    Let's try to pick a day when we can all meet up at Jefferson. April 29th or 30th?

    Edit-I just saw that Elkhorn is in August too!

    Maybe we can meet in Jefferson or Elkhorn and the day before or after, head to the Byron, IL dragstrip for some running there. I have never been to the track, just to visit, they say Byron is one of the better strikier tracks. Works for me!

    I'd be down. Lake Geneva is about 2 hours from here... not far at all. Has a final date / location been set yet?

    We are thinking of making the Jefferson Show a meeting place. Maybe Elkhorn. (Right by Lake Geneva) Not sure of dates but Nodih put a link up there somewhere.

    I think we are going to meet at the Jefferson Co. swap and show. If that's what we want, we need to pick a day. The info for the meet is somewhere above, courtesy of NODIH. Let's check it out and start picking. Also there is a meet in Elkhorn. I'll be there too.

    Directions:
    http://jeffersonswapmeet.com/directions.shtml

    Local hotels:
    http://jeffersonswapmeet.com/lodging.shtml Dave and I live on opposite sides of Delavan. He lives east around 5 miles, I live west around 5 miles.

    If you have any Family Radios, we can talk on them, but likely the frequencies will be very busy. If you are into ham radio like me, I will have my ham rig in the car by then. Shooting for 20M and 2M, maybe 440 if I can figure out how to mount them all without damaging the Cad. I have a GRMS radio too, these are higher power than FRS radios, require a license ($85 from FCC for 10 years) and can be had at Walmart or online for around $60. Midland has some 5watt ones that are highest power of them all. Great for this sorta thing. If you want to spend the $$. My ham radio callsign is N0DIH.... But you all knew that, right?

    The Byron dragway is down around 55 miles south of Delavan. Take I43 west to I90, take I90 south (east) to the I20 bypass/I39 turn off. Take Bypass US20 to Main St Exit, go south, follow signs to Route 2. Look for nuclear power plant plumes, the dragway is about a mile from it, just off of route 2 a little ways. Easy find, just follow the steam...

    The Union Grove dragway is more east, but the talk is Byron is a grippier track. Big names have and still do come to both.

    IF we want to get some time there.... Might be too much for a weekend with the swapmeet.

    Parking is around $3-$5, and it is like $5 to get in the gate. Bring walking shoes, this place is big and takes forever to get around. It just keeps going and going...

    Guys from out of town, will you be driving in day of or day before?

    What is the word on who is coming? We are getting closer to meet time!

    I might put my 20M whip on the car and a flag on it just to help people find my ride.

    Gotta figure out how to get us all together.

    Last year Arnie and The Tameless Tiger was there, so that would be a cool meeting place. http://www.arniebeswick.com/photos.htm

    We can plan on meeting at the grandstands, that is one of the easier to spot places to meet. Just need to somehow know what people look like.

    Do we want to PM each other will cell phones if you have em?
