Thanks Jeff! Yep, in the respective locations' time zones. It's very exciting. We're just running a handful this time around, but aim to make it an annual event. It's good for our owners too, cause they get to showcase their businesses/products.

Hey beenthere. Unfortunately Russ is unable to go ahead with the demonstration in Iowa this year, he's flat tack with work and has no free time that weekend.  :(

To follow will be another post with a list of locations, and links to register people's attendance  :)

Thanks for the update. It was going to be a good 5 hour trip, and just wanted to check it out.
No plans to purchase a mill now.

No worries :-) You're welcome any time. Hopefully there will be one a little closer to you next time. All visitors are welcome to our public demos.

Only a few days to go until our demo day! Our blades are nice and sharp, the yard is clear, we've got some sweet logs including the hardwood Jarrah and we're going to be videoing the whole thing!

We'll upload a highlights reel to our YouTube page in a couple of weeks so you can see how it all went.  :)

If you're able to make it to any of the demo locations, you certainly won't be sorry. And if you do, please take some photos and send them through to us: marketing@petersonsawmills.com.

Catch you on the flip side! Get it? Swing blade... flip... hmmm. hehe  8)
