The chapter forum posts don't make it to the front page. There used to be a huge volume of them and I did not add them to the feed because they were swamping the other forums.

I have been thinking of creating a "Local Chapter Announcements" forum that would be for posting these sort of things. How does that sound?

It seems that not having chapter announcements appear in new postings isn't conducive to getting the word out about chapter meetings. There are a lot of announcements that do appear in new posts that also seem to dilute postings directly related to pen turning. What would a few more mean to the overall number of topics?

I would think there should be an area where chapter postings could be easily found without someone wondering if there's a new post in a chapter forum.

I've added all chapter forums to the front page feed. We'll see how that goes for a while.

Austin sounds good, but anywhere should be fine.
Depending on the actual date, I would like to be counted in.
Let me know if I can help.

Will be in Houston in February. Could very well swing on over to Austin. One of my distributors I buy merchandise from is in Driftwood. I go there about twice a year.

What is the consensus for a location?

My shop? Or arrange something at the Austin Woodcraft?
