I just checked the schedule for 2012/2013 and find Woodworking Shows will NOT be on the West Coast. No shows in the Pacific Northwest, Sacramento, or Sorthern California.

Is this true?

I can’t believe they are foresaking us!

Looks like you need to drive to Denver to get to one.

I’ve got 2 I can go to Baltimore and NJ and If I want to visit my relatives KC.

I missed last year because of Family Christmas being held after New Years.

Don’t look to the Midwest. They’ve closed the one in Chicago, too. But they are having one in Milwaukee. Go figure!

Tampa was not to my liking last year so I probably won’t go this year. 1st time I’ve missed a show(Tampa and Columbus Ohio) in 8 years.
They just seem to be less each year.
