Very Important Information on the 2012 ABANA Conference Gallery

you will have to make arrangements for your package to be picked up on Sunday

Sunday. ABANA only has pickup and delivery arrangements with FedEx.

For those bringing their work with them: Please submit your gallery
application prior to the start of the conference. This way all the information will
be entered into our computers prior to the starting of the conference and we can
spend our time setting up the gallery to show your work.

For those still sitting on the fence: Ladies and Gentlemen this is your
conference. What other opportunity are you going to have to show your work to
such a crowd of very appreciative blacksmiths. Just down load the application
from the ABANA website and email it to georgematthews@abana.org.
