Calling all Oregon and Washington LJ’s you know who you are. There is a woodworking show in Portland November 6-8. I was thinking of going as I have a few days of free hotel space that I have to use or loose.
I was thinking that if we could get a bunch of us to go to the show, we might just meet up sometime that weekend for a get-together. You know, when your feet ache from being on the exhibition floor and you just want to put your feet up and sit a spell and talk woodworking with friends in person. Anyone game? I have flushed out 4 folks on LJ’s from the Seattle/Tacoma area, anyone in Oregon keeping track of LJ’s down there?

Portland has much to do besides a woodworking show, so if you have a spouse who is not interested in woodworking they could come along and do their own thing while the show is going on. If you google it, there are coupons and admission is only $10.00 for all three days. Classes, demos, tools to buy – you know you want to :-)

Surprisingly, I WILL be in Portland that weekend and may be able to get away to meet up with people. We will be there visiting our Grandma… so not sure I can make it to much of a show. However, we could meet up with anyone who would like to do a lunch, dinner, or coffee thing. If I did go to any part of the show… it would be on Sunday. I think. HAH!

People would also be welcome to come to lunch and dinner with us while we treat grandma… she speaks no Engrish and I would be glad for the company. ;]

I’ll be there on Sunday, for sure. I’m helping in the Guild of Oregon Woodworker’s booth from 10a – 1p. After that I’m free.

I am trying to get there on Saturday. I went to the one in Seattle in April and really enjoyed it. I didn’t catch up with any Jocks though. We need a sign or secret handshake or something.
