February, 2014 Meeting
Our February, 2014 meeting was long overdue, since we missed December, 2013 due to our
annual Christmas Party, which was postponed due to inclement weather, and the postponed
Christmas Party was held in January, 2014 at Dr. Mark Ost's residence in Pineville, MO.
The Chris Ost Award, selected by the past President for the individual he deems to have
been the outstanding contributor to our club for the past year, was awarded to Guy
Braughler. Congratulations, Guy!!!
The Cunningham Award, selected by a vote of the club members for the outstanding turner
of the past year, was awarded to Les Brandt. Congratulations, Les!!!
Awards for the best "Show and Tell" pieces were won by Les Brandt, for the "Advanced"
catagory, and by Charles Peek, for the "Novice" category. Congratulations to both!!
The demonstration was presented by Jim King, and consisted of demos of a fixture for
turning smaller, offset objects; a fixture for turning wood bracelets; and a demonstration of
the "Elbo Tool" hollowing system.
I am very sorry to say that Dr. Mark Ost passed away on February 10, 2014. Mark's
contributions to our club have been so great that they are immeasurable! He will be sorely
missed by all of us.
4th Saturday activities will be at Les Brandt's shop in Huntsville.
