    Asheville - Call for volunteers - March 24, 2018

    The Klingspor Store in Asheville is having an open house again this year. They are asking for volunteers from NCWW to demonstrate woodworking skills and participate in a fun event. If you can come out and play that day there will be a tent and food trucks and vendors and sales and giveaways and and and and and.

    Berta said she might be able to attend and Michael is currently planning on it. We need a few more of you western NCWW'ers to make our presence felt and recruit new members. Post here if you can help out. We'll add details as they become available.

    Members of the Western NC Woodworkers Association that meet every month at the Fletcher/Asheville Klingspor store will man a booth for the third straight year at this Open House --- we look forward to it each year and it is just part of the way we try to pay back the generosity Klingspor's has given to us for several years. We meet the second Saturday of each month at 9:30 AM - Noon.
    Every day brings a new adventure -- it is great to be retired!

    It is a definite possibility that I might be able to maybe be there, probably with a teenager or two. We can take turns making pens.

    Would I need to bring my lathe?

    Re: Asheville - Call for volunteers - March 24, 2018

    I have been fortunate enough to be able to be there at the grand opening and also last year at their open house.
    Last year we had an area and a table set up close to Rob's WNC group. Thanks Rob for pulling 'double duty', and Debbie I had a familiar face to talk with, and Rob watched the area when I needed to step away for a bit. Would be nice to see some more western NC people join in this year. I took one of my lathes last year and made some small pieces - weed pot, honey dipper, pens, and such. We talked with a fair number of people, but no numbers like the grand opening.
    Have to say there was not much representation from the group. I happened to have had a few NCWW cards in my lathe stand, and had my lap top set up but that was all that identified who I was trying to represent. Oh, then they came around and asked people with lap tops to disconnect as their band width or something being used by so many was affecting their store computer system.
    Would not expect the outreach trailer to be there from so far away, but would be nice to have something to identify the organization there and maybe some cards and/or flyers.
    Continued issues with Debbie's health may not allow me to be there and possibly have to leave if I do go, so I can not commit but will try to be there.

    Would be really nice if we could get some banners and / or business cards there for the event.

    Have it on my calendar. As I'll be driving over that morning, I'll probably be a little later arrival.

    That would be great if we can do it. MCWW shirts would be good too.

    I will be there; however, I don't have a NCWW shirt. I tried to order but they do carry them in my size.

    Now that Barnum And Bailey Circus has shut down, maybe I can stand a chance to get a shirt, when they part out a tent......

    Let me know if I should order more shirts - might still be time to get them made if I do it right away. And need to know what sizes to order and where to have them shipped.
