I have no plans to arrange any 2010 gatherings; however, several people have asked me if any are in the works and why no announcements have been made. Thus...:

1 ... What draws your interest in a gathering?

2 ... What keeps your interest in a gathering for you to attend as planned?

3 ... Are you interested in a MidSummer Chitown gathering in Elgin IL, July TwentyTen?


Depending on the responses, I may arrange a July 24 (or 31) gathering, in Elgin IL, for MULTIPLE boards (car- and heart-related, etc.), starting at 11a with a short drive ... and lasting into the evening.



Recent gatherings....

Since we have SOME interest in this, I've spoken with my contact at Steak'n'Shake; we can hold the gathering there again. However ... I'll check out other places along Randall Rd / US Route 20.


FOR NOW...

...if you are interested in a MidSummer Chitown Gathering #3, please speak up NOW...

...save SATURDAY, JULY 24, 2010 ... just in case. My vision for the gathering: start at 11a, with a brief drive, then back to Steak'n'Shake (or gathering restaurant/area) for lunch and meet'n'greet the rest of the day/evening....

Cool, Limey. Let me know if any of the folks form that forum are interested.... Sure would be nice to see a BUNCH of G3ers there....


Speaking of ... if my math serves me correctly, ~40 people from ~15 different groups/boards have indicated an interest in the MidSummer Chitown Gathering #3. Not too bad, but that's about 3 people per board....



IF this happens, it...

...will be at Steak'n'Shake (other restaurants/facilities are in the immediate area if you want to eat somewhere else)

...most-likely will be July 24

...will start ~10:30a, with a brief cruise around some "back roads" in the area starting at 11a, returning to Steak'n'Shake ~noon or 12:30p for lunch and meet'n'greet the rest of the day



If I plan this, I will post a NEW topic in a few weeks..... So, if you're interested ... speak up NOW!!!
