Any talk yet of where the next gathering will be?
There was talk of all sorts of locations -- St. Louis, Winnipeg, Milwuakee, Ann Arbor, others -- but nobody stepped up and outright offered to take point on organizing the next one. If somebody who wasn't there (several key people from past years were not) wants to make that offer, by all means please go for it (on the planning topic).
Moderator's note: This planning topic has been split off from the 2009 Heartland Gathering in Kansas City report topic so we don't lose track of the folks who have already started planning for the 2010 event. -PR
