Will this be strictly forging or will there be stock removal too?

How close is this to Atlanta?

Thanks!

We're strictly addicted to being there. You can grind if you just hav ta, but the fun is being able to do what you mom wouldn't let you do when you were little:
Play with fire, beat things with a hammer, run around with sharp pointy things, make lots of noise and get serious grimy........what's not to like?

'Bout 2 hours northeast of Atlanta (not far enough!)
Go to www.trackrock.com for the best directions as it is held on the campgrounds.

Hope you will try to make it.
And....welcome to the forums Rock!
