I live just outside of Tampa,Florida. Wondering if there is any LJ’s interested in getting together like the bunch in Michigan did?

why not?!? FL is a big state but somewhere in the middle would work for me. I think Howie mentioned a “woodworking fair” coming to Tampa sometime in march. I am not sure if thats way too far ahead but that could be a good place to get together…kill two birds with one stone maybe.

Howie, is there more info about that fair online somewhere?

Camper: search woodworking shows.
my email address is hwilson34@tampabay.rr.com, lets start trying to put something together. Camper has been over to my house a couple of times. If we can get some people interested maybe we can set up something and bring the wives and have it at my house.Doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just a get to know thing. I’m open to all suggestions and it would be open to all.
I don’t think having it during the WW show would work. Most people are interested in the show and that’s what they want to see.
Ziyad, SPH got any suggestions? This would be a democratic thing and all comments,suggestions are welcome.

I am delivering a L-shaped computer desk and wall unit to my sister-in-law in Tampa sometime in March. I would love to meet some of you guys for coffee or lunch. I will post when I know the exact dates and see if anyone would be interested. It is nice to meet fellow lumberjobs when you travel. I did it when I went to CA this summer.

God Bless

Sounds good to me.
I’ll be living in Kissimmee by Christmas and would like to get together with you all.
Sounds like March would be good for most so far.
It’ll be fun.

I think the WW show with a meet and greet before for breakfast or lunch would be great..

I am in New Tampa so anything in the Bay Area to Orlando would work for me. Looking forward to it.

Just saw your post…..Did you guys get together? If not let me know. Also, one of my buddies just moved down here from NY. I met him last week for a couple of beers. He might be interested also.

Let me know.

Have your say...
