Default Poll for Houston Area Sept. meeting in Alvin

Please only reply if you belong to the Houston Area or at least in Texas.

How many people would like to have a September Meeting? How many would show up? If nobody else around here wants to host I'm willing. Sept 10th looks good on my calendar from about 9 AM-2 PM. How about everyone else?

We can order some pizza for lunch so plan on pitching in about $5 for lunch.

If there is any requests for DEMOS please post on this thread.

Thumbs up

A no ONLY because I am having surgery on Sept 7th. Bummer!

Otherwise I would definitely be there.

Brenda, come on down and enjoy the meeting. I made the last one at Monty's. This was my first meeting to attend. Folks are friendly, the pizza was good. And definitely bring some of your work. It's nice to compare and get some critique. Others will have their's displayed. There is usually stuff for sale too. I know Ramon sells blanks and Monty has supplies like glue, boxes and blanks.

Should be another good time.

I'll be looking forward to the next meeting.

We usually do some demos depending on the requests. Yes, we also bring some of our pens to show and we talk about different things that some new pen turners might not be aware of like where to get the best deals, techniques.

I will also have my Carbon Fiber blanks for sale if you are interested.

A CA finish is demo is almost always a MUST-Have...Hell, Steve, I'm not sure I've ever seen your's!

If Clyde shows up, I'd love to see his technique as well...I missed the lasst one but have heard some really good things about it!

I've got Curtis' Cactus juice and I know Clyde does also. We could do a stabilization demo if anyone wants one.

I can do a PR casting demo.

I would like to see if somebody show me how to use a skew.

Please reply to this thread with any suggestions of the demos that you would like to see, since some people have put out some ideas.
