    Hey all, I thought it might be beneficial to start a Facebook group for only those who plan to attend the Rendezvous this year. That way people can interact, plan, etc. as themselves instead of their usernames.


    Hope this is okay to post.

    Unfortunately not looking good for Donna and I attending this year. Knee did not respond to treatment and have surgery scheduled for Aug 1st, was still planning on attending but found out yesterday that they don't want me to do any long car rides due to risk of blood clots.
    We are pretty disappointed as the Rendezvous has become one of the highlights of our summer, what can beat getting together with all our friends to share our mutual knife collecting passion.

    That's a shame John. but totally understand the reasoning behind the doctors recommendations. Hope for a quick recovery after the surgery. Will be different not seeing you and Donna at the rendezvous.
    Take care!!

    Glad you’ll be there Eric.
    John, I shouldn’t be making fun, it may bite me in the hind end. I’m due for another stent sometime soon and it could be shortly after the middle of next week. :(

    Funny you should be talking about xarelto Jack, I’ve been in a conversation most of the day with Interventional Radiology concerning xarelto and plavix.

    Jokings fine Lyle, enjoy it. I wish you all the best buddy and that everything goes well.

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes, it's disappointing, going to miss the special knives but what I'm really going to miss is all of you here on the porch.

    Very sorry to here that John . You and Donna will certainly be missed my friend . I can sympathize with you about knees . I had to put up with it for 46 years before changing it out . Good Luck with your surgery and follow the therapy my friend .

    John, not in the cards this year for me, but the one and only rendezvous I attended was a true highlight. I'm slated for a left replacement soon, (like a year ago):eek: but have delayed far to long. Nanc has little sympathy for me of late as she has "told me so" many times:)

    Heal up buddy, your in good hands with Donna at your side;):thumbsup:

    I'll be around the GEC plant rendezvous, and also up the road at the knife show. I'm sure I'll see some of you guys at one place or the other.

    The organizer of the new / revamped Queen show is in the club I go to, but he hasn't provided and I haven't been able to find a link or event page. Do you know of one?
