                                                                 Long Island, Va.

Had a good day at Bobby's, Plantation Forge. The weather held out with no rain and wasn't to hot. Had 66 items on the Iron in the Hat, from a cowboy hat, to a bean flip. I want to thank everyone for coming and 

supporting the group. And Sue And Robert for doing the cooking and everyone that brought something. No one went away hungry. We made enough to pay for the insurance and web page for another year. 

Lee Sauder and his HAND and SQUARE corners

This will be our "IRON in the HAT" meeting for 2018. It will be at Bobby Floyd's, Plantation Forge, in Long Island. For directions, look on Schedule of Events 2018.

Demonstrator will be Lee Sauder's, demonstrating square corners and hands.

 I would like everyone that has a forge or access to a forge, to make at least one item for the Iron in the Hat Table. You have over a month. Please send me a picture and I will post it, so everyone can see what will be on the table, save money, and buy tickets:)

For the "IRON IN THE HAT" Everyone will need to bring an item or items worth $10 or more (Hand made forged items preferred) to put on the table and purchase at least $15 worth of tickets ($1 each). The meeting will start at 10:00 AM, but come early, so we can get you signed in. This year, the tickets will be different. When you sign in, your name tag will have a number on it. When you buy tickets, write the number on the tickets. This will save you from having to check the tickets for the numbers. 

LUNCH: Robert Minnix will make The fixings for lunch, World famous Ceder Rock Forge, Pull Pork, Bake Beans and Cold Slaw. There will be a little competition between Rob's Pull Pork Sauce and Lori's World Famous Falling River Forge Sauce. You be the judge. Lunch will $7.

Deserts & Stuff: We need some side dishes and deserts. If you are going to bring something, let me know. I will put the dish beside you name, so everyone will know and want bring to many of one thing. 

This year ODBSA will purchase a single burner, gas forge, from Hell's Forge, They will also be there to talk about their forges and answer any questions.
