Jem-Expo : an annual jemsite get-together/gear show!

So, as I lay here, getting ready to go to sleep...I'm texting a guy about guitars I haven't seen before...and it hit me.

Why dont all of us jemsite members actually set a place and date (all contribute financially) and Have some sort of jem/uv expo and showcase??
We can have one every year! We can all meet, as well as trade, sell, and experience all of the Jems and universes! Can you imagine a place so full of these special rare guitars?

My mind, right now, is completely blown!! Honestly!

Shai, Jesse, jeff, mods, everyone else...tell me this is a great idea!

If anyone is for this, post here. Let's make it happen.

Isn't that what Jemfest was? I couldn't tell from reading their posts but it looks like it didn't happen this year and could be over completely.

I never went to one but it seemed popular.

Jemfest isn't happening this year...and this would be just so everyone on jemsite can get together and meet and everything else..

Re: Jem-Expo : an annual jemsite get-together/gear show!

Great idea -it should be held in Australia and everybody can fly over! I know a great place too! The beer is cold, the women are.......well women, and we had the Olympics- well that was the last time we had a decent event. Better still, what about an online event?

On a serious note, I think somebody tried this in Australia a while ago and I think it was a fail.

Good luck anyway- I can't wait to see the pics (or pic) Sorry for the sarcasm. I'm looking after a 3 year old and an 8 week old.....

Re: Jem-Expo : an annual jemsite get-together/gear show!

It sounds like fun but I'm pretty booked up on travel. My family lives back in Chicago, so I end up using quite a bit of vacation every year to go see them. I just spent a week at OBX and I'm taking a week in October to go out to California for my brother's wedding. My work is pretty flexible but not THAT flexible

Ah, an impractical idea. I did mention I was tired when I wrote this, right?

I thought it did...I know there Re quite a few Jems I want to check out that I've never seem before! Plus it would be cool getting to know the jemsite community.

Re: Jem-Expo : an annual jemsite get-together/gear show!

This reminds me of an idea I got a few weeks ago. I was thinking about making a website that was almost exclusively Jem and Universe information. Forums, classified, specs of all the different models, etc. I suppose other Ibanez guitars and various other gear could be discussed. Maybe even different sections for other 6 string guitars, one for other 7 string guitars, and for some reason I had the idea to add a Dave Wiener sub forum that will be closed.

We can call it Jemweb
