Any interest in a meeting of Chicagoland bakers?

I would like to know if there is any interest in a meeting of the Chicagoland / northern Illinois bakers?  Simply a casual social gathering to meet others in the area, share formulas / ideas / etc. and maybe even get a few loaves into an oven.  My church, which is located in Aurora, has a large commercial two oven stove that is just begging to be used to for baking bread.  I am thinking about a meeting on a Saturday from noon until 3:00 PM.  It is just a suggestion and I would appreciate any feedback – good or bad.

Steve, that sounds like so much fun. I don't live in Chicago any more, but it's still my hometown, and a baking meet-up would be a great excuse for a trip home.

If you get enough residents to vote yay, I'll be there too (schedule permitting, blah blah).



I am not a cook. But I am sorta cooky."
