IKI Woodturners Club Meeeting Minutes Feb. 9,2014

The IKI Woodturners Club convened at 1:30pm, Feb 9, 2014. 

Welcome to our visitors:  Fred Crooks and Tom Ubelhor!  - Thanks for coming and we look forward to having you back again.

Dan Davis gave a brief update on the Tennessee Woodturners Symposium recently held in the Nashville area.

Business:  We discussed donating five dollars from each member's dues to the church, which has so generously donated their meeting room to host our monthly meetings.  A motion was made & seconded to donate this amount. The vote was unanimous.

Roger Domina announced he had contacted the Louisville, KY, Woodturners club and confirmed that on occasion they have Saturday turning demo's.   Their club has added Roger to their e-mail distribution list so we will be advised of upcoming events.

The Central Library in Newburgh will display our turnings from April 13 to May 4, 2014.  We anticipate being able to display 30 to 40 turnings.  As you identify what you plan to display let Roger know the title of the piece and kind of wood,  for purposes of placing this information along with your name on the "name tent" that will go with each turning.

The club voted to sell the stand previously used with our mini-lathe for $100.00.   Susan Hansen made the purchase.

We discussed the insurance policy our club currently holds through the AAW.  A motion was made & seconded to retain the "Group Level"  policy at the same $90 costs as last year.   A vote approved the motion.

Dennis suggested we buy a live center, power strip, & extension cord for the clubs mini-lathe. After discussion, a motion was made & seconded to buy these items with a limit not to exceed $100.00.  The vote was approved by our membership.

Demonstration:  Keith Armstrong demonstrated how to make a goblet with captive rings.  This demonstration was extremely well done.  It was enthusiastically received by our members.  Well done, Keith!

Many thanks to Bob Blandford for his work with media, and especially for his willingness to record the demo which will be placed on You Tube with a link placed on our IKI BLOG.
