Camping and Woodturning

northwest washington woodturners logoDo you like woodturning? Do you like camping? Well, the Northwest Washington Woodturners has the event for you. The AAW chapter is holding a Camping and Turning Rendezvous in Ellensburg, Washington. Dates for the event are July 8th through the 24th.

This is an unstructured camping and outdoor turning get-together where like minded folk can relax and share experiences. You are invited to bring your own mini lathe and come for as long as you wish between these dates. The event will be held in the North RV lot at the Kittitas Valley Event Center (Ellensburg Rodeo Grounds). The only fees are for camping – $13 per rig for power and water hookup, $8 per rig for tent for dry camping. There is a dumpsite nearby.
