2017 International Windmiller's Trade Fair: Day Three

June 15 | 2017

Our third day here in Indiana started out a little rainy, but things cleared up and the sun came out strong for another beautiful day at the Trade Fair. We fielded more questions and welcomed more positive interest about the 2019 IWTF in Nebraska City throughout the morning. In the early afternoon, many attendees traveled to the Flint & Walling factory in Kendallville for a tour of their facility. Flint & Walling has been an industrial institution in Kendallville for 151 years, producing a wide variety of windmills in their earlier years and now specializing in various types of booster pumps, centrifugal pumps, and jet pumps. After everyone had returned from the factory tour, we were treated to a great presentation by Kevin Moore, from Cloverdale, CA, about the windmills of Northern California (The Land of Fruits & Nuts)! They really had their own distinctive designs that were well-suited to their region and climate.

Our day at the Trade Fair finished off with a Hog Roast outside on the grounds of the Mid America Windmill Museum. The pork was great! So were the great people and conversation! We will be back at Mid America Windmill Museum bright and early tomorrow for the final day of the 2017 IWTF. Stay tuned!
