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, our first ever "Woodworking Soiree" was held on Saturday, July 22, 2023 from 9am to 4pm 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.
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.
Photos will be posted once the event is completed.
