The next quarter sawing project.
« on: April 04, 2017, 04:05:40 am »
The next quarter sawing project will be on May 19 and 20. All are welcome to come. For those that haven't been or the others that can't remember how to get here the address is.
1607 Capps Browning rd.
Rentz, Ga. 31075
The Wood Doc has been very generous and has offered to teach a one day grading course on the 19th for those that are interested. The only cost will be for the literature.  There will be a sawing the log in half with a chainsaw demo. There has been a few requests for this. This demo will come after Gene has finished his class, so it might be later on Fri. or earlier on Saturday depending on how long things take. Then the sawing and eating will take place on Saturday.
Lets keep a head count going so we will know how many to feed. I will be there so I make 1.
If you are planning on bringing something to contribute to the eating please chime in on what you are bringing so others will know and we don't have several of the same thing. Looking forward to seeing everyone that can make it.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.

Jake, I've been wanting to attend one of your get-togethers for years.  I'll check with the Doc to see if she's going to be home that weekend, and if so I'll plan on attending.

Missed this last year and plan to be there this year.  How far away is the State Park?  That might be a good place to stay for a couple of nights.  We'll think of what to bring and add that later.

     It should go without saying, I'll be there again.  Both days this time, I think.  I'm not sure how many that makes confirmed now.
