Hey all!

Now that the holidays have passed and schedule have hopefully settled, is there any interest in a local get together? I had the pleasure of meeting jcavenaugh in the not so distant past, and would like to do so with more of the fine people that frequent these boards.

Just tossing the idea out there, and if there is interest, we can plan a bit more formally. It's February, after all, and the cain fever is hitting pretty hard.

I am in the west Chicago burbs, but locaation can be set by convenience for the group.

let me know what you think.

Brandon

Brandon,

Great idea and you can count me in!! I'm in Arlington Heights and willing to meet anywhere.

Cheers,
John

I live 2 miles from bf.
Put me on the list.


Two Brothers Round House is in Aurora and is pretty big.
Good food and even better beer.
Aurora is a good location (50 miles or so) for folks coming from Chicago, Rockford, Gary, Waukegan, Kankakee, Ottawa.

Cool, I am going to post this in the Listening Point as well in case there are others that are not members that want to come along.

I'm interested. +1 on Two Brothers. I already have plans Presidents' Day weekend. Any other dates work for me.

Sounds awesome! When is it happening?

Based on response, I am thinking March 5th or 12th.

Either of those work less or more for folks? Depending on what is best, I will get in touch with the Roundhouse and see if I can set aside some space for us. Since Canoecopia is 11th-13th, maybe we look at the weekend before or after?

I am already looking forward to it!

I may be able to make it, so I'm a possible +1. Would be nice to connect with other area paddlers.

Glad to see it's coming together. I will be out of town March 5-12. Heading to canoecopia on the 13. If all are flexible, I would like to attend.
 
02/04/2016 10:50AM
Agreed that for the best attendance it should not be in conflict with Canoecopia.

Shoot - spaced out on Copia...

Between here and the similar thread posted in Listening Point, 3/19 has come up as a decent option for a lot of people.

So the unofficial/official date is 3/19 at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora. Start time whenever you get there, but I will try to get there around 7.

If this works, I will call them and see what we can do for space/food, etc.

Sound good?

 
02/19/2016 09:05PM
Bump - 3/19 is still the date. Hope to see as many as can make it!

Hi everyone,

Trying to lock down an approximate headcount for the mini-wing so I can reserve space. Right now I have them setting aside space upstairs for about 25 people. Seemed like a safe count based on replies.

If you could reply with whether you will be there and if you are bringing others, I would really appreciate it. Either here or the thread on Listening Point will work.

Looking forward to meeting any and all that can make it. Spouses/significant others are welcome.

Thanks!
Brandon

Hi All,

Quick update for you.

Just got of the phone with the Roundhouse.

They will have space set aside for us in the Tavern Loft bar. From the main entrance it is around the corner to the left. They will have information/directions at the host stand when you get in. Just mention either bwca.com, or that you are there for Brandon's group and they will be able to direct you there.

See you then!

Brandon

I never did see any pics from this.
Due to a couple sick people in the house I couldn't go.
 
05/05/2016 02:00PM
Not a huge turnout. We just ended up sitting around and chatting for a couple hours and I didn't even think of pics. It was a fun time.
