Hello Everyone;

Yes, there is...   Time has really flown by, and I haven't finished getting my shop organized, but I am still planning on having the meeting in my shop in Bloomington, unless someone has an alternative that works better.  The only two choices I have as far as dates would be the 11th of October or the 1st of November.  I will e-mail everyone this weekend, and we can finalie the agenda...

I haven't heard any details. Is it safe to assume there's no meeting tomorrow?

I guess John is not going to set up a fall meeting since it is already the end of November. Maybe we can have a spring meeting if anybody wants to take charge.

You guys are confusing me. Are you talking about the Indiana chapter or the Carolinas chapter and if it is the Carolinas chapter why is it posted on the Indiana page?
