Much thanks goes out to Jerry Holmes and his wife for hosting our January meeting. Jerry’s shop is well suited for accommodating several people and everyone had a great time.
We had 15 members in attendance along with 5 or 6 guests. Our trade item was a set of tongs. I always like it when our trade items are something we can use at our own shops. We had two forges going with lots of participation and instruction.
During our business meeting we discussed the up-coming smelt scheduled for later this month, reminder of our yearly dues, and some opportunities of setting up blacksmithing demo’s at community events in the coming year.
