Default Nawlins' "Burl Blow-out"

IMPORTANT UPDATE
PARTY CANCELLED

As some of you know, my Father has had serious health issues for a while now. His recent decline in health over this past weekend has prompting the need for 24 hr indigent care. Maggie & I will be communting back & forth to the West Coast of Florida (she's there now) to provide family support and begin getting his estate in order. I've come to the conclusion that no matter how well you may think your prepared for a situation, reality is quite different. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused for cancelling the party, we were looking forward to getting together with our friends.


OK,
Most of you know my wifes from New Orleans and we have 1800+ lbs of burl/burl cap. The burl bin is sitting where my wifes 72 Superbeetle used to be and she wants the space back! (little does she know that space will be our casting & stabilization area!)

We are extending an invitation for friends/family members to attend the 2009 IAP NOVA Nawlins' Burl Blow-Out Party, Sunday June 28th from 11:00 - 7:00 PM. The wife's cookin up authentic French Quarters Cuisine and we have lots up burl to cut up & give to eager burl beavers on Sunday. Folks, it just does'nt get better than this! Burl & Gumbo!!! Hot dogs & Hamburgers for the kids.

Bring family/bring friends... good time for all. Special prizes will be drawn for a few lucky winners. A display table will be set up for members to display their great work & a member photo will be taken to be distributed email as a commerative.

Rob,
If you travel from Mansfield, we've got a guest room with your name on it.

I'm in the same boat as rjwolf3, so can he and I just wish we were there and be there in "spirit" only? Would that count for anything.

BTW, can't you just dish up some of the Cajun and wood in a "to go" bos and send it to us? Please advise as to where I should send my address.

Oh yea, I asked first you know!! I just want a decent burl I can make a 10"x5" dish out of ... that's all!

If I can convince the wife, I'll be there. Shouldn't be too hard since she will be officially out of the Navy at that point and will have nothing to do but be a stay at home incubator at the moment.

According to Google Maps, from the center of Mansfield OH to Jim's house is 444 miles and is estimated to take 7 hours and 23 minutes.
