Based on the response we've received, we've bumped up the FOG meetup to 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. An email will go out with details tomorrow.

Tyler,

I have not received an email. Received an email  for connect but not fog meet -up. location?

I didn't want to put this on the FOG until close the event, because I don't want a bunch of non-FOG folks turning up. Here's the info:

Brian "Sedge" Sedgeley and @TylerC from Festool will be at the event along with the FOG's loyal moderators, @SRSemenza  and @Peter Halle

The meetup will take place at People's Revel Room in downtown Lebanon. The Revel Room is part People's Brewing Company and is the regular hangout spot for the Festool USA team, and they've become good Festool friends. They also have food at People's, so feel free to eat dinner there. (The actual bar was made using Festool products.)

When you enter Peoples, go left into the bar area instead of right into the restaurant area.

Festool will pick up the tab from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Feel free to hang out at People's before or after the event on your own dime. Please drink responsibly.

Friday, September 15
6:00 - 8:00 p.m. ET

People's Revel Room
111 W Main St
Lebanon, IN 46052

Well darn my buddy Jerry and I were at the people's bar last night and figured it was a Festool thing but didn't really know why. now I see it on the Forum I wished I'd known. Don't really look at this part of the Forum very much oh well looking forward to the day

@TylerC

Will ther be a live stream of festool connect?

Some of it will be streamed live on Facebook and Instagram, and we'll be putting more video online in the next week or two. We won't have a dedicated livestream this year, because
a. The format is different than most other years. It's less based around speakers and presentations, so a long-running livestream makes less sense.
b. Lebanon is pretty much in the middle of a cornfield and a dead spot. Our success with live streams from here in the past has been questionable.

     The gathering was quite enjoyable. Seemed that everyone had a good time.  I just have to work on remembering screen names and real names and faces.   [huh]  I am sure I didn't get a chance to talk to everyone but I hope to get in some more conversations at Connect.           Speaking of which ...........  look at the time I better get moving  [eek]

Thanks to everyone who came to the FOG event on Friday! I hope that you all had a great time. I definitely did!

It was really great to get to meet you all face to face. I just wish we'd had more time, because there were so many good people to get to know better. It means to much that you guys made the trip!

The FOG meet-up was great to be able to put so many names, faces, and personalities all together.  Also thanks to Sedge, Minnie and Tyler for coming up to meet with everyone.  I can think of at least 15 people I visited with whom I had never met. 

Saturday was fantastic.  I would not change a thing.   I believe there were close to 1400 registered and I think most of them showed.  Programs, food, demonstrations were all on the money.  Weather was fantastic --- although I live nearby and would have preferred a couple of inches of rain for all of the stuff we are hand-watering.

Thank you to everyone that worked so hard for the meet up and Connect!  You are really appreciated!  The food was great, there was more room this year and the swag was great!  I had a great time, hooked up with a couple friends and met many new friends.  The format was great and I second that I wouldn't change a thing!  Thank you again and look forward to next year!
