In 2009 , the SRCA annual conference was held in conjunction with the Preservation Trades Network and the Timberframer's Guild. The SRCA had agreed to install a slate roof on a timber-frame white oak picnic shelter that was erected in River View Park in Frankfort, the state capital. The finished roof is pictured below, with Liam Tower of Slate Affair, Inc. The slates were donated by Buckingham Slate Company, LLC.
