East TN Area guitar builders meeting

Not sure if this is the right place to post this or how much response it will get but here goes.
I hope that I am not posting to an incorrect area but I want anyone who is interested to see this.
I work at the Woodcraft store in Knoxville TN and I have been building electric guitars for several years and have participated and enjoyed the TDPRI contacts and info.
I have obtained permission from the store owner to use our classroom to host a luthier's group. I have been collecting names and contact info from customers that share this interest (CrazyDave) and will soon be sending emails to them. There is no cost involved, just an interest in sharing your knowledge in instrument building.
This is an open invitation to all in the East TN area who would like to be involved. I have reserved the classroom for Feb 10, 2013 from 2:00PM-4:30PM. This meeting will be a meet n greet and discussion of how everyone would like to proceed. I am hoping for a mix of all styles and skill levels of builders, (acoustic, electric, bass, mandolin, etc). Everyone is welcome. Bring along one of your completed projects to show off and discuss if you would like. You never know, some pickin' could break out.
If you are interested or have any questions or suggestions drop me a PM, email or contact me at the store, (865) 539-9330 . The store is located at 8023 Kingston Pike Knoxville, TN 37919. This is just east of West Town mall in the same plaza as Barnes & Noble.

Hope to see you there,
Paul

I'd really love to meet everyone but at 2530 miles for an afternoon is a bit much. Sad :-(

The response here and at the OLF (Official Luthier Forum) to the meeting has been good. Looks like 10 + for sures so far. Have gone so far as to reserve the room for 3-10 for the second meeting. Also have possible speakers lined up for future meetings, one from a lacquer finishing supplier and another from a exotic wood distributor. Will see what happens.
