2018 Convention - Manufacturing

August is just around the corner and plans for the 2018 Convention are shaping up nicely. Despite the cold and snow, we were able to survey the grounds. Manufacturing will be located in the same barn as last time, so there should be enough space to get everyone under the same roof. We should also have room for special projects.

There's no Manufacturing fee this year. Pre-registration begins on June 1st, via e-mail. Stations will be assigned based on your planned activities. Manufacturing is limited to 50 stations, and Mason City is a well-attended convention site, so please register early. If you only intend to manufacture for a few hours or a couple of days, please consider sharing a space, so we can accommodate more people. You'll must select at least two volunteer shifts. We'll need everyone's help to keep manufacturing open twelve hours daily.

We strive to maintain the level of safety and organization you've come to expect in Manufacturing. Dianne Hauschild , Manufacturing Chair, will be your primary point of contact once you arrive.

Things to keep in mind when registering:

  • Registrants must be current members.
  • Preference will be given to those registered for Convention.
  • Limit of 50 manufacturing stations.
  • Stations assigned based on first come, first served basis.
