Sept. 29 - Oct.1

Looks like I'll be reloading my program from last year which I had to cancel because of the dreaded wild parsnip (seriously)  Wild Parsnip Caution

So I'll give a slide-talk :  Opening to the Far-Green: Imagination and the creative process  

and a demo: Cold Forming Copper Fittings Using Uchidashi

Tim should be announcing the rest of the program soon, but I wanted to get the dates up here ASAP. Hope a lot of you can make it. Always a good time.

I would love to come along but think I will be making the sword year a reocuring theme, hopefully see you there in 3 years.

Is Sam going to demo getting tasered in the ass again?  That would be worth the trip! :lol:
