Plant Tour

Has anybody taken a Plant Tour at Montana lately? Any tips? We will be there in late Sept.

Take the camera. You will get a education on how these things are built. Get a tour every year ate the Fall Rally.

The fall rally is in late September, you get a plant tour that is super special.

It alone makes the fall rally worth while. Before you start drilling and screwing it's good to know how things were routed.

Was there couple years ago. I fail to see how they can produce the numbers they do in that building. Yeah, it's big, but... It is an eye-opener and worth the time. John

They let you take pics? Nobody else does.

We enjoyed and learned quite a bit. Wish it had been scheduled during actual production rather than a static display tour.

The work day is over when we take the tour. MOC'ers are the only ones there/Pictures are fine. The other plants will do their tours during working hours and the Amish do no like their pictures taken.

There may be some things, particularly prototype rigs that you can't take pictures of, but they'll tell you if somethings off limits and you'll still get to see it.
