So far that make four of us.
I believe that here is at least one lumberjock living in Sandy and one more in the south.
So far I have found:
Mars72
Max
deeker
Josh
3DBMe
utahwilson
VanLewis
Garp
GKP741

live in Utah and probably more do.
What should we do?
Have a barbecue somewhere?
What do you think?

May be we should wait for better weather to meet.
For me a better day would be a Saturday.

Bert, I was making a joke that only a few people will understand.

Anytime is good for me…........as long as I get a couple weeks notice.

And, any day of the week is good for me.

Just need travel time figured in.

90 minutes to SLC.

It would be great to see you again…..........and to meet the other folks in our area.

Bruce.

Bruce,
I believe I get it. Mine would be 11-1 now for the new year.

All,

Saturdays would be good and I think better weather would be great.
Just to offer it up – I have an HOA park that I pay into in my neighborhood (West Jordan) that has a couple BBQ’s and tables… Green space for the kids to run if any wood want to come. I could reserve that! Or maybe we could meet in the middle of all of us so travel isn’t so long for some. I am game for most anywhere that I can talk or do some woodworking.

Anybody else?

Suggestion – why not shop tours. Someone can sponsor an open house each month (or more) and we can visit, tour a shop, and dream of new ways to spend time/money. Visit about challenges/problems/issues. Set a couple hours aside in an afternoon for a visit. Host can provide some kind of finger refreshments so it isn’t a big production.

Most of us have some kind of heat so it could happen year round. SLC.

I’m in Murray at the moment. Might be moving to Taylorsville soon, though.

That, in my opinion, is a WONDERFUL idea.

I haven’t heard of any Jocks close to me, but maybe Orem-Provo.

Point being…......car-pooling to more remote Jocks.

I am 90 minutes to 2-hours to SLC, depending on where someone is in the valley….........and traffic.

But, I would be happy to stop and pick-up any Jock that lives at a place I will drive right by going up I-15

I like the idea of shop tours too! Just not sure every one will be impressed by my massive collection of tools. Consisting of a bench table saw, scroll saw and jet 1221vs lathe. Ooo I almost forgot the shop vac. No heat in the garage yet hope to get some of that installed this summer.

I think its a great idea let’s keep working towards doing it.

Since I started the idea and since I have large heated shop in SLC, I think that I should be the first one to host our group to be.

I propose that we meet the first Saturday of next month which will the 1st of February.
We could meet a around noon and have some finger food and a good time together.

I live close by the Community College on Redwood Road in Taylorsvile.
