IKI November Meeting Minutes 2014
November 9, 2014
Welcome to visitors Thom Solecki and Kevin Holzmeyer - we hope you guys will come back!
The Wonders In Wood event at the National Guard Armory went very well. The new shields and signage was well received by the Wood Carvers. Great picture of Keith Armstrong in the Evansville paper!
The display at the SW Indiana Arts council has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict. We are now tentatively looking at the April time frame. Rich Couture will keep us informed as we move forward.
Reminder of the Tennessee Annual Symposium in Franklin, TN. The following link provides all details:
The lathe tool given to the club by Doc has been found and is now checked out by Rich Couture. Upon its return it will be available for others to check out.
Motion made, seconded, and approved to keep annual dues for the club at $25 for 2015. $5.00 of each members dues will be donated to the church for use of their facility.
After discussion, Rusty Welborn and Roger Domina agreed to serve as the nominating committee for the slate of candidates to be considered for the following officer positions during 2015: President, Vice President/Program Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. Please let these guys know if you have an interest in filling any of these positions. We will plan to vote on the officers at our December meeting.
Jerry Zilliak was not available this month to speak to us regarding his exotic wood business. Both he and Jim Scheu from Dusty Woods will be scheduled to join us in the near future.
Don Johnson still has IKI caps and shirts available: Hats: $10.75 ea, Shirts with IKI log only: $11:00, and with the IKI logo and name: $13.50 ea. Let Don know if you're interested.
Thanks to Dennis Young for making the "yoga mat" pads available for use with reverse chucking.
Thanks to Dallas James for a great demo of how to turn a "Carrot Pen". Great gift idea!
As the church is in use on December 14, we will plan to have our December meeting at the shop of Louis and Teri Duncan; i.e. 100 Savannah Dr., Newburgh, IN.
Have a great Thanksgiving with your family's and we'll see you in December.
Roger - for Dan (best wishes for a quick recovery Dan!)
