Just wanted too post something to start discussions if there is any interest. Note any apples or other fruit available. I will not be able to crust/press from Aug 16-23rd. If anyone would like to use the equipment I can make it available?

Amelia & I have always wanted to participate but have had conflicts. Let us know when.

The key to this adventure is to locate people who have apples e.g. Ask around and see if there are unattended trees.

Well just about abandoned the fest for this year when I got a very very good offer from a friend in New Jersey. See my posting in buy/sell/free

Just back from my New Jersey three-day adventure with the S&S trailer and my vehicle filled with about 2500# of apples - all prime FUJI.
We will crush and press Sat Oct 28 with leftovers for Sunday or for those who have conflicts? We will give John Dipple's new Apple shredder mechanism a thorough workout!
All interested persons are welcome as well.
If anyone has any one-gallon clean plastic bottles let me know."pm" me with questions or for directions.
Here is a list of those signed up in no particular order.
JW-2, JD-4, KP-2, SB-2, JM-2, JM-2, CG-3, JF/AF-2, JeDu-4, DD-4, MJ-2 plus mine
If anyone want to add their name to the list YOU MUST LET ME KNOW so I can check how many left over we have.
We should probably start relatively early and take people as they are available? Bring a chair. It is certainly OK to come and watch the process.

Awesome! I'll be there. How early are we talking?

with the amount of apples we have to process we should start at about 9AM?

I can't make it either day. Do I need to get you 10gal of containers for juice? Do you have a way to cool store it until I can pick up? Depending on time, I may be able to pick up Sun as we get back to town. I have a couple empty kegs. Maybe I can drop off Friday on way out of town.

The girls have cheerleading from 9-10 so I will be a little late. How late do you think we will be? We have a wedding at 5 in Henderson.
