I know this a chicken or the egg, but first a day needs to be picked so people can decide.

Want to stay away from weekend of the 31st due to Halloween and the 17th due to Sweetest Day. (17th is so that LJs can earn points for rest of year to get new wood and tools.) Monday the 12th is Columbus Day (observed) and some people may have a long weekend. The week of 10th is coming up too soon. My reasoning says to have it Saturday the 24th.

I’m assuming we need to have some kind of indoor facility or at least a sheltered area. I’d like to bring some stuff to show and only need a table that I will bring.

Steve.

One more twist, the 24th is a home game for MSU against Iowa. Need to make sure the place to meet isn’t too close to the stadium. I know that a mile from the UofM stadium in Ann Arbor is full gridlock during a game.

Rustic – No heart attack, just want to cover our bases for success. You are carrying the heavy load though in finding a place. I messaged you with a RFP for meeting rooms from a hotel chain – will let you know.

I know the Woodcrafters store near me has rooms for training. You might give them a shout.

If there is a mill near Lansing, it could be a customer day for them. Most of us LJs can’t pass by a wood sale.
