Quickly approaching...The Klingspor's Extravaganza is one of the many ways we can support Coleman and the Klingspor's team. Setup will be on Thursday night, with 2 full days on Friday and Saturday. We will need volunteers to meet and greet, man the lathes, assist with the flat work (birdhouses, etc.). Bring samples of your work and talk about how you built it with other woodworkers!

If you've never attended, this is the regional event to visit! If you visit, stop by our booth and help out for a couple of hours if you cannot commit to a half or full day.

Klingspor's Extravaganza 2019

Barry, open for suggestions. I was not able to help with the setup last year. What worked, and what could have worked better?

Unfortunately, this will be the first time I will miss it. I will be training my replacement (at Bosch) as I approach my retirement date.

I always plan to be there from about noon on Thursday (for setup) to the end of the event. I will be booking a room at the Hampton Inn, which is within walking distance of the Convention Center for the entire event, leaving late on Saturday. Do to my physical health I won't be able to help much with setup or take down, but can provide a lot of moral support to those more able to do so.

I will be available in the booth to help both days of the event. Probably to help build bird houses or something else that doesn't require standing for long periods of time.

Raymond, we'll miss you, but hang in there, retirement is a great place to be.

Just finished booking my reservation for the Hampton Inn for 24-26 of October. See y'all there.

I'm planning to be there by noon on Thursday also and stay through the whole event! Count me in for setup, tear down, and what ever happens in between during the show!

It seems that noon remains the preferred time to begin setup. That allows enough time to not be in a rush and, probably more importantly, to enjoy the delicious lunch provided by Klingspor and Coleman.:D I will have the trailer in Hickory by noon.

I will be there from 9:00 am to noon on Friday. I typically bring some simple project that others can also demo, but this year I seem to be out of ideas

I've updated the volunteer list above. We'll need greeters to help kids get into lines, talk about who we are & what we do, etc.
