    Just a few weeks. Maybe we can have a get together in town in the evening after the show? Love to see some of you folks out here for the day.

    Sounds like a good idea Bob. I don't know if my wife would be up to hanging out with a bunch of dudes, but it would be worth stopping by for at least a bit.

    Sounds good Bob, Do you know what time the last ferry leaves Port Townsend?
    Where's a good place to meet and maybe get something to eat after the show? And of course some brewski's:beer2:

    We can connect at the show during the day. Then figure out who's game for a gathering. Lots of simple choices all over town. A good local burger and beer place is fine downtown.

    The Ferry in Port Townsend only goes to Whidbey Island at Keystone. Otherwise you take either the Seattle/Bainbridge Island Ferry or the Kingston/Edmonds Ferry. Driving time from Bainbridge or Kingston is about 50 minutes.

    That would be the ferry that us wHidbey Islanders would be taking Bob.
    I'll find out when I go down by the ticket booth tomorrow.
    Looking forward to it; some how missed the show last year.

    Is there a schedule up for the times and where the seminars are???

    I'm heading over from E'burg tonight and am curious as to when some of the seminars start so I can see what I want. I remember last year some of them were filled to capacity.
