When/Where? I guess, though, if I have to ask, I'm probably not going... =]

Hi Mike,

My wife and I will be going again this year. A pass would be great! Big Grin

Please let me know if you need any info.

Thanks and I will see you there! Happy

Rob

I didn't know she was an Otter Princess when I married her! Although, her small, laughing eyes and love of shellfish should have betrayed her true nature to me.

Mike,

If you are referring to the Atlanta Blade Show, I do have a request of another kind if possible. I am seriously looking at buying a Bayeux. I don't know what stock ya'll are planing to bring down, but I would really love to be able to handle one in person before I commit the funds. I don't know if it's possible, but it would be awsome to get my hands on one before I spent the cash. Either way, I look forward to seeing you guys.
Jonathan.

Atlanta, GA June 16th - 18th. It is always a great time if you can make it.

2 passes on the way down to you Rob.

No problem. We have one down there we are planning on taking. Big Grin The grip isn't wrapped yet - we were thinking on light brown - but do you have a color you would like to see?

Also do you need a VIP pass at all?

I'll be there of course. This time though I'm staying far away from Albion's table so I won't be tempted again...






Yeah right!

See you guys there.

Russ,

Will you be bringing any examples of your work? I would be very interested in seeing some of your scabbards firsthand.

Hey David,

The answer is... I don't know... Happy For a few reasons... First at that point I have no idea what I might actually have on hand. Hopefully everything I've got currently will be done and shipped by then and I don't know what projects I'll have to be worked on or what state they will be in at that point.

Second I'm not renting a table and its sort of bad form to be hauling your own stuff around at the show when you didn't pony up the money for the fees you know?

Third a couple of years ago I brought some stuff from Castlekeep that I was hoping Mr. Evans could take a peek at and it caused a small group to gather in front of Mr. Evan's table just to look at it and that sort of thing. It got to be sort of a problem with people blocking Mr. Evans table and the tables next to his. Both Mr. Evans and his wife have been incredibly nice to me over the years and I was absolutely mortified to be causing a problem at their table. I'm not saying there would be a crowd gathering to see my scabbards or anything Blush just that I don't want to be in anyone's way. If I happen to have something done I may bring it and leave it in the car so if someone really wants to see it we can wander out there and have a quick look how about that?

Understood. I didn't know if you had a table at the show or not, and I certainly wouldn't want to see you hauled away by the convention authorities. Eek!

That said, I wouldn't mind running to the car to see anything that you may happen to have with you. I have a Count on the way from Albion that will be needing a scabbard soon so I was planning to contact you in the next few months anyway. In any event it would be nice to meet you and maybe work out a deal for a scabbard commission or two. I'll be the guy being dragged away from the Albion booth by his wife. Big Grin

I may be able to get up to the show this year. If so, I look forward to being able to meet as many of you gents and ladies as possible. I have learned and am learning a great deal from those of you on this site and am very grateful to you all. I would be nice to be able to put some faces to names.
