Letters From the President

SOUTHWEST IDAHO WOODTURNERS ASSOCIATION
The Treasure Valley Woodturner's Club
Boise Idaho

September 10, 2012

Presidents Letter:

The woodturners and woodworkers had a special picnic at Ron Lee's home in August and those that missed it, missed a good one. Ron and Linda did both clubs proud and the weather treated us great. The croquet mallet and playing contest went very well and some neat ideas were presented by almost everyone. Thanks again to all those that supported this event with time, muscle and food.

Reminder: 

Our September meeting  will be centered around demos of Christmas ornaments.
We want to do 3 or 4 demos simultaneously for 1 ½ hrs than have a business meeting. Please get with me if you would like to demo a favorite ornament to the club.

October  9th meeting will be a Sorby presentation on their latest products plus our regular meeting.
Before the October meeting, our revised club bylaws will be put on the web site for everyone to review and we will vote on them at the October Meeting.

Nomination for officers for 2013 to be held at the October 9th mtg. We will elect officers for the 2013 year at our November meeting.

October 19-20-21 will be a three day seminar by Kirk DeHeer at Woodcraft.
The information about this seminar has been on our web site for a few weeks.
Get signed up as it will be difficult to match this presentation and price again. The club funds are being used to supplement this seminar and all members should try to be part of it. There's  something for all club members in these three days. If you have ideas about the seminar to improve it, please bring your suggestions to the Tuesday meeting or email me.

The Turn for the Troops day will be Saturday  November 3rd.  Steve has 1140 pens planned and could use some help drilling, gluing, sorting parts etc.  For an effective and efficient Saturday, it's helpful to have a couple hundred pens ready for the assemblers to start on.  So let's support this club project and Steve anyway you can.

November  13th will be John  Lee on his splendid work with segmented turning techniques and all the finery he brings to woodworking. (Don't miss this one)

Thanks again,

Frank
