They are finalizing the final demo of the day, and once that is nailed down they will let me know the time available.

Getting excited to see everyone there, and the IAP Collection!

As nice as the collection is...it is secondary to meeting its curator. You all have a good time.
I prefer caretaker, chaperone, delivery driver, etc... Its all about the Pens! I'm replaceable (Jeff, ya listening ?), but these pens will be on display beyond my years!

But as a perk to me, I'll get to make some new friends, and that is invaluable in this day-and age!

Just heard that we are being asked if a 3:00 PM time would work for us. I'm thinking that 3:00 to 4:30 would be a good time for most. The store would be open until 6:00, so if we run over, I think that will be fine. I believe you will be the last item on the program for the day.

Any other thoughts from Mark, Wayne, or others before I confirm the time?

Thanks,
Ed

This is fine on my end. I may have to leave early Sunday and be back in Medina, OH by Monday morning for a possible meeting.

I was hoping to stay a few days and go back easy, but it may be a quick drive back.

But I have a hotel room Friday night, and all day Saturday appears fine.

Mark

OK, got my plans set!

I will not need to hurry back to Ohio! I resolved my business issues this past Wednesday.

So, as of now: I will drive to Minnesota Friday. Get to the shop on Saturday before opening. Then In the evening I will visit the thriving metropolis of St Cloud on Saturday PM and all day Sunday, leaving on Monday (although I can also stay Monday and leave Tuesday. This depends on how much Wayne and I get into shop issues!

This will be a relaxing trip now that I have my business issues settled!

Looking forward to meeting old and new friends! (and displaying the IAP Collection).

Regards, Mark

Mark,

Just catching up and getting my own plans for the weekend firmed up. Earlier you had said you were planning to drive to Eau Claire Friday and make it in to the store on Saturday. Are you now going to be in MN on Friday now? If so, are you going to be here in time for a dinner with others? Would you want to do something like that?

Also, it sounds like a trip up to St. Cloud Saturday evening. Are you going to be in Bloomington long enough after the presentations at Woodcraft to plan for a dinner with the group before you head up there?

Thanks,
Ed

Hi Ed:

I plan to leave Strongsville, OH. early Friday morning, about 6 - 7 AM. With a 12-13 hr drive, I won't get to Eau Claire until late, so I suspect Friday night won't be a good meet-up. I might get there earlier, but I hate to plan on it.

Saturday evening after the Woodcraft event is fine - I have no deadline to get to St Cloud. A dinner with any available folks would be great!

I can also stop by back in Bloomington on my way back on Monday. Maybe for Breakfast or lunch. Hopefully my trip back is unscheduled and I can go as I wish. I hope to be in Chicago on Monday PM.

Looking forward to meeting folks!
