Cool Indianapolis Chapter Meeting Review

Another successful meeting is now history. With 58 enthusiastic penturners showing up to share and to learn it was a great time. Thanks to Ernie for his wood dyeing demo and associated CA finish. There were lots of very nice pens on display and the pen swap had several participants. Thanks to everyone for participating in our group discussions. We have lots of ideas for the next meeting this fall. Special thanks to Wood Turningz and Ernie for the door prizes. Also thanks to Indy-Pen-Dance for showing up with tons of new products. Thanks to Bill and Dan for help in the preparation and everyone who helped cleanup. Thanks to Dave for the photos that will be showing up here shortly. Thanks to everyone who brought food and drink for meal. We had lots of new faces at our meeting today and I hope they enjoyed what they saw. I'm looking for a 100 in the fall!
Did I thank everyone? I hope so. If not forgive me it wasn't intentional!
Ron in Indy

Yes Ron ... you forgot to thank yourself. Without your leadership this group wouldn't be what it is right now. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Also a special thanks to the members of the church where we meet for allowing us to use an absolutely wonderful facility for our meetings.

I thought we had more folks there today - one of the members counted and thought there were 66 - maybe a couple were counted twice or maybe some people left ??

We at Indy-Pen-Dance want to thank everyone that came today - we enjoyed seeing everyone and we especially want to thank those who took the time to stop by our tables and say "Hey" or make a purchase. Today (as the last couple of meetings) it's been very busy and we really do like to get a chance to chat with everyone. We appreciate Everyone in the Indy Chapter - this is a GREAT GROUP of turners!

Until the next time,

Linda & Mike

I want to add just a bit to Linda's comments....

Thank you to all our hard core members. These are the folks that drive a couple hours one way to attend. Ernie, Todd and Randy to just name a few. I know we have had people from Ft. Wayne as well attend. So Chuck if you are reading this, you could become our most hard core members! Well next to Todd - riding in the caddy listening to banjo music for two two hours is pretty scary in it's own right.

Thanks to Dave for lugging around his camera and taking photos. I know it can be hard to visit with folks when you are trying to get a part of everything on film.

Thanks to our Chef and all of the wonderful food that people brought.

Mike/Linda, there probably were more there than 58. Not everyone signs in and with everyone moving around it is hard to get an accurate account. I agree 100% we do have some hard core members. Lots of dedicated talented turners in our area.

I sure am glad to hear it was another great meeting. You all have what it takes to put it together as a team. Too bad for me, I'm not there. MAYBE, we'll be there in October. Thanks friends, for keeping me in mind.

Well it was a great day. It seemed everything went very smooth. Bill, Ron, and Dan kept it going nicely. Was nice to see my old pals and lots of new faces. It's been a long day for me, but I sure had fun. Pretty hard to beat a day with friends followed by an afternoon and evening with the hottest woman on the planet.

And let the record show that I have a perfect record with the weather. Every meeting I come to I somehow encounter rain in your great state. Was nice and sunshiny here!!

I had a great time. A bit of a drive at 3 hours, but worth it. Nice to meet a few of you.

It was a great day yesterday, and for me it is a profitable day today. Enjoyed the good food conversation with all you big-time pros! A lot of fun indeed.

Here's what I have been doing:

Bill, Ron...Thanks for allowing Ernie and me to participate.
