    This will be the first time in ten years I'll be missing the haybale party since it's on a Saturday for the first time ever(closing my shop down to sling some haybales is not an option) , instead of a sunday.

    Wow!!!

    I don't normaly complain but: WOW!! worst hay bale party ever!!! I just wanted to take a minute to thank the 6 people who came out and helped wrap hay bales today. It took us just over 4 hours to wrap all the bales due to the poor turn out and for 2 of us it was a 9 hour day as we went to the farm and picked up the bales as well. I sure hope we get more support through out the year for set up and tear down. Again my hats off to the people who came out today. :bow:

    Well, I was going to post up my apologies for being late to the party, but I think there are bigger problems with the turnout.

    I'm disappointed in the lack of novice turnout. Dean did mention it during the WCSS Tradex day...

    Thanks for helping guys! We were slowing down near the end but not one complaint. Great job, next year I will bring gloves and H2O for all. We were working too hard for coffee and donuts!

    You know I would have liked to have been there to witness the annual 'wrapping of Ken' but I already had a garage sale planned with the neighbours and it wouldn't have been fair to back out on them.

    Out of all the years we've been doing this, I think this was the worst turnout. We've been fortunate in previous years to get the response we did get. Without slinging mud at anyone, hopefully it won't be repeated.

    Hats off to those who did make it. :bow::bow::bow:

    I was out of town for the weekend so I couldn't make it.

    Big thank you to those that went.

    Just for Dean I will come out on Friday, set up my pits, and then sit there drinking beer while watching everyone set up.
