I hope we can make this work with the gathering we're planning annually for Minnesota too. Unfortunately it's right around the same time we're planning it, so I hope that doesn't throw any 'sticks in the wheels' for either of our groups, in that fewer people will attend both conferences.
If I can find the time, money, and still be at peace with the war department I will try to make it to Michigan in the spring, as well as Lake Superior and Ohio in the fall. Sounds like there is great interest from lots of interesting people!
