Celebrating 36 years of BAM - Founded 11/4/1983
|"Back in the early days of BAM everything was new to us. Our meetings were held in old garages and sheds, and we would huddle around the anvil as everyone took turns demonstrating his newest discovery. The members who knew how to forge weld seemed to posses some magical power that elluded the rest of us. They would smash together white hot steel as we watched in amazement. Like growing up, there was a newness about it all that could only happen once." - Jerry Hoffmann|
| The BAM meeting for March 28 has been canceled to comply with the order restricting the size of gatherings due
to the Corona virus.
The State Fairgrounds has also canceled all events on the fairgrounds until May 10, effectively canceling our 2020 Ozark conference.
