Okay, who out there wants to present a 50-min informal workshop. informed discussion or demo at the Oregon Gathering on Saturday? We've had fabulous events in the past and I would be thrilled to repeat any one of them (if the presenters were willing). I would also like to offer some new topics so think about these two things and please respond here.
  • Is there a topic related to fiberglass trailers or camping on which you are willing to present?
  • Is there a topic related to fiberglass trailers or camping on which you would like more information?
Thanks for your help... as always!

Would there be any interest in my reprising my 2005 & 2006 Disaster Avoidance for Newbies workshop?

YES! It was a popular workshop with a lot in attendance. We will have a lot of newbies again this year. Thanks, Frederick.

Donna D. made these great suggestions....

"Maybe we could do the workshops on Friday instead of Saturday. I remember talking about it last year, with how rushed folks felt on Saturday with the trailer tours, fixing food for Pot Luck, etc.

"Or maybe split them over two days, everything NOT fiberglass related on Friday, everything Fiberglass trailer related on Saturday?"

What do you think?

Hi all - we like the idea of having all the workshops on Friday (or splitting them up, if necessary) and we know we will benefit from Frederick's "Disaster Blaster" workshop too. That's our 2 cents, FWIW. Thanx - LdB

I think it is a good idea to split the workshops. I like that idea. There were interesting workshops in the past and it was a great way to meet some new people.

I don't know if I have time to plan a workshop, but would anyone be interested in a 2-hour hands-on workshop that shows you how to build a simple, no big power tools required, good-looking replacement cabinet doors? (Participants would have to come prepared with certain tools and supplies to make this happen.)

Peter, instead of a full-blown workshop, maybe you could demo the process. Instead of participants, you could have an audience taking notes.

OK - I'll put my thinking cap on for something

I hope everyone else will too - at the Glass Egg meet in Langley, I was touting the number of workshops and fun things to do that the OR Gathering is famous for. Don't make me a liar!

I think you are onto something, Donna. When I say "workshop" I don't necessarily mean a workshop in the traditional sense. It can be an informed discussion with illustrations/examples or it can be a demo. Come on, everyone.... what do you want to learn about? What can you do that makes others go, "Well.... huh. That's interesting"?

I guess I have a noon time slot on Friday. I will be doing a dutch oven demonstration. I have talked three or four others into working with me to show how to make some main dishes, deserts, and of course pizza. I will also be talking about coal temperatures, seasoning cast iron, storing cast iron, some great recipes, and explaining what each person is putting together. By the time I stop talking I hope that those that attend will be able to have a late lunch of samples of all the food prepared. And that this might inspire others to make a dutch oven dish for the pot luck Saturday night. Of course we will need some idea of how many might want to attend so we know if you can fit into our camp spot or if we have to move the demo to someplace like Donna's camp site.

I know this topic was covered at past events, but I am interested in learning more about solar power. Is anyone interested in putting on a solar seminar?

Y'all come on over! I'll have a fork and plate all ready

No seriously, if you need the space... it's available.

Nancy: OK, I'll do a one-hour demo on how to make good-looking, light-weight, and easy-to-make replacement cabinet doors. No table-saw or power-miter (also known as a "cut-off" saw) required. Just a few simple hand tools and two power tools (a drill and an orbital sander).

Lainey: We had a solar demo last year. Perhaps we could encourage those presenters to do it again?

Lainey, I'm "workin' on" the one solar presenter from last year who will be attending this year's Gathering. I'll let you know.

I'm up for anything anyone can teach me! I definitly want to learn about dutch oven cooking (had to miss Lori's at San Antonio Lake) and about solar. I'd also like to learn how to replace rivets (I have one inside that needs to be done), and how to replace my lights with LED since I usually don't camp where there are hookups.

Would anyone do a workshop/demonstration on replacing rivets? Maybe patching fiberglass and LED lighting could be included?

Sounds good, I have my fingers crossed. If that doesn't work out, those with solar - be forewarned - I'll be dropping by to check it out!

I'm also game for attending an LED lighting workshop.

Is there any interest in an "Installing New Power Converter" demo? I would gladly supply the parts for a knowledgeable person to perform said 'demo' on my trailer. Okay, it's actually more like a plea for skilled labour... but if it's a topic that would interest any others maybe a demo workshop could be made out of it?
