Default November MN IAP meeting

The first meeting of the season will be Saturday Nov 12.

As part or Turn-A-Palooza, the IAP will be meeting at 3:00 PM at Woodcraft in Bloomington. The meeting will be a presentation on the IAP Collection by curator Mark James from OH. Please plan to attend this very special meeting of the MN IAP chapter.

Turn-A-Palooza is an all-day event at Woodcraft, with pen and other turning activities demonstrated throughout the day.

I hope to see everyone there!

I am thinking Saturday after the Woodcraft show.......we might just do supper in the Twin cities Mark.
That way if the members would like to visit more or ask questions....we can do so.
Sunday is going to be our fun day Mark. I got the whole day planned with options built in for last minute local ideas. (Bring your camera) Going to give you a little tour.

I am so looking forward to this.

Mark,

Yes, if you would bring the materials for the demo, that would be great. What would you need for equipment at the demo? Lathe? Anything else?

I'll plan to be at Woodcraft at opening on Saturday to help with any setup you might need to do. Actually, I'll probably stop at the store on Friday evening to get things set up. Approximately how big of a counter-top would you like for the display during the day?

I'll also check with the nearby Davani's Pizza and Hoagies to see if their meeting room would be available Saturday evening.

Looking forward to a great, fun time,
Ed

As for the IAP Collection Display: A 6 foot long area would be perfect, I can make do with less, but it's tight, and I can certainly spread out if it's more.

I won't be doing any turning, so for the demo, just a table. I'll have handouts and all the pieces for the process to make the blanks. The demo should not take more than 30-45 minutes with questions - it's pretty straight-forward.

Thanks for your help.

I am planning to be there and will probably have my nearly 4 year old son with me. I don't know how long we'll be staying - depends on how well he behaves and how quickly my wife is itching to get back on the road to head home - especially since I do have to be up early on Sunday morning and we'll also have an 8 month old along.

I am very much looking forward to this! I've met Wayne a couple times and Brian briefly and am looking forward to finally meeting some others.

Regrettably, I won't be attending. I have a 4 year-old granddaughter's birthday party to attend out of town. I like you guys well enough, but granddaughter birthday parties take precedent.

For after the meeting, I have reserved the party room at the Davanni's at 86th and Lyndale (just six blocks north of Woodcraft). Time starts at 5:30, but I suspect there is some flex room there, if we get done at Woodcraft early. There is no charge for the room, but they do ask that we buy our food there and not bring our own in.

Brian, sorry you will miss this. Fully understand that family comes first, though. Have a great time at the BD party.
