Offcuts from the Board
As woodturners, we do not have much scrap, just smaller pieces that can be used together to make something larger in combination with other bits and pieces. That's what this little section attempts to produce. By adding the small parts of our activities and plans we have a combined bigger picture of opportunities to take part in within the club.
- This month’s Open Shop is truly "open" to anything anyone desires to bring and work on. Bring your tools and project material and make something happen.
- The program for this month’s meeting will consist of having our annual Creativity Contest. We will display and share our creations and see who is the luck winner of the Carter & Sons spindle gouge.
- You have a chance to win an airbursh by purchasing a ticket for $2 each for the "special raffle". The funds raised will go into the equipment fund. We will do the drawing after we collect $100 dollars in ticket sales.
- There are many ways you can contribute to the life of our club. A couple simple ways are to submit your answers to the "5 Woodturning Question" article. (See the article below for more details). Another similar way is to submit your woodturning tips also for the newsletter. (Refer to the article later.) Of course there are many other ways to put your enthusiasm into action. You can ask any officer for direction. There are many practical ways to be involved. A simple way to help is to come early to the meeting and help set up the room for the meeting and/or stay afterwards and help clean up. Either or both are appreciated.
Keep turning safely and we’ll see you at the meeting.
