    Default Who Is Coming To The Gathering?

    Who is coming to NERACON?
    The number of responses so far has been pretty disappointing.
    I've only had 5 people RSVP so far, and it isn't worth having the show for just that small number. I thought there would be a lot more guys saying they were coming by now.
    If the numbers aren't up by the weekend, I'm sorry, but I will just cancel the show and maybe we can try again sometime next spring or summer.

    I wish I could attend bit I'm a little to far away. These razor meets are great I just went to the north jersey one and learned a bunch, plus a chance to view dozens of razors how can you pass it up? Please guys if you live in the area try to make it, it would be a shame to lose the opportunity due to poor attendance.

    I've got to think about it. It's almost four hours from me but I'm interested in visiting. I don't want to RSVP if I'm not sure (I know you said if there's any chance but I'm a man of my word).

    I didn't see this announcement until just today. As a way to spark interest in area events maybe a search on who lives where by via the SRP member map and a PM to anyone within a radius. Just an idea. I know I'd be aware of a lot more meetings if I got a PM.

    There is no way that I am going to miss the opportunity to meet Alex and Howard and Robert and share some thoughts on honing, razors and shaving in general. This is a great opportunity for anybody interested in the subject withing driving distance, these guys are great at what they do, all of them. I have chatted with Alex many times and he has been very helpful and encouraging, same with Howard, which I contacted a couple of years ago about honing. I have not had the plasure to interact much with Robert but I am sure that he is as nice as the other guys. One thing Bob, please do not tell anybody about the door prices so we can split them among us.

    So............................ who else is coming????????????????

    Oh! It looks like I haven't actually sent my RSVP. Yes, I'll be there unless something catastrophic happens. If we have a small crowd, that's OK. I went to a small one in Michigan last summer and we all had a great time.

    Well I took your advice, Claytor, and I sent out 30 more PM's to guys in the New England area. I think that you may have been on the list also.
    Hopefully that will stir up some more interest over the next few days.
