I plan to be there, arriving Thursday evening. I have one Elmers engine to bring, and I think I am going to bring the CNC lathe I built last year at the workshop and see if I can find it a new home. I already had one CNC lathe, that seems to be enough. I also have a KX1 mill that I really dont need, but not sure I want to haul them both.

I will probably split my time between the New England group and the Mach software area, but I certainly want to say hello to all the MEM guys. Is there a dinner plan?

Dinner? Good idea , Ron.
Last year we went to The Gin Mill.
I'll call today to see if they'll take reservations. If so, I'll reserve for 10.

I will be there to set up Friday morning early. My model is 3 ft tall and heavy. I would like a spot at the end of a table so the model can sit on the floor.  I look forward to meeting other MEM members.

I was there last year and it seemed there were no plans for dinner, at least not at the end of the show. Perhaps it was set up for later in the evening for those staying nearby. I'll be driving up and back from Baltimore so I could join you around 6:00 but not if it will be much later. See you next week!  :cheers:

The tables are pretty sturdy, and 3' isn't outrageous.  My Joy engine weighs 120 lbs.  Sitting on the floor might pose a traffic problem.

If you'll be there early on Fri, shouldn't be a problem. As KVOM said, models on the floor are a potential tripping hazard. It should be fine on a table. I'll drop a reservation sheet on our row for you.

Last year we kind of decided on dinner at the motel.
Given that the show closes for the day at around 4 on Saturday, 6pm is pretty unlikely as folks have to drive back to wherever they're staying, shower, change, etc.   More like 7 with a half hour wait for a table.
Best,
Stan

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you at the show.  I'll be at the show Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.  My wife and I usually do some antique shopping when we are in that area.

Should be able to make it Saturday for the day. Planning to bring the Troshop(sp) Atkinson I finished this summer. Looking forward to seeing some of you. Paul

Weather is looking worse, with snow predicted for Saturday.

I know and I'm just putting the finishing touches on the display for the "Tinys". 

40% chance of snow for Langhorne and 20% for home.  Given that I have to drive three hours each way Saturday; the weather really effects if I can make it or not.  Looks like getting there wouldn't be a problem.  It's the ride home into the mountains at night that can be pure hell in the snow.  We'll just see what happens; hopefully the forecast changes.

1 or 2". Shouldn't be an issue.

I've packed up the engines and I'm off to CF.
I generally go on Thursday to reserve table space for MEM and to look at the early auction arrivals. (Not that I have any room for another machine)
Of course I'll do daily pix postings.
Stay tuned
Best,
Stan
