Hi all! We had a great time at the Arizona LJ's picnic today. Had 7 LJ’s show up along with a couple of spouses.

All in attendance were:
Eddy, his daughter Cassie also an LJ, and his wife.
Chefshep and his wife (a future LJ)

We talked wood and traded ideas. I helped explain the process for creating a segmented turning. and all around had a LOT of fun. I would suggest to everyone to try and get a local gathering together. It is a lot of fun to meet the people we talk to on this great site and get to put a face to the names. You can learn a lot more about some one with one on one time, then you can just on-line.

We also had a few people stop by that asked about the club and sounds like they will be signing up soon.
Thanks Martin. The LumberJocks banner helped to draw people to the meeting.

I would also like to thank the guys at WoodCraft here locally for providing us a nice air conditioned class room with tables and chairs for our use. They had everything set up and ready for us when we arrived. Thanks Guys!

Again, A lot of fun and great company. I really enjoy these get togethers.

Thanks to all who helped with food and drinks.

Glad that you guys had a great get-to-gether.

And to Woodcraft for providing the meeting place.
