Default Current Counts

I've talked to a lot of you on the phone. The current tally seems to be:

~8 confirmed to attend
~8 possibly attending
~4 declines
~14 no responses

I'm thinking we'll have between 10 and 16 people.

Everyone is welcome to bring a guest ... no advance notification needed.

  • I'm making Texas Chili (defined as 'no beans')
  • Everyone should bring their business cards (for their pen/woodworking hobby/business)
  • If you went home from previous meetings with nice pieces for wood, you are expected to eventually bring it back as a show-n-tell item!
See you all soon !!!

Default Done !

Attendance was a little lite, but a good time was had by all ...

A special thanks to Pat who came in from Iowa (OK, mot just to see us).

We had a presentation from Jim (not me, but Jim from the Blue Water Wood-turners group) about Pens for Troops. If you are interested in making some pens for our military service personnel, here are the highlights of our discussion:
  • You provide the pen (kit & blank).
  • Use any kit you like ... you can also get a slime-line through Blue Water Jim for $2.
  • You can contact Blue Water Jim directly (PM me), or let me know (via a new thread in the Michigan forum "Michigan Chapter - Pens for Troops") and we'll arrange to have them available at the next meeting.
  • Once the pen is complete, bring them to our next meeting and we'll get them back to Blue Water.
  • The Blue Water organization has been making and forwarding pens for 4 years now. I don't see any reason to do the work to setup our own channels when we can team up with Blue Water and take advantage of the work they have already done.
  • Please see the thread mentioned above to learn more and to discuss the logistics, ask & answer questions, etc.
Thanks to Mark Ruby for the advice on bowl turning.

I'll setup a new thread for the summer meeting ... talk/type to everyone there!
