Notes of meeting

 

This month there were 17 members present

 

Demonstration

This month’s demonstration by Steve Jacks was a model of a classic racing car which is different to the usual theme of our demonstrations. Steve first laminated the body (at home prior to the meeting) and then turned it to the streamlined shape. Axles made and fitted and then the wheels turned, finally the body trim, fin, exhausts etc. fitted.

A very interesting evening covering an area not many have the patience to attempt, the result is well worth it thanks Steve.

 

This Month’s Competition

This month’s competition, a natural edge item was won by John Charnock, second John Blake and joint third Sidney Bracken and Mike Pannell.

 

Next Competition

The next competition will be a Pendant, any shape or size.

 

Next Meeting

The demonstration will be by Jon Simpson who visits our club each year at this time. He will be making a segmented apple and if time permits some jewellery.

 

 

AOB (reminder)

John C explained the new voting procedure for the monthly competition:

1Entrants will place their items on the table and get a number.

2At break time club members will choose their favourite item and place a tick by the number on the competition sheet.

3At the end of the evening when picking up their entry members are responsible for entering their name on the competition sheet by their number.

4If a member does not enter their name no points will be accumulated for that month’s competition, this will limit their chances of winning the cumulative annual competition in the AGM awards.

 

CLUB EQUIPMENT

When items of club equipment and tools are on loan, please ensure they are brought to the various meetings particularly for the hands on evenings so that members can receive tuition with adequate equipment available.
