The meeting at the Schwarting's summer home at Sackett's Bay was a good social experience, a great learning time for all of us, and just a nice time.
Thank you Suzanne and Brad for opening your home for this event. It was FUN!
I hope all of you get the opportunity to go to at least one of the chapter meets held every year in many parts of the country.
We had a great time! We had a chance to get together with friends (old & new). There were some that weren't able to join us this time and they were missed. Suzanne & Brad did a great job. Plenty of food! There was a lot of nice iron to see, swap, buy or sell. Elena did a very nice presentation, too. The weather was gorgeous with a nice breeze coming off Lake Ontario. We allowed extra time so we had the chance to explore Sackets Harbor, visit historical spots, museums, an antique shop and take a nice walk around town and along the water. We stopped in at Sackets Harbor Brewing Company (NY state's oldest continuing microbrewery) a former railroad station building located right on Lake Ontario. So often we arrive late Friday afternoon (the day of the chapter meet) and head home immediately after the Saturday events that we seldom take the time to visit the area. We made the time this time (as did a few others). It was such an enjoyable weekend!
and I like your new cup, Audrey.
It's hard to find a mug with a cast iron theme so sometimes you just have to design your own.
Brad and Suzanne's home is a former school house. (Notice the blackboard?). If these walls could talk....
