Well if you look at the pins, the next site is your house Darren lol
Worked! pretty cool!
Peter used to run a laser engraving business in that same building as Frank's shop.
He is trying to help Frank's family to deal with Frank's possessions.
He'd like to have a final Frankenfest at Frank's shop on September 16 if at all possible.
A Frankenmorial if you will.
Frank's family doesn't know what to do with his electronics and thinks it would be better off in AK'ers' hands than in a dumpster.
I'm no organizer so if someone would be gracious enough to help Peter please PM me for his info.
Mike- I'm working with Frank's friend Greg to help set something up. I'll touch base with Peter too so we're coordinated.
Might not be enough time for Sep 16, but end of Sep. tbd.
I signed in, but could not "drop a pin"
Did I do something wrong?
I had a similar issue on iOS. Used my computer and saw the options.
Sept 16th is the NY metro gathering, so can't make that date.
I would love to come up to Clinton for a Frankenmorial gathering later in the month if possible.
Theres an American legion here in Plaistow with a good sized hall upstaiers that rents for 100-150 with plenty of parking and is handicap accessible.
I could look into it if theres interest. they also have tables and chairs that can be set up and the bar downstairs.
I won't be able to make it on the 16th, as I'll be on my way home from a radio swapmeet in PA. Hopefully, something can be scheduled a bit later in the month. Anyway, for those who haven't seen it in the other thread, an obituary for Frank has been posted: http://www.philbincomeaufh.com/book-of-memories/3067634/Carpenter-Franklin/obituary.php
Thanks for posted the link Adam.
We're getting a good collection of pins going; fascinating to see where people are located. If you haven't added your location or want to see where your fellow AKers reside, here's the link:
And thank you for the link to Frank's obituary: what a fascinating life. He sure packed a lot of living into his 64 years.
Indeed, and it looks like the Worcester area is still the best for most people.
If we could make it the following weekend, that would be better since Joanne and I will be out of town, but want to help.
Saturday September 30th in Clinton - follow the link:
One more vote for the Sturbridge Host.
I attend the above-mentioned antique arms show there every summer, and they are the friendliest bunch of people, not to mention the hotel's beautifully-lit giant convention hall, and the convenience of being centrally-located, and a very large parking lot with loading entance, right next to the hall. If we don't need the giant hall, they have another, smaller space, which could easily accomadate about 50 8-foot tables, right next to the loading entrance.This would be an IDEAL place, if we could get it.
We can talk more about this in Clinton on the 30th.
My inclination is to find an Elks Lodge (or similar). They're likely to be less expensive and more tolerant of noise and other aspects of our events.
When looking for a location for the NY metro gathering, I was also considering a local Elks Lodge building, which I've been in many times for events. I didn't get to check with them for pricing, but I would guess renting the space, or part of it for the day would be reasonable. Also Knights of Columbus buildings may be reasonable.
Ohm F is on your mind.......
I’m a Ohm collector myself.....
Trying to think a bit outside the box: what about a church "fellowship hall" space? This would provide excellent parking on a Saturday. The only issue is that it would be a single large open space and probably would not offer separated smaller spaces where individual systems could be set up. Plus they would likely have all manner of folding tables, and would welcome some income but not charge a lot.
