    if this is going to be a Kitsap get together i am in. Seems like Voodiez wouldnt be a bad place seeing as we already have a few of the group that meets there...

    No worries Daryle.

    Big E, we'll wrap this one about a month before you get here. When you arrive let me know and we'll try another one.

    Check Post #1 for the updates...mark your calendar as appropriate. Get to tying!

    OK, so let me be the first to post a conflict :eek: I won't be able to make the scheduled date and time, so was wondering if we could bump it one day back to Friday the 15? Will this work? I would hate to miss out.bawling:

    Thanks guys!

    Either works for me! Glad it was not too much later than that, since I'm trying to plan a trip to Wisconsin to pick up my puppy at the end of May.

    Dang you guys are like a bunch of little girls. I thought that a week day would be a better option than a weekend but since it is an open discussion...

    I'm okay for whatever works the best for the most. Remember this is a swap with a twist and it might take another level of committment, plan alignment and such. Keep the preferences flowing.

    Would a meeting nearer the ferry on Bainbridge or in Kingston be better for those traveling from the outer reaches of Kitsap and from across the pond? Just thinking in print.

    Yes, but I will go with the majority on this one. Now, what to tie?

    I agree that a week night would be best, why not pick 2 or so dates and then everyone can vote on which day will be the day? A majority wins type deal.

    Two items for a simple majority decision...

    1) We will meet face to face to hand over flies on Wednesday May 13th or Friday May 15th at 6pm.

    2) We will meet in downtown Poulsbo at Voodiez or in downtown Winslow at Doc's on agreed upon date from above at 6pm.

    I know the variable of making this face to face will make this take a bit more planning and committment. I appreciate everyone for entering and coming up with a best for most solution.

    The OUT CLAUSE...if you can't meet on the date selected then you must coordinate an earlier meeting with me. I'll probably still buy you a beer if there is time. I'll then hand your flies out when the majority group meets. Thanks again.

    May 13 1st choice
    May 15 2nd choice

    Don't really know the area, so I can't really give an opinion on the place, as long as the beers cold!

    Rob, at what market did you buy that avatar fish? Although Friday is not the apparent first choice it seems doable by most that have posted a reply thus far. I'll await to hear from more of our swappers. If that Friday, the 15th of May does not work for you speak up now please.
