October 2011 Meeting and Activities Update

The Very Popular Dave McKeithan making
more Spin Tops at the Waxhaw-Fall Festival
Again we had a very informative Demonstration and Meeting on Oct. 4 at the McKeithan Shop. You should have been there.

Dave Powless showed off his Easy Wood Tools which are sold at the Woodcraft Store in Matthews. They don't need sharpening as they are carbide tool tips which can be replaced in the event you do an awful amount of turning. The Club Meeting and raffle followed which included a $25 Gift Certificate to the Woodcraft Store.

Then, Saturday and Sunday we were quite busy at the Fall Festival in downtown Waxhaw. Lots and lots of people and the kids were again delighted to have some real live Spin Tops. They are a big hit as always. The kids were waiting in line all day. A big crowd was on hand with lots of activities and food along with music groups. #What beautiful weather presented for a nice Fall day in a small town in North Carolina. Where could we have a better time than in Waxhaw?!
