Let's not forget Dan Pate for bringing his flattop grill all the way from Minnesota. He not only cooked breakfast and lunch he paid for all the food.

Yes. Dan brought some Marchant style dies. They were ona table in the middle of the room beside the snap on tool bag. Saturday morning, the shrink dies were missing.

Hopefully, they will be turn up. If someone finds them with their stuff when they unload, please get them back to Dan.

These are the stretch versions. The missing shrinks are similar.

The next 4 pictures are of Bill Tromblay and his seminar on Oxy- hydrogen welding of aluminum. He also hosted an evening session where we each got a chance to test our skills. Billís welding skillset and ability to clearly explain it allowed most everyone to complete a good weld joint. Thanks Bill

Mike Phillips hosted a seminar using Mike Stinsonís very nicely built power hammer. Mike explained and demonstrated how to use the hammer to shape a door skin (low crown), and a reverse panel. Thanks mike for a very informative seminar.

Next up pat Brubaker explained and demonstrated a number of alternative shrinking methods. The use of an oxy-acetylene torch to shrink all four sides of a square panel to create a low crown panel, and how to use his dies in an arbor press to create a high crown section for a fender repair.
Thanks pat you had everyone watching intently.

It's nice to see all those familiar faces I wish I could be there it's also strange to see all those people gathering together with no mask, Here in OZ at the moment we could not have such a meting due to the lock down ,and if I was to try and get caught the find is $10.000 ,it's that bad at the moment with the restrictions that only 2 people are allowed to be in the same room at the same time RIGHT or WRONG with the restrictions ? Here in Victoria we only have a few Covid cases at the moment

To all involved all I can say is WELL DONE ! and may be ? In the near future I will be able to join you guys
