    Got back last night from the Aspire Camp. It was a pretty good event, well organized with a nice mix of speakers.

    I was most interested in the indexer discussions. There was a lot of information and inspiration there. I ran out to HD last night and bought a couple of 4x4's to practice on.

    The only critique I would make on the show would be for the show-and-tell part. Giving away a cash prize is kind of empty. Personally, I would rather get a nice plaque that I could put on my shelf than some cash I would blow in 10 minutes. Once it's gone, that's it. Nothing to show for it. A plaque would last forever and be a source of pride and discussion each time someone looked at it.

    Other than that, nothing but good stuff. Good food, good venue, good speakers and a well oiled machine. Thanks!

    As someone who made a living doing arts festivals for over 25 years, I would say plenty of cash AND a plaque would be the best option.

    I'm totally out of the loop when it come to Aspire Camps. Is there more than one location? If so which one would be closest to the Chicagoland area? I ask because I'll be joining the ranks of the re-tired this winter and it may be fun to see what ShopBotting is like outside my very small circle of 1.
    So, I'd be interested in 2019 locations, if that info. is available this early.

    Vectric has a user group in Chicago in October,, look on their website for details. The camp I hold is in my Commercial woodshop and was started in 2009 as a thank you for the help i received from Vectric and the great machine forums, CNC changed our operation and We grew during the recession, I am still as grateful now as i was then !
