The IKI Woodturners Club convened at the shop of Louis Duncan due to scheduling conflicts with the Morningside Presbyterian Church.     Thank you Louis for your hospitality.

Welcome to our visitors and fist time attendees.  We hope they will return.

As a reminder, dues for 2014 are due and were approved at $25.00 (of which $5 will be donated to the church).

The nominating committee offered the following slate of candidates:  Roger Domina, president, Susan Hansen, treasurer, Dan Davis, secretary, Dennis Young, V.P./Program Chair.  Motion made, seconded, and approved for this group to serve in these officer positions through 2014.  In addition, the following agreed to continue to serve as follows:  Librarian - Scott Allen, Media - Bob Blandford, Communications - Flint Bone, Membership Roster - Tom Rusche.

Toys and gifts to be donated to Deaconess Gateway Hospital Pediatrics were collected.   Thanks to all participants.

Dennis Young recommended the club purchase a mobile stand for the club lathe.  After discussion, the club voted to approve the purchase after which voted to authorize Dennis to make to purchase at a cost not to exceed $200.00.

Eric Gourieux gave a well received demonstration on turning a natural edge bowl out of Persimmon.   Eric left the perception that he "liked" the Powermatic lathe, however was unsuccessful in working out any kind of a trade with Louis.

Our meeting closed at 3:00pm.

Next meeting:   Sunday, January 12, 2014, 1:30 PM at Morningside Presbyterian Church.
