Next Meeting

OABA AGM, Saturday, Oct 18, 2014,
Fergus Forge - Fergus, ON
RR 3, 6723 Jones Baseline, Fergus, ON

Sean Stoughton will be demonstrating how to make tongs, including the use of forge welding to weld on the reins. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to make a fundamental tool of blacksmithing and also to learn forge welding.

This will also be our AGM. We will have our annual treasurer's report and, as necessary, conduct elections for vacant positions. More importantly, we will also be discussing upcoming plans and directions for OABA, so please come out and help guide what direction you want our organization to go in.

Safety Glasses are Mandatory whenever you are in the demonstration area. NO EXCEPTIONS

As always, our meetings begin at 10am and are open to both members and non-members.
