Default Fall/Winter Meeting

Our confirmed schedule is:
1. October 22, 2017 (Location: 17999 Red Oaks Dr. Macomb Twp., MI 48044 - Ron's house)
2. April 22, 2018 (Location: To be determined, we are open for anyone who wishes to volunteer their Shop/Studio.)

Time:
• 1:30 - Pre-Meeting Tutorial for New Pen Turners
• 2:00 start time for the meeting
Our agenda will take us to 4:30-ish, then we "talk shop" for as long as it takes. (See details below.)

Food: As a group, we've been pretty good about snacks. Please discuss in the other thread who will volunteer to bring what.

Directions: Use Mapping / GPS tools for detailed directions from your location. Meeting location is at my house, but if you want to volunteer your location all you have to do is say (type) something in the discussion thread.

Typical Agenda:
• (Pre-Meeting Tutorial - Starts at 1:30)
• Introductions (Starts at 2:00)
• Raffle Ticket Sales: $5 each (there's no need to buy more than one, no requirement to participate)
• Business
o Update on our funds (which is always 0$ since Jim spends the previous meetings raffle income to buy things for the current meeting)
o Anything else if/when needed
• Show and Tell:
o Everyone should plan on telling at least one story or ask one question
o If you don't have any new pens ... then bring something else
• Shop Talk (talk about your 'shop')
• Story Telling (kind of like fishing stories, only about turning and flat work)
• Swap & Shop - If you bring anything to trade or sell, this is the time to explain them.
• Parts Exchange - An extension of Swap & Trade, but is specific to pen kits parts
• Raffle
• Demo 1 – Basic bowl/form segmenting using a sled and “East-Seg” templates. Stomper etc.
• Demo 2 "Lichtenberg Fractals"
Raffle Notes: $5 per ticket gets you a something from the table (no need to buy more than one ticket). Everyone is encouraged to bring a trinket to throw on the table.

Check out the http://www.penturners.org/forum/f90/...ussion-127090/ thread where you can provide suggestions, ask questions, and perhaps volunteer to demonstrate.

Extra note: The General Meeting will be held in my garage, I will put a space heater in the morning so it will be somewhat warm. However, given that the meeting is in late October bring a coat, just in case. I have eight plastic chairs, as we don’t know how many will come it may be wise to bring a folding chair to sit on. As my Shop/Studio is in the basement we do have a “Chair Lift” that can be used if anyone need it.

Default I'll be there ...

Ron,

Thanks so much for stepping in and getting things re-organized.

I'll be at the meeting with a demo (more later on that).

Jim

Ron, If it stays as warm as it has been, I expect you'll be swapping out the heater for some nice cold beers, right? I suspect I will bet working and will sadly miss another meeting. Have fun.
