Default MEETING - March 20, 2016

MARK THIS ONE DOWN BOYS AND GIRLS

At the last meeting we were informed that Woodcraft is changing their display and needs some pens to show. We were also informed that there were 6 lathes that we can use. So pack your tools, bring the things you think you need, and show up on March 20, 2016.

WE will be turning from 11am till 3 pm. People will be coming through the class room watching US. We can watch eachother as we turn for the fun of turning. Making pens. And if you forget somethiing I am willing to bet there is a whole store we can buy to keep going.


Thinking out loud........ Social hour / set up starting at 10 am. Someone gets hungry? Food run to White Castle or Arby's.

INSTEAD OF A BLANK SWAP.......... make a pen, and we will drop them into a hat.
You can pick out as many as you put in. I will have the hat and starting pens.

This is really going to be an all day demo of what we can do. Not only showing off our skills but showing off the friendship of the IAP.

Any ideas for the day ???? Lets talk about them here. Membership drive?
Promote the IAP....AAW....Woodcraft. Is someone close to the AAW headquarters that they could get some handouts?

This is a first time and I am willing to bet if it works well......we can do this again in the future.

Who has the cookies this time? Everyone......Safe Turning.

It's 37 degrees colder where I am today than where I was yesterday.

If I understand, we're going to be turning pens for Woodcraft to use in their display, correct? They will supply the material and components, but we bring our own tools?

One of the PITHs will be made from the blank we selected during the Feb. meeting, right?

Looking forward to the March Meeting.

Brian

Brian,
You are correct about the PITH and hopefully, the blank you got wil work for you.
It doesn't have to be that blank.......But at least bring that back to show.

I guess that Woodcraft doesn't need us to make pens for them......I guess Jeff was joking. Woodcraft will rent us a lathe for the day @$15 .... Per Lathe
I have reserved one through Ed and will be there early like last month. Contact Ed if you want to have a lathe.

I will be turning pens. Showing the public and visiting with everyone.
I will also talk about my trip and share what happened along the way.
Tonight, Chuck, Mark, Ernie, and I are having supper after a wonderful day together.

I have learned a few things here in Indy. Seem the IAP collection. Have gotten to know some really nice people.
Looking forward now to next week in GA. (I will be calling you Warren) T-shirt weather here........Lovin' it!

I'll contact Ed and have him reserve a second lathe. No sense in letting you have all of the fun.

I've got Wayne and Brian so far. I'm not sure if we will have to confirm our numbers before the meeting, or if we can pay for the number of lathes we use at the meeting.

Also, I spoke with Jeff tonight at Woodcraft. It seems they have a drawer full of kits and blanks that are to be the display units, and have had them set aside for a whole, but the store has been too busy to allow anyone to make some "in the quiet times". Still up in the air if we will make anything for the store, but we will be making pens on the 20th.

Confirmed:

- We can pay for lathes used after the meeting (but still the day of the meeting).

- There are a total of six lathes available. Two have been spoken for, so there are still several available to be claimed.

- Officially, we will have access to them from 10:30 to 3:30. We were planning to start cleaning up at 3:00, so the end time isn't an issue. I suspect they won't mind if we are there at 10:00 and start talking or shopping.

See everyone on the 19th.

Ed

The date I am looking at is Sunday March 20th.

If this isn't correct or plans have been changed .... someone send me a PM. PLEASE!

Otherwise I will be there on Sunday.
Wayne
