All right, I've finally gotten my act together and begun writing this entry in earnest (over a month after I was originally going to - oops).
I said before and I maintain that this should be at least a day-long event. Since the Midwest is drawing from several states rather than just a local area, it'll be harder and take longer for people to gather wherever we decide to meet. Hotels/lodging should be considered. Dates as well. Right now, the first week of July and the second week of August are off-limit dates for me. We should narrow this down further as soon as possible.
The following are only ideas. Obviously this won't work if only one or two people will actually be able to show up, so I need your input on what we should do. PLEASE COMMENT!
Through some idle conversation, the idea of going to Hell, Michigan for the Midwest statemeet was brought up. Mostly because it would be fun to say us statementsers dined in hell. ;P
It's a rather small town, but it seems like it could be fun, at the very least because statementsers are by nature fun-causing people. Or so we hope. ;) Here's the town webpage, and the Wikipedia entry. If we get bored there, the college town of Ann Arbor is only 30-45 minutes away.
I mentioned this in the first entry. Indiana Beach seems like it would be a nice place to meet. It's more centrally-located than Hell, though does seem to be in the middle of nowhere (not like Hell's exactly hopping, either).
I'm sorry people, I can't let this idea die. It doesn't have to be the main Midwest meet-up, but I think it would be really cool if statementsers could gather at Cedar Point some day this summer. All the pertinent information on CP is at website, they have hotels on-site (and many more are located nearby) for anyone who would want to stay (CP is huge and hard to do in just one day), and it's a great great time. They have a ton of rides (roller coasters, water rides, carni rides) and games and places to eat and it's just fun. I may be biased. :D
