I already told Zz by PM, but in case anyone else wants to try to make plans, my school's Spring Break is Saturday 3/18 thru Sunday 3/26. I plan to be in IL during that time.
OK, since Tom has announced this, let's shoot for a SECOND Unofficial PF Gathering in Chicago. Either weekend on Saturday (3/18 or 3/25) will work for me. So if anyone interested can let me know either on here or via PM, we can all make an early plan for this.

If the group is small, we can all meet at my place. If it is large, we can meet at a restaurant somewhere that we all agreed on. So put this on your calendar if you're interested!

The 2nd unofficial PF Gathering in Chicago has been set for Saturday, March 25, 2006. Tom and I will be there. Hopefully, a few more will show up.

Exactly location for meeting hasn't been decided. As before, if the group is small, we will probably meet at my place and go from there.

If you think you can make it, please let me know. We can then plan on the details.

Since it is going to be almost a month till our next unofficial PF gathering in Chicago, I thought I should send out another heads-up notice for people who might have missed the first one or who are still considering.

We are planning the next gathering on Saturday, March 25, 2006 in Chicago. Hopefully the weather would be a lot warmer than it is now. Where we meet depends on how many will be showing up. If we have a small group again like last time, then I can certainly host the initial get-together and then we can pick a nearby restaurant for dinner (I'm suggesting either Japanese or Moroccan since there are two very good restaurants nearby within walking distance).

So far, Tom will be coming. I'm hoping Greg would be able to make it this time. I know there are other PF members around the Chicago area. And who knows, some of you in other parts of the country (or North America) might want to fly in for the weekend for this (and shopping?).

If you are, please let me know so that I can do a preliminary head count.

Cheers!

Zz.

It is another time for a roll call. We're less than 2 weeks away from another planned unofficial PF Gathering in Chicago (see post for details).

If you think you can make it, please let me know.

We are a week away from our second unofficial PF Gathering in Chicago. So this will probably be one of the last roll call for any possible last minute participants. Again, the date is March. 25, probably around 4:00 pm, north side of Chicago. Details will be sent out via PM this coming week.

So far, we have a few possible "yea". Since the number is small enough, we will be meeting up at my place and go from there.

If you think you can make it, please let me know.

Since I'm flying to Washington DC the following weekend, I can't make it. If I had sense, I should have booked a stopover flight in Chicago and met up with you for a bit. :frown:

Too bad, Evo. You will miss all my Disney vacation videos that I'm going to show when everyone gets here.

Uh-oh! I think I just lost the rest of the people who are thinking of showing up!

Looks like the upcomming planned PF Gathering has to be postponed due to unforeseen schedulling conflict.

We will try to organize another one some time in the middle of summer this year. So plan on it!

But look out for other unofficial PF Gathering being planned elsewhere in other threads.

I'll plan on the summer one...assuming none of those unforseen scheduling conflicts pop up. I really think summer is the time of year I want to see Chicago.

I hope you can stay a bit longer than just a couple of days for the gathering, Moonbie. We'd love to show you around the city, go visit a few restaurants, and take you out shopping.

I might do a long weekend. We'll see. I really need to get a grant application submitted this summer, so that's going to cut into "play" days. I do want to see Chicago though, so I'll have to see what I can work out.
