Announcing-- 13th Annual
WAGS Convention ------ All Aboard Ya'll!!!
The WAGS annual convention for 2015 will be held in Chattanooga, TN on Friday, October 2 through Monday, October 5, 2015.
All roads and rails lead to Chattanooga …..
NOTE: This is a change from our normal convention days (Friday – Sunday) in order to be able to tour the Lodge Facility on Monday while in production.
The cutoff date for guaranteed room rates is September 11, 2015.
Registration begins Friday afternoon, followed Saturday and Sunday with educational seminars, a swap meet, the annual business meeting, hospitality suite, and food, food, and more food. The convention will culminate with a tour of the newly renovated Lodge Manufacturing Facility, in South Pittsburg, TN, Monday, October 5th while in full production. (NOTE: WAGS toured the LODGE facility in 2005 and WOW it was a real treat for everyone, as they treated us EXTREMELY well.)
The amazing part of the manufacturing process at Lodge is it takes just 90 minutes from pour to boxed and ready to be shipped.
Details are being finalized and will be sent at a later date, along with a convention registration form.
Are there any Camp Dutch Oven cooks out there who are willing to show off their cooking skills?
WAGS conventions are a great place to renew old friendships, to make new friends, to put a face with that person you have been talking to on the phone or the internet, and most of all to get rid of some of your tired iron and to acquire some new iron you have been hunting for.
Some of the things to enjoy while in the Chattanooga area:
- Antiquing and Shopping
- Chattanooga Zoo
- Chattanooga Aquarium
- Ruby Falls
- Lookout Mountain
- Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park
- Moon Pie Museum (Chattanooga is the home of the Moon Pie)
- Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum
- River boat rides
- Rock City
- And many more adventures …
- There may even be some golf in there somewhere.
So, ya’ll come on down, now ya’ hea’ …….
Details for hotel registration and registration forms are available to WAGS members on the WAGS Forum.
REMEMBER: You must be a member of WAGS in advance of the convention in order to come to the convention. This is a hard and fast rule, as we must have head counts to the HOTEL in advance and also have logistics set for the LODGE tour. So if you even think that you may want to attend, get your application into WAGS ASAP.
Best regards, The WAGS Convention Committee
