    At the end of our most recent meet (https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/nj-ny-pa-regional-meet-up-april-27-29.220078/) @hdlv suggested another carving meet soon.

    We get extremely busy at the chruch I serve as Pastor over the summer so I thought I might put out feelers for a meet late in May. www.cpcchester.org

    These are a single day, from 10-4 or and we can do it inside if the weather is bad or outside if the weather is good. We are easy to get to, have ample parking, and an AMAZING kitchen to use. Look here for ideas of what to expect, all of the previous meets are linked in the thread: https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/nj-ny-ct-pa-carving-meet-4-feb-10th-2018.212026/

    I usually set up a few chopping stumps and supply plenty of fresh green wood for carving.

    If outside I will bring over our fire pit for atmosphere, cooking, and easy disposal of scraps.

    We should also have a gas grill available for cooking as well.

    People of all skill levels are welcome to attend as there is plenty of knowledge and tools to share/try out.

    Others have brought things to demo like fly tying, arrow cresting, birch bark crafts, all sorts of things.

    Of course there is the food. Everyone is encouraged to bring something to share though that is certainly not a requirement. The kitchen is available to re-heat things. Chester Meats is also only 1/2 mile away on Main Street for goodies and we have some great restaurant in our little village, though most people eat the communal food-fest in the kitchen.

    Please peruse the previous event threads linked above, offer your opinions in the thread, tag others I might have missed.

    RSVP at the bottom of this post if you can make it!

    Sounds rude to say I am traveling but Friday is prom and the girls have parades that weekend. So I am all tied up that weekend

    No rudeness perceived J! Our are is one in which people can afford to go away to the lake house or beach house on any 3 day weekend, Pastors excluded, so I am used to people not being around for such weekends. We cannot plan any youth events at such times.

    Interested, and subscribing. The wife works the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend (and would require use of our car to get there). But interested and really enjoyed it last time!

    In addition to the fire pit, we will likely hav a propane grill available for cooking as well as long as we are outside.

    I thought this was the one I could actually make. Apparently I am never right. I won't be able to make it.

    Bumping this up with two days to go!

    I am off tomorrow and will be heading out to collect some nice green wood.

    For those who have not been here before, Chester Meats is a fantastic place for meats and is just 1/2 mile down Main St.

    As mentioned earlier we will have a gas grill set up and we can also use the kitchen to heat things up.

    Might also have the fire pit over in the church yard.

    See you all Saturday!

    @hdlv - I was just about to ship but then I realized I will see you at the meet tomorrow. I'll bring it for you.

    We're looking forward to this. Bump for any last minute interest.

    Just an FYI if anyone is going to Chester Meats before the meet for meat, be prepared for a line. It is a popular place, especially with a long weekend that has a tradition of cookouts.
