Hi, neighbor (looks like you're in WI). Don't wait that long :wink: Our next convention will be at the Detroit/Dearborn Doubletree Hotel the last weekend in September 2023. Hope to see you there

Thanks neighbor.  Yes i am in Wisconsin.  I use to be a member.  But life changes and I am afraid that most that know me, won't welcome me. Don't even think I would get membership approved.  So I enjoy life as best as I can.

Thanks.

What a great time in Dayton! Thanks to all our participants, chefs for the cookout on Thursday, presenters on Friday and purveyors of iron for the Favorites Displays and Swap Meet on Saturday. There were 4 first time attendees this year.

Friday's line up of presentations...
Patterns and Molds by Dwayne Henson
Hammered Cast Iron Cookware by Randy Eckstein
Camp Oven Cooking by Roger Barfield
Show and Tell and Stump the Experts with Greg Stahl and Roger Barfield
Hearth Utensils by Scott Price

On Saturday there were 18 tables of iron with a number of hard to find and beautiful pieces in the Swap Meet
For the Favorites displays JR and Diana Doffin were voted 1st Place with their display of unique pieces with Jeff Friend's gem pans and Roger Barfield's toys and miniatures commanding 2nd and 3rd.

Three members were bestowed Lifetime Memberships in WAGS, Sandy Glenn and Jim and Diana Hickling, well deserved by all 3 for their dedication and involvement with WAGS.

Camp Oven Chefs were recognized with personalized WAGS aprons and a camp oven badge for each year they have participated.
Probably 30 door prizes and 6 raffle prizes that included some cast iron pieces, certificates for a free night's stay and a Dayton themed gift basket.

Hospitality suite each night abounded with great information, war stories and just getting to know each other better. Staff at the Radisson Dayton made for a smooth, fun weekend.

Clear your schedule next year for the last weekend in September and get yourself to a WAGS Convention and stop missing out!

Lynne and I had a great time at the convention.  Nice to see all again, both long time members and new members.  Still working my way home.  I'll try to post some pictures when I get home.  Thanks again to all who put in so much work to make 2022 a successful convention.
