We're considering hosting a GTG at our warehouse in Clinton CT (right of of I95 between New Haven and new London and midway between NYC and Boston).

I've had about 6 relatively local CPF'ers drop in and figure there must be more lurking or local who might be interested in showing off their toys and looking at some of ours.

Let me know and if there's enough interest we'll start making some plans!

What a small world! I lived in Clinton for 5-6 years as a child, and my dad lived a good bit of his childhood there!

But, as I live in Delaware now, safe to say I wouldn't be able to make it.

justmyluck - I grew up in NY and live in Madison now but went to school in DE (UoD circa 1990-1994) :)

Manzerick - hope you can make it - no dates yet but that's what this thrad is for. I'm thinking a Saturday/Sunday afternoon even though evenings are better for looking at lights we can get the warehouse basically black in 5 minutes with tape/cardboard and have a 40 ft shot.

ROAD TRIP! :rock:

I don't even know how many times I've driven past on my way to my sister's place in North Providence, RI.

Sweet - as PB92 noted there are more locals than expected! Nice! I know of 3-4 more that likely haven't seen the thread here yet.

grapplex - A man after my own heart! It's funny you ask as my landlord just offered us a bar - sorry to say that we refused, no place to put it as we need the space for flashlights batteries etc. Remind me to bring the Patron Anejo (my personal favorite) for the GTG. :)

I'd come on down. I'm in the Hartford area, but depending on when, and if my schedule will allow it...I'm there!

I am in as long as it's not my on-call week at work. I might chance anyway, just a longer drive back south for repairs. Only 25 min. drive for me without Q-bridge traffic. I better buy the wife a new pair of shoes before the trip so I won't get any grief on $$ spent....hehe

If Manzerick goes it is likely I'd attend.

We will wait and hear the specifics and see if it is hopefully dooable.

I'm thinking April or May - it's too cold out!

Saturday late day early evening? Mid-Day, or does that limit playing with the lights too much?

We can get the warehouse basically black but it's filled with a lot of stuff and 10' tall racking.

Thoughts?
