September, 2016 Meeting

Meeting was called to order by Michael Guidry, President.
We had no new members nor guests.
The area woodcarvers were having an exhibition at the Frisco Mall, including a section for
woodturning. Several of our members; Mick Hutchison, Paul Moore, Bruce Reed and Bob
Bumgardner had sales tables and performed public demonstrations on the club's Jet midi lathe.
The October meeting will include election of new officers.
Ben Johnson suggested that the membership begin making plans to have a large number of our  
members attend the 2017 AAW national show in Kansas City. Ray Taylor suggested that the club
enter the group competition and decide on a project for the group to complete prior to the national
event. Dan McKenzie commented about the value of the SWAT meetings held every August in Waco
TX.
Ben Johnson repeated an earlier suggestion that the club seek out local charities or projects that the
members could support, such as the “Empty Bowl” event sponsored by Panera Breads.
Show-n-Tell was judged by Thermon Crocker and Larry Copas. Winners were Dan McKenzie in the
Advanced category for his sphere and stand and Thurman Hatch in Novice for his segmented
vessel. This is Thurman's 3rd time to when in the Novice category and will henceforth compete in
the Advanced. These two will be our judges at the October meeting.
Bring-Back Raffle winners were Guy Braughler, Buzz Peine, Thermon Crocker, Ben Johnson, Larry
Copas, Gary Olerud and Mike Rodda. Winners are responsible to bring items the following meeting
for the next raffle. All members are reminded that the preferred items for the raffle are items turned or
made by the members.
The club desperately needs for a few members to step up and learn how to operate our audio-visual
equipment.
Discussion was had about the possibility of the upcoming 4th Saturday meeting being held at  Dan
McKenzie's shop in Springfield MO. Ben Johnson will send out an email to members to determine
interest and to organize the trip.
