1st Annual Straight Razor/Wet Shaving Convention

Discussion in 'General Shaving Discussion' started by Lynn, Mar 11, 2007.

  1. So.....my friend Charlie and I were talking about this and decided that we should have the 1st Convention in Chicago before the end of this year. We will try to get a block of rooms at a discount and a room for vendors as well as a room for presenters and get togethers. The event can be co-sponsored by all the other forums interested as well. I would also love to get Barber Jay from Indiana out to do straight razor shaves for us too. I'm sure we could come up with a great Agenda together.

    So....what do you guys think? All recommendations and comments welcome.

    Thanks!

  5. This sounds pretty cool! If I don't have any schedule conflicts, I'll definately check this out.

    Road trip!

    My wife said she would facilitate peer support sessions for shave widows.

  9. Chicago is my kinda town.
    I don't shave with a straight though, and I live in the UK.

    Have a good convention.

  11. I'm close by and very interested. You should contact the local Trufitt & Hill, at 900 N. Michigan. They might be interested in a sponsorship of some sort.

    Another decision about conferences in Chicago is city or suburbs. Suburbs will be cheaper. Rosemont is right by O'Hare...a good middle ground (I used to live in Chicago, but now live in Iowa, so I have no vested interests)

    This sort of thing has been talked about before and I still think it's a great idea. Someone just needs to head it up...and I take it from this post that Lynn is going to be that person!
     
  13. As relatively new Str8 user this really peaks my interest. Great idea!!
     
  14. Getting a fair amount of response from all the forums. Looks like we may actually try to pull this off.

    Thanks Guys!!

    This could be a lot of fun.

  15. Great idea Lynn. I think the community might be large enough now that this could definitely be viable.
