American Association of Woodturners

Newsletter ~ July 12, 2000

Meeting opened by Craig Mason at 7:00 p.m.

Minutes of last meeting read and accepted.

Treasury report read and accepted.

AAW accepted our charter and modifications to By-Laws.

Rules for 'Project Competition' accepted.

Project/Challenge Rules and Information

Rules for each Project/Challenge will be announced at our bi-monthly meetings and will be specific to that Project/Challenge.

Example: This month's Project/Challenge "The Mallet"
          Any type of wood
          Any size
For this particular Project/Challenge there are no restrictions (use your imagination)

If our next Project/Challenge is a bowl, for example, we might have wood or size restrictions.

Please do not sign your item until after the judging. This keeps things fairer.

Once all items are brought in, a cup will be placed next to each entry. Members will be given 1 wooden slug. Members will place the wooden slug in the cup next to the entry they want for first place. Entry with the most wooden slugs will be first place, second most is second place, then third. If there is a tie, members will revote.

Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places will be awarded. If the person chosen for 1st Place has won within the last year, he will receive Honorable Mention and 2nd Place would move to 1st, 3rd would move to 2nd, 4th would move to 3rd.

All Project/Challenge's from now on will have a sign-up sheet and a $5.00 entry fee. A percentage of the entry fee will go into the club treasury; the rest will be used to purchase 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.

The winners, once announced, will be asked to explain the process used to make their item and any particular challenges they came across.

Program Committee is open for suggestions.

Announcement: Next meeting September 13.

Program: Demo by Herb Kaneko. Answered questions by turners. Showed techniques for turning problems. (Excellent presentation)

Judging of mango project.

Meeting closed at 8:45 p.m.
