Ogmeet 2006: Day 1

Friday was the first day of Ogmeet 2006, a.k.a. the Midwest Blogmeet, put together by Og and Omnibus Driver. Yesterday we just met at the Stonewood Ale House in Schaumberg around 6-ish for drinks and dinner.

Naturally, I took a few pictures.

Here’s Leslie, who seems to have done much of the organizational heavy lifting:

And Bruce the Human Pet from Conservative Cat:

Update: Got time to add some more pictures. I’m terrible at matching names and faces. I hope I got these right.

Here’s Mr Right of The Right Place and a companion whom I can only assume is Mrs Right:

Here’s Grant Crowell from Grantastic Designs. He’s not really a blogger, but he’s preparing a documentary about Ward Churchill and it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be very flattering.

(He noticed me taking the picture and was trying to look thoughtful.)

Finally, here’s JimmyB from The Conservative UAW Guy:

The rest of the pictures (not many) are in my Ogmeet 2006 gallery. Or just view the slideshow.

(Please link to this post, which has a permalink, rather than directly to the galleries, which could change.)

Update: Day 2 is up.

  1. It was great to meet you, Mark! Nice pics, too. Any plans to post anything from day 2? I’d like to see some of what I missed.

    Great blog, by the way. I will blogroll you this week when I do some updates to my sidebar!

    Don’t be a stranger.

  2. BTW, yes that is my wife…

    On second thought, strike that. I’ve never seen that woman before in my life! Honest, honey, I have no idea who that is. It must be photoshopped. Yeah… that’s the ticket!

  3. Great time. Awesome pictures! Sorry we didn’t get more chance to yap- but I’m sure we’ll talk again soon. Great blog, by the way.
