Meeting May, 2018

Thirty-one members brought all kinds of ideas, questions, projects and enthusiasm to our May meeting. 

Time is ticking until our symposium in July so Deb and Paul energized the group with lots of discussion surrounding details that are in place and details that need support from our members.  We have 64 people signed up to attend the symposium at the present time. Lots of volunteers will be needed on Friday July 20th. at 2:00 to help with setting up.

Jon Downing from Great Western Saw (GWS) agreed to attend our meeting and update the group on lathes and turning items that are available in his store. There has been a recent upsurge in the sale of lathes and things related to turning so GWS will be expanding their turning inventory. Thanks Jon for sharing information about your store with us.

Show and Tell.
Ten members brought items for Show and Tell. Here is a pictorial essay of the event.
