Well The Gathering of the Blacksmiths is over. I would like to thank everyone that helped and supported us. The attendance was low but we had a great time. Brian Brazeal was awsome. We literally had to take his anvil & forge to get him to stop. Thanks to John Richter for forgin Damascus all weekend & Keith Hicks for his Demo. Joel & Ken did agreat job with the viking demo. Here are the links to the last 2 albums.https://picasaweb.google.com/covforge/GatheringOfTheBlacksmiths572011?authkey=Gv1sRgCKrfpr3eqa_owAE#

Thanks for sharing the photos Travis, it looks like everyone had a good time. I have seen Brian Brazeal demonstrate many times and I am always impressed with what he can do with a hammer and anvil

Thank you Gerald. I was going to get to The Learning Station in my next post. Gerald spent the weekend teaching. Mostly Boy Scouts. He has no idea how much this meant to those young men. Everyone of them personally thanked us for having them.

Lyle,

You have an idea there. IFI is welcome to come out. Or another weekend during the year. The fair grounds are a great place expecially yesterday when it was raining & we didn't have to worry because everything was under a roof.

The photo of the three is Brian, Dave Hutchison from ABANA & Me. I had forgot to mention ABANA was well represented & a lot of questions & misconceptions were straitened out. Thanks to Lance Davis for listening all weekend. Gerald , Lance and Dave represented ABANA well.
The phote with Brian & the fork & spoon is for the Fair Committy to display with the items for all to see.

I also forgot to mention thanks to Hunter Perkinson for the great sign & the Pineapple for the auction also all of your work.

We have already reserved the Fairgrounds for May 4,5 & 6 2012 . What would bring you to Virginia for this conference? What would you like to see?

Glen if you would like to have a IFI area there is a lot of room. I'm sure we can work it out.
