20 April 2019 Meeting Location Change

posted Apr 17, 2019, 8:45 AM by Chesapeake Woodturners
A HEAD’S UP TO EVERYONE:  Because Maryland Hall will be closed for Spring Break on Saturday, April 20th, the APRIL MEETING of the Chesapeake Woodturners will be held instead at TROY BEALL’S SHOP in Davidsonville, Maryland.  Troy has more than ample space for our meeting and will set up a demo lathe in the upper workshop with a large number of chairs.  The meeting will begin, as usual, at 9 AM.  We will have a business meeting, our customary Show and Tell, and then a demo by Mark Sfirri on Multi-Axis turning.  The exact project that Mark will demonstrate will be chosen by the guys taking his class on the day before.  As previously announced, there will be a $5.00 charge for the demo.  Please bring cash to pay this fee (but checks will be accepted).
Troy’s shop’s address is 3312 Rodeo Drive, Davidsonville.  It is a short distance off Davidsonville Road between Rt. 214 (Central Avenue) and Rt. 50.  To get there from Rt. 50, go south on Davidsonville Road for about three miles and turn right onto Mt. Airy.  Then, after about 300 yards, turn left onto Rodeo Drive.  Bear left on Rodeo drive into a cul-de-sac and the entrance driveway is directly off of the cul-de-sac.  To get there from Annapolis via Central,  go south on Rt. 2 (Solomon’s) and then west on Central to the light just beyond Homestead Gardens.  Turn right at the light (Davidsonville Rd) and go about ¾ of a mile.  Then turn left on Mt. Airy.

Parking is limited at Troy’s so please consider car pooling to the meeting.  OR you could arrange to meet another club member at the parking lot of either the United Methodist Church or the Catholic Church and car pool from one of those lots.  Both are on Central Avenue just west of the Davidsonville Road intersection and about one mile from Troy’s.  There is also a park n’ ride lot immediately south of Rt. 50 on Davidsonville Road that could serve as a rendezvous spot.  Overall, Troy has parking for perhaps 20 vehicles.  There are a few handicap parking spaces so if you need one of those you don’t need to make special arrangements.
