I didn't vaporize, Randy! :)
I had several very interesting personal events happen, and suffice it to say I have been less involved... I'm back, and once my house is finished being built (closing is set for Sept 24th, whoohoo!) I should be back, and as involved as evert
North Branch, MN (Soon to be Rock Creek, MN)

Glad to hear you are doing well. Is the work on the Triumph progressing?
Please let us know date as soon as possible. Jan. is busy season at work and I really want to make this years meet in the Cities.

I found this site a few weeks ago and would be interested in attending a metalmeet. Please let me know what the dates will be so I can make sure they are clear.
This is the most informative site with people willing to help that I have found on the net. Thanks for all the good information. :P

There two types of MetalMeets, the large once a year International one and the Regional Meets.
Here is the information on the large International MetalMeet04.
We're shooting for 250 attendees this year. This is the largest group of sheetmetal shapers ever assembled. :D
The regional meets happen at different times of the year in different locations. You just have to follow along to see who volunteers to open their shop to sponsor a Regional Meet.

Thanks for the info. I don't think I will be able to make the metalmeet in IL this year.
I am a beginner at welding and bending metal. I will have some questions and will post a picture as soon as I get them developed.

I too am interested in more info
I am in Wisconsin and hope to be able to attend but need info to be able to plan. I am now teaching shop classes at a local Catholic High School part time so need to get time off, maybe we can get a field trip for the kids for a day. That would be an awesome experience for them. How many days is this held?

I'm a newby to all this metal working stuff, but I'd love to make the winter meet. Anyone know the date yet? Also how much does it cost? being as I'm a broke college student that would probably be the biggest determening factor, so the further ahead of time I can get an idea of the date and cost the better chance I have...

If the timing works out, (If I am not in some desert in the mideast at that time), I would like to attend the meet also. I will keep watching for the dates to be posted.

Has a date been set ? I'm in Iowa and would like to try and attend. Last minute plans don't alwats work for me.

All interested Upper Midwest Metalmeet Members.
We will be having a regional metalmeet in this area (Minneapolis) in the mid weekend of every odd numbered month. I am looking for a spot for the January meet now. I will announce a date and Place by Dec 1st.
The dates below are the proposed meet dates for 2005. We will try hard to not alter dates. People need to plan IMPORTANT events.
FEB Too COLD for any activity
APR Taxes $$$$$
June Back to the Fiofties Meet St Paul Fairgrounds
AUG Too HOT for any work Everyone is on vacation
OCT Maybe a special MASK Meet????
DEC HOLIDAYS Family stuff Decorate the Ewheel

Thats pretty sneaky Richard, scheduling the metalmeets on the odd months.
That ought to bring in all those Guild of Metalsmiths folks who need a metal fix and are going into withdrawal 'cause they only meet on even months.
If we send the schedule to their monthly newsletter we may even drag some luddites into the mix.:lol:
