I’ve been thinking about this for quite a while, and was waiting for the right moment to get this going. After talking about it with several of you MA residents, and getting a good vibe from you guys. I think it’s time we make it official:
Lumberjocks of New England Picnic Day
Aiming date – 2nd weekend of Sept – when the weather is a bit less humid, and more convenient. based on weather – this might be changed to 3rd weekend if needed.
Location – Since I’m bringing this up – the event can be held at my place – we have a large grassy patch, next to the garage/workshop. I’m conveniently located in Winchester, right off of 93/128 intersection, near route 3A, and Fellsway. It’s a central location in East MA near Boston which might be convenient also for NH, VT, ME, and also CT, and RI peeps to get to – but with that in mind – any other offer, or suggestion for a different location is also welcome.
The Plan – Fun time !
Getting together face to face with all the other Avatars, BBQ, Bring your kids – Bring your better half, Bring your worst half – it’s all fair and square, and the more the merrier.
Everyone is welcome to bring any woodworking related items they wish to share, or introduce to everyone else
If anyone has access to ‘free’ materials/tools/ideas – feel free to bring a bunch and spread it around – I already can account for Masonite sheets (40”x48”) and Granite Slabs (for sharpening purposes, etc)... I’ll try to come up with others if I can…. but you get the idea.
If anyone can think/get a sponsor to help out – GREAT! (whether it be sponsoring a location, or t-shirts, or key holders, or magnets… you get the drift)
If anyone thinks they can run a short class on a certain technique or the likes- that could be another fun activity to go through…
any ideas – feel free to bring to the table.
I know your names, and I know where you live – dont make me come over and get you :)
Peace, and have a great weekend.
Sign your name here if you plan on attending. Hope to see you there.
