Twelve days out and you're worrying about what you'll be doing?
I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing today.

Hey, Deb ~ Can't wait to meet your son Pat! Whooo Hooo....

ZaZa and Marco send big kitty hugs to your kitty. Hope that surgery goes smoothly. I just had to take Marco into emergency care a couple of weeks ago as he was bitten by a friends 100 pound dog.... who knew she liked kitties for appetizers. The good news is that he is fully recovered

We would love to help and join you thursday evening but, unfortunately, we don't get in until friday afternoon.... big pout.... but you can count on us to help in any way that we can.

Counting the days.... soon to be hours...

11 days. Some things are ready, not enough. Never enough. Wish I had more free time to get done. Don't care, I'm coming anyway.

Who all are going to the Flame Off?

I think I'm going to stay in Portland the night of Aug 27.
Can you locals tell me a cheap but clean hotel to stay at?

Got my tools and clothes packed, and still have an empty suitcase to bring stuff home. Life is good.

It's almost midnight here, so I'm gonna beat Joan to it: 9 more days!

I'm leaving Seattle a week from tomorrow (with a friend who'll be a Glass Stock first-timer) and spending the night in Portland -- found a hotel downtown with a complementary wine tasting every evening. Sweet! Gonna pick up Kris on Tues. morning and hit Bullseye and maybe Glass Alchemy before heading to Eugene. Woot!

Deb,

Looks like you've ordered in some wonderful weather for us--highs in the 70's and lows in the 50's. It will be a welcome relief from these 100 freakin degree dog days of summer.

You are the best!
Kris



ETA: 8 days!!!!!

Joan, you are just the cutest! I am gonna give you 2 big hugs!

Patty, Bernie and I will be there...there is a little hotel named the Value Inn about a mile or so from the venue...pretty cheap.

Kris, ahhh, Bullseye! Felicia knew your motives....I love Bullseye!

Felicia, you are so together, what a perfect tour guide you are!
Wine tasting, wow, that is cool! If you find a great red (Pinot Noir is my fav) write the name down!

Les, thanks SO much for the kitty hugs, I will give them to Kate.
100 lb dog bite...ow...poor kitty! Glad he is ok now! Pat is a great kid, can't wait to see him light up watching all those people fire up!

BIG hugs! days...wooohoooo!

Why yes, Kris, ordered it up a couple days ago, lol! My daughter and her hubby came for the weekend, it was fantastic! We walked Ona beach yesterday with the fog burning off and the sun blaring, it was incredible!

Today looks great too and Bernie got here nlate last night so we are gearing up to fill teacher boxes after I get an order done today.

Ahhhh, it will be nice and cool here but not sure how hot in the valley (Eugene).....bring lots of cool clothes!

OH, make sure you all try and bring cotton clothes for the hot shop!

yippy skippy (as my grandaughter says daily!)

Thanks, Deb, but I'm actually looking for a hotel in Portland for Friday night.

Anyone have a suggestion?

There is a holiday inn and a La quinta not far from the airport but not right next to it so not as spendy you might check these out Patti. I wish I had a extra room still I would let you stay here. I am right across the bridge from the airport

The weather has been up and down this summer so expect anything, it could even rain. (it rained last week).

Patty I just called you, but where do you want to stay in Portland? Downtown? SE? Which side of the Willamette?

I recently stayed for a night right by the airport that was nice and not expensive at all (even had a kitchenette) but I wouldn't stay by the airport unless I had to catch an early flight.

I researched hotels downtown and by the airport. Airport is definitely a far less expensive option.

Jeri and Polly, word is right! Sometime you ladies have to make it to the Flame Off!

Sorry Patty, I thought you meant Eugene. Just don't stay at the Red Lion (I think that is the name) you get to listen to trains ALL night long!

Also, Sue sent out a Slent Auction notice, this is optional and is not your 2 sponsor items. The sponsor donations are divided amoung the 24 sponsors for their showcases.

The silent auction helps me keep tools in great shape, replace some if necessary and basically keep the event going.

The "Man Auctions" go to helping repay what I covered in staff food this year ($1,300), we have 24 instructors and with Tech team we have 30 "staff". The "guys" get to keep half of the proceeds too for workin' it!

Ok, off to get torching and then working on teachers boxes today, thank goodness friends are already here to help!

Hugs and a woooohooo, deb

I'm staying a night at the Kennedy School... It is an old school converted into a hotel. Thought it would be fun. It is near the airport... not right at it.
