Phoenix in August?

Who planned the natinals? Isnt it going to be like 120 there about that
time? And why in the middle of nowhere? Its 400 miles from any large
city-LA/SD/ALB/ELP only vegas and tucson are reasonable in size and closer.
This has to ba a joke right?

It isn't 120F inside the convention venue. The people in Phoenix have put on a good show in the past. It isn't that far to some great scenery. Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon are north a short drive. Desert scenery all around. Pima County Air Museum is difinitely worth a look. Stop in Vegas or Laughlin on the way in, go by London Bridge at Havasu City. Coming form the East you have many options. One warning DO NOT leave anything subject o heat damage in the car while you are inside the convention or motel. Or you don't have to go.

Middle of nowhere is a point of view.
There are plenty of things to keep you busy in the Phoenix metro area.
I'll agree that it is going to be hotter than blazes that time of year, that's why I wouldn't be there. Me and heat don't agree at all.
If you want the middle of nowhere try North Central Australia, THAT's the middle of nowhere. I've been there and it wasn't even on the map;-)

Who cares how hot it is. Those of us who live in the steam room belt will welcome a chance to experience some dry heat for a change. We survived Dallas in 2000, and Phoenix looks just as survivable.
The tours look great, and the Diamonbacks have the Marlins in town the 1st few days, and the Braves on Friday&Saturday.
As a lifelong Cubs fan, I plan to go and hurl obsenities at the Florida fish for refreshing the Satanic Goat curse on the Cubs in last years NLCS. The Braves are my 2nd team, and I plan to chach the game Friday night.

A good suggestion.
I don't know if I can make it, but at least this one is drivable for me, unlike the last nominally western Nats (Chicago). So what if it's hot in the summer? I found Florida to be pretty darned uncomfortable during that Nats and enjoyed the contest and Disney World and all the rest of it anyway. I consider anything over 88 degrees and 40% humidity a heat wave anyway, and those of us not sensible enough to rely on air conditioning can at least soak in pools and consume copious quantities of cold beverages. IN the meantime, It's nice to have a contest that's really in the west again.

I understand that August is the "humid" season in Arizona. It makes sense, depending on where the High parks itself over Tx-Ok area, since that is what will be carrying the moisture over New Mexico/Arizona and up and around the plains.
Besides, the convention is held indoors, not outside. :-)

Agreed, but that does not change it being in the middle of nowhere.

Close but no cigar! AzHoser's stuff is not to be let into the convention center and will be displayed in the alley out back.

I got news for you about humidity, When your awaiting judgemant on your model, as the whether the Mormons will let you win or give that award to thier pals, that sweat from your balls that will be running down your legs will increase the humidity levels right up there to Mississippi on a hot summer day!~

yes, just like your Wife has a new spot to sell her pussy. Oxy, why do you insist on being such a rather large dick? I know it must be some form of hiding an insecurity or defect. Perhaps Mommy didnt give you enough tit?

Melnick came back with his best effort and babbled:
1. She doesn't sell it, wouldn't make any money with you taking all of her customers. 2. No "y", dropped it years ago. 3. Thanks for the compliment, you've been peeking in windows again? 4. Only insecurity that is bothering me now is the lack of a good Presidential candidate in the US this time around. As for Mommy, she was a tough old Gal who would probably have slapped your silly ass for potty mouth.
Now go pull A Lert.

Don't blame the Phoenix boys for that one, dip-wad. IPMS/USA guidelines state it must be held in July or August.
