WIACLOGO_BI am pleased to announce that we’ve signed the site contract for Woodworking in America 2015. The dates? Sept. 25-27. The place? Let’s have a little fun with that for a few days.

• The city has a major league baseball team.
• It is the most populous city in the state.
• There are many municipal fountains.
• The state flag is predominantly red, white and blue.
• The city is located on a navigable river.
• There are a fair number of corporate headquarters for well-known companies.

More hints tomorrow; I’ll reveal the city…soon.

    Megan, Megan, Megan
    You know you are making me hope a plane right? Portland is such a nice city too.. oh well, for this show I will set aside the fear of flying and make my way to the WIA show. This Old Workshop in the houssseee!!! really looking forward to it. Kansas city sounds like a nice place but I have not been to Missouri since the army so many years ago and it was winter at about -18 degrees (that’s a minus not a dash). We’re keeping an eye out for the “official” word then we can announce the heck out of it. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

    I’m going with Chattanooga or Nashville.

    Ok, Megan… I will agree w/the skyline, it shows in the post site as Kansas City, Missouri. Definitely NOT Kansas City, Kansas since the state flag is solid blue with farmer and plow in the seal. But, KC, Missouri’s population is a little more than half of St. Louis’s,………… Hey “Cards”!

  • John Cashman

    11 states have flags that are predominantly red, white and blue. 6 of those 11 do not have major league baseball teams.
    That leaves Colorado, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio and Texas. The most populous city in Ohio is Columbus, which does not have an MLB team.
    That leaves Denver, Atlanta, Kansas City, and Houston. They are the most populous cities in their state, have MLB teams, and have states with predominantly red white and blue flags.
    I leave the rest for you guys.

  • garpet

    Oh, yes, and don’t forget the St. Louis Cardinals!!!……………

  • garpet

    Ok , It’s a strong possibility that it will be St Louis, Missouri. St Louis pop. is 933,548, Kansas City, 566,037. The Missouri River runs from the N.W. through K.C. to the East all the way across W. St. L. meeting The Mississippi River then the longest river in U.S. runs south to the Gulf. The State Flag looks like the French Flag with the same origins of fountains. The center seal has 2 bears on either side of it raised up on their hind legs touching it. There are many fountains: Fountains on Locust (restaurant), precision fountains, Fountain Park, Milles Fountain, Garden Fountains, Forest Park &Zoo, Sculptural Fountains, Missouri Botanical Gardens, and St. Ambrose (meeting of the water fountains) at Union Station; among probably others. NO, I’m not or never have lived there……. What say you Megan???

  • Curtis Smith

    Has to be Kansas City. It meets all the hints. Bout Time

  • RunningBear

    Cleveland, Ohio! We have a beautiful new convention center.

  • Kyle Barton

    Also, Cincy is out unless they change the venue. The WIAs held there were actually across the river in Covington, Kentucky.

  • AMarshall

    I’m going with St. Louis. All this trickery just to reveal it as Cinci in the end would be rotten!

  • pmac

    Meet me in St. Louis.

  • nstahlmann

    Will 360 woodworking be there?

  • woodbridge

    I’m going with Kansas City as well.

  • jason.weaver

    Yes! Kansas City is the City of Fountains with the best MLB team (despite last night’s performance). We also have a mighty fine river, and the Missouri state flag is about as red, white and blue as you can get without removing the seal — but that would make us part of the Netherlands.

  • davewho

    Cincinnati, OH. That is all. (mike drop)

  • Frank Vucolo

    I’m guessing Houston… Seems to fit all the criteria.

  • mikema

    I was going to guess back at Cincy, but it isn’t the state’s most populated City.

  • Matt_Rob

    Lets see, do they have their own style of bbq sauce, a guy named Fats cut a record about it?

  • ahae5d

    St. Louis Missouri?
