    As many of you know, the trade association I work for, the Northeastern Loggers' Association, puts on forest industry trade shows around the Northeast. Last weekend we had a show in Watkins Glen, NY, which was pretty well attended despite the weather. We had an Econoburn, a few Atmos boilers, an EKO and a Central Classic on display, plus some Taylors and other OWBs.

    May 1-2, we're having an even bigger show in Bangor, Maine. So far, we have the following gasification rigs lined up for display (in addition to a whole mess of skidders, whole tree processors, firewood splitters and processors, chain saws & accessories, etc. etc.):

    Econoburn
    EKO
    Atmos
    Garn
    Central Classic
    Wood Gun

    And probably a few others that I'm forgetting.

    You can get into the show free of charge if you sign up online before Friday, April 17. Here's the link:

    Hope to see many of you there!

    Seems odd you wouldn't have Tarm, what with Revision Energy selling them about a half hour down the road.

    might not know about it. Also I think there is a Garn dealer not far from there. I think he did the common ground fair last season. I'll see if I can find the name. Seems like I got it from Garns website.

    Seems odd to me, too, considering all their competitors are going to be there.

    I wish I would have known about the show in Watkins Glen. Would have liked to meet some fellow gasifiers. Jeesh, that sounds kind of disgusting! My bad...

    Eric, I am moving and I have one brand new 90K Green Horizon Boiler left to sell. Would it be possible to show this one unit? By the way these units are now UL/CSA approved... I am also calling the manufacturer to see if he is interested in a booth...

    Hi, is this event just for people who work in the forestry/heating industry? From the sign up form it sounds like it... My company I work for isnt in forestry and has no relivenace...

    Id like to go and learn more about gassifiers and meet some other forum members.

    There are no restrictions on who can come, other than you have to pre-register by April 17 (free) or pay $7 at the door. Most people not involved in the forest products industry won't do either, but you're free to come, especially if you have an interest in one of the products on display. Just leave the job/industry categories blank or choose "other."

    I took my 8 year old daughter to the Watkins Glen show. It was a nice way to see the different boilers side by side and my daughter got a kick out of the big firewood processor.

    We're signed up, probably be there on Saturday, if other forum members are going and you dont use your name on the forum could you put your forum ID on your name tag? Would be nice to meet a few of the folks that have helped us get our wood boiler going.

    Only when you ANALize it. We gassers are a peculiar sort as we try to convince others it's the only way to go. We even show pictures of the whole process and discuss ways for innovative tweaking of the primary and secondary gasses. If that's not enough we dare ask and compare on how long of duration and how hot we can get our gas and even ask about nozzle comparisons. We even computerize for control and analysis so we can encourage others to follow our examples. The part that rips me though is when we go into confession about whether we have forced draft or inductive blowers with the inquisitive on-looker and never feel sorry for the guy. You see Huskurdu? That wasn't so bad! Was it? lol

    Just ask for me around the registration area in the Auditorium and if I'm around, somebody will point me out. That's typically where I hang out.
