its about time for a meet-up I think :D

When and where is the question.

We could always go downtown for a walk then to the park or Navy Pier, maybe Sears Tower (or whatever they changed it to).

I'd probably get a room downtown so we could even do a 2 day thing. Maybe even have a strobist type thing at the hotel.

Who's in

Hawk, Curtis, Becky, Dilorenzo, ERapczak, Chris, Gconda, Ayman86, Cassie?

And yes, I'm in. How about April 17th or 24th. We've had really good luck around that time in the past.

I've got a meetup already on the 24th, and the 18th. May would be better for me, and a bit warmer for the littlest one. He's 11 weeks old now, so really want warmer weather if the family is going along.

Hey guys, wow it's been a while huh? You know I was just thinking about this very thing not too long ago. I hate to say it but I haven't picked up the camera in months and I've all but abandoned the forums, only stopping by to browse from time to time. I think it's time I get to it and renew my love for this hobby. As far as the dates, unfortunately I already have plans for the 17th and I'd really like to pull my Harley out of storage by the last week of April but I think I can stand to wait another week if it means hanging out with some old friends. As with Hawk, May would probably be better but I can make the 24th work if that ends up being the set date. Hope to see you all soon.

Eric

hey, good to see you all.

Im in for whenever, April and May sound like a ways off to me but if thats the soonest then Im in. We can take some sort of poll from this thread as to a specific date.

Eric I know how ya feel after my 3rd back surgery i havent shot much of anything :cry: A few headshots here and there but i havent really been able to do any type of outing.

I look foward to the meetup whenever it is.

Hey folks!
Thanks for the head-up Mike!

Currently Becky and I own two houses, are trying to get one fixed up to live in and get the other one fixed up to sell.

And it's an election year and I have an opponent.

So basically, all the time I have that's not spent politicing is spent on home maintenance. So the chances of us doing a day trip anytime soon aren't too great.

My Chicago Area POTN web page (link in sig) has email addresses, so you might start there to try to generate some interest.

Have fun!

gotcha- the server was slow to show you as a new member. I'll be at the Hells Angels shoot, not sure what else after that.
