    I know @Scott Kramer is around. Anybody else? Maybe Mini-Meets? Or coffee and some phone calls?

    What part of Ohio? I grew up in Cincy.

    Live in Nashville now, but might be willing to make a trip up if the timing is right.

    Haha, bummer. That's a bit too far for me.

    Sorry about the unfortunate fan status, though things in Cincy aren't much better at the moment.

    @Wilson I can relate. I’m a 49ers fan. Sadness indeed.

    I'm also from Cincy, and currently just a couple hours west of it. If something materializes its possible I could make the drive, depends on timing and where in Ohio, so I'll keep an eye out

    I'm in Columbus. Clintonville. Just north of OSU. We used to do a lot of meets.

    Sorry about the delay. You'd think I was planning Operation Overlord...

    I'm probably going to get a week off in mid-January, but there's the snow...so I'm open

    Columbus seems to be a good halfway point. @EeePee, any thoughts on a place to meet?

    Stay safe all!

    Cincinnati. Sorry I missed this before.

    @RiddleyWalker is also in Cincinnati, I believe.

    @Azteca, cool! I think if the weather holds, I'd love to make this happen in January. I'm also thinking a location closer to Cincinnati if there are more folks located there.

    I don't recognize his username/posts but @Galm also says he is in Ohio in the loaner threads.

    Correct! Currently away in NY, but I’ll be back in mid January.

    Im normally somewhat near the Factory of Sadness as well. Close enough at least.

    I'm thinking another week to check interest then decide time and place.

    Yep, I am in Cincy and I’m down for a meet. Columbus works fine for me, or elsewhere. Just let me know

    Hey @Wilson, no idea other than my apartment. I have two record players set up and some space but seven people might be a squeeze and a bit noisy but we've done it before and it was fun. Lotta beers.

    And I work every third Sunday so the meet would need to land on an off one.

    If the apartment doesn't work out due to size or timing, I went to a small meet at the main branch of our public library. They had a nice big meeting room with tables, outlets, and a closed door in a quiet wing of the library. It just had to be reserved in advance. Might be worth looking into wherever we hold it (Columbus still seems sensible).

    Hi All - I'll be sending a PM in a few days with thoughts about times, etc. Hope everyone had a good New Year!

    If I wasn't so lazy I could figure out which Sunday I work. I have the next one off, then work, then the next two off.
