    Have been collecting bits here and there over the years and this swap would be perfect.

    I know I'm a little behind on the gun, but If there is room available, I'd like to tie a couple for everyone.

    Richard, your in.
    Steve, I had not really decided yet. Sometime at the beginning of February. I like the face to face thing, so I was waiting for feedback from everyone to decide what works for most people.

    I was sitting in the ferry waiting area in Edmonds staring at Rory's yesterday on my way home from Mike Kinney's clinic on the Sky. Looks like they serve beer there, that is a plus. Seems like I could walk on a ferry and walk to the pub, that is a plus (for me, but you did ask). First or second week of Feb is good. Prefer it to be a Thurs or Fri night. Whatever works will work for me though. I know a few alternate locations MUCH closer to my house!

    Edmonds on a Friday night works for me.
    I have a survey course Thursday evenings for the next 9 weeks so Friday or any other night would be my option.

    Sounds like Friday Feb. 5 in Edmonds

    Chris, I think that is about as far north as it gets. Not a bad drive from B'ham. Does that work for you?

    How about the other west side guy, Bonzai? Walk on the ferry with Mumbles.

    Steve, your the only south sound one. Does the date work?

    I think the 5th is okay but I'm not sure I even know how to get to Edmionds. You'll have to send some directions. I'll let you know for sure.

    I have to tell you guys. I've tied several test patterns and have found only one so far that really works for me. The gift wrap stuff, I have found, is very stiff and difficult to work with. I've got a couple other ideas but this is far more of a challenge than it appears.

    Hey guys, unfortunately I'll be down in San Diego and won't be able to attend but I'll tie some up and ship it out to you guys if that is allowed.
    My apologies for the late notice!

    I've tried a couple patterns with some different pattern ribbons I have and like Steve said, some of this stuff is hard to use! I'll figure something out though.

    I'll have to mail mine out too as I only have Tues/Wed off. Plus I start my shift at 2200 hrs and go to 0600. Still yet to find a pattern I'm happy with.

    Banzai, if you get them to me I'll hand carry them.

    We still meeting at Rory's in Edmonds this coming Friday the 5th? I'm still up for the meet but need to get it on the calendar if we are a go. Banzai, still willing to meet you and bring yours over with me and bring back your share. We can meet around your new work schedule, let me know. If we're not on are we mailing? Beer always tastes better when shared with friends instead of through the mail.
