New England Meet and Greet

Postby Leo » Mon Jul 03, 2017 1:39 am

August 12, 2017

Plan on it.

Agenda to follow.

Nothing special is planned as to training, or teaching. It's just a social event.
This will be OPEN - if someone wants to do a demo or teach that is welcome and totally voluntary.

I will have a computer, shop, CNC router, Laser engraver, all the woodworking toys, a nice yard, garden, three 10x10 popups, plenty of parking. I have SOME seating but not a lot. If you have folding chairs and are local, please bring them. I have a few folding tables.

Kids, dogs, cats, spouses, friends - ALL invited.

PLEASE - NO alcohol - not even beer. (This is my only request - please honor it)

I will have Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Linguicia dogs, fruit, water, coffee, soda, ice, and maybe some other stuff.
If you want to bring something to share please let me know so I can make sure we don't get duplicates.

I am NOT going to ask for any money, but I WILL be spending money and I really cannot afford to do a complete freebie. Please donate, IF YOU CAN, and please do NOT donate if you truly cannot donate. But - PLEASE - DO - COME - and enjoy the day at my place with kindred spirits.

Please EMAIL me at voisil@comcast.net

I will send you my address and contact information and add you to the list, so I can plan accordingly.

My "Plan A" for a ride to Leo's JUST fell through:(
Anybody in Maine going that could take a 6 mile detour from Mile 24 on the Turnpike that could give a guy and a wheelchair a ride?
Chauffeuring (and having your ear talked off) recompensed with very decent hardwood selection :)
Lodging and demoing of your choice of Tiny stuff also available?
Hoping,
scott

Scott ... I can be a backup (Plan C). It would be a 184 mile detour for me, so I would need to take you up on lodging for both Friday and Saturday nights. If your wheelchair won't fold enough to go in the back of the MINI Clubman, I can bring the Sprinter van.

Thanks Bob:)
We'll keep that at Plan "Z" because of the crazy detour. :)
Nice to know you're going:)
Working on a guy I trained with a pick up truck, but he's out straight usually with day job at P&W and the "Button" job I passed to him.
Appreciate it!

but son is enroute to Alaska same dates... that being said if you guys ever aspire to make it up, we can host a day or two in exchange for educating me (or host a fishing trip)... :!: :?: :!:

Thanks Bob for the truly wonderful offer, BUT you're off the hook now:)

I know I am horrible about sending out the information email, but we are still ON.

There are a few people signed up.

I promise I will send out EMAIL directions this week.

Anybody else wanna come?

Sorry about being so slow to send out contact info. I just sent it out today. I have been busy with a lot of stuff, but now I am getting ready for Saturday. Boy, this comes up on you FAST.

Still time to sign up. Price is right, come and meet some kindred spirits.
