It was recently announced that the 2011 Great Portable Sawmill Shootout will move just a bit closer to us over here on the Left Coast. Here at Bailey's we think the move to partner with The Official Paul Bunyan Show at the Guernsery County Fairgrounds in Ohio this October is a great decision. The dates for the event are October 7-9, 2011 - much later in the year than previous years.

There is no need to say 'unleaded regular gas'. It's all unleaded. Just say 'regular gas'. It's not the 70s anymore. (At least that's what my wife tells me.)

Skip will share her years of forest tending experience, both as a Tree Farmer and as a professional forester working with private forest owners.  Come prepared to learn a lot!

 
Skip Easter lives in Monett, Mo and tends her Tree Farm in Southwest Missouri in her spare time.  She works as a forester for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, providing forest and wildlife management expertise to private, rural landowners in southwest Missouri.  She is a contributor to Sawmill & Woodlot Magazine and a member of the Great Portable Sawmill Shoot-Out team.
