Magnolia Jamboree

Hello friends.
A few of us Lumberjocks got together for our yearly meeting.
We have named it the Magnolia Jamboree!

Jamboree - 3

I want to thank all the ones there were not there. You were dearly missed.
Food was provided by Lumberjocks.com.
Stumpynubs started this a long time ago with a tubafor contest.
Jamboree - 1
A great time was had for all.
and to top it off Charles Neil has invited us for the next round. WOW
Now there are two videos this post first is for my friends and the event we attended. Second is a demo of card scrappers I did there..

and my little demo… just for you Marty..

Thanks to all you know who you are way to many to list……….
I have to post something William wrote on lumberjocks.
Know this I consider William to be one of my closest friends…
“HEAR YE! HEAR YE!
Now dadnabbit, I have something to say!
.
That got everyone’s attention span?
.
For a month or two leading up to this event I was stressed out right up till the point the first guests arrived. I worried about handling this event financially, physically, mentally. I wanted to do it for my friends here, but there were times I wondered if it was worth the headache I was putting myself through.
Well here are my thought now.
After everything was said and done, I have just about crashed physically. I have no clue how I made it through without someone having to pick me up and carry me in the house.
All joking aside though, I would do it again in a New York minute.
This has been the biggest honor of my life to host this event, and that’s because of the great group of people who attended here. There are no words that I can say that will ever make any one of you understand how happy you have made me. I know because I’ve been sitting here all day trying to think of those words.
Thank you all for meeting me at my house.
Thank you all for making the trip so far as some of you did to be here.
Thank you for the sacrifices some of you made to be here instead of with your families, or at your son’s hockey game and so forth.
Thank you all for the help you provided to make this event happen, both mentally and financially.
Thank you all for being you.
Most of all, thank you all for being a friend.”
