Y'all need to pick a better time of year to host this thing. Might entice more northerners to attend if it wasn't at the height of summer and would be like walking in an oven. Some of us don't do well in temps over about 70 to 75!!! Maybe January would be a better time of year!
Y'all Yankees can do whatever you want in January, we're staying home!!

On the other hand, Sprung, there are those of us that live in that oven that wood freeze their butts off in January. April or October would be Ideal. ...... Jerry (in Tucson)

School goes back the 25th on the proposed schedule, so that kills that idea for me. Was hoping for an after Labor Day start as done last year.

The banquet dinner food is good.It is convenient that you can be at the symposium all day and not have to drive to get dinner.Plus you get to hang out with fellow turners.
