The MidSummer Chitown Gathering lasted 3 years.

A record-high 65 people attended the first, 07/26/2008:

A record-low 16 people attended the final, 07/24/2010:
http://picasaweb.google.com/knightfan26917/3rdAnnualMidSummerChitownGathering#slideshow/5497685409301953362


Meanwhile, I witnessed regional groups/organizations have successful events throughout the year, with, in all cases, people traveling HOURS to attend.



So ... new for 2011 ... four (4) SATURDAY "MEET 'n' GREETS" in THIS general area.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS TO JOIN US!
It's good to meet new people, see old friends, keep in touch, and network.

Since these "Meet'n'Greets" do NOT HAVE FEES, you can attend FOR LESS $ than REGISTRATION COSTS of some car shows/events.



PLEASE advise if you plan to attend; I need to tell the restaurants/businesses how many people to expect.
