    Wisconsin.

    I'm new to this and a rookie service tech. Just wondering if there are any conventions in Wisconsin ever. Let me know.

    I saw on the news once there's a gay pride convention I think in Madison.

    Oh goody, the clash of the supermen.....

    These particular conventions are very informal and are put on by the members of this forum. Where we have the annual convention is up to who is going to host the next one.

    I think the one after Colorado is going to be in Canada. I'd be more then happy to go to Wisconsin if someone there decided to host the convention there.

    So far;

    Dice's have done Pittsburgh
    Reefertech and RoBo have done Baltimore
    Beencool's have done Vermont
    and, selfemployeds have done North Carolina

    So far, every one has been a blast and a great way to spend a weekend.

    We all said the same about Pittsburgh once upon a time. You showed us there is more to Pittsburgh then lobotomy studies and so someone from Wisconsin can surely show us there is more to Wisconsin then frozen Cheese.

    HVAC-Talk conventions have seemed East Coast weighted. Perhaps having one more centrally located in the U.S., ahem St. Louis maybe?

    Do we have attractions that might even interest the most tentative hvac/r tech? Consider:

    Tour the largest U.S. brewery: http://www.budweisertours.com/ and the tour and beer samples are free!

    Which has proved a magnet for a number of microbreweries/brew pubs one can visit: http://www.schlafly.com/ http://www.morganstreetbrewery.com/ http://www.squareonebrewery.com/ , all in the downtown area.

    http://www.alandalebrewing.com/ is in fashionable Kirkwood. And I can think of three others further out. http://www.augustabrewing.com/ http://www.ofallonbrewery.com/ofallonbrewery.html http://www.trailheadbrewing.com/

    Did I say there was beer in St. Louis? Yes, we are a net exporter.

    And, of course, the Gateway Arch: http://www.nps.gov/archive/jeff/arch.html the tallest monument in the U.S. And unlike the Washington monument, you can ride a tram up to the top

    Casinos everywhere: http://www.harrahs.com/casinos/harra...rty-home.shtml http://www.ameristarcasinos.com/stcharles/index.asp http://www.casinoqueen.com/ http://www.presidentcasino.com/stlouis/ and our newest downtown casino which opened up about a week ago: http://www.lumiereplace.com/

    Six Flags for the fair goers: http://www.sixflags.com/stLouis/index.aspx

    Actually, there are also a few attractions for the more sophisticated. But I'll skip for brevity.

    The HVAC/R industry, of course, is well represented in St. Louis. Might I name a few? SPORLAN, Hussmann, Nordyne, True, Emerson, SPORLAN, Engineered Air. And you might get to meet some its brightest individuals. A tour perhaps at one of these fine facilities?

    We eat good food and drink better beer. The problem with Wisconsin is that there is too much to do.

    We have the biggest music festival (Summerfest).
    We have ethnic festivals all summer.
    We have the Harley thing this year.
    More than 10,000 lakes...
    More bars and decent food. I remember last time the Badgers were in the Rose Bowl the Badger fans drank Pasedena out of beer. That doesn't happen here...
    We really don't have bad highway conditions with traffic jams.
    Reasonable prices on food, beer and lodging.

    The people are nice to most outsiders, even FIB's. (The "I" stands for Illinois.... figure out the rest on your own)

    You had us at the food and beer.

    I don't think that your sexual orientation needs to be stated in this forum unless you want to start another string of Gay HVAC Techs Unite. Maybe hold a Gay HVAC Tech Convention at your house instead of Madison.

    And you call yourself a Professional....lol
