I am hosting a get-together for members of GardenTenders, LumberJocks, and HomeRefurbers in September.
Due to limited space I would like to know how many people are definitely planning on attending.
I realize that things can happen between now and September but a “maximum” number would be very helpful.
I will then contact everyone in the summer for final confirmation of attendance and to provide directions.

Date: Sunday, September 9, 2012
Time: afternoon (flexible times)
Location: (Southwestern Region) Ontario, Canada

Are you planning to attend?

———————-
Accommodations: hotels/motels are just 1/2 hour away
I’ll put the food on. Chipping in is appreciated: “potluck” or $ .. or just show up. That’s cool too.
Woodworking—bring your showcase items, wood swapping pieces, freebies… whatever.

I would dearly love to attend, Debbie but this depends on two things.

1. Getting a passport.
2. Winning the lottery.

Return flights are at least £500. Just out of my range these days. Good luck with meet though and I look forward to a full report, with pictures!

I will keep that date on the Calendar. At this time I will not commit though !
A bit of coaxing may help.
Will there be food ?
Will there be refreshments?
Will there be free things?
Will there be food?
Oh I mentioned the food, LOL

yes, I’ll be putting some food together. .. I make pretty good homemade bread and we’ll have a bonfire raring to roast some hot dogs.

free things … no guarantees at this point.

oh and yes, there will be food. I can also make pies.
Now, after all that, I’m counting you “in” :D

I see your in Brantford. I am currently living in Florida but I am ordinarily from buffalo NY and wish I were back up in the great white north! .Oh by the by my brother in law is direct descendant of chief Joesph Brant I could be wrong but I think he brought the 6 nations to your area.My great great great uncle Shickluna Built most of the wooden ships on the great lakes.He was based in Port Colburne ONT.Enough of a history lesson. .Looks like your Leafs will make a strong run into the play offs while my Sabres are headed for the basement :( Hope you have a nice turn out!

My cousin runs a burger wagon and I thought of asking her to be our food provider. Then everyone could just buy their hamburg/ beef on a bun (etc) from her… that would make it really easy.
If we get a HUGE turnout, this is probably the way I would go.

If we don’t get a lot of people attending, “chipping in” would be helpful.
I know a lot of people are traveling quite a distance so the pot luck probably won’t work.

Thanks for the offer re: helping. I will definitely keep you in mind!!

No.

I was just thinking.
Maybe Martin needed a “reason” to come to Canada and enjoy this wonderful country.

I was planning on visiting my parents in the Brampton area in the fall after getting the last kid off to college. So the timing wors out well. Please keep me posted. Thanks.
