Well, I gave my opinion about the idea; the workshop I had in mind would not compete with other MARCH or Infoage events, and be located convenient to the handful of participants. But there's nothing wrong with a MARCH event on its own merits.
It looks like Bill Degnan and Evan will combine Lee Felsenstein, one of the Radio Club repair meetings (which I pointed out as occuring), and the idea of a MARCH repair event. There's another discussion thread where Bill is organizing all that. Those interested should go to that thread.
It would be sour grapes for me to not support this idea. I'll see what I can bring as a simple project, if I can schedule my participation. Another day, some other people including myself, may organize some other event along the lines I suggested. I'd do so myself, near Trenton/Princeton, except I'd need to rent space and consider overnight accommodations for the participants.
