The Wolff Show is Getting Close

Wolff is now officially in countdown mode with just a few weeks to go before show time is here. So far they have had an incredible response! Over 100 people have signed up and more are calling every day. If you’d like to come, don’t wait too long to call. While Wolff doesn’t limit the number of attendees at their large shows, the Fire Marshal does. Once they hit a certain number they will need to start making a waiting list. So call today if you want to come!

Here’s a rundown of the schedule:
Friday, August 16th: Wolff will be hosting plant tours and a yard sale from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Saturday, August 17th: The showtimes will be from 8:45 AM until 5 PM. There will be seminars throughout the day and the vendor room will be open all day. In the morning there will be seminars on sharpening on the Hira-To® flat hone and clipper blade sharpening. In the afternoon there will be seminars on clipper repair and the manufacturing of scissors.

Sunday, August 18th: The show hours will be from 8:45 AM until 3 PM with an 8 AM worship service. The vendor room will be open all day. In the morning there will be seminars on marketing/sales and how to properly work the hone line on hollow ground shears. In the afternoon there will be a seminar on the Ookami Gold® and Twice as Sharp®.

As stated above, the vendor room will be open during the entire show, so if you have questions or if there is a seminar you’re not interested in, there will still be plenty to do. Also, if you have specific sharpening questions, Wolff will be setting up at a sharpening demonstration table for the entire show as well. They will have all their machines out and will be ready to answer any questions you may have.

So you still have a chance to win a great thank you prize!
