Just wanted to let everyone know, we had a great time at the LJ Arizona picnic today. Thank you everyone for comeing out and spending time with us. It sure was nice to ba able to put a face with the names.
Had a lot of fun and food. BarBQued burgers and dogs, had lots of other food including, a Pumpkin Pie and cookies that the store owner, Mr Keith Stephens, brought out when he stoped by.
Well, I did not get all the pics, so someone else will have to fill in the holes.

WoodWorkerSource supplied us with a couple of tables and plenty of chairs for everyone to gather around.
It was 87 today so we were outside enjoying the weather.
As you can see we had quite a group of people. 14 total, 8 LJ’s 4 spouses and 2 Potential LJ’s
Jim is an “Antique Clock Replicator” He build clocks and other things useing modern tools but old plans, designs, and techniques from the era of the piece. He ever “ages” them so they look like antiques. Looking forward to seeing him on LJ’s. He heard about the picnic from WoodWorkersSource. They put out a newsletter and gave our group a nice mention. Here is a link to the newsletter.
Well that is all the pics I got. (they kept me slaveing over the hot grill) haha
All in all we had a great time. I am sure that connections were made and we will be getting together on a more personal level in the near future. Lots of new freinds made today.
Thank You all for the support and encouragement. When is the next Picnic?
-- Scrap Wood's the best...the projects are smaller, and so is the mess!
