« Part 5: Today is the day. This weekend is the weekend. Part 6 of Chicago Lumberjocks Meetup/Woodworking Show December 2009 series Part 7: The Wrap-up »

Booth Setup

That is our booth setup. Keith Shipp (no relation but it sure is a small world) was able to bring a big TV and laptop from work so we could show people LumberJocks. We had a Powerpoint presentation we could run all the time to try to draw people in. We also figured out the Internet thing… Anyway, we were able to get on the site live and show people around also.

We had a lot people stop by and pick up buttons. Some people that stopped by said they had been to LumberJocks before but hadn’t joined so we encouraged them to join.

A good time was had by all and we hope to see a lot more LumberJocks out the rest of the days.

It does look like you all had a good time and this is a pretty nice way to let people know about the group. Thanks to all of you for taking the time and effort to do this.

Thanks Keith and especially Kyle for all your hard work. I’m sure more member will be joining due to you guys getting out the message with that special Lumberjock warmth that has drawn and kept so many members. Nice presentation by the way. mike

That is how I got on this site. My DuPage Woodworking Club was directly across from these guys. So I went to talk to them and voila, here I am. It will be fun to learn all about the lumberjocks and especially share ideas, projects, etc.
