Hand Raising Date Set

After completing a busy spring with a variety of trusses we have begun working on the frame we hoped to feature for a the spring hand raising. So now it is the an early summer raising but a hand raising nonetheless. The rasing date is June 23rd and starts around 9. Following a short safety and planning meeting with all the attendees we will get right into it and raise the first bent. As of now the plan on how to exactly raise the frame will depend on the number of participants so if you plan to attend please let us know on the event page. Signing up there will also allow you to be notified of any developing details (cancelation due to weather, change of times, etc.) Coincidentally the rain date will be the following saturday, June 30th.
