It would be great if the Meet & Greet could be held at one of the stove factories, like Keystoker or Axeman-Anderson for example, or some other historically significant location. 8-)

If you want to do this feel free, it's a pretty far drive to get to NEPA from Connecticut so I'm sure there will be some interest for a local event.

I could go either way but would much rather go to NEPA. What the hell is there to see in CT?

Several previous M&G events have included a tour of the Keystoker factory. I think the Mayor is planning on further north this time.

if people would want to do something in CT, i could try and setup a tour of a large coal burning facility. There are obviously no coal stove manufacturers up here, but maybe a tour of the Bridgeport coal fired power plant or some place with a huge boiler. Bridgeport is the last beast in the area and they may allow tours.
