Not sure if this is the right place, but after reviewing the other categories this seems to be the best fit.  Mods please let me know if this is the right spot or not.

Wanted to give everyone a heads up about a shave meet up being held in Seattle, WA USA on Sept 19th.  This is a free event for everyone.  I have shamelessly asked for donations from almost 100 different vendors and have received QUITE a bit of stuff to give out to people at the raffle.  There will be straights, safeties, brushes, soaps, creams, strops and more to look at and a lot of like minded folks to discuss your obsession hobby with.  Feel free to bring the significant other along, it's a nice place an I know others are doing the same.

The 2nd Annual Seattle Shave Convention is happening Sept 19th at Fados Irish Pub. We are trying to get together fellow wet shavers from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Northern California, and Western Canada. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to attend. Last years event was a lot of fun and think we can step it up a notch this year.

I have scraped together a website for a central point to reference updates and FAQs. www.seattleshavecon.com

Directions : Parking : Lodging

Join your friends for a fun filled, educational afternoon of all things related to razors and shaving, finally meet all of the people you have been chatting with online, and meet completely new shaving enthusiasts.

Some of the topics covered will be honing, stropping, maintenance of your equipment, restoration tips and tricks, loading a shaving brush, lathering a soap… you name it we will probably have someone there who can help.

Bring your razors, your brushes, your loom or whatever it is. If it's shave related we want to see it. Show it off or get a second opinion. Make us jealous.

Bringing friends who are interested in encouraged. You do not need to be part of a forum to attend. This is about bringing the community together, not creating differences. Selling and trading is allowed and encouraged.

Keep up to date with the latest and greatest news of who is coming to the meet, what goodies you will get to see and what is being raffled off. Sign up for our newsletter at www.seattleshavecon.com


And some of the vendors who have donated to the cause:

For future reference, the meet will be the second or third weekend of September next year as well. The weather is still pretty good for most people traveling and most of the folks with family have wrapped up their summer vacation.
