Would you like to have November meeting at the Folk School?

Posted: Nov 30, -0001 7:15 Pm

Steve Gurzler has offered to host the November CDBA meeting at the Adirondack Folk School. For those of you who aren't familiar with The Folk School, it is located in Lake Luzerne, NY. They have a very nice blacksmithing area, with multiple forging stations, and I have been informed, this area is now heated! It's roughly an hour or so drive from albany, but it will be worth it. Please let me know if there is interest in this, so I may inform Steve of our acceptance of his gracious offer!
