Well, the Woodworkingshow at Sacramento Convention Center is done. About 25 LumberJocks (and one LumberJill) signed into our booth.
Things started mid-day Friday and completed 4:00PM Sunday.
We had a number of people stop by and ask ‘What is a LumberJock?” Wow, did we have a great time talking to them. We told the LumberJock’s story to about 100 or more people. some, of course, were not interested, but a surprising number took the ‘businees card’ I created as a hand-out.
I cannot remember all of the LumberJocks that stopped by, but I will try.

I am sure there were other in attendance, but we did not talk to them or get them to sign our ‘Sign-Up ’ sheet.
When it came around to the appointed meeting time of 3:00 PM Saturday, Napaman had just walked off to view some vendor’s display. I took the opportunity to call the meeting to ‘order’. We had no business to conduct, but to elect officers of the ‘Northern California Chapter #1 of the World LumberJocks. Since no one was paying attention, I appointed Matt [aka Napaman] the President, Chief Bottle Washer, and Janitor of the newly formed chapter.
Once I had completed ‘electing’ him to office, I closed the meeting. No other business was conducted.
I am unsure if I informed Napaman of his new ‘Honors’ and his ‘responsibilities’.
But we had fun. Thanks to WayneC, majeagle, Napamant, Newtim and a few others for their help in getting the message out.
Don’t forget out LumberJill from Montana.
I am having trouble figuring out how to attach pictures of thsi event. Please help me and I will do so soon
