Default March Meeting

Well guys
As fast as time is flying by it will soon be March. We should have a meeting in March, dont you think? Anyone willing to host the meeting. I am thinking we should invite our spouses as well. Maybe we all can pitch in and bring acovered dish. I would also like to open the floor for anyone wanting to volunteer to do a demo. Or if you would like to see something done, please let us know. I would like to suggest that we have it on a saturday. One thing I would like to see is a demo on is TOOL SHARPENING. I think it would be fun to do some pen blank swapping, what you think?

So feel free to jump in and share your ideas.

I'm in for a March meeting on Saturday. We can have it here on the farm unless someone else has a better place. I like the idea on demo, but I'm not the one to give it. Let me know.

I'm definitely up for a meeting. Carolina and I are not ready to host one right now, but we'd be happy to pitch in and co-host with Gary.

Sharpening sounds like a fine Demo, but we ought to see if we can get more than one viewpoint on the process (and the tools to perform it). I can bring my Tormek and some of the jigs. Maybe someone else can bring & demo their alternative?

A Saturday is a good day. If possible, let's try and avoid March 10, because the Redstone TAT is currently scheduled for the 11th. I think two back-to-back days of turning is great but I have a feeling not all of the 'significant others' agree with that sentiment.

Speaking of which, I agree with Keith. Bringing along the better halves worked great last time we were at the farm and I would suggest we continue the tradition, if Gary is OK with it. We sure got better food that way.

Ok, Guys,
I am looking at the calendar and we can either have the meeting on the 17th or 24th of March. So please let us know which one will be best for you.

Either day is good for me, St Patricks day is the 17th so not sure how many Irish are out there. Be sure to wear green that day.

Default Green is Good!

Either day works for me at the moment. Who knows what tomorrow brings?

I just saw an idea posted on another chapter for their meeting. It is a challenge to modify a pen kit and bring the pen to show at the meeting and be prepared to explain or demo how you made it. Sounds like fun! What you all think. I am thinking about using the slimline kit, there are several ways to modify it. Let me know your thoughts on it.
