August, 2009 Meeting
The August meeting was well attended - we continue to grow with new members! Thanks to everyone who
jumped in to help with all of the meeting necessities!
The Show and Tell portion of the meeting just keeps getting bigger and bigger! There were enough pieces to
fill the shelves, and the quality of the items submitted continues to improve. Many of the stories of how these
pieces came to be are very informative and helpful. Harold Stoner won the Advanced Turner of the Month for
his Lignum Vitae bowl; Art Fox won the Novice Turner award for his segmented piece.
Many thanks to Rick and Awilda Wilson for their generous donations of wood and signs to the Bring Back
Auction! The $5 Auction continues to be very popular, and this month the auction was for the cutting board
and knife made by Harold Stoner.
Harold also was our demonstrator this month, and other than a little trouble with some very punky wood, the
natural edge bowl demo was well received.
See you at 4th Saturday!

We had a rowdy crowd, as usual!
