Hey Guys,

Just talke to Jockmike2 and we are still on. We just need to get a final head count so we can plan the food. Mikee and his wife are bringing Sloppy Joe and wedding potatoes. My wife and I are bringing some burgers and dogs, and also coffee. Anyone need unleaded? We would like it if someone could bring some chips and plates and silverware. I also just found out that we cannot bring alcohol into the park. Mike will be bringing a few things that he has done as well as some tools that he would like to raffle off and I am going to bring some veneer that Tearen gave me that I don’t have a use for right now. I may bring a few things to show off as well. Feel free to do the same. Did I forget anything Mike? Anyways guys let us know who is coming.

See ya all on the 25th

I am in.

Anyone who wants to carpool from east of Lansing should drop me an email. I am going to travel north on I-275 (from Sibley road) to I-96 and then west to Lansing.

Steve.

Not sure if you got my last post – my wife is making roll-ups and we can bring chips.

Is there a cost for park entry?

See you on the 25th.

Yes, there was a 50 dollar deposit for the park rental, that I paid. I thought maybe we could pass the hat at the park and share the cost. I’m not going to raffle what I have. I have an old mini bandsaw I got off ebay for 40 bucks, if someone wants it I’ll take 30, the same with an old scroll saw I bought at an auction that came with a Lathe I bought. I paid 40 bucks for that if someone will pay me 40 for it, it’s a deal, otherwise I’m just going to put everyones name in a hat and draw 2 names out and give them away. I also have some wood for pen turners. I don’t turn and have no use for it. I’m giving Rick some of it and if there is a pen turner there he can have the rest or split it up.

Far out I can’t wait. Hope everyone shows that said they were comiing. I’ll call Kelvin Potter this coming week to firm up our coming out there. I wish I could give him a head count. Also I would like to know if anyone would go in on a bunk with me. Oh well, just have to wait and see.

Mike,

PM me a little info on the bandsaw? I don’t have one and have some times where a smaller one would come in handy.

Steve.
