I was thinking more of a chapter from hamilton area to london area..... Thanx for the info Mack...Perhaps if we had smaller chapters in a resonable driving distance there would be more interest and people would not have to drive 2 to 3 hours for meetings....just my thoughts..

You forgot the metropolis of Bothwell. I would be interested. To the best of my knowledge I have the only lathe in town.

Can you tell I don't get on here much? I play at penturners mostly but I'm still interested in this chapter. I like the idea of a smaller more localized group. (No offense Mack!) I just can't be driving 2-3 hours for a meeting unless it was a fairly large gathering once a year. A few smaller "sub"chapters with more frequent meetings with one large overall meeting would be cool! Just a though!

No offense taken, Tom! The other matter is seasonal I suppose.

Just as an aside, a group of woodworkers (turners, penturners) in my area meet the first Sunday of each month for breakfast. We meet at the same place each Sunday. There are a number of penturners around me. I put the invitation on Paradise and none of the penturners showed up. It is really difficult to organize things, and get people to show up!

I'd like to get there for one Mack, but it's that 2 - 3 hr drive and then the never ending stop and go trek across Toronto.
