 Message from the Bad Axe Chapter President


Gary    Gary Rieniets - Bad Axe Chapter President



     I want to share with you information on the events we have planned for members of the Bad Axe Chapter for 2016. The first event will be a visit to the US Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) in Madison, Wisconsin beginning at 9:00 am on Friday April 8, 2016. The tour of the facility will be between 2 to 3 hours in length. I have toured the site before and find it to be one of the most interesting and informative tour that I have attended. The adress is 1 Gifford Pinchot Drive in Madison and for complete directions and more information on the tour check the last issue of the Members newsletter.

    The Annual meeting will be at Steve and Carol Stevenson's place on July 16,2016. As soon as the details planned for the day are complete we will get that information out to you. A visit to their property is a treat in itself so be sure you mark your calender for that Saturday in July.

    We will cap off the year with a combined all day event with the Oak Management Workshop on Saturday October 1, 2016. This is an event you do not want to miss. Again, as details become available they will be passed on to you.  

   Gary Rieniets
