Default Meeting place.

I am trying a couple of locations were we can meet. Maybe some where in the middle of the state for one meeting. Like Harrisburg area. Another meeting place in the philadelphia are for the south eastern group. Let me know what you think. I have talked to Woodcraft so far it seems to be no problem. I will be talking to Penn State Ind next week and get there feed back.

Hi Alan

My turning club meets at the Delaware Woodcraft store , I'm sure they would do something . I could talk to the manager at the next meeting. Perhaps local VFW's or a rotation at member shops .

Regards
Jerry

Hi Alan,

Since this is going to be a Tri-State Group, maybe we could look for a central location among all of those who are interested. I have had previous experience with a group having two locations, and in a short time, people only went to the meetings that were close to them. Just some experience.

Regards,
Wayne

I would think Phila is some what in the middle... north Jersey to south Delaware... probably even farther south would be the middle...but maybe if we don't have a volunteer in there shop Penn State is in the Phila area..... they could probably house us


Just my one cent...were ever it ends up being..I will see you there

There is a Woodcraft in Downingtown, I believe. That is pretty central for anyone (except if you live in Pittsburgh!)

Sorry guys. Not been around alot. That is now changing. Yes I am in talks with Penn state of allowing us to use there showroom for a meeting place. Also woodcraft in Downingtown is a good location. The store owner there has down alot for the turning community. Give me a couple of more weeks to get a location.

Thanks

Alan

Eric,
You are pretty close to me. Im right in hawley, honesdale area. I wish we could find more people up here. Phili is pretty far for me to travel. I can go as far as central Jersey.

Alan and ALL; I am in Harrisburg PA. If anyone wants to come to Harrisburg instead of driving all the way to the meeting, you could stop in Harrisburg and we could car-pool from there.

I think this is a good idea for other coming from other directions.....
