Our Ninth Birthday
Nine years of teachin' smithin'

We started in May of '07, and it's been uphill ever since.
Well over a thousand students have experienced the thrill of imposing their will on incandescent steel since then.

It'll be pretty much the usual semi-pot-luck, we'll trick out forge 3 with a grill and charcoal for tasty cooking of tasty things.
Please feel free to bring something to put on the grill, on the table, or in a cup.
Gluten-free items are especially appreciated.

We'll start about 4 and go until... 10-ish ... however long we maintain critical mass.

If you'd like to feel that there's a theme to the party... let's go with "the opposite of Nine" and do with that concept what you will.

This is intended to be a party more than anything else, if you want to talk about classes, or buy something, we will accommodate you, but we're not going to start anything.
