Hello everyone! Finnally got a confermation on a meeting place for us.

WoodWorker Source is going to let us have our picnic at their place.

Nov 7th. Try to get everyone together for lunch around 1:00PM

They will be open from 8AM to 5PM and I will be there all day, so just drop by if you like. Or hang around and meet everyone!

Will have a Bar-B-Que for hamburgs and more.

They are supplying table and chairs for us, so no need to drag your own in.

Would like to get a Firm attendance list so I/we can plan accordingly.

Please PM me and I will drop you an E-Mail with all details.

Lets make this a fun and unforgettable time! Yahoo!

Next year if you want more of us snow birds try a schedule in January-March time frame for the Phoenix area. Would 2010 be too early?

Hi All! We are up to 10 confirmed coming to the picnic. Lets see who else is going to attend. Please let me know either PM or post here please.

Also we have the following being brought, Hamburger and buns, Fruit Salad, Potato Salad, Catchup, Mustanrd, Plates, Cups, Utensils, Napkins, and Bottled Water. What would you like to bring?

Also lets not forget that I will have a BRAG table set up so we can all show off our projects.

Would also like to know if anyone has anything to trade? I have some Birds Eye Maple Pen Blanks that I can trade off if anyone is interested in them. Would like some small pieces of Veneer to use for rings or glue-up turnings.
What do you have to bring along?

Just a reminder, the location is the North Phoenix AZ WoodWorkers Source Store.
18115 N. Black Canyon Hwy
Phoenix, AZ 85023

Looking forward to meeting everyone soon.

Just saw the posting for the Phoenix picnic. Would have loved to attend, I have often thought about an Arizona get together, but it is too big a trip for this old disabled body to make especially since I have my son’s wedding the night before.
Have fun and maybe next year I can join you guys.
