Come on Dennis, plan a trip to Amsterdam. Let me guess; Koblenz - Amsterdam on a weekend ... a 4 hour drive. You are happily invited to join the fun and meet "The Man" himself.
Jurphaas. :D

Jurphaas,

I'm seriously considering that. It's been awhile since I met you and the Glessers. Will Ed be with you again?

Dennis

@npueppke, if you won't be staying in the east of Germany, it would be overkill to fly. A car will do fine :D

Yeah I looked again, train looks like a better option (I won't own a car over there). I'm considering going, looks like a sweet opportunity (being fairly new to Spyderco especially). We'll see.

Hello everyone,

I'll be there, thanks to Jur !
So you can count on me (but not beyond 5000, because then I get bored... :D )

Whieee - All who have registered so far have been sent a confirmation. This includes you.

Nemo - Good to have you on board. Sal will enjoy meeting you again and so will I.

Dennis - I don't know if Ed will be coming to the meet. As you know, Micheal Janich joined the Spyderco ranks and it might be so that he will travel with Sal and the gang as I presume (but not for sure!!) that he will be with us for the IWA show in Nürnberg a week later.... However I have no confirmation on this yet!

Alright guys spread the word and come to Amsterdam to see the fantastic future models we are working on and to meet Sal, Gail & Eric!

Cheers, :)
