Regardless, it is always a good time, and we all come away with memories and something learned. Look forward to meeting you.

Please join us. We have been getting together for many years now and always welcome people to join us in our time together. Good talk, good food, good people and beautiful work and ideas.
Speaking of food. Should we start a food list? I will bring lunch meats. How many coming so far?

I have these items that were left at the last get together. Who do they belong to?

Default Nov. 22nd Meeting

My name is David Smith. I've been making pens for the last ten years or so, and I have never had a conversation with another pen maker. So, I would like to attend your meeting if possible. My basic approach is to make pens out of as many different materials as possible and I have pens displayed in my study from around 950 different woods, acrylics, and tru stone marble materials. I wonder if anyone else has a silly habit like mine.
If possible, please send me instructions on the location of the meeting and the best route for getting their (I am coming from Tiburon).
Thanks and Cheers,

Ok, so the fun is nigh so let's get to planning!

Menu is the normal: build yer own sammiches. Cindy is bringing meats. We have most every condiment you can think of as well as multi-grain bread and sour-dough bread. We also have bottled waters.

We need
lettuce, tomatoes, etc
Salad (green, potato, or other)
Other drinks

Who is coming? Holler up. Let's get a head count!

shoot the breeze,
braggarts table (and you might guess we aren't limiting it to turned
wood so if you've done something fun and creative recently please bring it)
Gift exchange,
demo? Anyone have anything to show or anything they want shown?
What else? What am I missing?

If anyone needs the address or directions, please PM me.
