Lightbulb Meet for a coffee? A little "show-n-tell" ??

We used to get together pretty regularly "back in the day".

I know I've not been around too much in the last couple of years, but I'm reading the forum over and even turned a couple of pens here lately!

Jim (Druid) suggested getting together some time, so here's a bit of a "bug in your ear"!

Some time during January, on a time/date/place yet to be determined, let's meet for an informal lunch and maybe a little show-n-tell, maybe a pen blank swap! Maybe we could do a field trip to a wood store?

Think of a place that is kind of central to all those wishing to attend (NoVa somewhere) and a Saturday (?) morning OTHER THAN THE THIRD SATURDAY! This leaves us January 5, 12, or 26. (Actually, YOU can do it any Saturday, but I cannot meet on the third Saturday of the month!)

Post your suggestions/availability here and let's put it together!!
ALSO, note your time preferences in your messages below as well, an afternoon meetup is OK too!!

VOTE FOR YOUR PREFERENCE IN THE POLL ABOVE!!

OK with me... place your vote! I'm flexible except for that third Saturday.

Can you shoot out a pm when the meeting is confirmed in case I miss the post?
Thanks in advance. Sounds like fun!

My daughter has cheerleading on Saturdays from 9 to 2, so unless it is an evening meeting, I won't be able to join. :(

Sounds fun! I've got some tentative plans that may conflict, so I can't really answer until those plans solidify.

Any time on the 26th works for me. The 5th is right out, and the 12th I probably can't make it (but my current obligation might change).

Hi all,

Sounds like a fun time. Do we have a place figured out? Looks like most want to try to meet up on the 26th. It may be a hike for some, but I can probably get us the use of the shop at the Leesburg Woodcraft. The Springfield one has a Windsor Chair class going on that weekend.

A place and time needs to be decided, since the 26th was the overwhelming favorite!

I would suggest somewhere in Springfield, since that seems to be the most central location to everyone. I have no objection to Leesburg, but that's a pretty good haul for the Maryland participants.

I don't think we have to meet at a wood-related location, any restaurant that could accommodate a table for 6 or 8 would do. (with a little room to stretch out)

Time and place folks? (James needs something after 2:00 to travel from Stafford)

There is a restaurant there at the same shopping center as Woodcraft, that's where all my wood-carving friends meet!
