I agree. I don't think there is any reason to try to find a day that will work for everyone. We are wasting time trying. Here is my suggestion. We need someone who can visit with Craig and Divot at Wood World and look at their calendar. Pick dates for the next year, one Sat each quarter. Publish the dates here and then we have time to plan and arrange our schedule so as many who can will be able to attend.

Another suggestion: Although Woodworld is handy and a nice place to have the meetings we could meet elsewhere. I think Seamus and I are willing to host a meeting but we both just have our garages and spring or fall would vbebe the most comfortable.

There are more of you in the metropolex area and only two of us here. It only makes sense to have the meetings in the metgroplex. I don't mind coming to Dallas...I just mix it with a visit to my daughter's house and get another project done.

Thanks for listening,
Don

Thanks for offering your place for a meeting Don. I wouldn't mind traveling. I know many do to meet a Wood World. On a positive note if those can car pool will it can be a mini meeting on the way. I think it would be fun either way.

I would be willing to come up to WF. This is a good time of year if you guys are open.

I think demos are what we have a hard time with. Too many experts around here.

Most of our members probably have more turning experience than I do. That being said, I am willing to teach new members any/all of the steps involved in making pens. If you are a new turner and want to see how to use carbide tools for pen turning and apply a CA finish, please respond to this thread and we can set something up with WoodWorld.

I am not available on the 18th and may not be on the 25th. The first weekend in Nov looks good but I will need to check.
Don.

I am fairly new, and need finishing help, whether it's CA or otherwise. The earlier in the day the better for me is best.

South Dakota may be a little closer to Wichita Falls than Dallas is ☺

Seamus is the more evil one! But, I'm a close second. It's just a long day's drive.
