Default Feb. 14, 2016.......MN Chapter meeting

I was in the Twin Cities on business today and had a few minutes ..... so I stopped into Woodcraft and spoke to Tim, Jay and Chris.
As long as they had no plans for that Sunday......I went ahead and booked the class room for a meeting that day. Why you may ask?!?
Well, here is the reason.

A well known pen turner will be in town that weekend. Ed Brown of Exotic Blanks has agreed to come and do several demos in MN. We all know Mr. Brown as a supporter of the IAP. He is also known for his "history of pen turning" and other demos on Utube.

He will be in the St. Cloud area on Saturday Feb. 13th giving 2 demos for the local turning club. The morning one will be for the general membership with a more personal demo in the afternoon. More details will follow. The Sunday, he is willing to do a demo at the Woodcraft of Minnesota store before flying back home. These demos are not to be missed as the members here all know how much knowledge and hands-on skill this gentleman has. He will be here to answer questions about materials/skills/products etc. Make plans to save the day for this event.

I will be posting more as the information gets to me.

I won't be able to make it to Woodcraft on the 14th, but I'll definitely try for St. Cloud on the 13th! (Provided our son doesn't decide to be born a month early and the weather allows for it!)

Weather shouldn't be a problem, Wayne said I should bring a couple light sweaters, prepared for about 60 degrees, possibly a little overcast. Nice driving weather

Might be a little over-dressed don't you think?

Wayne,

Great news!

Ed,

Looking forward to the weekend.

Wayne did tell you the light sweaters were for inside, right? :-)

Ed

Shorts, t-shirts and flip flops are all you'll need...

I can only pray that you clowns are right and that "Minnesota Nice" is in full bloom.

That might work if we hold the meeting at the Waterpark of America.

February 14, huh. Well, that gives us plenty of time to think of excuses for going to Woodcraft on Valentine's day. "But honey, you don't understand, THE ED BROWN is in town!"

Default Invitations?

Do I need a specific invitation to join you on the Feb 14? I am one of two people in the Fargo area that specializes in pens. Most everyone in my AAW club are bowl turners.

Can I join your chapter?

Geffre.......All you need to do is show up.
But I can tell you right now it is a 4 hour drive for you.

You will be more then welcomed at St. Cloud on the 13th or at Woodcraft in Bloomington on the 14th.
Let me know what you would like to do and I will help you with any information.
