    Default Interest in a Seattle area GT?

    Is there any interest in a get together in the Seattle area (actually south east of Seattle probably) for a show and tell and possible swap meet? I don't have a date in mind other than possibly sometime in September on a Saturday afternoon evening.

    I am trying to make it so it doesn't step on the Vancouver GT.

    We had a pretty good turnout in May. I have had a number of people ask if we were going to have another at the same place (the party barn in Renton).

    There seems to be an interest in holding another one. I am kind of leaning toward just past mid-September.

    Since I have a 2 hour drive, a saturday works best for me. However I will be there this weekend, but it's our anniversary getaway, so don't think Mrs Mini would be appreciative of me leaving her.

    How would Saturday the 18th of September work for people? I can get the party barn that day/evening.

    If you know people that might be interested please check with them on whether that date will be good. I don't know if Mike is able to come at this point.

    I know that I have a number of friends and family that are now interested in coming to see and buy some of these cool flashlights. Show someone a good light and they want one.

    Great idea! September 18th is fine with me, I probably won't be able to make it until around 7 though.

    Okay, sounds like the 18th will work with more than just me

    Like before I will go start setting up tables and such about 4 or 5, but i don't really expect people to show up until 6 or 7.

    I called Mike at PTS, but haven't heard back from him to see if he will be able to come.

    So time to spread the word!

    I started a Google Group so that people don't get left out of these if they miss the thread. If someone wants to be invited via email in the future, check out http://groups.google.com/group/pnw-flashaholics

    I've made it invite-only, with the ability to request membership. I know how messy things can get, so better to deal with a little inconvenience at first to keep the spamming down.

    I missed the last one due to not hearing about it until afterwards.

    Can probably make the 18th, though. Got to work the Huskies game, but it should be over with before it gets dark.

    I am sure we will be there until well after the Husky game.

    Has anyone heard from Mike to see if he will be coming?

    We can setup to have a potluck again. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and such worked pretty good last time.

    The pot-luck idea sounds good. I never really know what to bring though, and it always seems like there's more than everyone can eat. Perhaps people should post what they plan on contributing.

    I tried calling Mike at work, but nobody answered, probably out fishing...

    I would like to attend, as I couldn't make the last one. I have plenty of lights to show and sell and I love to grill.
    Thanks for arranging another one!!

    I think the hamburgers and hot dogs were a hit. I can work with one of the other participants to get the fixings for hamburgers and hot dogs and then we can coordinate with others for chips, sodas, and salads and cookies.

    I will call some friends and let them know it is on

    Show and Tell. Sometimes it is just nice for someone to get to touch a light that they are interested in.

    Swap meet. Just know that there may be people that want to trade or buy.

    So spread the word

    Well maybe I can just bring some cash to help with food

    Dan and Sarah know about it, they're not sure if they can make it though.

    I'll see if I can contact a couple others that have been to our get-togethers.

    Alright, I spammed a few people who've been to past events. We'll see what happens. It's a great location, hopefully we can continue to increase the turnout!

    It looks like I'll be in southern Oregon on that weekend. I'll have to sit this one out.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the notice. Put me down as a "maybe" for the event.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    I still have the option of coming up with a different date if it works better for more people. I am pretty open on the dates.

    I still have this on for this Saturday.

    Please let everyone know. I haven't heard from Mike. I think he is at the gun show in Monroe (about an hour north of here) this weekend. Does anyone know for sure?

    I have friends that are looking forward to coming for the show and tell and I did tell them that there may also be a swap meet.

    I can't believe I almost missed this!
    Got back from the Black Rock Desert last week and......well, I can re-deploy the Death Ray if it's welcome to shine?
    Works just dandy in ALL THIS RAIN!!!!!!!
    Have modest flashlight collection as well. I've missed the last two GT's at the barn in Maple Valley. It would be great to connect with local CPFer's

    Just three questions:
    1) 20245 SE 192nd St. Renton 98058 still the place?
    2) Beer/wine permitted? Enjoyed?
    3) Permission to access 240V power, otherwise running on batteries will be fine.

    I was hoping to hear back about whats a go/no go on details at the barn.
    Since I caught this kinda late, and I catch a ferry to get to Seattle, I will connect with the Google hook-up for a future GT.

    The Death Ray will always perform and I can show up with some good grub & beverage always. Hope to catch the next one.

    Have some serious fun over dere!!!
