Discussed was the setup and schedule to man the booth, and the equipment setup. President Dave will be organizing the show.


Membership Dues are to be collected starting this meeting for the 2006 membership year still set at only $20/year. President Dave is organizing the show.


Robin Russell from Woodcraft has indicated his willingness to be with us and demo at the next meeting. He has demonstrated at a number of events and seems to be a good turner to demo for us.


The Demonstrator tonight was Steven Richie from the Charlotte Woodturners Club, which gave us a great demo on lidded boxes. He showed how to make a box with a lid that fits properly. It really is not that hard so we all should be able to make boxes with lids.


Raffle: Woodcraft has continued to provide a $25 gift certificate for each meeting; we have other prizes including good bowl blanks.


Meeting adjourned at 8:40 pm
