Remember Bowie's hammer-in? We may resurrect it...

Was just tipped off about this thread. If such an event were to happen I would be happy to support it in any way possible. Will attend if it's on a free weekend. Lots of great memories from the events at Ron's.

I was going to holler once we have a venue and date nailed down.  You're one of the prize guests and vendors, after all!  B)

We haven't had a response from the board about dates, so we are going to present them with a list of dates to choose from. If no word then, we have an alternate venue that's just as good.

 

I'm thinking early fall, like late September or early October. Anyone have a preference? Late April or early May could work as well.

As I am looking forward a lot to attend, I can’t be picky so either date range would have to work for me.
However April/May less waiting……weather should be good, etc.

 I prefer a day that is 60 to 75°F, partly cloudy to mostly sunny, with a light breeze and 0% rain chance.

Other than that I'm not picky.

We're currently aiming at either the second or third weekend in September, or the middle three weekends of October.  Trying to get confirmation from the board at Rocky Mount State Historic Site.  If they don't respond, we have a great (possibly better!) alternate venue lined up in Unicoi, TN.  This is going to happen!  We know y'all need dates ASAP so you can line up leave from work, etc, so we're trying to get a date before January 1.  Plus we need to be able to tell potential demonstrators far enough in advance for them to get it on the schedule.  

 

Like Bowie's, it will be a Friday-Saturday-Sunday event.  Probably half-days Friday and Sunday, depends on the demonstrators.

In that case, we'll be in touch. B)

 

You need to join the State of Franklin Blacksmith's Guild!  We meet the second Sunday of every month in the barn at Rocky Mount State Historic Site.  Official start time is 1:30 pm, but we're usually there by 12:30 to talk prior to demos.
