Grand Prix in Austin seems logical to me.

I threw a dart and this place came up. We could all bring a rotex and save Frank three years' work!







Well there is room for a lot of people on the island and I would certainly be willing to host an event.  [big grin]

By the way, here is an aerial photo of the island from Google:

Frank,

How big a generator do you have?  [big grin]

Just kidding.  I hope that one day I can visit you at your island and see first hand all the projects that you have posted here.

Hi,

PA is the closest by far for me. I would be willing to go anytime of year, but would suggest it not be winter for travel / weather issues. Wouldn't want a blizzard spoiling things.   Quite a lot of votes for PA too !!!

I'd be more than happy to host it at the store.  We have the space, MFT's, tools and the beer (for after, of course).  There's a Marriot about 15 minutes away.

Just an idea, about 45 min north of NYC so if there were some that wanted to fly from "away, away" it's easily reachable.

Guys, let's organize something here whether it's an official FOG regional meeting or not.  It'd be a ton of fun.  We'll get a grill going, brews, etc

You guys are getting me psyched.  As we get closer, we'll have to gauge interest.  I mean, you guys can still come and just hang!

Sean,
 
I am well up for this. Choose a date and I'm heading down from Montreal. Any time after the end of April works for me and I love driving down the Taconic which runs right by you (I think).

Richard.

Richard, we love the Taconic too.  It's about 2 miles thru the woods from us.  You'll be getting off the Jefferson Valley exit, hang a left and we're 3 minutes down the road.

One of the most beautiful "highways" I've ever had the pleasure of driving.  I've had some darn memorable moments (good and bad) on that road.  Would love to push a bike hard on it some day.

Hi Sean,

Yup,  do it. I will come. I will just cross my fingers that it will be an available day.

Perhaps a seperate thread for this event would be a good idea?

I am still in for one in PA  as well.

I have yet to meet any fellow Festoolers from FOG or tF.

Just as a clarification - the original title indicated that I was interested in gaining information and thoughts for my hope / dream for 2012.  Sean has indicated that he is willing to put together something in 2011 at his store.  ROCK ON Sean! [thumbs up] [thumbs up] [thumbs up]

I am looking a year out because my dream is not achievable this year unless a miracle happens.  Close your eyes and imagine what a project about blue boxes morphed into and then think about what I might be thinking/ hoping  on a similar scale for the Regional Events.  

Love the dialogue.  Keep going!

It's quite wise of you to plan for 2012.  And, I hope that we can make it happen.  If there is any way that I can be part of the 'we' that helps with the plans for this event, please let me know. 

By the way, I am a member of the planning team for a big event in my home town of Hearst Ontario for early August 2012, so I hope that the Festool event does not conflict.
Cheers,

I'm definitely up for whatever Peter is cooking up in that mind of his, in the meantime I'm definitely interested in meeting my fellow FOGer's ASAP!  I think it'd be a blast now and next year...annually for that matter!!!

Why not hold them at the festool sites in LV and Indy? Maybe some how to seminars, show some prototype tools or some of the tools they have in europe that we cant get here, folks bring some projects in for some sort of contest, etc...

Plus one for this idea!!! You would have a lot of resources already on hand.

I was kind of hoping for a Denver or Kansas City option, as I am in between the two.
