I was wondering about organizing a little get together with some of the folks close to Minneapolis. It's getting close to time to crack open the safe and clean and re-oil and I thought it might be fun to get people together. If it's just a couple folks, then I could host at my house, but if it is larger than that, I could look into reserving a conference room at a hotel in the area. I know there are a few folks that are close, but if this is something that would interest you, please reply here or send me an IM. If there are people that you know that might be interested that aren't on the board, please IM and I will send my e-mail address.
I am stopping short at this time of calling this a study group at this point - possibly just a one off, but I know I would be interested in continuing to meet. If there is interest in an on-going group, then I would hope to get some of the more long term collectors that have more than just gendai stuff that might be able to bring some stuff that appeals to more taste than just my own.
