As all now know, I pushed the ‘meeting’ of local LumberJocks at our regional WoodWorkingShow in Sacramento last weekend. Some 25 members identified themselves and signed the ‘book’. Additionally, we were able to tell our LumberJock mesage to over a hundrd people! And in the last few days, over 100 new members have signed up. [I would like to think those of us at the Sacramento show had some part in those 100 new members,]
During this process, I found several bits of information that others may benefit wanting to do something similar to what those of us in Calif completed.
First the WoodWorkingShow people are VERY receptive to supporting woodworking organizations, clubs and guilds. Second, they will provide the venue, booth space, free admission tickets, and even the promotiional support for LJ’s and others.
I would like to suggest that other LJ’s , in or near the city of a future WoodWorkingShow to do a ‘meet-and-greet’ of LJ’s. This will also provide you the opportunity to meet others and invite them to become LJ’s
Please contact Ann at Woodworkingshow.com and ask questions and to arrange a LJ event in conjunction with a WWS event.
I will also be available to provide a bit of support.
