    We will have another field day on September 18, 2016 at the Freetown State Forrest. All are welcome. Please post if you plan to attend

    Thanks

    Wolf


    Food:

    Moe has offered to make up a platter of chicken. I’ll bring a side of Mac and Cheese and a traditional Native dish of Succotash.

    And we can always hope for the famous Sugar-bombs!


    Classes:


    Swampyankee is bringing along his shaving horse. That should be fun to play with.

    I’m trying to get Medic 17, if he attends, to do something with first aid. If not I’ll do a class, most likely on eye injuries.

    Rick and Jay are going to get volunteered into talking about their carving hatchet modifications. They just don’t know it yet :D

    Finally I’m working on someone to talk about hot tents; with winter ahead it should be a fun topic.

    Attendees:

    I will put this in my calendar and hope nothing else comes up. What should I typically prepare for with this event?

    I provide a lunch so all you really need is something to drink and clothing appropriate for being out of doors all day. If you have a mess kit you should bring that as well. We do have a supply of paper plates, but sometimes they go quickly.

    Other than that you can bring anything you like. We have a trade area so if you are looking for anything or trying to sell or trade some of your stuff bring that.

    It’s a great place to meet folks and pick up a few pointers, I hope you can make it!

    Not at the Freetown site Alan, they don't allow overnight camping in that state forest.

    I will be bringing my shave horse and a cpl of draw knives if anyone woukd like to give it a try. I am a newb myself with it so I dont really have much in the way of knowledge to pass on it. I'll bring a cpl of slabs ppl can work. I hear a shavehorse really helps for roughing in a spoon for any of you spoon guys that wanna try it out.

    If it will help I’ll make Moe wear a dress, Swamp can toss around a telephone pole, and I’ll cook a Hagis :D


    I get there around 0700 and people start arriving shortly thereafter. We usually wind up around 1530 but people come and go throughout the day.

    LOL, getting me to wear a dress might be harder than you think, There ain't much I wouldn't do for a friend, but that there might just be one of them.

    I have not been to the Faire since before i was married, the wife and I have talked about going this year; when the weather cools off I'm pretty sure we'll get there this season. Giant turkey leg here I come!

    Moe is bringing chicken. I was going to do the succotash in a Dutch oven, if you’d like you can make it instead.

    I can make the succotash if you like. I have not made it before but will give it a shot. Corn and lima beans, red and green peppers some onion bacon and either cream or tomato according to a few recipes I just read.

    Just got a call from the subdriver. He had a cardiac event this AM and wound up in the hospital, so he will not be attending this weekend.
