Off to Champaign!

Crew-- Let me start off by saying the weather in Socal has been absolutely ridiculous! 85 today, not a cloud in the sky except for the 100 mile long smoke trail from the fire that Toro is currently working on putting out. I'm excited about this weekend, because I'm heading to my first event outside of the southwest in quite sometime. I've also been told to prepare to freeze my ass off on this one...

Stop one of the 2006 season is in Champaign IL! Bob is leaving butt ass cold Canada to announce at the Great Plains Electric's. This should be fun, but more than anything else, I will have the opprotunity to hang out with all the friends I've met over the years both online, and in person.

If any of you are around, look for me and bob at the event. I promise to buy every FG'er a beer.

See you guys there, and look for full event coverage in the gallery.

MM out!

Have fun Max,

I know at least one of the Giants is going, F3aFlyer7, I believe, will be flying a demo at lunch, one of the days.

I was going to go on Saturday, but I have to install a kitchen this weekend, this working for a living is gettin' to be a drag

Re: Off to Champaign!

Hope to see a bunch of you guys this weekend. Not sure how much time I will get to spend at Efest as I have a bunch of building I want to do but maybe I will glue up some sheeting and while that is drying spend the rest of the days on Campus. By the way this is a college town and school is in session

Re: Off to Champaign!

After your beers you might be looking for something to eat. I recommend LaBamba, Burritos as Big as Your Head. I believe they changed locations since I was last there but ask any of the students walking around campus. Make sure you ask for extra hot sauce. I just ate at the one in Springfield IL yesterday....awesome. I usually get the steak "super" burrito.
