    No worry for taking knives or axes, etc to MA. I had a whole assortment last year as did other members.
    Leave firearms at home. No need to have them there.
    These events are a great way to get out and out names with faces.

    OK, I have figured out what I can bring to the gathering.

    I will bring cheesecake. That will be easy to transport and not require heating up. Will that be OK? I'll bring tortilla chips and homemade salsa, also.

    I really like the idea of the candle lighting using flint and steel.

    A couple of ideas for some modest show and tell stuff I can do;

    1. Long term hygiene kit for bug out bags or preps.

    2. Frame pack love show and tell (LK35, Telemark, Kelty Trekker, Eberlestock Warhammer). Anyone else? Someone have an Alice pack or something else?

    I gotta admit something here...
    I am shocked by the lack of interest...
    I really thought there would be more interest than just a handful of guys...

    I was thinking of bringing my "Big 'Uns"....BK9, Skrama, SCHF43. No reason, though, unless folks want to check them out.

    It's your first one, it usually takes a few to grow a group, sometimes the smaller meets are the ones that you remember the most. :)

    Yes sir. It was already established by all of you guys. I was just trying to step in and alleviate some of the work. Allow the Sr. Members to just come and enjoy.
    But I agree. Sometimes smaller GTGs are better.

    I have a request for anyone attending. Is there anyone that could bring some ash? I think it might be fun to try Rudiger rolls. The sort of ash needed is the white stuff, preferably sifted, but not absolutely necessary. Only a small amount is needed....I would guess that half a teaspoon or so is about what is used for each Rudiger roll.

    If we can get our hands on some ashes, and I bring some cotton balls, maybe we can incorporate it into the candle lighting or something.

    To be clear, I have never even attempted the Rudiger roll, so I won't be demonstrating anything...but I'll bet others are interested in trying it out, too.

    You mean ash from a fire place? I have plenty... If that's what you're referring to.

    Yes, preferably white ash from hardwood. You can make friction fire with ash and cotton. (Other materials work, too...but cotton is easiest)

    Trust me your better off having six saying they are coming and have ten show up than having twenty-five saying they are coming and only eight arrive.

    I was still kind of planning on everyone bring your own type of food entree and we could cook over a fire.
    Side dishes would be good to pick on.
    Does anyone have any other ideas?

    I don't have any specific topics to do a presentation on. I was figuring I would just bring my basic kit with me and see if anything comes up organically. Those seem to go well, the question of "Hey, have you ever done X?" and somebody says "Oh ya, this is what I do in that situation". Seems to lend itself to a good bunch of tips and tricks.

    Just trying my hardest to keep this going and get the interest up for our local members. I know I really appreciated the friendliness at my first one last year...
