Let me work out a few details. Maybe we could meet at the Woodcraft store. They are about 15 minutes from the Sacramento Convention Center. That is the location of the Woodworking Show, Mid November, 2009. I am sure Woodcraft would be a sponsor.

I’d be happy to get together and/or bring some stuff to a show. I’m in the Oakland Hills, so anything in the Bay Area up to Sacramento is cool with me. Napaman? WineCountryWhimsy?

Rustfever – That would be great. I would probably get to it…depending on schedule…coming from San Luis Obispo area the location is not an issue….It would just be my work schedule that might interfere….

Purp and CA jocks…Purp if you get up and around Santa Barbara during the holiday weekend…maybe we could get a few Jocks together to have a quick visit….LA is a bit of a stretch for me these days – I do get to Santa Barbara on occassion…and it is less crazy then LA…...but If you don’t get a chance to make it up north a bit…make sure you get to visit some of the So Cal Jocks….It would be great to put some faces with the folks we meet on this great media

Jim, Heirloom, Riddle OR….what the heck, it is only 360 miles each way to the Sacramento convention Center. Just a quick little drive.
Seriously, it would be great if you could make it down. I, and I am sure a lot of the other California Jocks, would love to meet you and exchange ideas and experiences.

I’ll probably be at the wood show in Sac this year, (I missed it last year). That’s probably the best plan.

-- Happy woodworking!
