    There's often several GTG or other gathering threads going on, and while the BSing, bragging, and not totally on topic stuff are fun to read, the actual date and place of the GTG get buried and are hard to find.

    I checked the calendar, but it doesn't seem to get used.

    My thought is to post a simple message with your GTG date and place in this thread, along with a link to the thread discussing it. Hope is that this thread won't become a discussion thread. There would then be an easy reference to look for places to go, find a nearby GTG for a newbie, etc.

    If this is a horrible idea, say so and I'll let it go.

    If this is a good idea, post your GTG info, and I'll burn some credits and sticky this thing.

    I'm not sure about this. We run ours in private without posting where in an open thread, then we run multiple GTG in one old thread if your not reading as the thread goes you get behind. :msp_biggrin: You got to be dedicated to the GTG and the Threads. :clap:

    Not that everyone has to do it our way, this is just how we do it.



    Edit: AtvGuns is host next goround if he wishes to trump me on this thats ok.

    Yes, but who has the room and the equipment? My place does not have enough flat ground-or parking.

    Probably be best to post all the GTGs on the calendar. I posted on it the other day just to test it out. Only problem is there's no way to edit the post. I suppose if you want to edit and update info or cancel, you could create another post on the same day and label it part2 etc.

    This summers' GTG will be more extensively planned and coordinated with a much more varied group of saws. I can guarantee that anybody that wants to run a two-man will have the opportunit
