    Hey Fellow Woodturners!

    This weekend, January 24-26 "The Woodworking Shows" will be at the Florida State Fair Entertainment Hall located at 4800 US Highway 301 North, Tampa, FL, 33610.  The show runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and one ticket gets you in all three days.  ($12 in advance, $14 at the door).   All three days are filled with tons of seminars and demonstrations.  All the woodturning related seminars and demos are included with the price of admission.  Of course with all the vendors that will be there, it will be like going to Woodturners-R-Us Toy Store!!  I will be up there on Saturday; the guy that will have his wife pushing him away from all the vendors :)...

    Hope to see you all there...

    If you would like to support the military men and women who are serving and protecting our country, and you are addicted to pen turning like me, Phil Adilla is looking for volunteers on our next open shop day, Saturday, January 18th, from 9 am until noon, to turn pens that will be sent to our active-duty troops. 

    So come out on the 18th and show your support for these amazing men and women by sharing your love for turning.  This gives us an opportunity to give them something they can use every day that shows them how much we appreciate their sacrifice.  

    If you have any questions about our club's "Pens for Troops" project, please reach out to any of the club officers!

    BTW, I turned and finished 10 sets of pre-tubed pen blanks last week on open shop day.  Who is up to outdoing me? :)

    ArtFest 2020, February 1st & 2nd, is only three weeks away!  So far, there has been a great response for volunteers for the ArtFest event!  There are only 7 slots left for club members to demonstrate turning and answer questions for the public.  This is a wonderful opportunity for us to show off what we do and how we do it.  If you would like the opportunity to volunteer a little time, show off your wood turning skills, and watch the kids eyes light up as your project comes to life, grab one of the remaining spots for the event.  Thank you to everyone who has already signed up!  Grab an open spot and enjoy ArtFest 2020!
