The section that has been closed for about two years is open in theory, I don't drive it so I have no idea. There has been problems that have resulted in I-75 north bound being closed off and on above 8 mile road due to a cascading number of pot holes and canyons. Here is the link for the roads in Michigan after it opens just click on the cone icon.

That will only be a problem for people coming from the north.

Who from MEM is going, and do we have table(s) reserved?  I am planning to bring 3 fairly large pieces:
- Joy Engine
- Muncaster Grasshopper
- Colibri Hummingbird

and Coventry if I have room.

Kirk,
I missed this when it was first posted, was surprised nobody posted about it so I looked for it. I am planning to be there and could use most of a table. We are getting into town Thursday and leaving on Monday.

Set up starts this week for the show, see you this week end. Anybody coming check the MDOT web site for construction info as they are closing assorted sections over the weekends on I-94 and reduced lanes on I-765 both directions.

I will be there, as will 4 of my friends from the New England Model Engineering Society. As I seem to do every year I will again do my Seminar, "Adventures in Home Shop CNC" This year I will be talking about some interesting experiments with a very simple touch probe. I think I was told the seminar is on Saturday Morning. I think I am going to bring my traction engine this year, haven't done that for several years. The damn crate seems to get heavier every time I try to move it.

Ron, PT, I will be unable to make the show this year, but I would be interested in your talk about CNC topics in probing. Perhaps the talk could be video recorded and DVD distributed by the club for a donation to the club. Just a thought.

Maury, hope al is well with you and other commitments is the reason you will miss this year. I thgink that would be strictly up to Ron about his lecture, last time NAMES tried to do something with a DVD type of deal it was a bust and more work and time than it brought in.

It would be way to much hassle to video record a talk, and the resulting video wold be dull and useless.

When I get back I will post some info here on what Ive done with probing. I think its going to work very well.
