I have now heard back from many people, as well as the potential location to do a northeast cartridge meeting, and it looks like the only date that the location can host is also generally compatible with most all who responded to my earlier emails and postings.
It will be Saturday, Nov 12th from 11am to 6pm at the “Manchester Firing Line” at 50 Gay st in Manchester, NH.
It is free to all, but I’ll have a donation jar out to defray the cost of rental for the large lobby space (it wasn’t too much). This is a good fit location wise to be central to most northeast IAA members, and is obviously a gun/cartridge friendly place. There are 20 or so people who expressed interest, and we’ll try to have 15 or so tables set up in their 35’ by 30’ space (so I was told, - I’ll bring extra tables). A couple people had said they could use two tables, while most just wanted one, but some will just share a table (like myself) and it will be casual like this since it’s all free. This will be informal, and just a way for us to get together and meet & swap / talk. There will of course be all the daily shooting range traffic going through which is fairly busy being Saturday, and hopefully we will get some new IAA members signed up or people will sell some stuff they are trying to offload to new prospective collectors (I hope). The range opens at 10am and closes at 8pm, so people can stay later than 6pm, but 11am should give time for set-up and people driving. There is also the option of shooting, and they said there should be open range time if anyone wants at $16.00 per hour.
The location is the “Machseter Firing Line” at 50 Gay st in Manchester, New Hampshire. They refer to this as their “old location” since they have another new location on Brown ave.
