    I sat down today and planned my route out to East Petersburg. Looks like about 6 1/2 hours and 318 miles. I hope many of our members here can make it as I look forward to meeting a lot of you folks in person. I also hope the dates don't change....AGAIN....my calander is beginning to look like a game of X's and O's!! LOL!!
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

        Unfortunately I can't make it this year.
        The next one, you can count me in.
        I will have new shoes by then and if I start walking early I should meet the deadline.

          On the road again ...

          Good to know. I have the dates written in pen, which as we all know means nothing more than they need white out to alter.

          Unlike Neal, I have yet to figure out how I will actually get there but well, tank up the truck and head south is always a start when you live in Canada.

          I look forward to meeting folks from the forum and the faces of the Fox Chapel team. Also, definately want a signed copy of Neal's new book for my scroll saw library.

            Jeez--
            Sometimes I wish these things were held in the middle of the country. Even that would be along way from where I live. Traveling from here (Texas) to(where was that place, East Pignuckle?) there is about the same distance as from here to Honduras. Oh well, I wish you all the best and maybe if I win the lottery, or a seat on a Greyhound, I will attend one of these thingies some day.

              But if you're going to have a party, wouldn't you want to hold it at your house....I know there is going to be a scroll saw picnic in Alabama and Wisconsin this year--that's not quite as far a drive...

                Drive? Do people still do that? Kidding. I agree that most people would rather give a party in their own neighborhood, but what if you gave a party/picnic and no one came? I'm just venting. Alabama is 650 miles from here--I know, I was stationed in Montgomery with the USAF. Of course, there are always folks who live farther away than I do. The gang in New Zealand, Gill, some of the Canadians, etc, so I suppose I shouldn't gripe, but i will, I will. Moan, moan, grump, grump.

                  Having a "Field of Dreams" moment--Build it and they will come...

                  Or a Wayne's World 2 Moment "Book them and they will come"

                  A Fox Chapel moment "(Scroll it / Carve it / Burn it) and they will come...

                          I didn't get it until I read your post, Neal...

                          An Alladin moment...I'll have to remember that...

                          Now all my coworkers are looking over my cubical walls wondering why I'm laughing so hard...how do I explain it and keep a modicum of dignity...

                              I'm (almost) ashamed of that post, Dale. It's a joke which is innocuous enough until you realize what it's about. Unfortunately, there's no way to explain it in polite society.

                              Keep thinking about the logic of Bob's post:

                              a "Field of Dreams" moment - Build it and he will come...
                              a "Wayne's World 2" moment - Book them and they will come...

                              What did Aladdin do along the same lines? Now consider the double entendre !

                                Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                                • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                                Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
