2014 Convention - Manufacturing

Outside Swine Barn

August is just around the corner and plans for the 2014 Convention are shaping up nicely. We just returned from the Spring Planning Meeting in Mason City and are pleased to report that our manufacturing site is a fixed structure with (mostly) concrete flooring, known as the Swine Barn. The barn will provide Manufacturing with space measuring approximately 60'x200', much like we had last year and enough space to house 50 manufacturing stations. We will also have space available in an adjacent structure to accommodate temporary "special purpose" activities. Since we will not have the need to rent a tent this year, there will be no need for a Manufacturing fee, but we will continue to utilize pre-registration and assignment of stations based on activities performed. To register for a space, complete the form linked to this page and email to .

Some things to remember about PGI Manufacturing:

  • There is a limit of 50 manufacturing stations.
  • Stations will be assigned based on a first come, first served basis.
  • Presses will be assigned to perimeter spaces only.
  • Each station is required to provide a volunteer for at least one 4 hour shift in Manufacturing. Preferences should be noted on the Manufacturing registration form. Every effort will be made to accommodate day/time requests.
  • Manufacturers may drop off equipment on Friday and receive station assignments.
  • Manufacturing activities begin Saturday at 8am.
  • Manufacturing is "open" from 8am until 8pm Saturday through Friday and "closed" during the banquet.
  • All items must be moved from the Manufacturing day box to the magazine by 8pm each evening. Any items left in the day box after 8pm will be removed for destruction.
  • Manufacturers must clean up their station before leaving. This includes disassembling the table, stacking table materials in the designated area, sweeping, and returning station paperwork.
Looking forward to seeing you in Mason City!
