View Full Version : 2012 Godspeed Metalshaping Event?
11-06-2011, 08:28 AM
I'm throwing some feelers out for a spring meet to;
1, see who might be interested,
2, to have something do in the spring..
This is what I was thinking... $20 bucks for the weekend.
Show up on Friday, work Saturday, wrap up Sunday. I've been working to get two meals for that price (the church has offered one meal) I have plenty of ground for camping, I can get scotty potty's... Ihave a small shop but I do have a bigger morton building, and have a large canopy tent. It'll probably be a RSVP kinda thing..
Sometime in the second or third way in May..

Ron where would be the closest place to fly into ??:mrgreen:
Of course I would be interested!
11-06-2011, 09:29 AM
Big or little plane???? LOL
You can fly into St Louis and get a puddle jumper over to Quincy regional airport, from there I can taxi you:o..
11-06-2011, 09:38 AM
You know after reading the Oblong thread...
:idea:What you think about trying to build another Belly Tanker body?
I can get the buck back from Johnny and have one built already to make patterns off of..
So you can SEE what you are making, it's a common goal, it's not overly hard to shape...

any other replies?
11-10-2011, 09:26 AM
Ron: Would you consider getting ahold of Randy & Doug & the possibility of having a meet in the spring in Oblong? Since it would probably be a smaller & shorter event only one building would need opened & there is a good chance some of the folks that do the meals etc would be happy to participate. Just a thought.

11-11-2011, 07:37 AM
Sounds good! not too hot, not to cold! perfect time! Should we put it on the calendar? tt;)
11-11-2011, 09:31 PM
Ron my friend can you kind of firm up a date one this? Trying to get 2 weekends in a row off can be kind of tuff for me.
You do it and I will do my dead level best to make it my first priority!
I've seen the ocean and been to Calif, ain't never been to my friends place! :D
11-12-2011, 08:01 AM

We will celebrate your GRADUATION and the start of 2012!!:)
11-23-2011, 03:48 PM
Lookin' into it.. But already have a job lined up and they want me to start NOW:cry:....
So it's a funny delicate timing problem:?..
ON another note...
I think I have enough people interested in a meet, so the green light has been given:eek:
So I'll start cleaning the shop...
Ill post again a few months before the meet
And I'm working on getting T-shirts:cool:

Did you try the link? did you see the "ad" do you have snow on the mountains by you?:lol: Here in Illinois the tallest mountains are garbage mounds up by Chicago......:lol: tt;)
02-12-2012, 04:26 PM
LOL pointed out to me that I need to clearify...
Its can start Friday, with Saturday being the 'main day' and everybody is welcome to hang out or leave Sunday.
I'm going to try and have everthing setup before Friday, so those who show up can set up their 'camping' or help make some new FSP's or bench race.. I'll be home all day Friday
Saturday, we'll get into it. Help the new guys get started, the more expeirenced(spellcheck) guys can make a panel or two... Lunch/supper in there somewhere:lol:
Sunday is just a finish up/clean up/ whatever kinda day
Good idea ordering 19Drga before hand..
I will have the aluminium for the tanker body, so people can get a chance to work that as well:eek:

As a fellow host of metalshaping events it is incredibly hard to be a mind reader and somehow imagine how many will show up for our events .This may seem to some as a long way off to wory about such nonsence but believe me the sooner we can get a handle on who is comming to an event the better .
When was the last one in your area and how many more will there be if you make it too hard on the hosts of these events . These are a highlight in my year , but can be also a nightmare if all of a sudden several unexpected people show or worst case they plan for more and they dont show up .Just put yourself in there shoes and ask if you would like to plan the next one .
Get off your thumbs and start showing the respect Ron has earned for hosting and let him know sooner than latter .

05-12-2012, 07:25 PM
Yes he did.... Hats off to him..
Everyone thought is was a good idea to run home for mothers day and I got everything cleaned up... Maybe we can begin to plan to have one next year.
Thanks to everyone that showed up..:cool:
05-13-2012, 03:48 AM
Thank you for hosting the event. Lilly and I enjoyed meeting your family and seeing your projects. It takes a lot of effort to put on any type of event and you did a fine job of it. Everyone who attended helped to make it even better, thanks to all of you. Btw, it was only 170 miles from here to there and well worth the trip. Those who weren't there missed out on a very plesant day.
Lilly and I had to leave early in the afternoon, I was in the onset of sprint car fever. I would have enjoyed hearing those old fours fire up. LIlly got me out of there in just the nick of time (she hopes).
05-13-2012, 07:14 AM
Looks like you all had a good time :) :) :)
Is that a gun sight in front of the Bugly CEO? :D :D
05-13-2012, 08:29 AM
Yes it is a gun-sight..
I'd like to thank all that came and I enjoyed having you guys here. We couldn't have had a better day for it.
last of the pics:cry:
