    Saturday, March 11th from 10-4.


    This comes out of a growing contingency of members here in Northern NJ, New York, PA, and especially Brooklyn.

    Here is a link to the report from the first carving meet: NNJ/NY/PA Carving Meet Event Report

    I pastor a church in Chester, NJ, and we have a large wooden floored Fellowship Center, with a nice fireplace and plenty of room for carving. The wood floor is great for sweeping

    So, bring your tools, there will be no formal instruction, but much informal playing around.

    I have four nice logs for chopping, and will make coffee and hot water for tea. Feel free to bring lunch, or there are several places to get lunch to bring back to the church, including an amazing Mexican restaurant and a fantastic sub shop.

    The address is: Community Presbyterian Church of Chester, 220 Main St, Chester, NJ, 07930

    Let's start at around 10am.

    Edit: feel free to bring any sorts of munchies you would like to share! We have three industrial refrigerators if things need to stay cool


    Use the new RSVP button at the bottom of the OP!


    Tagging a bunch of folks I know are interested: @bobc @Wolfcri @NJHeart2Heart @GreenFrog @hdlv @JV3 @Medic17 @alukban @Sweeneyguy @NVRDONE @adkwalker

    I still have quite a lot of that black birch that has had the ends sealed up with beeswax since harvesting. I'm sure it is still nice and green.

    The only stipulation is that anyone who puts something in has to get something, otherwise it is considered gambling.

    It could be kind of a fun grab bag sort of thing, everyone puts something in a paper lunch bag and then everyone gets to pick a different bag. We will figure it out.

    I'm on the "not so probable list now". I was just informed yesterday, by my wife, that we are hosting family for the Scranton St. Patty's Day parade. It's somewhat of a tradition in our house since my wife's family is the epitome of Irish-American families. Plus, my wife had to work that weekend for the past three years. There will be no reprieve. :)

    I was out at Camp Johnsonburg yesterday and took down a 30' tall Black Birch for carving wood and the twigs from the top for birch tea! This is just part of it.

    I might have to bail on this. I have a good excuse. I won a rifle in a raffle at my local club. I need to pick it up. I will hopefully see some of you at the camp out the following weekend.

    My BIL messed up the timing for this weekend because he needs my help for an annual thing that he left at the last minute. Let's leave it at that :(

    As with last time, there will be a few tables upon for trade blanket items, another for displaying and keeping your carving tools, a first aid table, then food in the beautiful kitchen.

    i can give him a ride to Chester, but not back...i'm staying over at my daughters in Califon.....he would have to take the bus to Willowbrook Mall in Wayne....I would pick you up at the NJ bus kiosk...which he can get from port authority and is direct (thats what i take going into NYC)....getting back home, he can take a train (or a bus) from Dover, where Dawn lives (and if she could give him a ride)....that would take him to Newark Penn station and there transfer to another train to penn station in nyc......

    Just saw this and would love to come. We're down to one car for the foreseeable future so my ability to attend these meetups will be severely diminished.

    I will think of you all while I teach myself to tie flies tomorrow.
