Arrangements have been made for a Spring meeting! It is scheduled for Saturday, April 28 at the Spirit Mountain Casino/Hotel in Grand Ronde, Oregon, followed by a tour of the kilns (and new control equipment) at Hampton Lumber in Willamina.
Join us for coffee and donuts at 8:00am. The tech session will start at 9:00am. Scheduled speakers include Nate Turner from NLine Energy to talk about inline steam turbines for power generation, and a representative from Energy 350 will discuss opportunities for energy-savings projects subsidized by the Energy Trust of Oregon. Also, Harry Estlow of Interfor will moderate an open discussion about a variety of dry kiln topics. Bring your questions; get input from a room full of experience!
If you plan to arrive Friday, you should contact the Casino/Hotel to make room reservations at 503-879-2350. Depending on the number of Friday arrivals, we may arrange to have a hospitality room Friday night. When you arrive, check with the front desk to see where our group is congregating. The hotel address is 27100 Salmon River Highway, Grand Ronde, OR 97347.
