I just got off the Phone with Mike Cunningham, the owner of the Dublin Woodcraft.

We Have use of the Classroom on SUNDAY 5 October. From 12pm to 4pm.
This is be an informal Meeting. Now lets Plan on some simple activites for this one,
A full scale bubbas ville is down the road. chime in with Ideas for demos, topics etc.

My Suggestions is that we have a show and tell, and perhaps a wood swap.


Our central Valley folks could carpool and the Sacto/reno folks could too!

I'll be there, my wife wants to know what she can bring. Pie, cookies, orderves(sp?) or a dish if there's going to be lunch.

Wife? Wife?? Those of us who attended the last BBville with you obviously missed something fun in the intervening months. Congrats!!!

I look forward to this BBville-Jr. It should be fun.

I think a "Show off" and "wood trade" would be good. I offer up (again) the "down and dirty how to get good photos of pens" session. We can go as deep as folks want (we could easily take 4 days rather than 4 hours) but at the shallowest I can give a "recipe" of what to do to get a good picture of your pen and that should only be an hour or so.

Marked the date. Anybody from Sacto want to carpool? LOML's Expedition hold 8. Hopefully Gas Prices will stay down and the econmy does't fall apart.

Tom, E-mail me on the car pool thing. Jay messaged me earlier about being there and I was assuming it was on a Thursday. Being a Sunday make it far more likely I can be there. the earlier hours work real good for me as well. I have a bit of an issue on reliable transportation from Reno to Sacramento but should not have a real hard time solving that. I think the Photo thing is a great idea. I can bring my camera and light set up stuff. I have a real small set up. I also have a lap top so people can see what difference things make. Actually I have several lap tops if needed, but my kids won't be talking to me if I take all three, lol. maybe some hands on time where members can actually see the changes lighting, position, background color etc have. You can learn a whole lot more in less time with hands on shtuff.
I'm really looking forward to meeting the lot of you. Gotta go sort thorugh my collection to pick out my show and tell items.
My wife is most likely coming as well, she said she doesn't trust me with a bunch of other penturners loose in a woodworking store for 4 hours. Knowing me I'll leave home in a pick up and return with a Semi.

The idea that there would be cookies at this meeting makes me with I wasn't on the other side of the country lol, and the "down and dirty how to get good photos of pens" session sounds like it would be fun too, photography is one of my other hobbies. I'll just have to wait until I have time/gas money to make it to a meeting on my side of the country I guess.
