UPDATE: the 3 1/2 month blackout is working out fantastically, especially with KU's help last night. There's still time for others to jump on the bandwagon who may want to avoid this time of year, just let me know. =)
Also, -shameless plug- if you're ever near the Denver area, make the 45 minute trip north to Ft. Collins to the New Belgium Brewery and take the tour. Screw Disney World, NBB is the happiest place on earth!
