Are there any AVS forum folks that live within the Chicagoland area? I'm looking for local people like myself that love this passion we're all captured by. I'm in the Shorewood, Illinois area (45mins from Chicago)...

I'm western burbs as well. My new theater won't start construction until Feb/March so I can't host for some time.

So, we've got a decent list here, anyone have a theater to host an event in? Otherwise we can always stand in someone's basement and talk about what we might have one day...

I'm looking at another meet here in west Michigan late spring. Once football starts I've now found that unless I started skipping things like work I have absolutely no time.

I'd be interested in attending a Chicagoland meet. Cliff and I still need to get together some time.

Hi guys,

I've been insanely busy the past few months, but I'll keep an eye on the thread and make any meet my schedule allows. I'm not in a position to host for now, but I'll mention it to some others I know in the area.

Do know that you don't have to have a room like Art's or Cliff's to make for a fun meet, as the gathering and conversation can be just as fun as the eye and ear candy.

Someday I'd like to put something together maybe at my place. Unfortuantely, life is running so crazy lately hopefully things slow down to make that a reality. That and putting together some compelling reasons and/or upgrades to make it a noteworthy trip for fellow enthusiasts to come out. However I'm always up for the type of meet (excuse) to get together and shoot the bull.

We used to have a small group here in Chicago that met regularly but that faded over the last couple years. I would be interested in starting it up again. I am also in Bartlett.

RAZ did you attend my G2G back in Mar '06? We had the G2G at my place and Sound Decisions (local shop).

That does look nice. Dude, if you have an event I'll drive out, and am pretty sure a buddy of mine would make the trip with me. I'm just glad to see the Chicago thread get rolling...

I'm ready to host.... it just has to wait a few years!

OK, anyone have a place and the willingness to host a meet? It would be great to get this started here in Chicagoland.
