WoodMizer open house in Perkinston, MS. Feb 27, 2010
« on: February 06, 2010, 09:40:28 AM »
Mary and I would sure like to get down there to the open house.  From all we’ve heard about the place, it’d be an interesting  place just to visit – let alone attend a WM open house.  We’ve been suffering from an acute case of cabin fever and winter blues.  I don’t know if there is a way we can swing it, but we’d like to go.

Who’s been to the WM service center in Perkinston, MS? 

Anyone else attending?

I've been there. The place is a little out of the way, and not real easy to find, but it's well worth the trip. They had an LT15 with 50 feet of track set up to mill bridge beams. Don't miss the fire truck. I won't be able to make it, the wife will probably be bed fast for 6 more weeks. If you take the shortest (not the quickest) route from Mary's house to Perkinston, you'll come right past my place. Stop and visit.

Bibby, there is a slim chance that I could get down there.  Its about 3 hours from me.  If you get down to MS your Welcome to stop by.  I have been by there once, briefly, the service center has some interesting sights.

I went there to the 25th anniversary and back again for a open house. It is a interesting place and Tim is a great host. I am working dayshift or I would be there.

I went to the 25th Anniversary there too. It is an awesome place to visit. I have many pictures of it in my gallery. I have obedience training that day, so won't be able to make it.

So... why don't you just be disobedient and come to the open house instead.   :)

I am going try to make it down there. Need a few parts and see what is new this year. I assume the GA gang will be there.

Bibby, if you come thru NE MS give me a yell, I probably will go down on Friday morning.

I am going to try to make it Sat. There is one person at work who can cover for me that day. I hope he is up to it.

I am making plans to be there Saturday.  Short of an emergency.

fishpharmer has some. A low turnout due to anticipated rain. Gave me better odds on winning something in the drawings.
