Default Nov 22nd, 2015 Gathering

Last one for the year! Come one, come all, it time for some fun!

Since I haven't hosted in a while so let's do it at my place in Pleasanton. If you are new to the group shoot me a PM and I'll give you the address.

Loose agenda:
10am setup
11am start - chit chat and braggarts' table
noonish - lunch
after lunch - whatever we decide below.
4pm-ish or whenever - wrap up, clean up, and done.

Now, thoughts on what fun to have? Throw your ideas out here!

Let's do a gift exchange. Everyone who is coming will have their name put in a box and we will draw names for gifts. Bring something you made, something
that can be made into something. Not necessarily turned, but that would be nice.
It will be great to see everyone. Will your bronze bells be there? I would like to see them.

Great! November 22nd I can do!! Woohoo! I'll be there with my thing for the exchange.
Looking forward to seeing the bells too. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again. Always too long.

What's the menu?

And I can share the news about the new club I started in Santa Cruz area called the Santa Cruz Woodturners.

I will put the date on my calendar. That date looks good to me. Gift exchange sounds like a lot of fun and might motivate me to get out into the garage. I have a couple items from our last get-together that I will bring to the meeting so they can be repatriated to their owners.

I would vote for straight exchange. There is always room for trading and exchanging afterward. I find white elephant to be more appropriate when the gifts are nominal or "white elephant" type gifts. Just my thoughts about it.

I'm with Martin: just a simple exchange.
