West Virginia Armour-In Parkersburg, WV, May 13-16 was hosted again by Ted and Ann Banning. This year's event was about the same in attendence as last. Again it was a very nice intimate affair where everyone got to meet each other and learn from each other.
Among the 24 or so attendees were master armourer Allen Bauldree, Mark Berry AKA "Clang" Clang's Armoury and Peter Buchanan, metal artist from Bedford, VA.
It was announced that next year's event will need to be sonsored by someone else in the group. The next Armour-In may end up in Kentucky. Watch for announcements.
