With the dog days of summer approaching, and shop temps in Phoenix over 100 every day, I thought I’d see if there’s any interest in a Phoenix area LJ get-together at an air conditioned location that serves food and drinks for woodworkers who can’t work wood in this heat but would enjoy talking about those glorious cooler months when their shops were abuzz with saws and wood chips and dust, etc. You get the point.

Any Phoenix area LJs interested in an evening out in a couple of weeks? Any non local LJs silly enough to be in town this time of year are welcome too.

Thinking maybe August 5th, 6th, 12th or 13th late afternoon/early evening for dinner/drinks/wood talk/etc.

Chime in if interested. Or PM me and we’ll try to put something together to help us limp through these dark days.

Hey Matt,

I’m in on the 5th and the 12th. Saturdays work best for me. Love to see something closer to the East Valley, but am open. Keep me posted!

I’d be in as well. I’m pretty open to dates, just need some time in advance to let the boss know :)

Sounds good. Let’s target the 12th and considering the only LJs I know are in the east valley, I was thinking somewhere near the 101 in Tempe/Mesa or southern Scottsdale to allow proximity for east guys/gals and convenience for anyone further out.

I’d love to be there. But Snowflake to Phoenix is too far. Now, if it were Payson….

Hi Guys, Thanks for the replies. Jim, will try to plan another one early next year, would love to meet you in person.

Gene, if you can get down this way, we’d love to see you too. Though a get-together in Payson this time of year is much more appealing than being here in Phoenix.

As for the 12th, turns out I had a prior engagement, as I often do without knowing it.

Any objection to pushing it a week to August 19th?

As long as it doesn’t conflict with the Cardinals’ pre-season games in August, it sounds fun.

Argh. It will. Looks like Cards have a 7pm game on Saturday night the 19th.

Unfortunately, the 19th won’t work for me. I’m open to a future date though, keep me posted!

If we can get 5 votes for August 26th I’ll firm up that date and start figuring out a location.

I can make the 26th. So there’s 1.
