    Is anyone going to be there this June?
    I will be there with no agenda so far, my dance card is empty.
    If you have a table let me know the number either here or in a PM
    I will try my hardest to get over to see you.

    Haven't attended in many years. There was quite a group meeting from last year.

    like last year, for any out-of-towners (and locals ;)), if you are considering coming to BLADE, but don't want to spend money for a motel, I'll be hosting a weekend long BCUSA mini-meet in the woods behind my house for folks to set up a tent or hammock, camp and socialize.

    I can handle probably a dozen people comfortably. We'll have access to a refrigerator and bathroom/shower, a fire pit and plenty of fire wood.

    I'll be here Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings and Friday and Saturday evenings after the show. y'all are welcome to come any time but if I'm not back yet, I expect there'll be a couple guys who have been here before(@Keyser Söze @nograveconcern @Tennessee @hamanky ) to show you where the water and bathrooms are, just pick a camp spot and settle in.

    PM me your phone number and I'll text directions...

    EDIT: there's two threads and I posted this in both...

    No idea if I'll be spending the night this time, but I definitely want to stop by and hang out for a bit. Looking forward to the show. I need to pick up a bunch of supplies.

    looks like a couple of you guys are thinking about attending this. I just want to say again, if the thought of driving (or flying) here and back in one day or weekend is making you rethink the idea, I would be honored to have you here.

    I have extra tents, hammock/tarps, and sleeping bags if you're traveling light so don't worry about that. you'll have access to indoor bathroom/shower and a full kitchen/refrigerator (if you even need that.

    one thing I was hoping, was that someone would come down from somewhere the other side of Lawrenceville, TN and could stop in and give a lift to @T. Pollock. I know he would love to attend the show and share a fire with us but isn't able to drive this distance, and I'd love the opportunity to return some of the hospitality he has shown this group over the years...

    again, PM me for my cell number and address and don't be shy about adding a person or two to your list...
