Hugh Piggott windmill seminar 2004

Fun with Hugh Piggott and other great folks!

The Dans and myself had a grand time early this April spending a week and change at the SEI Home Built Wind Generator workshop seminar with Hugh Piggot on Guemes Island in Washington. Dan* went last year and had so much fun, they had to go back. I had the opportinity to tag along, and I'm glad I did. I took lots of pictures which are sorted by day. Some days have lots of pictures, and may take time to load... sorry about that.

Sunday was the first day we arrived on the island... the seminar hadn't started yet, and there is really no applicable content. Just some pictures of the location.

Monday folks got aquainted and got some idea about the week ahead.

Tuesday... work is getting done!

Saturday (crunch time) was the final day of the seminar, and there are lots of pictures...please be patient!

After Hours, usually starting at about 10 or 11PM we had lots of music and fun in cabin #6.
