SPSW Board Message

Note – The following message is from AAW Coordinator Keith Palmer.

Symposium Chapter Challenge

This is our last chance, folks. If we are going to do this we really need some ideas. We would like to vote on a project at the March meeting. Please send ideas to Keith Palmer.

Your Board of Directors thought it would be a good project to come up with a Chapter Challenge entry for the next AAW Symposium in June 2012. Bill Bender and Mike Hughes have already volunteered to start coming up with ideas for the project, but they also want contributions from all club members who have great and gifted ideas.

AAW Chapter Challenge Guidelines:

The entries may be functional or not, as long as they are turned by multiple members and limited only by the imagination of the participants. The best entry in each category will receive a winner’s plaque presented at the banquet. More explicit directions for the AAW Chapter collaborative Challenge project are specified in the latest issue (August 2011, page 11) of the AAW American Woodturner.

Categories are:

  • Artistic
  • Mechanical/Technical
  • Fantasy

In addition to the winners in the three categories, there will be a Best in Show plaque for the best of the best. For inspiration and ideas, see what entries have been presented at previous symposiums at this link at the AWW website: www.woodturner.org/gallery/#SymposiumPhotoGalleries

Let’s have a club presence at the Symposium!!!

Have fun turning!
Keith Palmer
