Arrow IAP COLLECTION TO ENGLAND !!!

This is very tentative, but actually may occur - if there is any interest.

My wife has needed to travel to Hazelwood, England several times for a project she has worked on - staying several days. I never was able to go with her, but this time I can.

And, she will be in meetings and business dinners, so I can do as I wish. In addition to general sight-seeing, maybe I can share a pint with some penturners and bring the IAP Collection to display.

The potential dates are May 23 -25, and possibly a bit longer. I should have no problem setting some lunch/dinner dates and traveling to some central locations.

Any interest?

Is that Hazelwood just north of Derby? About two hours from me.
It's also not a million miles from one of the UK's better toy shops....Turners Retreat.
Could be a good place to meet up....and stock up...

I'd try really hard to get there just to meet you and see the collection....

When will you know for sure?

Sure do..Woodturning tools, courses, chucks and lathe accessories | Pen turning and pen kits - Turners Retreat

Strangely they now use the name of the old Craft Supplies which they took over a while back.

Yes, Wifey (Nancy) will be at a chemical plant in Hazelwood, just north of Derby.

All will depend on her travel arrangements with her employer (Lubrizol) and her bosses. All I can do is wait until she gets the OK and books her travel. As soon as this gets done I'll post again and PM you.

I do plan on driving around and checking the local sights, so within 2-3 hours of Hazelwood is fine.

You folks will have a better idea of a central meeting location, so if this does happen you can simply tell when and where.

Got my fingers crossed!

Wayne: That is a possibility!

I just got off the phone with your wife. She said you've been working very hard this past year and really deserved some rest and relaxation so she hired me to carry your luggage and protect you from any scurvy rats that you might encounter over there.
When do we leave?

She forgot the scurvy rats on this side of the pond.

My wife traveling with 2 man-servants... Yup, sounds like her

Did she mention that you better like small batch Bourbon if you want to get along with her....

It might be tough but I'll suffer through it... I'm packed and ready to go.
