Now that we cover a much smaller geographic area than the old base, one of the things I have always thought to be a good idea was to have a gathering of as many of our Base members as possible.

Maybe something at the Wisconsin and Illinois border...
during February (yes...weather could be iffy)

at a budget hotel chain that might have a meeting room....
Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning...

A chance for everyone to meet each other without the constraints of an event...
brainstorm...
help others with projects...
have dinner...
Take a group photo...
maybe a place with an attraction nearby that might interest significant others as something to check out if they would rather do that while we are "gathering"..

dunno...

thoughts?

I like the idea. I was thinking it was about time to start having base meetings, now that all members might have a chance to attend.

I can look into places in the Kenosha/Racine area. I'm not sure what there is available in northern IL.. if someone has an idea about the area I'm open to hear it.

I have been thinking that it would be nice to do no costumed get togethers every 2 -3 months in different locations. I think it would help solidify the group more.

February sounds like a good time, as long as the weather isn't terrible. It's far enough after the holidays and generally a slow trooping time.

Check with local libraries… most have a meeting room that can be used, some require a library member to reserve it, some don’t, and families would go into the kids area for a bit while we meet.

I also like the idea of base meetings because of our small size. Since we are only two states, this will give us an opportunity to meet each other without having the "leaders" worry about event responsibilities.

although not a full member yet - still assembling the first costume - I think this is a really great idea!

That would also be part of the intent...
to help those who are making or even thinking of making a costume...
