I've run into Len and some of the local members so far.  I keep trying to meet Dennis tomorrow.  Robo Hippy, Doug Thompson & Vince Walsh are in the Vendor area.  Ran into a vendor that hasn't been doing woodturning shows for almost 7 years, Anie with a new Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register.

Who else is here?

I met let this evening at registration. It was great meeting him.
I went by Robo Hippy's booth earlier today
To check in and introduced myself.
I wasn't sure if perhaps he wasn't
Aware that an earlier post had suggested
Checking in there.
I also met Gary Webb earlier in the day.
He is a super great guy and extremely talented.
Also very generous.
Once again thank you Gary.

Nice meeting you John.  I waited and looked for Len after they shut down this evening but couldn't find him. 

Hey! Len, you get lost?  I thought you were going to meet me at the Woodcraft booth and go to dinner.

Ran into Larry today, nice meeting friends I have only spoken to through my keyboard.  Oh, and Len showed up again.  I had a great dinner at Cracker Barrel last night.

Len, Safe travels and happy flute playing and making my friend, and may all your shavings result in a treasure.

Still brain dead from the long drive home, arrived at 730 this morning and slept a couple of hours, I mentioned above that Len was the only one I met, and I had posted earlier that I had met Gary (aka Spider) but I neglected to mention him in my most recent post.
Spider was a true pleasure to meet and is a great craftsman of anything wood, turning and flat work.

Thanks once again Gary.
