Me neither - heading into the Home Stretch of prepping this place for putting on the market.

Q: Any preliminary plans for BEOTS '13?

Hey Awesome - I'm confused. Which Graemlin goes with which name? :question: Wouldn't this one fit in somehow? :stooges: or was that last year's NEAF when you couldn't join us?

I have no idea what's going to happen this year Unc. We're working on scheduling some jobs from TN to out New Mexico way. It's all going to fall around one fella who's getting a fully automated 16x24 and he's closing on his property in a couple weeks. Then there could be 3 jobs or 6 so I can't even guess at this point. :shrug:

Thanks! My sked is also essentially chaos at this point.

Let me know if/when you'll be doing the work at DAV and will need the trailer.

Scotty, Well at least you guys will be generating some badly needed revenue this year. Lord knows, business had to have been really slow at times over the last few years.

You may well have a local customer soon too. Might be a guy from North Royalton interested in what you could build for him too!
