IKI Woodturners Club Meeting Minutes, June 8, 2014

Susan Hansen presented a mid-year written financial report. Our Club has a balance of $2,141.16.

Dan Davis gave an update on lathe shields. He contacted the AAW for advice.  We decided on clear 1/4" polycarbonate as our shield material. A prototype will be brought to the next meeting for review.

A booth hosted by Susan Hansen will be available for members to display and sell turnings at the Freedom Festival on June 14 & 15. There is room for approximately 30 turnings.  Feel free to contact Susan should you have an interest.

Rich Couture shared that the Southwest Indiana Arts Council is willing to display and promote 30 to 40 of the club's turnings.  After some discussion it was decided to accept their offer to display our works during the month of November; with the potential for a few to be held through December.  Rich will gather additional information regarding a possible reception and report back at the July meeting. The consensus was to pass on the opportunity to make it a juried event.

Rich also mentioned the Arts in the Parks wanted to know if we would be interested in having a booth in their exhibition on June 21.  The cost per booth would be $30.00.  Our membership declined due to the timing of the event and lack of ability to be prepared.   Larry “Joe” Pack mentioned he has an outside canopy & booth that he would make available to the club if the need arose.  Thanks Joe.

Rich has been in contact with the Old Mill group in Jasper about giving a demonstration at their facility. He will report back next meeting with regard to the timing and specifics of what will be available.

Flint Bone has agreed to make his photography booth available for members to have photos of their turnings taken at the July meeting.

Roger Domina presented a prototype of a brochure he’s working on that will feature our club and turnings.  Ideas are welcomed.

Don Ile demonstrated his sled and angle cutting jigs, as well as his homemade press used for making his segmented turnings.  Well done Don!
Dennis Young is looking for a demonstrator for the July meeting.  Please let him know if you have an interest.
Thanks again to those that brought in their work for show and tell.

Our meeting closed at 3:30pm.  Next meeting, Sunday, July 13th.

Keep turning!!
