Bowyers Gathering Tomorrow and Again on Aug. 1, 2010

Tomorrow is our monthly bowmaking get together in Pasadena.  I'm a little worried that it will be too hot to have a good time. But we are taking our shade canopy. There are shade trees in abundance there, but I can't assume I'll get a good spot under one of them. Bowyers are sprawlers, and by the time they lay out their blankets with wood, parts, knapping supplies, tools, ice chests, chairs, bow benches, tillering trees and other supplies, you'd be amazed how quickly the open spaces disappear.

Then on Aug. 1, 2010, I'm hosting an all new bowmaking gathering at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley, CA.  I hope by then the weather isn't as gruesome.

I'm trying to start a craft group called S.C.A.M.P.S. so at the gathering I'm also welcoming knitters, crocheters, quilters, artists, and so on. If anyone thinks they want to go, let me know so I can provide more exact details.

Hopefully I'll get to bed early tonight, so we can leave very early before it gets hotter than hades out. Once the heat hits, I hope to be sitting in the shade with a cool drink in my hand, not lugging wood from the truck over the bridge to the meeting spot.
