BIOJOE says:
"8am till 6 PM
Food : My Brothers BBQ will be the lunch item. Please bring any complimentary sides you'd like to share.
Biodiesel $3k per gallon on the b100 available and the $3.65 for B20 with Biocide and antioxidant added. We call it the "BioPro" blend.
I'll spray Side lot for mosquitoes again this year.
There's a car lift inside the plant and plenty of room to work on cars on the concrete as well as in the shaded grass areas beside the plant.
Pop Up Tents and bag chairs are always welcome.
Rental water cooled Swamp Fans will help contend with heat in and around plant.
A/C inside and 2 bath rooms with changing room.
Gas station next door if you need extra drinks and snacks.
I will be giving several tours during the day. We have retooled the entire Biodiesel plant to add methanol recovery and have eliminated water washing to purify fuel and now purify via Centrifuge! We have added over 20,000 gallons of process tanks, covered work area and filtration, as well as a new waste oil boiler that uses anything from motor oil to veggie oil to heat the plant.
Please bring any used motor oil or cooking oil you can!!! $.75 off per gallon donated. We've had people bring 100's of gallons in the past and paid for others discounts per gallon on biodiesel.
Shirts, Hats, sweatshirts for sale and Free Coozies I just had made to anyone that comes.
BYOFC - Bring Your Own Fuel Cans or I'll have some used totes and car boys you can use for temporary transport for free if you want.
Email biojoe@midlandsBiofuels.com or call 803-718-4727 if u need anything."

Looking forward to it!

Awesome, I'll be there for any of those dates.
I'll be attending this event, but there will not be any Malone Tunes, Mark will be in Asia for a wedding.

Alright! Road trip...see you there, June 14th. Will have just passed the 100,000 mark and will be looking to tap into the wealth of knowledge attending these events. Fun just to see what shows up! :cool:

Thanks, Bio Joe!

Looking forward to coming out again this year! July works better for me due to our Farmers Market schedule as well as giving me more time to work things out with my day job. Just lemme know when you know and I'll try to make it happen. Thanks!

I'll give you one guess what i chose for the vittles.;)

July 12th, to be precise. Robert T and I are going to Polyface Farms in Virginia on the 19th, so that one won't work.

If BioJoe posts that the date is officially July 12th, I will edit the thread title to reflect that change.

Yeah, we went there about 4 years ago for the Lunatic Tour. This one is the Field Day that they throw every 3 years. It'll be our 1st time. It's like my trip to the Holy Land, especially since he's the one that inspired me to start a farm.

Do we have a confirmed date ?

Hopefully June, July seems to be a conflict for some.
Losing Mark would be a bummer.

I need a date to edit the thread title, please. One of the dates proposed is only two weeks away. :)

July in a parking lot is going to be hot.
Are we sure this is the better date ?

Yes this date is best. Chosen based on responses to this thread.

If a lot of people said they could come this month we would have done it then.

Like every year we do it, It's gonna be perfect!

I'll be there bright and early. If anyone wants anything from the farm, lemme know and I'll be happy to bring it. Filiwestfarms@yahoo.com. I'm sure I'll be bringing some goodies to pitch I one way or the other. See you there!:)

Wouldn't miss it! We plan to be there too once again. It bears repeating -- although BioJoe will spray the lot next door for mosquitoes, bring 'Off' or something similar to ward off the tough guy insects that remain.

We would like to attend but not sure the 05 will be ready for road testing(doing a 5-speed swap). 500miles one way might be a nice test :)
I got aprox 250gal of Wvo but no way to haul it. Anyone have a mk4 trailer hitch for sale? :)
