December 4 - Madison. WI Gathering

#1

Post by hammer_off »

I talked with Pat and she wants to have a December gathering in the garage again this year. Wisconsin area collectors will be gathering at the Engbring’s garage at 4809 Rothman Place in Monona, Wisconsin on Saturday, December 4. Bring items to display, sell, or trade and share food and fellowship by the wood burner. You don’t have to be an ICCC member or even a Wisconsin resident to attend. Heck, if we will let people from Illinois participate, a Golden Gopher, a Wolverine, or even a Hawkeye could make it through the door. Please bring a dish to pass. Plan to arrive after 9:00 AM and stay until after the evening light up.

Note: At this time Dane County has a mask mandate in place for all indoor activities. It may still be in place at the time of the gathering. It is Pat's intent to follow whatever the rules are at the time of the gathering.

Please let me know if you will be attending by posting here or sending me a PM. It is important so we can set up the garage to accommodate. Tell me if you need a table, half table, or if you are buying, not selling.

Thanks,

I will plan to be there! I don’t plan to bring anything to sell at this point. I could probably use half a table, or less for display though. Thanks to you and Pat for putting this together. I enjoy the December gatherings, and It’s a long wait till Spring.

Awesome. Please put George and I down for a table.

And please. If heat kills the virus we all know that garage is the equivalent of a doomsday bunker!!

See you all then.
It'll buff out.

David - It is likely that the setup will be the day before. The Engbring family will set up the canvas garage extension on Friday and they will bring over the tables. Once that is done, it is just a matter of scooting the tables to where we want them.

Madison/Dane County Public Health extended the mask mandate for all indoor activities until January 3. I talked with Pat and she will expect everyone that attends to wear a mask while inside.

Dang Steve I have always been on the fence driving to Madison. With your governor’s mandate, me being fully vaccinated as well as having the booster. There is no way that I would wear a mask for an indoor gathering.
I hope you guys have a great time as usual!

Thanks to Pat and Steve for putting together another December gathering. Had a great time hanging out and talking lanterns with some fine folks. Enjoyed looking at what everyone brought and added some nice pieces to my collection.

Thanks very much for posting the pictures.
It all looks very familiar to me and it seems nothing has changed since Jerry's passing.
Good to know Pat (and everyone else) is doing fine. :P

Nice to see everyone and sweat together in the garage. Steve, thanks for keeping it at smoldering level and for opening the garage door to my annex for a while. See you all in April in Harrisville!
