No, no one has invited to fly me down under to report (though I am still willing to negotiate!), but, since I know folks from the South-side check in, I wanted to make sure folks knew about this cool-sounding event: the Wooden Boat Festival, held this year in Melbourne, Australia on February 20-21. According to reader Richard Monfries, who alerted us of this event, this is the first time the event has been in Melbourne. Well worth a looksee, and sorry I won’t make it (though I would look nice in a press pass – I’m just saying).
Please post comments or send an email with any neat news from the events.
