Anyone here have interest in doing a West Coast Gathering? Clearly, i'm thinking LA would be a nice spot for one ;)

Anyways, if you're interested, maybe post here and we can see what things look like.

San Diego would be a better spot for this. TK and Steeley would probably agree.

As much as I'd love to get to one again, I'm stuck in central CA for this :(

I'd love to do a WCG. I had a lot of fun out there with some of you guys a few years back.

serious? you would come out to our side?

Seems like we have a little bit of interest stirring... lets give this a couple of days and go from there

Depends upon timing, but I might be able to make the trip.

I'd be down for sure! I won't be back home till mid February though...so let's not rush into this :)

Yea give it some time and plan it out. I am getting one restaurant in line and have to open another in late Feb-March so my time is going to be tied up completely in March and April surely, but May+ I can at least attempt! I could kill two birds with one stone on this one, go back to Cali & finally make a knife Get-to-gether. Only downside is I'd be back in my home state and Jon and I might start up a restaurant out there next to his knife shop ... so yea, lets think this one over Broida

...Only downside is I'd be back in my home state and Jon and I might start up a restaurant out there next to his knife shop ... How's that a bad thing? More than likely, I'd show up. :) I don't know about waiting until May... The beaches in socal can get pretty distracting toward the summer. We wouldn't want anyone having an accident.

Well I love the thought of it but the cost of it will probably (as it always does) change my opinion. :(

San Diego? Where would we eat? There's much better food in LA.

Naturally, I'm in.

I got a west coast road trip tentatively planned, this might solidify the dates. Nice.

I didn't say it was a bad thing! And it would depend on the kind of accident we're talking about :D

Dave stop thinking like that before I call Rachel to come spank you.

So its sort of begs the question: When is JKI opening a store on the east coast? OR us east coast people could rent a bus and take the scenic route?

That would make it easier for me. :biggrin:

Only a 9 1/2 hour flight.

If I were still on the West Coast, I'd be in for sure!

how does late march sound to you guys?

mr drinky
01-20-2012, 03:15 PM
Which week? There are 5 weekends in March.

Sorry to belabor a point, but by last weekend do you mean the 31st that straddles March and April or the 24th and 25th?

JBroida
01-20-2012, 03:24 PM
31st

really? would april be better?

Busiest week of the year between March 31 & April 8. The next 2 weekends I'm pretty sure I'm free...

TamanegiKin

You guys name the date, as long as It's after mid february I'm there.
Whichever date brings out most of the gang would be awesome.

unkajonet has the most intractable schedule known to man. Just set the date and I'll take some tranquilizers with me. He'll be there.:viking:

I'm in, most weekends are free for me, so no complaints here.

mr drinky
01-23-2012, 07:06 PM
31st

Won't work for me. Sorry.

JBroida
01-23-2012, 09:12 PM
ok... on to april? anyone have trouble with any weekends in april?

Kyle
01-23-2012, 09:25 PM
If it happens at the end of April there's a chance I'll be in the middle of relocating to Texas! Other than that I can't think of any issues...

I'm in!! The 31st-1st are crazy for me. End of month B.S. But whatever, set a date and I'll request it off!

Jon, would a WCG keep from attending the ECG?

JBroida
01-31-2012, 12:29 PM
nah

JBroida

Just an update on this... i thought i would have time to do something here, but its getting kind of crazy busy over here and we have out of town visitors on and off for this entire month, so i dont think i will be able to plan anything this month. Sorry guys.

However, if someone else wants to step up and put something together, that would be great.

It would be fun. Where at? Your shop. I would go.

It would be fun. Where at? Your shop. I would go.If there were more than ten people, I think the shop wouldn't be a great venue. Frankly, I think it's kinda late for a March date. I'm already planning going up the weekend of the Pasadena knife show.

Keep me updated. I missed the sharpening get together you guys had. It would be a good excuse to see some people and go to Jon's shop.

Bumpity bump, what say you left coasters?
Any interest in this? May or June? In n out burger parking lot WCG?
All kidding aside, I think this would be a cool shindig...let's make it happen.

JBroida
03-30-2012, 09:39 PM
The more i thought about it, i think my store is not the best venue... makes things too businessey. However, i'd be happy to participate elsewhere if we can make this happen.

I keep threatening to head down to Southern California for a one on one sharpening lesson with Jon. If this comes together, I'll try to make it and have my lesson before or after.

Deckhand
03-30-2012, 09:56 PM
Still interested... Whenever, wherever in so cal.

Northern California > Southern California

Obviously. But I'll still try to make it. ;)

I think you are referring to annual rainfall or fog:D

Looks like the big problem is someone has to step up and actually get a meeting place and a date. I think we might as well can this idea until someone decides to volunteer for point man duties. It makes the most sense to do it in LA or SF, maybe. Either way, the point person would have to be a local. At least, it would be easier that way...

A quaint public park (barring a permit I'm sure)? My mansion is off limits, sorry fellas.
What venues have played host to the ECG's?
