Topic: Great Lakes Gathering - short followup (3 msgs / 97 lines)
1) From: Paul Goelz
I'll let Ben, our host, wrap things up officially.  But we had a 
great time today at the first Great Lakes gathering.  There were 
seven of us all told.  We brought coffee paraphernalia, we talked, we 
drank coffee, we roasted, we talked, we ate some out of this world 
home made tiramisu, we roasted some more, we talked..... and then we 
had to disband.  We talked about doing it again in the fall for 
anyone who cold not make it this time around.
We never got to the Turkish coffee either.  We had two kinds there 
and ran out of time.  Ah, there will always be a next time!
Glad to have met all of you!

Thats basically it. We had coffee, we roasted, we went back in to sample 
what we roasted. Eat the best tiramisu I've ever had. By that time it 
was already 2 pm. Time sure flies. So, we went back out, roasted some 
more, in the Alp, and frankentop this time. Franken top did a nice job, 
really functional hack!.  Came back in, split up the coffee, and then 
people had to leave.
However, Sid stayed around, he made turkish coffee for us. Then he 
volunteered to help with the dishes. Great Guy; but then all of the 
attendees were; well except for one (she was a great gal ;-) ).

exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will 
instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more 
bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Agreed, good conversation, good coffee, and very good home made tiramisu.
And to have a ventilated "coffee shed" to roast in (and make a mess without
anyone complaining!) Very nice.
