View Full Version : Anyone got a full guild weekend report???

Pix and all? Was it so good that everyone is still recouperating?? Usually by now there has been at least one big report of the whole thing. Noticed no one on TKCL or Knife-list has posted either :( So everyone may be sworn to silence ;-). I will be here anxiously waitng for all the good details, and the pix of knives bought, sold and traded!

I made some comments of what I thought & got from the guild show & have had some of you look @ my msg but no one wants to talk to me. I had a great time & became a probationary member over the weekend. I went to my first meeting & am unsure what to think, but I will, if the Lord is willing, be there again next year. Met a lot of nice people, but still several that seem to be to prestigious to speak with little ole me, even though I'm not that little. There were the usual very nice people like Johnny Stout, Harvey Dean, Steve Schwarzer, Steve Dunn, Steve Jernagan, Weldon Whitley to name a few that are at in my opinion the top among many more. Anyway it was a good time. Dwayne Dushane

Hey Dwayne, we want to talk to you! :)

Also, we need to get you logged in so that you don't show up as an unregistered user. The "login" link is at top of the main page of the forums. If you have cookies enabled on your web browser, you will only have to login one time.

Glad you had a good time at the show. Those are some good folks you mentioned. Steve Dunn helped me a lot in the past and even let me come stay with him for a week and work in his shop a few years ago. I wish we could get him to hang his hat here at CKD and visit with us from time to time.

Man .... That Don Cowles is bad to the bone! :)

Hey Dwayne, you didn't mention meeting me. Of course, I'm not all that impressive. That's for sure ... :lol:

Hey everyone, Dwayne got a huge cheer from the gallery at the announcement of his acceptance into the KMG. I had a chance to look his work over personally and I'll tell you right now, it's dynamite!!!

Had a good time, I think. With only 4 hours of sleep all weekend, I'm actually not all that sure ... :)

& Alex, I'm sorry I forgot mentioning you, I did mention meeting you & Don Guild on one forum page, but no one answered; I enjoyed meeting & visiting with you. Your alright in my books, & thanks for the kind comments about my knives, I'm always trying to make them nicer & nicer. I always hope that everyone that buys one of my knives is always satisfied with their purchace. Talk at yall later, Dwayne

Dwayne, It is always a pleasure to talk to you. IMHO, you make some of the finest folders I' ve ever seen! Your file work is the best !!! In addition, you are a humble and very talented individual.
Having said that, I'll accept any folder in payment at the Austin show this weekend!! See ya Saturday. I'll be escorting THAT gentleman, Mr. Kern.

Deck, Thank you for the kind comments, But I was hoping I didn't have to pay for them; But I might do some traden, I might have a proposition for you this weekend; remind me about it & what Mark is doing. I hope your nice comments on my work don't mislead someone & they get to Austin & get disappointed :( I'm glad your coming & glad your bringing Bob, your right he is a gentleman in every since of the word & you are too! , I just wish I could spend more time with you rascals. Dwayne
