I went to the one the had a few years ago, and I was disappointed.  Wasn't too much for us commercial guys, but those who wanted small band mills had a nice selection.  Some of those operators are now out of business.

More than likely I'll show up on Friday afternoon.

That means that he would be lurking behind the tent and watching everything you do but you wouldn't know who he was, eh?

You gotta get him to register if he attends. :D :D

Actually, if you want to see the hommies and the wutzs, you have to go in January.  If the avian flu ain't too bad, they even have a few hinkels.  There are always sheep, goats and horses there as well.

They have a sheep to shawl contest where they bring out sheep, shear them, spin yarn and make a shawl.  I've never seen it, but it draws the crowds.

They also have horse pulls.  And they have a ton of food.  Everything in this area revolves around food.  

(For those not refined in PA Dutch a hommie is a calf, a wutz is a young pig, and a hinkel is a chicken.  And you just thought I was full of winternaus.)

 Roll Call

 Who is planning on attending since we are now closer to the event  ? I will probably be in the area attending a scrollsaw competition  at the Lebanon Expo Center on Sat and Sun but Fri is open. If anyone likes to watch sprintcars race they should stop at Williams Grove Speedway on Fri . night . We  went last year and they put on one heck of a show for like $12 a person.

   The HLMA show has moved around the state over the years. Before it was in Harrisburg they held it at the fairgrounds in York. Ten or twelve years ago it was at the fairgrounds in Bloomsburg., the one where they have the monster truck races. The farm show complex is the best venue so far simply because of its size and facilities. I agree with Ron, in that over the years the focus of the exhibitors have shifted from full-time, commercial mills to small commercial, part-time and hobby mills. This just mirrors what is happening in the industry as a whole, as the membership ranks of this forum can attest.
  About the only thing shown that interests me anymore is rolling stock, and I don't need to drive three or four hours to look at trucks and skidders. Still, I always try to attend just so I don't miss something. They moved the dates of the show this year, however. It used to be in mid-May, now it is in mid-June. In our parts that is the middle of first-cutting hay. If it rains I may drive out with a friend who runs a mill, but if it is nice I'll bale hay and go to Richmond next year.

I have to work Friday so looks like Saturday is my only option. ??? Not sure if it will take all day to see everything, but I will probably try to be there when it opens at 9:00.
I just checked the WEB site again and they still havenít posted the schedule of seminars.
Hope to meet some of you there. :) :)

I'm about 1/2 hr from the show.  I was planning on going Friday to beat the crowd.  I usually go in the afternoon.  Weather is supposed to suck both days.

Parking shouldn't be any problem either day.  I haven't seen too much advertising by the sponsors, other than mailings from old lists.  The parking should be free.  Overflow is usually directed to the HACC parking lot.

Parking is $5.  Woodmizer, Baker and Timber Harvester have running mills.  Cord King is making firewood, as well as some Hakki Pilke.  Some nice add ons for those 4x4 tractors.

Ron
Sorry we missed you. ::) I was at the Woodmizer station from 10:00 to about 10:45. About 10:15 hiya  and his son   came over and introduced them selfís. :o :D WV_hillbilly was coming but he changed from to Saturday  to Friday at the last minuet, so we werenít expecting anyone else. ???  Next time we need to all wear pink shirts or something so we stand out. Well maybe not pink, but you get the idea.

Spent a couple hours walking around with hiya, checking out all the neat equipment. Was nice to talk to someone with an interest in milling. Most of my friends give me that (you must be nuts to do all that work) ??? ??? LOOK when I talk about sawing. :P

Well, I was standing there until about 11:00.  The problem was I didn't know who I was looking for or at.   :D  I couldn't read everyone's name tag, and even if I could, you didn't have your forum name on it.  I had a Timber Buyer Network hat on.  I figured that would help set me apart from the crowd.

Hillbilly didn't make it Friday, but Dugsaws did and we chatted for about an hour or so.  

Shirts would be the next step or a hat with a propellor on top.   :D    Better luck next time, I guess.
