    I'm open to suggestions on when to have one, but it will have to be a ways away, timewise. I won't be able to do it anytime soon, because of some private issues at this time.

    The Chicago audio fest is coming up in mid-October at the Homewood Suites in Schaumburg. They have a website up and I'll post it as soon as I get home from work. This might be a good chance for Chicago area CP members to get together!

    Sounds like it's worth a try. I know I'm pretty busy in October, but maybe something could be worked out :)

    That might just be the way to get together. There would definitely be more gear to drool over there. :D

    Hey, I think it's a great idea. It's too short notice for me. I have pretty solid plans that weekend. When it was first mentioned I knew this was going to be a problem. Oh well have fun...there will be other opportunities for me to meet some of you.

    H9 - Looks like you and SCompRacer are out on this. Hopefully this will be available next year. If we have more time it'll be easier to organize. I'll just have to visit with the nearest CP members one on one until next year or until we figure something else out. ;)

    Okay, let's get some clarification here. What is everyone interested in, the audio show in Chitown or a gathering at a member's home? If it's the latter, I'll start looking into a date/time that's convenient enough to get the maximum amount of members to attend.

    As I stated a post or two ago, It'll take me awhile to get all the logistics in order and to get some personal matters finalized.

    I'd go for either. One person needs to take charge and get this party started. I can't host as I don't have the room. If we go for the latter we've got time to put it together. If it's audiofest we need to move fast and so far two locals can't make it. Right now I'm not looking to the Audiofest - I'd rather be able to get as many people together as possible at one time that is good for everyone involved.

    Bringing this subject back.........

    I know summer might be difficult for many, but if everything goes as planned, I could host a gathering the weekend of June 11-12. It's only going to be the dog and me at home.....

    Let's call this an "Interest Check"......

    Yeah I'll throw the hat in, as this is an interest check. If we can pick a date to work for eveyone and do it a few months early we shuld be good to go.
