    Whose coming to the mid winter blahs picnic!

    We need to get a rough head count of how many are planning/hoping/dreaming of attending the Mid Winter Blahs Picnic. I'd like to attach a poll to this thread, but either I'm getting (more?) senile, or something's changed; I can't remember how to attach the poll to this thread. So please leave feedback as to how many in your group will attend. Remember, this is a family picnic event, being held inside a very nice activity building behind the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church
    198 Pleasant Ridge Church Rd
    Shelby NC
    Pleasant Ridge Church Road is right off Highway 74 just west of Shelby city line.

    Free door prize raffle for some great

    Activities this year will include demonstrations by
    Adam Davis and family, pen turning by Dakota, burning hamburgers and wienies by Adam!
    And for all the kitchen queens (and kings), Mike Davis says bring all your kitchen knives, he will demonstrate sharpening and sharpen your knives too!

    Submit your best piece, made in the past year for the Woodworkers Choice competition
    Bragging table for your work pieces
    Tool Swap tables inside tools and stuff
    Wood swap, generally outside
    (New) Magazine and book swap table. Bring all those old magazines and books to trade or give away--I must have 2 tons of mags myself

    We will plan to eat lunch close to 12:00. Hot dogs and burgers, and all manner of covered dish treats and desserts. The raffle will be held at 1:00.
    Come on out for the funnest event of the Winter and enjoy the company of some of the very best folks in the Carolinas!

    Bruce,

    I'll be there.

    Please add the date to your post above, as well as to the "Special Events" calendar. I missed writing it down the last time you posted, and now can't find that post either.

    Bruce,

    I'll be there by myself. For Charley's benefit, the Picnic is at 10AM on February 23rd.
    Every day brings a new adventure -- it is great to be retired!

    I'll be there, hopefully have my wife and two kiddos as well.

    I will bring a lathe and pen making supplies, Dakota can do pen demos while I burn burgers.

    looks like all the way at the bottom of the page when starting a new post there is an additional options section, one of them is Post a Poll.

    not sure if you can add one after a post has been started

    It doesn't show up for me; I am using a notebook and that could be why as it has limited capabilities.

    I was finally able to figure out how to add a poll to this thread but screwed it up, but at least there's a poll.
