Consider me a "maybe" on this for 5/27, I would like to go, maybe even tie it in with a Wisconsin county clinching road trip, we will see.

Probably not doing this one. I've been there before, and Mississippi a couple of weeks earlier offers a chance to get a bunch of new counties (I already have Illinois clinched).

Unlikely but possible. See if I can convince the lady to see Chicago that weekend.

I'm going to make an attempt, but I'm also very interested in Mississippi so I might have to pick between them.

no picks in between here and there for me - I stay regional so I'm likely.

I'm going to try to make it. It'll depend on where I end up over the summer, but it should work for me.

As more details get finalized, will they be posted here or somewhere else?

Well, it's your lucky day

OK, I've made my decision, after a lot of thought between two dates.  The meet will be on May 27 at 11:00 am.

Yes, the lunch will be at Monical's Pizza at the northwest corner of Wall St (IL-113) and Court St (IL-17).  I will have an itinerary up later this week.

Yes, it's a cracker-like thin crust.

They're all over eastern Illinois from Mattoon to Monee, based in Bradley.

I remember they closed up the one in the plaza by Dollar Tree on rt. 50 just before we moved from Bradley.

IMHO, the pizza isn't anything special, but it's also certainly not bad.

For a good portion of the attendees, it's something different. Which is precisely what I like to see at a meet - something distinctive to the region.

A friend of mine used to manage that Monical's..  Wish I remember his name though. :(
