Default Chicago Illinois

Do we have any members from the Chicago area that are interested in meeting with other members and maybe having some fun and possibly even making a few new friends? If there is anyone interested, please either post here or contact me, we are looking to get a new chapter going in the area and need you to help. Thank you

I am in! Just found this thread. I find it odd that there is not already a chapter. I am not sure, but CHICAGOHAND and I meet with few other guys and turn pens once a week. PM CHICAGOHAND.

I am called CHICAGOHAND for a reason even if I live 42 miles west of there.
Very few other professions require you do most of your best work in the dark with the power off.

My kids grew up in naperville. I lived there for 15 years. I loved Chicago, probably the best big city in the world. Gotta be a million or two pen turners there.

This message has been out for a while. I'm also in Chicagoland and finally back in the shop. Has any sort of group formed yet? I'd certainly be interested.

Until (and ever after) you create a Chicago Chapter our Illinois neighbors are always welcome to join us in Wisconsin. Just check the Wisconsin Local Chapter for meeting info.
