I haven't found this mentioned, so thought I'd ask. Has there ever been a massive gathering of hangers that the manufacturers and gurus gear up to present their expertise and wares? Say in a National Forest over a week or long weekend? I think it would be fantastic.

It seems there are enough members to make it a successful and rewarding venture. Has it ever happened or been given serious consideration?

It would be fantastic to attend such a gathering, see all the gear, go home with new toys, meet up with everyone.

Just thinking out loud.
