2017 Convention - Manufacturing

August is just around the corner and plans for the 2017 Convention are shaping up nicely. Manufacturing will be located in the same barn as last time, but the bleachers have been removed, so there should be enough space to get everyone under the same roof. We should also have ample room for special projects.

There's no Manufacturing fee this year but, we will utilize pre-registration and assignment of stations based on planned activities. You can begin registering now. Keep in mind that we have only 50 stations, so please plan to register in advance. If you only plan to manufacture for a few hours or a couple of days, please try to coordinate sharing a space with someone else so we can accommodate as many people as possible. You'll need to provide at least two choices for a volunteer shift. We need everyone's participation to keep manufacturing open 12 hours every day!

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

Some things to remember:

  • Limit of 50 manufacturing stations.
  • Stations will be assigned based on a first come, first served basis.
  • Presses will only be assigned to perimeter spaces.
  • Each station is required to provide a volunteer for at least one 4 hour shift in Manufacturing. Note your preference(s) on the registration form. Every effort will be made to accommodate your requests.
  • You may drop off equipment and receive your station assignment on Friday.
  • Activities begin Saturday at 8am.
  • Manufacturing is "open" from 8am until 8pm Saturday through Friday and "closed" during the banquet.
  • All items must be removed from the day box and placed in the magazine by 8pm each evening. Any items left in the day box will be destroyed.
  • You must clean up your station before leaving; including, disassembling the table, stacking table materials in the designated area, sweeping, and returning station paperwork.
We look forward to seeing you in West Fargo!
