    i'm kinda on the fence.
    if i go i'll make a knife on sunday morning and skip the mayhem of trying to make one saturday. i really enjoy fumbling through the shaping process myself.
    that is the experience i go for.
    i don't think that would be possible with so many people.
    if i lived close it might be different.
    but after you factor in travel and lost work it ends up being a 1500 dollar knife.
    that needs to be an experience for me to justify.
    i can pick handle material on a barkie at KSF for a lot less.

    Last year, I believe I was one of only 4 or 5 that started off with a bar of steel. Nearly everyone started with a blank and it was still all assholes and elbows up to the very last minute. Just getting my bar of steel and handle material (Stag was on the list of available materials, I wanted stag, I saw the stag, I was willing to pay the premium for the stag, but was told no when it came time) took over an hour after I was told to leave my place in line and go to the end because I wasn't using a blank.

    After the meeting yesterday it's looking like a no go this year for me. The times I had over the past 6 years meeting new Devils and creating the knife I wanted were such unique and exciting experiences for me. Getting away for a few days to do something I really enjoy with people I really enjoy being around was something I looked forward to all year round. What was once a fun time with good people turned into a stress filled free for all with a focus on dollars over friends and unfamiliar faces with no idea what Jerzee Devil is. The fun just wasn't there last year and I believe that it's never going to return to the event I once truly loved attending. So, for any Devils in attendance this year I really hope you guys have a good time and that this experience is at least a shadow of its former self for you.

    Not gonna lie, I'm going to miss having you there.
    Won't be the same without you and Kuna... and I'm starting to think if you guys ain't there sandwich might not be.
    Then who will I hang out with!?
    Well, I'll just have to convert people to the JD or something.

    The wife and I are on the fence as well. This last grind-in was just too many people and not enough Devils. If there were a way to limit it to just JD folks and keep the overall number down so everything isn't so rushed we'd be all for it.

    The last time I went to a Grind In, the writing was on the Wall. This is a BRKT event NOT a JD event. And they treat it as such.

    Thank you Mike, Thank you Leslie. Thank you Jimmy and Thank you Jacquie. Thank You BRKT Staff specialy skittles.

    These were some of the best times I have ever had with strangers and the work you put into them was incredible.

    Time march's on and things change. It aint never gonna be what it once was. But we fucking rocked it for what it was worth.:devilcorn:

    Oh ya Thank you Ron, John and the rest of the JD. I always considered this a JD event and will see youse guys in the future.

    Somewhere:devilwag:
