MOBIUS had our eye on hosting the Hack-A-Way for 2019 or any year after 2018 basically. Not to dominate the role of host. One of our goals was to share our love of our town Columbia. And we couldn't do that with the conference for capacity reasons. We believe we could with the Hack-A-Way. We would like to put our hat in the ring for 2019 but it's no biggie to shoot for 2020!

Also - Indiana hosting every other year sounds good to me! +1

While many folks are still en-route home from the Evergreen conference I thought I’d start a conversation about the Hack-A-Way ... for next year!  We’ve planned the year in advance for the event before when it was useful for the host and it may be again.  Evergreen Indiana is interested in hosting in 2019.  As many of you know they were excellent hosts for us in 2016 & 2017 and would like to do it again.  This is a community decision so if there are others interested in hosting in 2019 or 2020 please throw your hat in the ring.  An idea I would like to propose for discussion is leaning on the generosity of Indiana and an offer from them to host every other year.  They are in a fairly central location with a lot of advantages that I won’t elaborate on now though we can certainly can but first I wanted to solicit initial feedback.   So, thoughts?
