The Tampa wood show is the 18,19 and 20th of March. I have sent out a number of Emails to people that inititally expressed interest in maybe a get together after the show, however the response was not to good.
I propose (as suggested by others) that about 3 o’clock on Saturday any LJ’ers interested could just meet in the lobby of the show for a little get to know get together for a little while. If you get stamped you should be able to return to the show (til 6 on Saturday).
Any other suggestions are welcomed but this seems the easiest for all.

Thanks for trying to arrange this Howie. I am planning on moving to your area as soon as we can get our house sold up here in NY. Won’t be there in time for the show, but it is good to know there are a few in the area that want to get together.

swirt: let me know when you get down here. Maybe we can get together and make some toothpicks or something.

I live in Iowa but I will be in Florida next week to attend some spring training games. I’m planning on visiting the Wood Show on Friday. I have tickets for baseball games every other day I am in Florida. Baseball, Woodworking Show and (hopefully) nice weather. Can it get better than that?

Rich: forecast is rain Sunday(50%) and I think 30% chance Wednesday or Thursday. Otherwise mid to upper 70’s.
Should be pleasant weather.

Thanks for all your efforts in arranging a meet Howie.
I hope to be down there that week and if I am, I will definitely meet you at the show.
I, like swirt, am in the final stages of getting my house outside Chicago listed and it’s taking a little longer then expected.
Hope to see you on the 18th.
Thanks again.

For what it’s worth I’ll wear a white baseball cap with Air Force Museum on it. Not likely there will be to many of them there.

If that is the same show that came through St. Louis a few weeks ago, I really enjoyed it. The few people I talked to said attendance was down and so were the features, but if they actually were, I don’t know how we could have fit more people in there.

Go, You’ll enjoy it.

Thanks Boardmaker, I’m sure it’s the same. It’s the same one I used to attend in Columbus Ohio a few years ago.
