The next quarter sawing project.
« on: April 04, 2017, 04:05:40 am »
The next quarter sawing project will be on May 19 and 20. All are welcome to come. For those that haven't been or the others that can't remember how to get here the address is.
1607 Capps Browning rd.
Rentz, Ga. 31075
GeneWengert-WoodDoc  has been very generous and has offered to teach a one day grading course on the 19th for those that are interested. The only cost will be for the literature.  There will be a sawing the log in half with a chainsaw demo. There has been a few requests for this. This demo will come after Gene has finished his class, so it might be later on Fri. or earlier on Saturday depending on how long things take. Then the sawing and eating will take place on Saturday.
Lets keep a head count going so we will know how many to feed. I will be there so I make 1.
If you are planning on bringing something to contribute to the eating please chime in on what you are bringing so others will know and we don't have several of the same thing. Looking forward to seeing everyone that can make it.

Jake, I've been wanting to attend one of your get-togethers for years.  I'll check with the Doc to see if she's going to be home that weekend, and if so I'll plan on attending.

Missed this last year and plan to be there this year.  How far away is the State Park?  That might be a good place to stay for a couple of nights.  We'll think of what to bring and add that later.

(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
Robert - that's one fine log.
Thinking though, she's a bit old and sunbleached.
so, I dropped a fresh log for the project.

lookit that baby!
Being from Canada and all, couldn't figure out what species this bad boy is . ..
But, no bark and straight a s a gun barrel.
Maybe 4x4American or WDH can pinpoint it.
Anyway, maybe a good log for quartersawing?

etroup10, I have carpooled with other Forumites to almost every event I have been to, and I highly recommend it. You will have almost as much fun going to and from as you do at the event. Start doing a little networking and you will come up with something. ;)

Pat and I have a scheduling conflict that will prevent us from attending which brings the list down to 22.

Yup, Chickin Crispin, but due to distractions, we have not been able to do one for too many years, but we will again. 

Pat & I will be attending Andy White's Memorial Service on May 17th.  Attending both events would be a burden especially since they are in opposite directions.  As David said above; "you can't do everything" which is sad but true.

I was also looking forward to meeting the Magicman and Miss Pat.  I just found out today that my mother has to have a pretty serious surgery on May 9, and is expected to be hospitalized for about a week.  If she is doing well and my daddy can handle her care I still plan to attend.

Thank You.  I didn't mention "why" in my initial reply because this is tough.  Andy White was a very Special Man and a very Special Friend.  :'(

I'll be there Friday afternoon, Lord willing.  :)

Scott, La Quinta Inn is nice and is close by.   ;)

Thanks Dan.  La Quinta had good ratings but their prices were pretty high (best deal that I could find was about 120 a night including taxes - ouch!).  I ended up booking at the Super 8 instead for about 1/2 of the cost (and almost as good of ratings).

I'm looking forward to meeting / seeing everybody there.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate for me to ride down instead of driving.
