I’M BRINGING THIS FORWARD SO IT ISN’T SO HARD TO FIND. SO FAR WE WERE WORKING ON A NOVEMBER 6th DATE FOR THE GATHERING, . SO, I’M ASKING EVERYONE AND ALSO THE DETROIT GANG, TO COME ON UP TO DEWITT, IF WE CAN GET THE HALL THERE, AND THERE IS A SAWYER LESS THAN 15 MINUTES AWAY FROM THERE, THAT THOSE THAT WISH TO, CAN GO AND PICK UP SOME GREAT DEALS. WE NEED TO GET A SEMI ACCURATE HEAD COUNT SO DON’T SAY YOU’RE COMING IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY DESIRE TO ATTEND, YOU ARE WASTING OUR TIME AND RESOURCES. PLEASE GUYS, I GUARANTEE YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME, WE ARE GOING TO CHIP IN 5 BUCKS EACH FOR PIZZA AND YOU CAN BRING YOUR OWN DRINK. HOW SIMPLE CAN IT GET. WE CAN BRING SOME PROJECTS TO SHOW AND WOOD TO TRADE AS WE HAVE IN THE PAST, OR JUST GAB, IT’S UP TO YOU, IT’S YOUR PARTY. THANKS TO KEITH JULY FOR FINDING THIS PLACE AND THANKS FOR EVERYONE WHO PLANS ON ATTENDING. IT’S A GRAND OLE TIME, I PROMISE!! MIKE- PS, OF COURSE EVERYONE’S SIGNIFICANT OTHERS ARE INVITED ALSO, THAT GOES WITH OUT SAYING.
ANYWAY, MOST OF YOU GUYS THAT LIVE IN THE SOUTH OF LANSING THAT HUNT UP NORTH OR IN THE UP, DEWITT IS RIGHT ON YOUR WAY UP, IT’S NOT EVEN A MILE OFF N-127
I was reminded we should go with a date that most can attend. If that is the 6th then that’s when we should have it. Agree???

Sorry, but Lou Ann and I are attending the Marine Ball in Louisville, KY. This will be Lou Ann’s nephew’s last one – he’s retiring in 2011. Wish we could be there.

Hey, we need to hold the MI-LJ get together when the greatest number can get together. If the 13th works for the greatest number, that should be the date. We’ll have another chance to get together when the woodworking show comes to town – right?

We do need a head count and a consensus on the date as quickly as possible.

Mike, Bob A in NJ is asking for anyone in Mich. wants to help him. He’s going to have a temp assignment in Mich and was looking for a woodworking buddy for a while.

kickback – Nov 6th works for me. But, like I said, if we can get more on the 13th, then that should be the date. However, if the 6th is good for everyone too, then count me in for that date.

Mike: I think his job has him working for a while in Battle Creek. So I assume that those expenses are taken care of.

I wasn’t sure where you or any of the other guys are in relationship to Battle Creek. I think he is also looking for a weekend woodworking get-away from time to time.

Look at this link it has his request.

THIS IS THE POST THAT KEITH JULY LEFT ON THE OLD BLOG THIS MORNING NOT KNOWING I MOVED THE BLOG FORWARD TO HERE. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// FROM KEITH J
I hope to have an answer on the date ( Nov 6th) sometime later today. I’ll let you know when I hear something.
What time were you thinking?
I haven’t made it over to Calvin’s place. http://www.ravenfarm.com/
Calvin is a member of the local woodworking club, the Mid-Michigan Woodworkers Guild and we have meet there. Speaking of which I was at the board meeting for MMWG last night and mentioned this LJ event. The MMWG board graciously offered to donate drinks ie. soda and water. OK,OK maybe I did a little more than just “mention” it and it could be a construed as a request on my part. Hey, MMWG is a woodworking club and there is a need to help out fellow woodworkers.

8iowa,
I wish your wife all the best in her knee surgery and a speedy recovery.
Keith

8iowa did say to set a date and he would try to get there so the 6th seems like the time. Probably 1pm – 2pm would be a good start time I would think. If everyone else agrees. I don’t know anyone around Battle Creek that’s coming yet Karson. But we don’t have a sign up list yet either.

I’m hoping to be in Texas Oct. 26th – Nov. 3rd, but I’m in for any day after Nov. 4th. Things are calming down around here, so it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll keep an eye on this blog and try to stay in touch. I hope to see you all soon.

-- Cheers and God Bless

Great, let’s get the sign up list going guys, come on, I can’t promise the moon, just a great bunch of guys to hang out with. If we go over to Kelvin Potter’s Place (Raven Farm) it will be well worth your drive, that I can promise you. He has some fine wood, for turners too….mike
