Default McGrew CNC Camp Aspire

With a Heavy Heart I am going to have to not plan a Camp here this year,

1) I may be moving the entire shop at or near the camp dates
2) I could be scheduled for Some More Surgery on my Leg
3) while there is strong Support for the camp I cannot seem to develop a program i feel comfortable with.

If I wait til Next year I can be better prepared to extend the Good will We have built up all these years.

Thanks, Vectric had been working on supporting this Camp, and has been a great supporter all along.

Hello Jim,

I imagine you have took some careful thinking to making this decision, and we fully support it. You have a good following due to your past camps and all the support you post on the forums and social media, and I can imagine you want to stay true to the camp without the stress of a move and future health support. Good luck with the move and keep us posted on the new venture! We will look forward to getting back with you on future plans for 2020.

Jim,
Best wishes for a successful relocation and even better wishes for a successful surgery. I will pray for good outcomes for both events. While it may be disappointing that there will be no camp, as the old saying goes absence makes the heart grow fonder. Just think how much fun the next camp will be! And hopefully I can make that one....

1) Your health comes first over everything else
2) I'm sure that the next camp will be excellent in every way, no matter when it happens to get scheduled

Best wishes to you and Happy New Year!

Sorry to hear this, Jim. I was looking forward to attending this year. I hope you feel better soon, or a speedy recovery if you opt for surgery.

Iíll look forward to attending next year Jim. Man has to take care of himself. I learned a lot at the camp last year but will admit that a lot of it was over my head. I think the next camp will be more helpful to me with more software experience under my belt.
