SW MO meeting

Our Spring meeting was a great success today. We had 23 folks from three states. Hugh Marshall and George Clark did great jobs with their respective demos. We are planning a fall picnic meeting in the September/October time frame. Thanks to Hut, Kallenshaan Woods, and several members for great door prizes! If you are in driving distance of Springfield, plan to come to the picnic!

:biggrin:What a blast, Thanks to Freddy, Hugh, George and the rest. Great demos and the prizes were fantastic. LOML and I had a great time and are looking forward to the next time. Sorry about Rifleman missing this just to go to Hawaii :tongue:.

It was good to meet everyone. I wish I could have been there the entire time.

Thank you to all of the door prize donors! You were all very generous.

I think I heard Larry is going to feed everyone bbq for $26.95 at the picnic. You can't beat $1 a person for pulled pork and all of the fixins. If enough show up, maybe we can get it down $0.50/person. :biggrin::tongue::biggrin::tongue::biggrin:

Finally getting time to reply. Been really busy at work.

I had a great time and even went out and bought some gold flake and poured some stoppers.

Here are some of my own PR stoppers and some with embedded objects.

I wanted to send the link to the "wolverine" hand made system that I made.

Looks great. I actually just bought the Jet wet grinder (tormek) clone. We had a member get out of woodturning and sold it at a bargain price. So I wont be using my hand made setup unless i am changing shapes.
