Sounds good. You are in Cleveland, I am in Cincinnati. How about in Columbus? Depending on how many Elements were interested, we could all just stay at the same Motel and have it in the parking lot to keep it simple.
Well if you look on the bright side, we are 50% of the way there with Two Elements. Not super familiar with Columbus, but we could have it somewhere off the loop (can't remenber what they call their loop) in a reasonably nice area. Or could have it north of the loop around Polaris Pkwy, if that is a decent area.
Not sure what motel cost for a nights lodgings these days, but could try to also make it close to a campground in case somebody wanted to camp instead, but I am not familiar with where the campgrounds are in Columbus.
Here is another idea off the top of my head. Went to a local winery (Valley Vinyards) that has a popular attraction where guests cook their own steaks on a large grill and then enjoy them with a salad and bottle of wine. That gave me the following idea: How about a Steak and Ale party or Steak and Alelement event.
Basically we need someone that has a beater gas grill to bring it and particpants can bring their own Ale, beef, hotdogs or whatever tastes good cooked on a gas grill and use the tailgate of you E as your dining room. I can kick in some money for the tank for the grill.
