Let's select a date that the poll will close.  How about this Friday,
July 13th?

Assuming the locations meet the requirements, I vote for the place
closest to me. I think other people will vote similarly for the place
closest to them. I suggest collecting the zip codes of everyone who
plans on attending, plotting them on a map (using software, if
possible), and then selecting the location nearest to the most people.

If we collect the zip codes, I'll take responsibility for plotting them.

I'll volunteer to bring disposable plates, utensils, and napkins and a
home-made dessert.  I can bring more, but I'd like to give other people
the chance to volunteer first.

If we're don't all need to install the same software on our computers, I
think the rule for having fun is simple: everyone brings things they
think are fun and then tries to persuade other people to play with them.
For example, I'd bring a Frisbee, two decks of cards, some juggling
equipment, and maybe a super-soaker.
