Eric there is a get together at Alex Gambinos this weekend in San Jose. There might be a chance to meet someone there who needs your skills.

Also you might call Ron Covell, He knows whats happening in your area and he is a great guy to talk to.

All tools are a hammer except the chisel.....That's a screwdriver.

A lot of guys come in on Friday night and help set up. I will be unloading early evening, and usually start chopping a top that night.

The class starts at 9 but people show up earlier for coffee and help Gene get his stuff on the tables.

Eric his # is 1-408-561-5744. I think it's $350.00 for the two days. Let him know so he knows how much food to get.

He usually has BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch and dinner Saturday night.

Gene Winfield will be doing his class Sat. and Sun. and he asked me to do a bead roller demo at some point.
