Would there be any interest in having a get together for Chicagoland folks? I live in the far north subburb of Mundelein, but as most, am willing to travel for a get together. Perhaps something along the lines of a meeting over dinner or at a micro-brewery.
Sounds good to me. Live in Crown Point, IN. Near Hammond. I was hoping we could put together a Greater Southern Lake Michigan area meet to include people on the outer fringes like Chuck. I think there are one or two members in the South Bend area also. Some of those members in the CA. Bay Area meet are traveling 300+ miles. Spring time seems to make sense for having a full ODYCLUB meet. By the time things actually get coordinated we'll be knee deep in snow. Also hoping to learn a thing or two from the results of the Bay Area meet.
I'm also in for something smaller, sooner like you guys mentioned.
You might even get someone from farther North. Chicago is only about 7 hours from the Twin Cities. Every once in a while I find myself in the Chicago area with a free weekend day, e.g., November 24 and December 8.
Heck, my doctor regularly travels to Wheaton to see his son play football; goes down and back in the same day.
