Anyone here in lower Wisconsin?

I've just started back to work for the University of Wisconsin,
putting me in Madison for the summer before I set out in October for
_another_ year at the Pole. In the meantime, I was curious how many
listmembers were in Wisconsin. ISTR someone here is up in Appleton,
but I can't remember who that is. Not sure if anyone else is in the
area or not, so I thought I'd just give a shout.
I hauled along my 1802 kits (among other junque) in anticipation of
getting things ready for VCF-Midwest next month. One fun thing I
picked up right before I left town was a short stack of Elf
frontpanels, custom milled for me out of 3/16" ABS... a friend of the
families owns a business that happens to have a CNC machine, and they
happen to mill plastic stock. I approached him for some scrap stock,
and he gets interested enough to machine out a dozen switch holes
_with_ locator notches (the holes look kinda like a silhouette of the
Commodore chicken-head logo, but that's fine - the notches work
*great* at keeping the switches from turning in the holes). I look
forward to mounting one on my Spare Time Gizmos Elf 2000. Now I just
need to sit down and make a final list of parts I _don't_ have on hand
and finish assembly.
So if anyone is within striking distance of Madison, give me a shout
offline and maybe we can get together while I'm in the area.
