The only thing that can affect July is my daughter. Her baby is due July 23, but you never know.

Otherwise, I'm open to any time. The only brewers I know of in the area are lschiavo and myself. We're both all electric, so hauling it out there isn't an option. I have my old stuff, but it maxes out at 10 gallons. There are a couple of guys about an hour away, newer brewers, and maybe they'd like to brew (and haul their stuff or use mine) and some of us "old timers" could provide hands-on assistance? Just a thought, without having some travelers hauling stuff. I'll send them a PM so they are aware.

Homer, let us know when you're coming up this way, and Bernie, Xiang, and IP and I can also come up with some good days. Chicken, you can come anytime you can make it!

I'm in Gladstone. I've got a family get-together planned at camp for the Negaunee Pioneer Days (July 10?); but other than that, I would be very interested depending on my schedule.

Perfect! We have room at the cottage, but there is space for camping, too, if that's your thing.

Let's brainstorm a couple of dates.

July is pretty open for me. I can't think of anything offhand that would prevent me from coming along. I don't know if I'll have the confidence to brew in front of you veterans, but I'd like to be there to assist and learn from you guys.

Yeah, I'm definitely mentioning this to the wife, and we'll see what happens. Like I said, I know nothing about my daughter's MTU thing except I *think* it's for 2 weeks now, and my wife said something about making a sort of vacation out of going up there.

If it doesn't work out for the brewday, then I'm pretty sure we can at least meet up for a few beers somewhere. However, a brewday on the lake sounds like a blast!

Yooper, I'd be interested in a brew day, or at least a showing up to a brew day. About a 45 min drive, so not too far away. Always looking forward to meeting UP brewers. From here, just met lschiavo so far.

My daughter is going to MTU the week of July 11-17. I should be able to meet up at least one of the weekend days, or weekday adjacent to the weekend. I won't be taking the whole week off, but probably a day or two.

That sounds great!!!!!!! Let me know which day you think will work for you, and we'll coordinate as best as we can. I assume your wife will come? I'm looking forward to meeting her. You guys can stay here, if you'd like. It's not fancy, but you should be very comfortable here.

I might be interested in coming...I don't know if my husband could come or not, but I would like to.

I hosted the May 1 Michigan Predators brew day--it was my first outdoor brew day I've attended, and I gotta say, brew parties rock!
