Finalized agenda

Attention SAPFM members,

The Blue Ridge chapter is holding its Fall meeting in Fredericksburg, VA
on November 19.  We will be hosted by the Fredericksburg Area Woodworkers
Guild at their newly opened workshop.  We have invited guild members to
join us for this meeting.  Cartouche Award winner Ben Hobbs will be the
featured presenter.  We have more space than usual for this meeting and
we want to make good use of it.  We want everyone to bring a project
(complete or in progress) or a tool or jig to share.  We will also have a
tool swap so bring tools, books or other items you want to swap or sell.
We also expect to have the first chapter shirts to show and order.
Dinner after the meeting will be at Castiglia's Restaurant. As usual,
there will be coffee and donuts in the morning and we will bring in
sandwiches or pizza for lunch in the shop. Members are welcome to bring
guests who might be interested in joining SAPFM and the chapter.

The FAWG has top quality domestic and exotic hardwoods for sale at the
shop so if you are interested please plan accordingly.

Please respond to this email as soon as possible so that we have a count
for the meeting and dinner afterwards.  We look forward to seeing as many
of you as possible. All SAPFM members are welcome to attend, there is no
separate chapter membership.

Regards,

Bob Mustain
Chapter coordinator
