if the weber parking lot idea doesn't work out, the Chicagoland area has plenty of forest preserves that would make a great setting for this type of event

This sounds like it will be a lot of fun.  Kinda like one of the local neighborhood ribfests, but focusing on the grills, not the ribs.

Damn....If we still lived in Dixon we would be there in a heartbeat. But since we live in So Cal now....sorry we will miss that one. :(

How about any So Cal folks? Can we set something up?

I like either idea....Jeff's or Weber lot...If we went to a forest preserve or Jeff's, we could cook.  Which Weber lot do we go to?  Huntley?  Palatine?

Great idea about skype, but it handle multiple locations sending video at the same time?  I have never used skype so I dont know.

What about Go To Meeting?  Could they handle multiple locations sending/receving live video?

I would love to see a large flat screen monitor streeming live fire shots from around the world.

This concept seems like a no-brainer for Weber.  It sure seems like their marketing department would get behind an event featuring classic kettles/accessories that ultimately promotes the durability of and passion for their products.  If its just a small gathering of Weber faithfuls or it morphed into Ed's idea of combining the kettle show with a BBQ comp or similar, its great publicity for Weber.

What do we need to do next? 

Pick a date, or a date range, like spring or fall?

If the Weber parking lot or forest preserve idea doesn't work out, I'm ready to pick a date in late spring/early summer to host by me if everyone would want to come by.   Just a matter of making as many of our schedules work together.

I would love to do something like this. If only there some Weber aficionados in the Chicago area that would do something like this.  ;)

You can rent a shelter at one of the DuPage area forest preserves for about $105. If we don;t have enough interested and committed people to make that work, we can simply snag a couple tables at a local forest preserve and make that work.
kettles, smokers...
