I will be there. I'm pretty new so anything is a bonus for me, but maybe some segmenting demos or ideas would be nice.

Ok, it looks like the meeting will be at my House in Alvin, TX. Time: 9:00 AM-2:00 PM.

I will do a demo on casting Polyester Resin Blanks.

We can order some pizza for lunch so plan on pitching in about $5 for lunch. I will supply some soft drinks and water.

Also, bring your pens and whatever else to show and a blank or two for a blank swap. As always, I will have my Acrylic blanks, Carbon Fiber and Fiberglass tubed blanks, Acrylic cross blanks, some pen kits and some other items for sale.

If you have not been to my house please send me a PM and I will reply with my address.

Thanks,

If anyone other folks are into geocaching it could be kinda cool to do a little mini geocache with some blanks or something in it.

Is there anyone doing custom ( kitless pens) i would like to see it done. Maybe not completely but partials of each section. I'm having most trouble with the front section. Ok the other parts as well.

I am cleaning the shop now and will have a lot of different things to sell for the local group first. If they do not sell than I will post in the classifieds.

I will have some exotic wood Blanks, snake skins, gator jaw bones, molds, pen kits, antler, wooden boxes, steam punk parts, brass tubes, powder coating system, seam rippers, pen cases, displays and other things.

How was the meet (and geocaching) ?
Bummer I couldn't make it because I was off on business in SE Asia for 5 weeks.

The gathering was good, good demos, Don did a demo on decals, lots of fun as usual,picked up quite a few tips and answers as questions were asked.

The pizza was ...pizza. :wink:

No geocaching, kd5nay didn't show.

In my opinion, it was a good gathering. :smile:

Looking forward to the next meet already.

I didn't need no stinkin kd5nay for geocaching!!

Ended up just grabbing a few as I was running late both going and coming but the area is full of great hides and worth a daytrip there

This one's worth the trip just to see the huge majestic oaks. GCR8J4 I didn't realize the town had such huge Oak Trees. Need to grab the wife and head back for a day of caching the area.

Can't forget to mention this one either GC82D6 and if you're a Nolan Ryan fan here's one for you GCD899

OK that's enough for now LOL enjoy
