hmm. I attended an A2K gathering in Chicago a few years ago. The Chicago gang plus others from Milw and even NM plus me from VA. It was my 1st A2K meet-up.
As you know, MaP, from the sports games, I am a chronic organizer.
I would really enjoy meeting you. We disagree, perhaps, politically, but I admire your thoughtfulness. And Diest, I like that you have, over the last year or two, tempered your writing a bit.
Forgive me for stepping on your thread re the marathon. Would you mind if a sent up a trial balloon about an A2K meet in Chicago that would occur over that same weekend, consisting of, perhaps, one get-together for dinner?
