    Well I guess I will take namonllor's lead and see if there is any intrest in a get togather of others in surounding My areas!?
    I live in Richlands Va. 1/2 way betwine Bluefield WVa and Bristol Tn. I know of a couple of other modelers in the Bristol area but havent found any others nearby.
    So if anyone out thare lives in driveing distance and is intersted in a get togather please speek up! I would offer My shop for a meeting place but it is so small I barely have room to turnaround in it . lol So we would allso need someone to volinteere a place to meet.
    Well hopefully I will find that there are others in the area that would like to get togather !

    Hey John
    I sort of know where Fancy Gap is. I know there must be more of us in this area, Its a big area! lol Hopefully We can find more people intersted and plan a get togather some time soon! I know Shorty L. lives in the tricitys area but I havent herd from Him in a while, And Bruce Harr was in Kingsport but I havent herd from Him in several years and His phone # dont work now so I have no idea where He is now. Those 2 are the only others I have met in the area. But like I said there has to be more of Us!
    Lets keep trying to get a group togather and see what happens!
    Later

    Hey Mike
    Thanks for the reply! That makes 3 of us now! Hopefully we will find a couple more!
    It will be a while before I am able to travel verry far, I had surgery on My foot in june and it got infected 3 1/2 weeks later and is healling verry slow due to Me being diabetic. But hopefully by the time I can drive better we will have found a few more guys and a place to meet at!
    Thanks again!

    Hi Guys
    Ok it looks like Were going to have severial for a get togather! Now We need to find a place to have it! Any volinteeres? And decide on when! I would like it to be in mid to late October since Im not going to be able to drive far till then! I was back at the Dr's monday and they put a cast on My foot to controll the swelling and hopefully speed the heeling process, but they said I could be a the cast for up to 8 weeks! and it ant easy driveing with your right foot in a cast! LOL Anyhow lets hear from you other guys on this! When and where would be good for You?

    Hey guys, good luck with the group. I'll tell you, we had a great time down here in the sunshine state.
    Something a fellow builder suggested to me was to contact any of the Engineering schools and Universities in the area, and let them know. Also try ASME and The Association of Professional Model Makers (don't forget the other Yahoo groups. Should this get off the ground, you could also contact Model Engine Builder, as they offered to list our group in their magazine for free....can't beat that.
    Good luck and have a great meet.

    Withville would be fine with Me! From looking at the other posts that would be a centrial location. So anyone live in the Withville area or know of a place nearby where We could meet?
    Lets hear from some of you other guys what do you think?
