21 Sept Meeting - Turning Norfolk Island Pineby Stan Brua

posted Sep 16, 2019, 10:28 AM by Chesapeake Woodturners
The September meeting of the Chesapeake Woodturners will be held this coming Saturday at Maryland Hall in Annapolis.  There are lots of items on the agenda that I want to remind you of.

Our newsletter editor, George French, will not be able to attend this meeting nor the meeting in October and he's looking for one or two volunteers to help out.  He'd like to have someone photograph Show and Tell and take notes about who shared their work for inclusion in the October and November newsletters.  He'd also like photographs (and possibly some notes) about the presentations made at each of these meetings.  If you are willing to help with this, please notify George ASAP at 

For those of you who have turned pens for the troops, please remember to bring your completed pens to Ken Lobo at the meeting.  Many pen kits have been handed out but apparently only a limited number of completed pens have been brought back.

The September meeting will include a raffle of books donated by the daughter of a woodworker from Arnold, MD who passed away awhile ago.  I've previously shared a list of the books that will be raffled.  Attached for your review is the list.  This may be incomplete.  I will be cross checking the list with the books and will share a final list with you later in the week.  The cost of a raffle ticket will be $1.  This will get the winners either one book from the list or, possibly, a small group of related titles.  While many of the books are old, they're all in good condition.

We will be having sign-ups for three festival demos that we're giving in October.  These are the Howard County Conservancy Fall Festival on Sunday, October 6 (coordinator - Doug Bartos), The Kinder Farm Park Fall Festival on Saturday, October 12 (coordinator - Lou Rudinski), and Art in the Park at Quiet Waters Park on Sunday, October 20 (coordinator - Neal Kaske).  Check your calendars and if you can participate, plan to sign-up at the meeting.

The September meeting will be your first opportunity to bring submissions for our November club show at the MFA Circle Gallery in Annapolis.  Everyone is encouraged to submit something they're proud to display and every effort will be made to guarantee that one submission from each participant will be accepted.  I previously sent out the submission forms; but if you missed that and would like a copy of the form ahead of the meeting, let me know.  The deadline for submissions will be Sunday, October 20th.

Finally, the main presentation at our meeting will be given by Stan Brua on the topic of Turning Norfolk Island Pine.
