RE: Fall 2009 Chapter Meeting Agenda
« on: May 11, 2009, 10:59:18 PM »
SAPFM – ORV Chapter,

The Fall 2009 Meeting has been set for Saturday and Sunday, September 26 & 27 at University of Rio Grande.  The hotel is in Jackson, OH.  Also, Jackson, OH is having their Fall Festival on this same weekend, so make sure to get your hotel reservation done early!  
As usual, I will need a head count of who is planning to attend so that we can get the right amount of food.

Again, this meeting will be free to all SAPFM dues paying members. The proposed agenda is listed below.  


Society of American Period Furniture Makers
Ohio River Valley Chapter
Proposed AGENDA

SATURDAY, September 26, 2009

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.

At our last meeting, we decided to expand Show & Tell to include the issues that people encountered during the construction of these pieces and/or jigs that you developed to overcome the problems.

3. Lunch, 12:00 – 1:00pm
   Saturday’s lunch will be Pizza.
4. Demonstrations, 1:00 – 5:00pm
