We will be raffling three toolboxes again this year. Please condsider making a donation to the toolboxes. Any tool (hammer, tongs, punches, chisels, etc.), handmade or purchased, or forge supply item (flux, gloves, safety glasses, soapstone, etc.) will be welcome. This raffle is always a popular event at the conference and contributes a sizeable amount to our conference income.
Please bring your touch marks to the conference. We are going to have aluminum plates with numbers that you can stamp with your touchmark and then write your name down on the sheet so we can get a library of all the touch marks.
