The Great Lakes Kiln Drying Association along with North Central Technical College are hosting a Kiln Drying short course for drying quality lumber.  This course would be informative for any size operator and for any type of drying operation from solar and DH to conventional.  The dates are August 7-10 and will be held at the NTC campus in Antigo Wisconsin.  Below is a link to the brochure

     Anybody know of any kiln classes coming up in the next couple of months I can recommend sending a couple of people to?  Specifically DH kilns.  This is training they need pretty badly.
