RE: Fall 2011 Chapter Meeting Agenda Sept 17 & 18
« on: July 22, 2011, 07:46:05 PM »
 SAPFM  ORV Chapter,

HOTEL ARRANGEMENTS:  

Comfort Inn West
102 Racer Dr., Cross Lanes, WV  25313
Phone 304-776-8070
Group Room Rate is $81/night in the name of "SAPFM Furniture Makers."  The cutoff date for the reservation is Aug 16.  I have reserved 10 rooms for Friday night and an additional 15 (25 total) rooms for Saturday night.

The Fall 2011 Meeting has been set for Saturday and Sunday, Sept 17 at The Valley Woodworker's meeting room/shop located in Dunbar, West Virginia.    See http://valleywoodworkers.org/    

We will also be doing a round table discussion on profile scraper.  If you have made one in the past, please bring it.  I would like for the discussion to talk about the shapes, how to make them, how to sharpen them, different types of holders, and how to use them.  This round table format worked really well at the 2010 Fall when we talked about finishing.
 
As usual, I will need a head count of who is planning to attend so that we can get the right amount of food.  
 
The shop will be open at 10 am and closes right after the meeting.  

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

Thanks,
David

Proposed AGENDA

SATURDAY, September 17, 2011

1. Open doors at 10:00am
Arrive, relax, have some coffee

2. Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00am to 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.

2b) Break to discuss Show & Tell one-on-one, 11:30am-12:00pm
   Also, we will have another swap meet.  If you have got something to sell or trade, please bring it.  

3. Lunch, 12:00 to 1:00pm
