He is a top bloke with impeccable credentials and knowledge, pay attention and enjoy the course, hopefully it won’t be pissing down.

I only met him once but used to correspond and seems a great bloke.

I could be wrong ( its such a long time ago )  but I think the 15" bar is the smaller tree course .  70cc on a 20 or 24" comers to mind .

Nope. Big tree course will be 15" as cos yr demonstrating poking yr hinge out an yr cuts are more accurate with smaller saw. ( plus you dont get puffed out by end of day ! ) K
