    I'm not really in a position to do any scheduling, but if someone schedules a get-together, I'd like to drop-in

    We would love to host a build session. The shop isn't ready yet for visiting workers however, as Stephen is still getting things organized. I'll talk to him and figure out when we could have people up at our end of things.

    How does the Saturday or Sunday between Christmas and New Years sound to you guys? Would that be something you could make?

    I was wondering if either the 29th or 30th would work for people.

    I may have to work the 31st, so 29th may be better for me, assuming I can make it...

    Ok, plans are for the 29th (a Saturday), starting at 11:00 and going until whenever. Send us an email if you don't already have our address and we'll give you directions.

    Even if you don't have too much to work on, we'd still love to have you stop by and show off what you have. There are a couple of people from my work interested in the hobby who would be quite interested to see some of the ships, etc.

    I have been given the all-clear and I plan to be there if the weather permits. I intend to sit around and shoot the bull, but I will bring at least the Moltke so that I can pretend that I intend to work.

    The next session will be Saturday, January 26th in Tumwater (Phill's place) Shop will be open at 10am. I'll get before Cartalk and get the fireplace going so it won't be so cold.

    For February, we might want to consider the North West Model Hobby Expo. The local RC boat club that meets in Lynnwood will have a pond there, and we're welcome to use it for non-battles when they don't have something scheduled there during the expo.

    February 8-10 in Monroe.

    I went to the NWMHE as a spectator a few years back. Was interesting. DOnt know that I really feel like driving up to Monroe for it this year though.

    Might be able to make the date at Phill's, not sure.
