    1. Done. It was discussed and nailed down about a few months ago.

    2. There will be at least three rigs up and running at once. I do have a finished basement which could house a few more, but then we run into a few accomodation issues... I don't have an elevator.

    3. A whole bunch of gear ... I'm not wading through all the pages, but it has been discussed.

    4. There are several hotels close by, anything you find on the internet(by doing a search) in Bloomington is going to be close. If you find some in Normal, there will be a little more driving of maybe a few miles. Anything off of "Veteran's Parkway" will be your best bet.

    Anything else I'm missing? I believe everything has been discussed, but if anyone has any questions please feel free to PM me or Halo.

    Too lazy to read through it? I DID read through this CF of a thread and the REASON I made that post (about a month ago, I might add) is because A) it is a cluster and B) I'd like to see you guys have a good event. I'm actually about 75/25 on going.

    1. The date was NOT set it stone
    2. A lot of things had been discussed but the list of definitives was pretty short.
    3. See #2
    4. Well that's just great. How about for the folks that haven't the foggiest idea of what's decent, what areas to avoid etc etc. If you are going to host this event, be prepared to do a little legwork. For a good example, go back and look at the information that Mark provided about the Balitmore area for MDPF '05.

    I'm not trying to be an *******, but I've hosted two of these events (and would like to do at least one more) and I have a pretty good idea of how to pull of a good time. One of the things that you've got to realize that if you want participation, you've got to have your collective **** together which, when I made the post, didn't seem to be the case.

    Personally, I want to come...however speaking for myself and for the feedback I got from folks during the run-up for CPF '04, it's hard to commit to the expense of airfare, hotels and rental cars etc unless there are concrete details.

    Sorry if that gets sand in your panties but I was asked for my input and I gave it.

    That sucks. I was looking forward to meeting both of you in person. We made a rookie mistake. Next year(?) will go much smoother. I'd like to say thanks to both of you for all your help. I appreciate it! :)

    I have a (?) in the official thread because I won't know until sometime in April if I will be able to attend; seems like I'll need to travel in May, and don't have firm dates yet. I'll do everything I can to be here; I have some influence on the schedule, so I'm 95% sure I will be able to make it....but cannot commit yet.

    Victor,

    No worries, if things change....I'll do the best I can to attend but just not looking good in that timeframe.

    Anything I can do from my end to help, lemme know.

    Okay, got the PM.

    I can't commit to any dates as a stated earlier, and I would just need to drive down and back home again anyways. I didn't realize there was a capacity limit (maybe I didn't read that before). So, in order to allow someone else to get a spot reserved, I'll back out for now. If something opens up around the time of the gathering, then I'll go if I can make it.

    No, I know you do, but since space is restricted to a small number of folks I figure I shouldn't be on there when I know I can't commit to anything. :)

    Trust me, this kind of schedule sucks for everything, especially vacations. :(

    Victor, still checking those dates against my calendar. So far so good.......I think . Sorry to see so many people having to drop out, was looking forward to meeting some of you. Still plenty of meet-n-greet to go around. Will Polk Paul and AL still be able to make the new dates?

    I know, my wife works in retail. Damn near impossible to plan anything unless you do it waaaaay in advance.

    A few people are up in the air, including you. I'm not going to 86 anybody until we draw close and I have to or I get a confirmation that they can't make it. :)

    It will be a good time :) Like I said before we (Mike & I) made a rookie mistake. :o If everyone can't attend this year I'm hoping there will be a Chicagoland PF '08 to look forward to. I can guarantee it if we win the lottery tomorrow night! ;) :D

    Brett has high standards and I'm not aware of being gay so that would never happen.

    on the upcoming fest!

    Sorry to hear your Friday off isn't gonna happen.

    My Friday the 18th off is based on what happens that week. I'd be working into Saturday morning if things don't go well. As it is, Victor is bringing a stick to poke me with in case I make it Friday and nod off into dreamland. I'll be loading up and leaving right after I get off work Friday morning so no sleepy time. Gonna caffeine up and tough it out.
