    VH's Internet following is huge. VH's Internet following is also very splintered. There's a fan community over on the VHML, the Van Halen Mailing List, that is just as much fun as Links is.

    The best thing about the VHML is the convention they have every summer--the kind of convention that we have tossed around the idea of organizing for Forums, where we'd all get to meet each other in person. It's called the VHML "Con," and it's spectacular!

    This year the VHML is extending the invitation for their convention to us!

    If you go, you'll get to see the massive and diverse VH memorabilia collections that members bring, and participate in the CON Jam, which is an all-VH jam session which you can play in whether you are an Eddie clone or a three-chord wonder.

    I happen to be on the 2001 Con Planning Committee. This is the message they're sending to all the VH mailing lists, and that they asked me to show you guys:

    It's that time of year again!! PARTY, PARTY, PARTY!!!

    It's time for the Van Halen Mailing List to decide where to hold our annual convention!!! The 2001 CON committee will be taking nominations for potential cities and we NEED YOUR INPUT!!! However, in order to vote, you MUST be subscribed to the VHML. That's why we, the 2001 VHML Convention Committee and the VHML, would like to extend an offer to all fans on all of the current Van Halen-related mailing lists to join the VHML and be a part of our festivities. Send an email here to subscribe to the VHML:
    vhml-subscribe@topica.com

    Additionally, if you'd like to become active in the planning of this year's CON, we'd LOVE to have you join the VHML CON Committee list. Send an email here to subscribe to the VHML CON committee:
    VHMLCONLIST-subscribe@topica.com

    Whether it may be participating in the planning as part of the CON Committee or voting on a city and date for the CON, we hope that you can all be a part CON 2001. We hope to have the *best* CON ever!!!

    The 2001 VHML CON Committee



    Remember, guys...if you decide you want to vote on the city that it's going to take place in, you need to be subscribed to the mailing list. However, you can set your subscriber status to "no mail" so you don't get a flooded in-box. You just have to be a member of the list.

    If anyone here shows any interest, I'll post the voting page so you can put in your vote for the city you want the CON to be held.

    Thanks, guys.

    Do you have to be on that list to vote? Forget it, just reread

    I think Ohio
    There's at least 10 people here from Ohio,
    4 of which are in Dayton

    I can handle Ohio - that's just a hop and skip for me. Besides, it's central to just about everywhere, right?

    Hey Synth - I have an outside chance of making it to Chi-town in March - wanna entertain me if I do?

    Yeah, Ohio... SOUTHERN Ohio

    Well, okay, Dayton works, it's only like 45 minutes away.

    Wait, I'm not joining the VHML, which means my opinion doesn't count. Damn, oh well

    Man, you Ohioans missed out. The VHML just had a Winterfest (which is like the cold-weather counterpart to the CON) in Cleveland. The CON itself is likely to be in a major city, but where is anyone's guess. I'm sort of partial to San Francisco since I think I'm going to move there this summer.

    Wolfman: YES! Especially the weekend of the 17-18th. When in March are you going to be here??

    I find myself torn between the two. Oh well, we need a little healthy competition.

    I think we should have the VHML CON at 5150. We could check out THAT collection instead!

    Hey, I can dream can't I?

    Cleveland? Hell, that's clear on the other side of the state. If I wanted to spend a day driving somewhere I'd pick someplace like Chicago or St. Louis

    Ah, but Cincinnati, now that's a major city. Seriously.

    Jonathan, the men's bathroom of the Hard Rock Cafe in San Francisco is fine with me (obviously.)
