My First Gathering

#1

Post by holliswood »

My son and I are so glad we attended our first gathering this past weekend!! We enjoyed meeting all of you who attended the SECC gathering. We’re definitely looking forward to attending more of these events over the upcoming years!

For those of you who are new to the hobby and to this forum, it’s definitely worth your while to attend these gatherings! Lots of nice and kind people everywhere and it really is about the friendships made than the gpa.

Here’s some pictures of the scenery and our haul from this past weekend. I apologize for not taking pictures of other people as I assume not everyone likes their picture being taken. I’m also sure my pictures won’t upload in the correct order but here they are.

Gatherings are the best! Nothing beats time with great people who are also friends.

That’s the truth!! I’m hoping to attend some gatherings in states I’ve never been to so that should keep me busy for a few years lol!

Cool bunch of stuff you hauled home! Looks like you'll be busy for a while fettling all of those new toys!

What's the lowest you'll take for this lantern?                                                

          Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

( Thanks for that one Uncle Sidney!) :D

And oh... I don't flip GPA's... I have gifted several though. :D

Glad you were able to get to a gathering, Fred. I am still waiting to get the opportunity to attend my first gathering. It must be a blast to walk around looking at all the goodies and meet the folks that make this hobby so fun.

Hopefully you can eventually get to a gathering soon! It was a awesome time and chatting with everyone was definitely the best part. Seeing what everyone brought to display was extra cool. Lots of GPA’s I’d never seen before 👍🏻

Glad you made it. It was a great weekend for a gathering.I had a good time. I only came home with 1 lantern and 3 generators. I'll be attending one of the FB groups gathering in about 2 weeks in Gadsden Al after that I should be primed for the ICCC convention in June.
