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|
| We are wanting to let all our friends and members know that longtime BAM member
