September 28: Chicago Heartland Institute
Jim Lakely hosts CHICAGO-AREA RICOCHET FANS: Join The Heartland Institute on Wednesday, 9/28 at 6 p.m. for a FREE event (adult beverages and food also gratis). Take the opportunity to see a film about the supposed fall of communism from a man who has lived on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Robert Buchar, the director and producer of “Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story,” will be at Heartland’s Andrew Breitbart Freedom Center in Arlington Heights, Illinois to make the compelling case that America’s victory in the Cold War did not unfold like you were told. Did America really win? Or did the Russians merely engage in a strategic retreat — and are now ready to advance again? You don’t want to miss this special event on Wednesday, September 28. Admission is free, and the adult beverages and dinner is on Heartland! Register here: https://www.heartland.org/events/events/the-collapse-of-communism

September 8-10, 2017: Glacier National Park, MT
This is a long way out, but Randy Weivoda and sawatdeeka are planning on putting together a weekend meetup in Bigfork, Montana. We expect to have a group excursion to Glacier National Park one day. Some people may choose to go horseback riding, kayaking, touring the town, or just hanging out. If you want to get in on the planning, click here. Updated announcement here.
A Weekend in Memphis: TBA
It has been suggested that Memphis is an attractive, accessible and fun place to host a meetup, and may also attract some VIPs that we would love to have drop in. Suggestions & offers to help organize this would be welcomed. Please email me at Melissa@Ricochetmeetup.com for more information.
Ricochet members DML and Tedley are hoping that a Ricochet Meetup can be put together in Tokyo. Come visit the post and put in your 2 cents.
Ricochet Meet Up is Created By and For the Members of Ricochet.com, and is Where You Can Learn More About Our Unique Gatherings Around the Country and the World. Join Ricochet (first month free here), then Join us at a Meetup!
From Stad:"My primary reason being a member of Ricochet is the podcasts. However, Meetups have moved rapidly up the list, and have topped posting as my secondary reason for joining. Here’s why:
*You meet great people . . .
*They agree with most of what you feel . . *But they may have different viewpoints .
*And you can discuss them without coming to blows . . .
*Then you eat together and be merry. What’s wrong with that?
Friday Night Shabbos Meal with iWc in NW Baltimore
iWcThis is an invitation for all Ricocheteers to come to my home for a Shabbos meal. Friday night meals are very, very special: we prep all week for them... the guests, the menu, even the flowers. The meal (my wife is an exquisite cook) is served on the finest china, along with beautiful a cappella music, first-rate conversation, discussions of Torah and politics, waited on by well-mannered and hardworking children. And the meal is complete with the full regalia of Orthodox Jewish rituals, and with a host only too happy to explain what the heck is going on.
And we do this EVERY WEEK. Which means that we would love to have any/all of you on a Friday night of your choosing. All we ask is one week's notice to confirm in case we are invited out, etc. With only a handful of exceptions over the past 20 years, we ALWAYS have guests, so it is no imposition.
The time: 1 hour after sunset.
The place: NW Baltimore.
The food: you will roll home.
The guests: you tell me!
Let us know!
Thank You, Randy Weivoda!
