Default Our Next Meeting


Our confirmed schedule is:
  1. April 23, 2017 (Loc: 6007 Justine, Belleville, MI 48111 - Jim's house)
  2. October 22, 2016 (Loc: 6007 Justine, Belleville, MI 48111 - Jim's house)

  • 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 usually my house, but if you want to volunterr 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: $5 each (there's no need to buy more than one, no requirement to participate)
  • Business
    • Update on our funds (which is always 0$ since I spend the previous meetings raffle income to buy things for the current meeting)
    • Anything else if/when needed
  • Demo 1 - Please use other thread to add ideas (either volunteer to demo, or requests for demos)
  • 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
  • Demo 2 (If we have one)
  • Show and Tell:
    • Everyone should plan on telling at least one story or ask one question
    • If you don't have any new pens ... then bring something else
  • Shop Talk (talk about your 'shop')
  • Story Telling (kinda like fishing stories, only about turning and flat work)
  • Raffle
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.
