Calling all New England (and other) Lumberjocks! We have reached the month of March which means April and May will soon follow. Today I spoke to my contact at North Bennet Street School (NBSS) and arranged a date for the meeting. It will be on Saturday, May 8, 2010 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. including a leisurely lunchtime in downtown Boston. For those who may not have seen the first post or who want a reminder of the discussion and potential participants, you can read it here: “Meeting” http://lumberjocks.com/topics/14134. I will make an entry to the first post directing folks to this one since many will have placed a “watch” on that one.

So at this point it would be nice if, when you know you can or cannot attend, you would post a reply here so I can keep a running count. I will continue to provide updates as necessary and as promised, directions, parking and other such details. I’m looking forward to it and hope you are too.

Lenny if I could get Captain Kirk to let me use his transporter I’d be there for sure. To bad it’s so far away.

It looks like May 8th is a popular birthday for LJ’s sons! Mine turns 8 that day, so I will not be able to go.

Hi!

I’m new to lumberjocks, but I’d love to meet you guys. I graduated from the school last spring and still live in the North End.

That’s only 90 miles from me, but alas we are leaving just a few days after that to go to Dover, DE for the NASCAR race. The weekend will be reserved for packing the camper and getting it “sea worthy””.

Ellen, Lou, Purplev and Paul I will consider as definites. JohnGray, I know you will be with us in spirit. Dusty, Thiel and Chuck, you guys have more important matters to attend to that day. Enjoy your sons’ birthdays! Fred and Danny, I will consider you to be probables. Eli, welcome to Lumberjocks. It will be great if you join us. I might send you a personal message (PM) tonight. I’d be interested in knowing if you know Claire Fruitman and I might have some questions about the school. Kerry, maybe you can catch the next one.

Lying in bed last night, I got the idea of bringing my Kreg pockethole jig and offering a demonstration of its use as well as allowing folks who may never have used to one to try their hand at it. Also thought it might be nice to have someone who feels confident enough with a hand plane (not me) to offer a similar demonstration on how to tune one. Any thoughts on these ideas? Anyone else have an idea? Sharon (Purplev) are you still willing to do a tutorial on Google Sketchup if folks would like that?

Don’t count me out just yet , my friend…I’m not sure what might be planned for that day….sometimes we get together before or after the birthday as a surprise to the guest of honor : )

Lenny: yes most definitely I can run that if there is still any interest from people. do you know if they might have projectors/large monitors that one can hook up a laptop to?

I can also bring a couple of different hand planes and show how to tune them up, and what parts are more important in each of them

Len – you can always bring the whole family over and celebrate it there – we can disguise the get together as a surprise party ;)
