ABANA Conference
Richmond, Kentucky - EKU Campus - Friday NIGHT Parties
Friday Night  after hours there were several events. A contingent of Irish smiths from Channon's Forge demonstrated shoe making at the Centaur Forge site. Uri Hofi held a special 10th aniversary demo for old friends and students. Among the notables in attendance was Bill Gichner. I ran into Toby Hickman (an anvilfire fan) and had a talk with him during the demo.
The Start  Uri says every demo must have a beginning and an end. He starts with an introduction.
The crowd  enclosed the intimate demo on three sides. Uri is starting a scroll. 90% of his demonstration was on the power hammer, the anvil used mostly for straightening and bending.
The Party continues as evening sets in. 
The demo's end  Uri announcing the end of the demo and making comments about the work.
