OCTOBER Event - 2 Days

Recommended Posts

The Old Dominion Blacksmith Association will have at least 3 forge stations set up in Abbitt Park for both days of the Appomattox Railroad Festival. This is the 38th year of the festival that is expected to draw about 35,000 visitors over the two days. Over a dozen ODBSA members have signed up to take turns manning the forges to demonstrate their blacksmithing skills to the public. If you'll be at the festival or in the Central Virginia area, come on over and watch for a while.
For participating members, basic tools will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own if you like. If you are not currently an ODBSA member and have an interest in joining or learning about blacksmithing, we will have ODBSA brochures available at the festival with a membership application form inside. The weather looks to be perfect this weekend for getting outside, so come on down to Appomattox and join in the fun.

Sounds great Bill, almost enough to make me wish I lived closer to the lower 48. . . But. :rolleyes:

Looks like the festival demonstration was a big success! And ODBSA added six new members, too!

... from today's Current News

* It should have been against the LAW---- To have that much "FUN" as we all did at the Appomattox Railroad Festival EVENT this past weekend. David Hinshaw brought an extra forge station so we had four total, all of which were needed. We could have used one more Sat.
* This photo says so much! David Hinshaw's interaction amongst the public was amazing, especially with children.
