WV Small Farm Conf
« on: February 09, 2016, 12:58:57 pm »
   Got my card from WM a day or so back about subject event. hbeane had mentioned it was coming in some of his threads.

   According to my card it is:

Feb 25th - 27th
Thur 9-4   Fri 9-5   Sat 9-12  (Sawing times differ from Show times)
200 Civic Center Dr. - Charleston WV 25301
web site smallfarmcenter.extwvu.edu

    Says a hydraulic mill will be shown.

    Sounds like a Marty Parsons event and if so maybe he can chime in with more details. Hope to make it and see you all there.

Hello,
   Yes we will be there. We will be outside. We will have a hydraulic mill and a small mill in operation.

Here is a link to the show for information.

 http://www.smallfarmcenter.ext.wvu.edu/events/conference

 
It is $70 / day or $190 for all 3 days. This is for the farm training sessions.  We will be outside with the demonstrations. There will be no fee to see our demonstration.

Thanks!

Marty

Hello,
   There may be some issues with the show location and not have a mill in operation there. It is a long story and complex.
If you have questions you can contact us. If you are attending the conference for farm training that part is all good. It is just related to running the Wood Mizer mills outside not anything else related to the show. We will still be attending but may not even have a mill on display. Just a table and a Video.

Thanks!
Marty

Hello,
   We have this all resolved. We will be outside the convention center in the parking lot. Looks like snow for  Tuesday and Wednesday.  smiley_whacko  Weather man is rushing the forecast  lets hope they are not correct.

Thanks

Hello,
  Looks like a little rain then clear sky for Saturday. 47 degrees and sunny. I think we will take that forecast.
Thanks
