    It was a very nice, relaxing day.
    Congratulations to Ben. I will post pics of the knife before sending it to Craig.

    Thanks to everyone who came to this year's ECG. The turnout was a bit light but it was nice to see some new forum members and non-forum friends and family.

    Burl Source is hitting his stride with some highly figured blocks of wood I've never heard of before. Butch, as usual, brought some great knives and liquid nitrogen he and Doug Seward used to make soft-serve ice cream. mingooch is quickly building up his hoard of 270 custom-handled gyuto's and Seth is still the Shig king. Chef Niloc arrived late and stayed late with his Beatty cleavers, knife belts and some of the amazing knives he's posted here.

    Food-wise, Jim made some excellent pulled pork. Doug's traditional linzer tort was excellent, as were mingooch's wings.

    Theory arrived close to 7:00, when everyone was either gone or packing up. He and Niloc hung out, ate pulled pork sandwiches and yammered on about knives and the resto biz until about 9:30. I think my son, Ben -who woke up at 2:00 p.m- sat with them, but I was done in after starting to set up at 8:00 a.m.

    My wife, Debi, was a great help and host, especially considering she couldn't care less about knives. I'm a lucky guy.

    mingooch/Chris said he'd be hosting it next year at Sandy Hook NJ. I'll see you all there.

    Yeah, the legend continues. Supposedly soon to be made into a major motion picture, with RT played by Johnny Depp and Butch by Vin Diesel. (Not sure who will be cast as Colin.)

    Seriously, thanks to everyone else who did so much to make me (and others) feel so welcome, and providing food, etc., e.g. (in no particular order), Doug, Jim, Debbie, Chris.

    looking at his old avatar I'd say Daniel Day-Lewis would be the obvious choice

    He threatened to etch dragons and flames into it at work. Though I think (at least hope) he was just trying to stir the pot...

    Once again I've been mistaken for Mark. I even wore my Dream Burls T-shirt. I'm starting to get a complex. Maybe Mark and I need to post our pictures side by side so people can tell the difference. No worries Mano, I had a great time anyway.

    Myron, I'm so sorry. The wood you brought was the stuff of dreams.
