If the timing's right, I'm down for either Chicago or St. Louis.

Bump.

Hey, what's going on? I'm trying to figure out my summer schedule and make sure I'm around for this. Any ideas when?

Actually, that's not a bad idea. About three years ago, we had a little mini confluence at my place (back when I had only 12). Only got about five guys show up, but we had a great time for the afternoon. Bill Henshell came up from Chicago, and Ted Williams came from near Minnesota, IIRC. Then two cheeseheads and me.

I was looking into getting free space in the community room of a bank in Oak Creek, south of Milwaukee near the airport. I could get the room on a Saturday afternoon and maybe on Sunday if needed, but I would have to leave it up to each attendee to find accommodations. It would be about 1.5 hours from Chicago, and about the same from Madison; about a half hour from my place.

But it seems that the Chicago dudes were working on something, so I'll sit tight for now.

Gang -

Life is intruding again with serious family medical issues, and I'm not sure how much time I'll have to organize for now. If someone wants to take the ball on this I'd be grateful...

I'm in from St Paul even though I'm currently Rick-less. I really enjoyed the first Milwaulkee get together a few years ago.

Well Paul it looks like Chicago won't be happening any time soon (sorry to hear about family medical issues, Ken). Milwaukee is only another 90 minute to 2-hours away from St Louis by car. If you do plan something up your way I'd be inclined to come.
