Well, went to book my trip. Between air fare, hotel and car rental it would cost me over $1000 to attend. Just purchased a home which needs "stuff" so decided not to go.
Life is short, Rich. Come to the show!

Looking forward to it. Actually going to be my first drum show ever.

Getting back into drums after a lengthy layoff. Been knocking off the rust with an e-kit for about 9 months. Most likely hunting for a reasonably priced Ludwig Downbeat style kit. Been checking out new and used kits. Trying to do my homework a bit. Pretty confident a 20/12/14 rig will be just fine to get things moving again.

Cheers.

HUH??

First of all, the show isn't in downtown Chicago. Second, I've spend lots of time in Downtown Chicago over the last 4 decades, and never had an issue.
man i was just in the city! Chicago is a amazing city!

I’m in! I just booked at the Quality Inn. It's an 8.5 hour drive, but worth it. I’ll drive partway home Sunday night finishing Monday morning for a dinner gig that night, a big band rehearsal Tuesday, and a concert band rehearsal Wednesday. Luckily, my orchestra concert Sunday afternoon was cancelled. Usually that precludes the drum show.

I’ll probably be wearing a DFO shirt, so stop me and say “howdy.”

I make it most years, was really looking forward to it. Something came up, it doesn't look like it is going to happen.

:(

This could change. Last year I got in the car around noon on Saturday and drove from Pittsburgh to Chicago. I caught the show on Sunday. My bride is always supportive of my going. We'll see what happens.
