In case you haven't heard, Jerry (pineywoods) has been organizing a gathering for 4 years in north Florida on a large tract of land that he owns and this coming April will make the 5th such event. after seeing the growth that it has enjoyed and the way that it is handled, I have asked Jerry if we could make it an SMF official event.
SMF will co-sponsor the event and I will be there to take pictures, shoot some video and to hang the official SMF banner.
This will not change the way it is run and Jerry is still the man in charge.. this just means that in future events, we may be able to get companies to sponsor the event with prizes, equipment for use at the event and perhaps even logo t-shirts, hats, etc..
This year looks to be the biggest one yet and that is a testament to the way it is organized and run and all of the people that pitch in to make it an event that is worthy of being dubbed "SMF Official".
I am extremely excited about the event and I hope all of you are too. I would like to meet as many of you as possible and if you can find a way to make it happen then I think you will be very glad that you did.
Here is the main thread for the event:
