Default Meeting for Fall 2010

Anyone planning a meeting for the Fall of 2010?
I was out sick for the last one, so would like to make the next one if possible.

Yes , it has been on my mind ,for a while now.
And thanks to my better half my shop is clean, as of today, and the air is still working, so if I host one it needs to be pretty soon, while it is still clean!!!!
I looked on my calender and Oct 16th looks good to me ,for hosting the next meeting. What do you think???
Thats on a Saturday and would begin around 10am till.....
If anybody else wants to host please chime in.

At our last meeting no one offered to host the next one and my shop has been to hot to host one so I for one am glad to see somebody step up and offer to host. If Oct. 16 works for everybody else I will clear my calendar for that date. I will try to come up with a demo to do and we will need some more people to offer to share what they have learned. If this date works for you and-or you want to demo please post here or send a PM to Mac or me. More info will be posted as plans are put together.

As much as I would love to come to a fall meeting, gonna have to miss it. The wife is unusually 'pumped-up' about this upcoming bow season for whitetails!!

Was wondering if anyone ever does videos of some of the meetings and post them on YouTube? Some of us live pretty far away...long drive.



Scott (have fun guys) B

Scott, sorry you will be unable to attend. I don't think anyone in our group is computer savvy enough to video our meetings to post on You Tube, I know I'm not. Besides if the demos were being taped we would have a hard time getting any one to demo. The scariest thing I have ever had to do was a bullet pen demo in Oklahoma City where after I got there I found they were doing a dvd of it for their club library.

I have it down on the calendar for Oct. 16th, 10:00 am. Will plan to attend. I can do a demo if needed. I can do a CA finish or something else. What is the group interested in?

Also, is it appropriate to bring kits, wood to sell?
I bought the entire stock of a penmaker that died. His son wanted to sell it all, so we made a deal. I will have kits and blanks for costs based on group purchase rates. Over 200 various pen boxes, 300 + kits, 1,000 plus wood blanks, 100+ acrylics. Also a bunch of bushings.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

John, feel free to bring items to sell or trade. After seeing some of your work I look forward to seeing you do a demo. I hope everyone would post what kind of demo they would like to see so that the people doing the demos can plan what everyone wants to see.

Looks like I'm it.
Food is as always potluck.
I got the tea and silverware so far. Please post your food so we can add what we don't have.

Anybody that has door prizes please bring. I will have some also.
I will also set up a table(s) with stuff to sell or trade so bring your stuff.

Default Meeting Still ON?

Are we still having a meeting? Have not seen any activity on the post. Sure hope so! Betty and I plan to attend and we can bring drinks, food, etc.

I also plan to bring a bunch of stuff for sale. Kits, blanks, corian, etc.

I can do a demo on my CA finish if you want.
Can also do a demo on seam rippers! These are fast and easy, and sell at shows.

Should we start a new thread for attendance, what we will bring, etc. ??

YES YES YES
Most of our group is also in 2 AAW clubs around here and they don't post much, and the last meeting everything came together all at once.
I haven't decided what kind of meat to fix, and other half is going to fix something too.If you remember the last time we had a meeting at my house ,she was recovering from knee surgery, and I had to cook everything.
Also traderdon55 has sent or going to send out emails.
