The ABANA Conference
was held in LaCross, WI June 5th to June 8th this year and organized by the ABANA board rather than a volunteer Chapter.
The event, held on the campus of University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, was distributed across five pavilions, Japanese, European, International, American Traditional and The American Contemporary Pavilion.

This is the third ABANA conference covered in the anvilfire NEWS!
Our first was in Asheville, NC in 1998 were we and Grant Sarver of OffCenter products demonstrated our junk yard hammers. We covered the CanIronII conference in Calgary Canada in 1999 and our second ABANA conference in Flagstaff, AZ in 2000. At Flagstaff we attempted to bring live daily images and video from the conference but failed due to equipment failures and lack of money. For the current ABANA conference we had someone take photos for us. See the previous anvilfire NEWS for the details of why we did not attend this year.
