Title: Novi Outdoorarama?
Post by: johncinquo on February 19, 2003, 06:54:18 AM
Hey anyone know about this outdoorarama in Novi MI this weekend?  I think Jeff first mentioned it to me awhile back, and that they would have woodmizer there.  Correct or no?  I heard Ted Nugent this morn on the radio talking it up.  My back is actin up so no snowmobiling this weekend.  Too many miles on whoopy doo trails.   JB

Back from St Ignace today leaving for Novi in da mornin. Nah, I doubt if there will be any sawmills there. This is mosty an outdoor show. Hunting fishing camping, outfitters teddly nugent will be there one day. We are there to remind people that those tall woody plants out there where they have all thier fun are trees. ;D

I consider that fun to be a forest product. :)

I wish you had a bunch of examples of spikes and tramp metal in logs and damaged sawblades and downtime financial reports to show those that hang their coleman lantern on a nail in the tree and build there tree stand with a tree for support.

Your bandaged hand would suffice for flying shrapnel. :D

Yea, but they never showed us!  The days I was there was a bust. A major storm came through Saturday and scared everybody off.

Here are some of our pics all from our MFRA display.

That was taken before they opened. It looked like that Friday evening and Saturday evening too. The only people walking around had vender tags on.  At least this year I got to site see!

I found a guy that is going to plasma cut my saw for me there. He sells some pretty cool metal art and really wuite reasonable.

He said he would do my saw for about 100 bucks. I just gotta find a way to get it to traverse City during the week one handed. ??? :D
