[IC] Detroit, MI Meetup?
« on: Sun, 25 November 2018, 16:35:58 »
I'm not sure if it would happen, but there's been meetups close to here (Cleveland/Columbus/Chicago) With there being so many people in the metro area and meetups taking place so close by, it doesn't seem too far-fetched to have other keyboard enthusiasts in the area who'd want to get together.

Possibly if it's closer to spring or summer, Michigan drivers are morons when there's inclement weather.

I used to think so until I spent time in DC

I was thinking summer or fall, but it's better than driving in the south during the winter.

As it happens, I am local to Detroit. Even moreso than you are in Toledo.

If I recall correctly, there were very few of the 'old timers' of the site from this region, so I doubt there'd be anyone I've been particularly well acquainted with. Also depending on what level of "show and tell" is expected, the border might be a strange place to bring a car full of keyboards.

Yeah, I don't really know anyone in the area who's interested in keyboards either. I figured it would be worth a shot to try.

Necroposting, but Ann Arbor sounds like a much better location for a mech meetup

Are there folks out there interested in setting up a Detroit area Keyboard Meetup? They seem to be starting back up. Would love to attend or even help organize. I can also be reached on https://reddit.com/r/BudgetKeebs

Cheers!

If someone is willing to connect in the metro Detroit area to partner with me, I have the means and some folks who could help to set this up! I work and live in Detroit so I'm partial but I will say it'd likely be easier and cheaper to organize a small meetup in the area.

I have only been in the community for about a year and a half but I know how rare meetups are so I would love to help set this up for MI folks. If this hasn't already happened of course!

If you're interested in attending and maybe organizing, please fill out this Google Form: https://forms.gle/9bTPFtdsY2J3raKc7!

Once there are 10 interested people and 2 people willing to organize, I'll send out an email.

On second though, Ann Arbor would make for a better meetup destination. It's much easier to navigate and more central to visitors than Detroit would be; especially for those who are coming from SW MI, northern MI and UP, the Toledo area (yes I said Toledo), as well as people who may be making their way from NE Indiana.
