Michael Hosaluk demonstration coming up September 30-October 2. You can see more details on the poster for the event. We will be looking for more people to help with the demo. You can learn more about Michael at his web site.
The Michael Hosaluk demo will be full of good information for turners of all skill levels. We really need to get a good turnout so please do your part and pass the word as well as print out and put up some of these posters where you can.
Doors open Friday and Saturday at 8:00AM. Demo starts at 8:30AM and runs until 4:00PM
There will be drawings for prizes during breaks on Saturday. Thanks to Kenyon Noble for a $250 gift certificate, Belgrade TruValue Hardware for a tool set, and Craft Supplies for donating gift certificates. Please be sure to thank and patronize these generious businesses.
The Friday demo will be mostly oriented toward the school kids. The goal is to get them excited about woodworking. There will be 4 demonstrations around the class periods with fresh kids showing up each period. The demos may have some repetition from class period to class period. The class schedule is;
Schedule still being worked out to give as many students as possible a chance to enjoy a demo.
There may be a show and tell session from 1:45-2:45 during a lull in the classes to get Michael's feedback on your best pieces. This may get pushed to allow for more demos for the kids.
The Saturday demonstration will be oriented directly toward people that are already interested in turning and show Michael's best techniques. Remember that your demonstration admission price covers both Friday and Saturday so you can attend as much of both days as you want.
More details about parking for the demo are available on the Events page

We need to get more members to step up and give a demonstration. There are many skills within our group and it really helps to share your knowledge. If you have a topic that you would like to know more about please ask and we can see if someone will step up and give a demo. We are always looking for new and better ideas for demos.
With the change of the NRWG year to September thru September, dues are now due in September. The cost of the membership has been raised to $25/year. This money is used to keep the library going, help with the student group and to help defray the costs of bringing in demonstrators.
The secretary of the group is cleaning up the e-mail listing. If you have not been getting meeting announcements be sure to drop Dean an e-mail at Secretary@NRWG.org
If you have items that you have checked out of the library and have had them for awhile please get them back for others to enjoy. The time limit is 30 days.
