Update:

  Discussion centered around the concept of forming a co-op of sorts and possibly joining as grading bureau as a group.   With the group as a memeber thought was that perhaps we could then have the service of the bureau overseeing the the co-op and a few selected graders throughout the year for one major fee.  Some would pay a larger fee based on lumber production.  Many questions and no specific solutions until we meet with one particular bureau in the very near future, a week or so.  I plan on being in attendance at the meeting with the chosen bureau to negotiate through questions and answers.

We are looking at two bureaus at this time: West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau out of Portland and Timber Products Inspection out of Vancouver, Washington.

  We may even look into creating our own bureau.  Similar to New Hamshire's concept.

Yes we have, Don.  Some of the thoughts were the distance and the costs involved with both.
