Evening all.
I organised a couple of days in 2014 and 15 that raised money for the School I worked in, and gave an enjoyable (hopefully) day out for many people I know in the wood turning world.
I have since left the School but may resurrect this meet if there is enough interest?
Can't give any date at the moment, but a simple yes or no will help me to see if this is viable? :thumbs:

100% yes Neil if it doesn't clash with our Canada trip. Might even be able to persuade Sue to come along and stay over if we can find a dog sitter.:thumbs:

Mark is a miserable bugger giving a flat NO just 'cos he lives a few miles away:rolling: Doesn't know what he's missing!

I'll start looking at venues and dates.
Better sort the wedding date out first though, or I may be in a spot of bother!:whistling::funny:

I thought Kent was a garden centre in England, or was it Superman's surname:thinks::face:

Sorry if this is a daft question as never been to a meet, but what happens at these meets? Is it meeting up for a meal & drinks? & chat about pen turning of course! Is it daytime or evening?

Myself & wife would be up for it, if we can arrange respite care for our daughter if it's a evening.

Hi Paul. It was usually a weekend day event, and probably will be again.
Here is a quick explanation I put for newbies on facebook.

For 2 years in a row I hosted a day event at the school I worked in. We had demonstrations and auctions of donated goods, with the profit going to buy tools or materials for the dt dept. The ticket price paid for the buffet lunch and any demo costs. The first year Walter and Philip Greenwood gave their services for free. The second year Tony Wilson demoed all day at a very charitable rate that covered his expenses. We had sales as well from Dan, myself, and other wood suppliers. Mostly though, people just wanted to come for the meet up and have a good chin wag. Both times well over 1000 was raised at the auction. Obviously costs will be higher this time as I'll have to hire a venue, so the tenner ticket price might rise a tad. If this comes off and we have an auction again, all the money from that will go to Bill Mooney for Blind Veterans.

Hope this helps.

It's a pity Llandudno is so far away as it would probably be a free venue with a workshop with three lathes & a nice big room for the auction etc. A chance to meet the members & staff & a look at our facilities.
