Hey Rick, I’m over here on the east side (Ann Arbor), but I’d wouldn’t mind driving to meet up with other LJs in Michigan. Count me in!

I am all for this also Rustic. Should not be hard to just schedule a park pavilion or something in the spring or summer. We could also put together a list of discussion items. Each person could possibly bring current projects, unique shop jigs they developed, or anything else of interest. We could also do a material swap that day also.

-Just some idea for everyone to start pondering!

Hey Rick, I’m over in Royal Oak (just north of Detroit), but I’d be willing to drive across the state if the scheduling worked out. I hope you’re keeping a list so you can let us know when you set something up.

Wow I didn’t expect this kind of response. Hey Tearan want to help me organize this? I can see this getting too big for one person to handle.

Hey Karson, you are invited as well :-)
