    I say, while the summer is coming, it's the best time to try this idea. People (us?) used to go distance for tournaments, etc.. why not an idea exchange day? It's not paying a lot, then a fight, loss, day over...

    It is the best thing to be peer based. I remember many old schoolers who talked about that being the way it was back then, more than teacher student. Plus, from the other threads with this idea, many seemed interested (if only a little) to try this.

    I'm willing to host something towards the end of the summer. It would literally be out of my garage...but I could do so for no cost and no politics. :D

    If it's in Mass, count me in!!! If it's after the 12th, I'll be out with my fiance and soon to be stepkids from June 30th - July 12th. I just had a spinal fusion, so I might not be in top form, but I'll be there!!!

    I'm not in Mass., but I'm close (Nashua). No worries about being in good form or in good shape. I haven't trained much at all over the last couple of years.

    The chance to workout and get together is more important than anything else IMO :)

    Well, I gotta jeep and can fit 3 people, if they can get to Boston! Then a quick drive to Carol's "House of Horror's" for training! :p

    :( I (and some others) now know why these things fizzle out, in spite of interest shown. ;) ;)

    It's a real shame!

    I wonder if this could ever happen. We keep losing so many.

    It has happened at least once. I had about 10 of the people posting in this thread and their friends attend an event I sponsered on the commen in town. Many brought some of their student and we all learned from one another. Some of the people traveled 4 hours to get to the event. After we all went to my place(at the time) and had a cook out then just sat around and talked.
    So if anyone has enough school or members in their area it is possible for it to happen again.

    P.S.
    That's Italian food I'm talking about. Eggplant Parm and killer Rissoto. Some nice shrimp and pasta, too!

    so this thread has come to life once again and I was wondering how many would be willing to make a trip to Athol, Ma. on an upcoming Sat. for a get together?
    An exchange of ideas and techniques or just a meeting and hamburgers and hotdogs, etc. or a training session followed by food. I'd say drinks but will most likely have the meet at the salvation army in town because i can get the facility for free if it rains. Uniforms or casual dress I don't care.
    If we can get even 4 0r 5 people and maybe a couple of students I think we can do this.

    Count me in! There is one weekend that I'll be flying away, probably five or six weeks from now, but other than that, I'm there. And again, I'll bring food.
