MEETINGS and COVID-19:
The City of KCMO mask mandate for meetings is no longer in effect. You may still wear a mask if you like. We will also continue to Zoom the meeting to those members that don't feel comfortable at an in-person meeting or just can't attend the meeting in person. The Zoom details will be emailed to members the week before the meeting.
Regular Meeting: We will have a Roundtable Discussion by the KC Woodturners members who recently attended a major national woodturning event: The AAW Woodturning Symposium, Turn on Chicago, and SWAT. If you have never attended one of these events, this discussion might help you see what you have been missing. Also, Jerry Darter may may give us a refresher top-turning demo. Your club is in need of lots of tops for Irish Fest and Santa's Workshop. September Challenge: Make a bowl with the lip turned in (a hollow turning).
