    So, what do you guys, like, do for 6 hours?

    (I have friends in-state I might encourage to stop through, all vicarious-like).

    Well, for 6 hours we greet old friends and meet new ones. We put real names and faces where there were only internet handles. We admire knives, talk knives, spend money and support Scott. And we drink a few beers. Its a fun day! I wish you could be there pertinux. I'd like to meet you.

    Most of us will be there. Dylan too. Plus usually Todd Hunt and his crew and several other makers and their folks. North Carolina is a state full of great knifemakers. And their guild is one of the best. The GA Knifemakers Guild patterned themselves after the NC organization.

    Thanks for your responses!

    @Fiddleback, I love hearing your heart for the event-- puts it in a whole new light.

    Do the Shop Dogs of the South* also Represent, or is this a humans-only gathering?

    Regardless, I shall pass this info along and see what comes of it.

    * we need a calendar....

    Ivey cannot be trusted in crowds. Imagine a queen that is 1' tall and real bitchy about it. Plus she's a jealous little shit. She'll bite someone if they try to touch me or Phillip.

    Soccer tournament all day, ugh, would have been a great excuse to ride the bike up. Enjoy sounds like a lot of fun.

    Theys got knives there.

    Keep eyeing those horse-engraved half-tracks.

    Still wondering why no one has bought the bolstered sapphire monarch with a swedge.

    Actually, my question was rhetorical-- I was there! :cool:

    I'm sorry I didn't know you were there, as well-- although, come to think of it, I recognized your son!

    Whoops. :oops:

    Thanks for the link. :thumbsup:
