Thanks for covering for me in organizing this meeting.... I've been swamped at work.
I'll be calling everyone (if I have the phone number) in the Chapter to remind them of the meeting. Everyone try to remember to call other that you know that might want to attend (and that means, some people might get more than one phone call ... apologies).
Let not forget to sign up for the 'bring-alongs' (snacks).
Got your message today- sorry I missed your call but thanks for calling. I will try to make it but can't guarantee anything. My boy has a Boy Scout camp out this weekend and we are supposed to be back on Sunday but i'm not sure what time. If I get home early enough I will be there.
Hello everyone,I'm unable to host sunday I had some family stuff to take care of(everyone is fine).I'm very sorry for the short notice,see everyone soon.Oh May 11th I'm having one of my open houses,literally tons of wood for sale.Thanks,Victor
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.
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!
