Default Redneck Roundup for 2017

This is a confirmation for the holding of the upcoming Redneck Roundup #4, being held on March 30th thru April 1st, 2017 in Rock Hill, S.C.We have a number of extremely talented folks that look like they are going to be in attendance and I am excited about that. My shop is rather small compared to Dan's and Kerry's, so I would ask that those of you that want to bring projects, bring a smaller one until I figure out how my shop spacing is going to adapt to the attendance. I have added some more tables, lights and a hot water heater. I DO encourage bringing a small project as there will be plenty of advice and material available.

My shop is a one-man shop, but I have a pretty good assortment of equipment, so at this point I am NOT requesting additional large machines to be brought. For yourselves, perhaps your two most used hammers and dollies, air tools, maybe an air hose. I would advise a pen and notebook as well. Your own portable work bench would help, and to bring your own chair(s) would be a REAL good idea.

I would expect that if you are going to either work or watch that you bring your own gloves, safety glasses, ear protection and welding helmets. I have a few extras, but not enough for everyone.

We will be having a tool exchange. To participate you need to HAND MAKE a small metal shaping related tool with a value of about $25 - $35 dollars. On Saturday afternoon those items will be put on display and a ticket provided to each of the participants and as their ticket is drawn from a hat they will be given a choice of what is on the table. I think this is a GREAT idea (not mine) and would encourage your participation.

We will also have a small swap meet area set aside in the event you might have a small tool or shaping item that you have for sale. The swap meet items should be light enough to be hand help and sit on a table .The folks in attendance either are, or will be your friends, so price accordingly.

I have some allergy issues, so the shop is a smoke free environment, but smoking outside will not be a problem. My wife hates cigarette butts on the ground, so I will have 'butt' cans strategically located.

Most of my shop is air conditioned and has an inside bathroom (recently added hot water for gas weld aluminum cleaning) Saturday lunch will be a catered barbecue meal, and I am optimistic that the best fried chicken you have ever had will be provided on Friday or Saturday.

We have received very generous offers donations for door prizes again this year. If you would care to contribute any door prizes contact me so that i might spread out how they are distributed. Last year some folks got some VERY nice items, for which I am most appreciative.

As I noted above, my shop is small and it has become apparent that it gets crowded quite quickly, so I have contacted those past attendees and set a 'limit' at about 40 folks, and that's pushing it a little bit. I have included the list of confirmed attendees and have room for perhaps 3-4 more. If you are on the list and determine that you cannot attend this year, please advise me so that I can make room for another. I apologize for this limit, but past experience has shown it to be necessary.

This year there will be number of wooden bucks from Jim Hery's Bugatti project that will be made available for use.

Kerry, I know I was a little late providing the date, and your previous commitment is understandable, but you will be sorely missed my friend!

I'd like to attend too.

Let me know if there is still room.

I am a complete novice if that is okay!

Thanks

David

Gentlemen, I have reached the sought after attendance figure, and I am surprised by the interest!
If you feel sure that you can attend at the listed date, please PM me, and I will add your name to a waiting list.
I appreciate all the interest.
