    March 29 and 30th Saratoga springs NY woodworking show

    so is anyone from this board attending the show this year?
    Im tempted, only because there is a 3 hour class on scroll sawing, and Id love to learn some technique and could use all the help I could get. Seems like a nice hobby to get into as I get up there in the years, no heavy lifting, and if I get any good at it, makes some beautiful projects.

    Id like to meet up for dinner, lunch, hangout, whatever, so please pm me and let me know.
    I will be up there with my wife again, as she has cleared her schedule
    If I do come,(90% sure Ill be there as of today), my wife would love to have company during the day, Id be most likely dropping her off at Saratoga raceway for a few hours so she can play penny slots.(ya hear that sayer)
    Wed be arriving Saturday mid afternoon and staying through sunday night.

    I think I got the schedule of demonstrators posted correctly, hope Im allowed to do this.

    these are free demos I believe, you just have to register for them.(I never paid in the past)
    if someone could repost it in chart form, would be easier to understand, I cant figure it out.

    Im sure Ill see Don Orr up there.

    Were going Allen (as long as you promise penny slots only). We will be in touch to set things up. I think we will plan on staying overnight also.

    I understand the reluctance of people to want to go out of their way to meet me and maybe have dinner and chat a bit, but larry, sayer, ken, can vouch for me when I say my wife is a total sweetheart, so she balances out my personality a bit, makes it more tolerable.
    so speak up, it can be a mini tourdewood gathering.

    She must be a miracle worker.

    Allen, I'd go WAY out of my way to meet you in person. I'm hoping it'll happen one of these days, but this one won't be doable.

    I'd love to. It's not all that far from me but I don't think it's in the cards for this spring.

    Yeah, I'll be there again. I'll be hanging out at Totally Turning most of the time. Separate event at the same location. I have volunteer duties all day Sunday. I commute about an hour to the event so I don't hang around long when things close down.

    I can also vouch for Allen's wife being a sweeyheart. I have only met her a couple of times but she is a keeper for sure. Allen, you're a lucky man !
