    Ok its official April 26 will be the date and will be held at the hoskey farm. We will have heads up can't races, door prizes, and much much more.

    We are combining hedgefest and oakfest this year for one biggie this spring.

    Plenty of room for camping and motels within 20 min of the cut site.

    Please convo myself, Ronald, or hoskvarna with any questions.

    Closest town with food and fuel is my town of Belle Plaine 15 min away. The bp station in Belle Plaine is one of our gtg sponsors of 2 years now. They are the local stihl dealer and too.

    Closest bar is Chelsea 5 min away.

    Closest motel restaurant shopping center is Tama- Toledo 20 min away.

    For the wives...... Tanger outlet mall is in Williamsburg 45 min away.

    Iowa City is right at an hour away.

    Marshalltown is 45 min as well in the opposite direction.

    1. I'm in for sure on staying overnight. No need for a generator in the tent cot though.

    Sometimes living in Ohio and not further west sucks. This time is one of them. Sounds like a hoot.

    My steady gig of a job that that I could plan time off of ifs now over, but I'll be there if I can. It would take a lot for me to miss it.

    Glad you gave us the date early.

    Central Iowa north of I 80.

    We eat, BS, swap saws n parts, eat more, race saws, eat, settle grudge matches, eat more, meet some saw builders and run their work, eat more yet.

    Its all in all a good time and you will meet some of the coolest people in the world.

    On the list of places to stay, Waterloo is roughly 40 minutes north for those coming from the cold. Dike is about 60 miles away for anyone that wants to see a bunch of old McCulloch saws coming or going.

    I will do my best to have a healthy kart saw for this one, along with the usual stuff. I am not sure I will have the BP-399T hooked up to anything but perhaps I can rig a more sophisticated fuel tank to make sure the demo run does not end unexpectedly...
