested N Cali, since the most west coasters would be able to attend, but the east coast cousins keep suggesting places like UT, NV, CO, which we would have to fly to then rent a car or drive 2 days both way, thus using up most of our time travelling. Do you think it's unreasonable for me to want it closer to the majority of us, where we could probably all drive within a day versus having to pay extra for transportation? Also, am I out of line to be trying to help with the planning, since I am an IL and not one of the 'blood relations'?
Do any of you have family reunions? Have any of you tried to plan one?
