• Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. EDIT -> I manually batch updated about 25 people stuck on the email notification. Try logging in now with your password. EDIT -> May 8/23. I updated another bunch of users stuck on email notifications. Try to login if you are stuck. If you really can't get in contact us on facebook or if you know a forum member get them to ask us.

Ok - question to the Mods?@Janger ?, is there a way to set up a list so I can see who all would like to attend and then I can email out my address?

I guess I can ask anyone who would plan on attending to PM me- use the heading “I will attend” and provide for me your information so I can put together a big email.

I am thinking along the lines of say:

10am start
Chats, meets greets etc
11 am demo - will figure out something
12 - Lunch - hopefully great weather, can provide something like pulled pork on a bun with salad. Some drinks, etc
1:30 Demo #2
2:30 Demo #3

Wrap stuff up, more mingling and chatting etc

If folks can bring a fold up chair - excellent

I can put on a keg of beer if some are up for that (donations welcome) if there’s more need of time, no problem

If anyone wants to demonstrate something - let me know and we can organize. I am getting the tool sharpener up to function so we can play with that a bit.

If anyone want something shown on the lathe or mill or welding (within reason) we can try and accommodate that as well.

If anyone is coming a great distance - We can perhaps carry over to the Sunday - :)
- Your schedule looks good - maybe 9AM start? - but then I am an early riser
- I will be driving so not much beer req'd (although i love keggers)
- certainly a small fee to ensure all your cost are covered (depending on numbers you might want to consider a Port-a-Potty)
- help --- what is "PM me"? How?

I will be in, one way or another. Commercial flight, private flight or drive, but you said beer, right?

Hello Ontario Folks!

Just giving this thread a bump to get some responses.

This would be for the May 28th (Saturday) time.

So far I have the following:

@thestelster - good to come
@Canadium - Possibly if heath is up to it
@CWret -good to come
@Susquatch - Good to come if plants allow
@ShawnR - Working on transportation
@trlvn - Good to come (Unless his baby arrives) :D

@CWret is in the Burlington area and is willing to car pool up 3 passengers if that assists travel.

There has been a request to possibly have a tool swap/tools for sale period - that sounds great

Since we are now in May if folks could send me a PM that would be great.

We can get things going at any time on Saturday - I expect there could be some staggered arrivals due to the travel - should be no problem for early or later arrivals. I will try and organize things so that very little is missed by anyone coming.

I will start another post after a few more folks firm things up - if you have suggestions please add them to your contact information when you PM me - I am sure we will have other opportunities to get things together at later dates if this meet and greet is successful.
