Wisconsin Self Bow Jam
« on: February 27, 2019, 04:46:31 am »
Spring is, hopefully, just around the corner. With that, its time for the Wisconsin Self Bow Jam.

It is April 13 and 14 this year. You can set up Friday the 12th.

The event is at Ojibwa Bowhunters, New Berlin, WI.

Its a nice event coinciding with a big traditional shoot. There is a lot of emphasis on beginning bowyers.

Saturday night is a buffet.

Let's hope for better weather this year, we sure don't need 18 inches of snow in April again.

Looks like lots of room Kyle. I hope the weather is nice for you guys. April can be anything around here. Hoping to be planting sugarbeets by then but you never know.

There is plenty of room to work, that's for sure.  Camping depends on the weather. Last year was knee deep snow, mud and water.

Dang, I am booked that weekend!  I am hoping to make somebody's event this year and this is one of the closest.

I wouldn't mind teaching you badgers how to do it right, if I can get the time. That is the same weekend there is a big streamer fishing contest on the Au Sable in Grayling. I cant miss that.

JW - There is a bowjam in Montana again this year, that's gotta be as close as WI to you.

PD - Your wisdom would be welcome here on this shore of the big puddle. Plus, there's a lot of cheese and beer.

I love beer, I love cheese and I love bratwurst. Not much separates us except the water :)

Wow I'd love to come up there for that weekend.  I'll have to check out the logistics.

Dang, not enough lead time!  Haven't seen or heard anything about Montana, but that is a 2 day drive from here in Colorado!  On the other hand, most anywhere is a 2 day drive!

Be nice to see some new faces there. Its really geared towards teaching new people to make bows, but more experience would really make it great. There is plenty of room to work. Power is available under the shelter. There's a band saw on site.

What's the weather looking like Kyle. Artic sonic boom vortex.
Winds out of the North and off the big lake here today. Doesn't feel near as nice as it does in August.
