Default Flock to the 2nd,3rd,4th Hastings Nebraska

Hey everyone sorry for the late notice but I would like invite the group members our metal shaping event here in our shop, Flock to the Shop will be held at our shop in Hastings Nebraska June 2nd, 3rd,& 4th! The shop is airconditioned so don't worry about the Nebraska heat. If you would like to attend say so here in this thread so I know what to prepare for, we will be capping attendance at 50 people. THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE TO ATTEND THIS EVENT!!!!! But this is a working event so if you don't get your hands dirty you WILL NOT BE FED! So bring parts and pieces that you may want to see a different approach on or something that is giving you fits some one here will have a simple solution I guarantee it.
Breakfast, Lunch, snacks and refreshments will be provided all three days. Also there will be seminars all three days also, if you are interested in presenting a seminar please let me know and I will start putting together a schedule and floor plan for the seminars.
We will once again be doing our gas welding shootout, everyone that wishes to participate will gas weld the same size coupon as everyone else and our panel of judges will decide who the winner is. The winner will receive the traveling trophy that is to be surrendered by next years event. The trophy also comes with a cash prize that may or may not be glued to the trophy.
This year we will be adding two other activities to the event, a Tig welding shootout same rules apply as the gas welding shoot out. The 2nd addition this year will be the Camp Fire Keester Challenge. Some events in the past have done a tool exchange where the tools are made a head of time and exchanged at the event, with the Camp Fire Keester Challenge we want to see those tools that can be made in roughly a hour here at the event (materials provided) that got you out of a jam and they will be exchanged at the end of the event so get those ideas cooking.
If you have any questions feel free to give me a call here at the shop 1402-462-8581 Hope to see you guys here in June!

Joshua, everyone that wants to participate will weld the same size coupon with the same machine at the settings of they prefer. The idea is that we have so many talented people that will be here but rarely do you get to see how someone else does the same thing as you but slightly different. That way you can watch the other guys and maybe have a light bulb moment of oh ok that's why!

Last year we torture tested the samples and the ones that survived moved on to final judging, just fun to see real world welding and testing and the different methods to get the same place. The winner will be awarded a traveling trophy and cash prize that may or may not be glued to the trophy and it will need to be surrendered before next years event.

If you have any questions feel free to give me a call here at the shop 1402-462-8581. I will post the list of attendees a little later today, there are still some spots avalable.
