That was great! So glad to meet each of you in real life and to see and play your instruments.

So, shall we meet again in April or so?

And whoever has photos, please post!
Great time yesterday! Thank you Diane for organizing the event. Sounds good for another one in April - or sooner!
I enjoyed myself yesterday too, well worth the drive. It was great to meet all you fine folks and see all of the creativity of those in attendance. I saw some real cool stuff you guys n' gals, nice work ! My only regret, it didn't last long enough. ;-)
Great to see you all yesterday, big big thanks to Diane for doing the legwork.
(Again in April? Sounds good).

Just got back home to Phoenix from my former stomping ground Chicago. I had a great time at the Chicago cbg group's first annual meet up. The Grafton is a cool pub, the weather was picture perfect and that part of the city has a very cool vibe. Here's a group shot of everyone

that turned up.
