We're SSPers. We're all smart enough to figure it out! But seriously, I'll come up with some way of identifying our group, especially since we are talking about right after the air show, so things will be hectic.

I might be dating myself a bit here, but based on past forum meets, a lot of us are really easy to spot in a crowd. Some of you give off a certain je ne sais quois

There really isn't a set itinerary, bnk. Figure we'll meet up at Rock Bottom around 4pm, grab a beer or something, then figure something out. Gonna be slammed because of the air show crowds, so it all kind of depends on what the group wants to do. Perhaps just a photo tour? Not quite sure.

I'll be wearing a black tee shirt with a camera on it, and carrying a Canon bag.

Might take me until about 4:30 to get over there. Thankfully I work in the South Loop, so it's not too far to get to River North whichever way I take. Though the air show crowds might add some time, of course!

Would try to make the next meetup or sure.

I'm somewhat jet-lagged, so whether or not I show up today will depend on how tired I feel!

Looking forward to later this afternoon. Let's plan on meeting at the bar on the 1st floor of rock bottom. I'll be wearing a dark grey Chicago breweries shirt.

Hmm I don't see anyone in a white suit. Maybe I'm in the wrong place? As far as I can tell I'm at the first floor bad to the right of the revolving door standing awkwardly next to their awards....

I want photo evidence otherwise it never happened.




I have been to a few with as many as 10 members at one time even the webmaster from SSC Jan Klerks was there. That was a really great evening and got to see a condos, offices and rooftops that were off limited to the general public and meet a lot of great guys.





But my My last Chicago fourm meet up was just two people. Me and Glowrock.

I think he remembers that one.

Oh no! What time were you there? At least some of us were there from ~4:15 until almost 9, but we sat down at a table eventually.

I was looking at the bars after hanging out on the roof for awhile.
