Many demonstrations cannot be conducted during our various meetings due to the equipment they need or the mess they will make. A new club event was started in 2023 - our Woodworking Soiree". It was held on Saturday, July 22, 2023 to provide several of these demonstrations for members to attend and/or participate in. The club erected a large tent under which several of the demonstrators were housed while others will be in the open space or in the workshop area. The event is being held at the club's workshop location, Eight Acres Event Center.
Comments from the 100+ people who attended in 2023 indicated the event needed to be repeated in 2024. The schedule is set - Saturday, July 20 from 9am to 4pm. We are already scheduling demonstrators. Put the event on your schedule as it will be bigger and better than our 2023 event!
Note that this facility is a private home so the address is not publicized. If you are not a member and wish to attend, please send your contact information and reason for attending to our club mailbox, email@example.com.
