Regional Chapter Coordinator
Ohio River Valley Chapter Leader
SAPFM ? ORV Chapter,
The Spring 2011 Meeting has been set for Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27 at Brian Neeley?s workshop in Lancaster, Ohio.
As usual, I will need a head count of who is planning to attend so that we can get the right amount of food. And this is very important for the Neeley?s.
Also, Brian Neeley will again be selling air dried lumber. So, bring your pickup truck or trailer. Brian?s only requests that you contact him before the meeting with your wood request. That way he will have time to dig it out before the meeting.
Brian?s shop will be open at 7 am and closes at 10 pm-ish. It will be open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If anyone wants to come early or stay late, you are welcome.
I have listed several hotel for you to chose from and unlike the FIRST Spring meeting we are not competing with the bowling tournament. So there should be plenty of rooms.
Again, this meeting will be free to all SAPFM dues paying members. The proposed agenda is listed below.

SATURDAY, March 26, 2011
1. Open doors at 10:00am
Arrive, relax, have some coffee
2. Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00am ? 12:00pm
The ?show and tell? is an ice breaker. Please bring anything you would like to show off. If you have a special piece, a project or even a jig, please bring them. For those who haven?t attended a previous meeting, this is a quick introduction, a display of your skills, interests, projects both past and present, jig, etc. It can even be a request for help in a particular area. After we go around the room, we will break for 30 min. During this break, you can seek out the other members who have similar interest and/or have already built a project/jig you want to build. This break will give you the opportunity to meet and establish a new friendship, pick their brains, and continue communicating with them after the meeting. This is extremely helpful for highly specialized niches, like inlays, marquetry, carving, Bombay chest, etc.
2a) Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00 - 11:30am
Name, where you live, your past and present projects, classes, and/or your particular interest and your Show & Tell item if you brought one. ?
