Our ride to the Case Knife Factory and the Zippo/Case Visitors Center in Bradford PA on June 17, 2010 was fun and a great success. Upon our arrival at Bradford we dined at the world famous Beefeaters Restaurant before
touring the Case Knife Factory. At the Case Knife Factory we were greeted by the CEO of Case/Zippo Greg Booth. Mr. Booth suprised the group by gifting each rider with a custom made Moose Riders 46 Zippo lighter which can be
seen above. Mr. Booth was bestowed an Honorary Moose Riders 46 Membership by President Matt Mahon and presented with an Official Moose Rider 46 T-Shirt and Beverage glass. Moose Riders 46 greatly appreciate Mr. Booth's hospitality and
Please enjoy the pictures below of our event.
The tour of the Case Knife Factory was quite educational. The tour took approximately 3 hours and followed the course of the whole production from raw materials to the beautiful finished products. All the employees of Case were very
helpfull in demonstrating their specific skills in the manufacturing process. We were even allowed to help assemble some of the knives. It was amazing to see just how much of the process was done by hand by these skilled craftsmen.
It's good to know that such quality manufacturing is still being done in the USA. Each Moose Rider was presented with a Case Knife Factory Tour Pin at the end of the tour. Many thanks to the Case Knife Staff, Employees and our Tour Guide
for a great time.
After the Tour we visited the Bradford Moose F. C. #124 for a evening of Pool, Shuffle Board, good food, good music and good conversation. New friendships were made and we hope to return to Bradford again in 2012 for our second
bi-annual Case/Zippo Ride. Come join us in 2012 for a great ride.
