Long Island Metal Workers

2008 Film Fest

Some how a while back I got on the mail list for this group.  They are lead by Jamie Swan and from the emails I get seem to do a lot of interesting visits to various manufacturing and educational facilities. 

When I read that they were having a film fest with day long showings of metal working related DVDs and video tapes.  Since it was only three hours from Preston my wife and I loaded the boys and the cameras in the car and headed to the wilds of Long Island NY.  Departing at 6:00 AM we cruised down I95, across the Throgs Neck bridge and out I495 to Brookhaven.  Using the GPS gadget we found the location without problem.  

The event was held at a community meeting hall.  Located on a former land fill the place has extensive walking trails,  meeting rooms, a small zoo and extensive greenhouse buildings.  Pretty neat.
