I made a reservation at the Red Roof Inn, about $80 with taxes using a AAA discount. Looking forward to learning and meeting some of the folks from the forums.

My husband and I would like to attend. Can I just email the information asked for on the registration form, then go to PayPal to pay? Otherwise I have to scan and send from my office Monday.

Jim,

First off let me say thank you again for calling me back yesterday to answer my questions.

Secondly you put my mind at ease somewhat when you told me this was a good starting point for new users. I am so new my CNC has not even arrived yet.

I will be sending in my registration today and as I found out last night when I looked your place up this is only 6 miles from my daughters apartment. She is a Junior at the University of South Carolina.

I am very much looking forward to meeting everyone and starting this learning curve I have in front of me.

See you in May.

the mix of "Experienced to "New" is about 1/2. Basically I have never had a complaint as to what someone gained or feeling they left with less than they came with.

Look forward to meeting you as well !

James,
Any chance you can have a dropcam like on 1 day last year?
That was great to see people from the forums and to follow the audio!
Just asking...well...maybe pleading a little bit :)
Stay safe.

Just a follow up and reminder on the Agenda that Jim posted.
The camp “officially” starts on Thursday ( May 19 )

The previous times were:
9:00 – 10:30 Meet and Greet......

After that, the first session will last till lunch time
After lunch there will be two or three sessions.
Gary Campbell and I will be tackling the topic of the Rotary.

We know many people have this option on their CNC machine but it’s the least used tool in the shop.
We’ll show the ins and outs of the rotary and how you can design and make other item than just spiral columns.

This has always been a requested topic, so we thought we would spend the better part of the day on it.

The exact agenda and timing is still being finalized but I wanted to make sure people could arrange there travel schedules accordingly.

Thursdays meeting has gone till 5:30 – 6:00 pm....so bring your questions.

See you there,
Michael
