    Well, I have to give a hat to all the parties who show up and then count if any are left! I sorta doubt it....
    I'll post afterwards if there is..and, I will make sure that I also post a link if folks want to buy either the hearth.com or special editions (direct at my cost from Cafepress).

    It will be a great momento from this event Craig! I look forward to meeting you and the other Hearth.com members! You have kindled the spirit of woodburning in thousands of people and drawn them into one large group.. Most importantly these very people have learned the proper and safe way to burn so they actually enjoy woodburning..

    Well said Ray.

    btw, my list shows we should have at least 20 folks not counting spouses. Should be a grand time.

    Thanx Dennis! You certainly have mentored many people in the world of woodburning and sent them down the right track.. Of all the regular members you're at the top of the most respected members list..

    Ditto to Ray's sentiments for sure. And Dennis, and other have been a great help to me as well for sure. This is one of my favorite sites to spend some quality time on.

    Gamma Ray; if you happen to look out your front window tonight that won't be the MOON you see that will be Sav mooning you going buy in the car. I just got off the phone with him and they are in PA at this moment, they plan on stopping here on Wednesday.

    We plan on a ride around the property with Sav first then the Mrs. :red: pictures will be posted that day or night. Should I make Sav split horizontal?

    I'll be talking with Sav on Tuesday night, I need to find out what they would like for CHOW.

    @ray... Well, we wanted a B&B, however, I did check availability and got this "There are currently no rooms available at this property for the dates and other criteria you selected." for the 8th! Good for your economy !

    So, it's the night before. Who's gonna be up there Friday night? Mrs. Flatbedford and I will be there about dinner time. Can we plan some kind of get together? Maybe at the brewery down the street? I am not a great organizer, but I would like to meet up with whoever is there. I'll have my laptop with me so I can check PMs on the road and when I get there.
