I would nominate Colorado but there's only a few of us out here (but we have the monopoly on crumpage with meeba).

Our weather is a whole lot less extreme than Texas though! Plus other more favorable laws :rolleyes:

I vote for Colorado too

There really does not seem to be a consensus here, with "Other" leading the vote with only 27% of the vote.  And Chicago not far ahead of 2nd and 3rd.

We should probably pick the top tree locations at this point and start a new vote

Nice and central, and a good airport with direct flights to most of the country. Chicago is great in this respect too.

Apparently it's possible to get a tour of Cherry in Germany. Or GMK. Either way, Keycon should obviously go there.

Straight transfer I'm no punk. :-) I did purchase two colors. Glitch3d should hopefully be able to sort it out.

If people are seriously talking about Cherry/GMK tours in germany, I will be based there next year, and would be happy to do the legwork of organizing stuff.
I was just doing a bit of research, looks like Cherry is in Auerbach, and GMK is in Wernberg-Köblitz, which are literally 45 minutes apart, so it would be really easy to make a day of!
They're also both about 2 hours from München, which is basically the biggest tourist destination in Germany, so the whole gathering could be a great two-day thing.

I don't think planning an event 1,300 miles away is going to be the best thing for any of us.  -_-  Not only will I have no idea what areas are better for this sort of thing, but sampling venues will be impossible.  We need a local to step up and take over.
