Pasadena - Gamble House Tour / Get together
 
Hi all,

Well, we took the polls and it appears that our first get together will be the Gamble House in Pasadena. The most popular date appears to be Saturday, November the 15th. So folks, please pm me if you can make it. I need to know the approximate size of the group so that I can see what we can do to set up a tour. The sooner the better..........

I've got a set of friends flying down from the Bay Area, so I know we'll be at least four.

Mike

Mike, my wife and I are in.

We're looking forward to it. I hope Chris and Annette Mercado can make it, Chris expressed interest, and I'd love to meet them.

And of course Ned and his wife better show up, or we'll have to drive over and get them. :)

Ned and wife are in. Haven't heard back from Chris and Annette yet, but they told me earlier to just pick a date. Hope the 15th works for them.

Important info!!

Just got off the phone with the very lovely lady from the Gamble House. The San Diego Fine Woodworking Assoc has scheduled their massive tours that morning (the 15th). We cannot sign up as a group tour that day, so here's how it works.

The only tickets that can be purchased in advance are for the 2:00 pm tour. There are 11 left. Otherwise tours (which are 1 hour in length) start at noon and then every twenty minutes unitl the last tour at 3:00 pm. Tickets go on sale when the Bookstore opens at 10:00 am.

I suggest that we all show up at the Bookstore at 10:00 am, buy our tickets and then we'll have an opportunity to check out the grounds or the wonderful Bookstore. We can decide to go have lunch and then come back for the tour. Sound okay?

Mike

OK by me, but...

Can the tickets be bought before Saturday? Sounds like it. What're the odds they'll be gone when we show up Saturday at 10?
