Greetings Woodworkers,

I’d like to thanks all who participated in our July meeting especially our two young visitors from Australia who came with their grandfather, Jim Ethington.  The Brandon club has a number of superb craftsmen who share their knowledge with other members.  I’d also like to ask you all to keep Vernon in your prayers and wish him a speedy recovery from his accident.  This should be a reminder to us all that woodworking, with all our skills, can be a dangerous venture – whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional.

Our August meeting on the 12th at 7:00p.m. will be at the Brandon Junior Women’s Club at 129 N moon. Ave.  Vernon was to present the program that evening but because of his injury has had to bow out.  I am presently looking for someone to replace Vernon.  Your input is appreciated.

Also on Saturday the 16th we will be taking a field trip to Hardwood Limber and Millworks in Lakeland.  We will gather at the Women’s Club with a departure time of 9:00 a.m.  We are planning to stop for lunch at the Lakeland airport and then a visit to the Phosphate Museum in Mulberry.

The HCC Woodcrafting class is starting a new session on September 13 through October 18.  The class run from 9:00 a.m.  – 12 noon every Saturday and the cost is $85.00.  You can register at http://www.tampatraining.com/training-courses/course-details.cfm?ID=1454  another session is scheduled to start November 1st.

September is the Brandon Woodworkers’ Clock Contest.

Look forward to seeing you there.


Until next time,
Happy Sawdust Trails,

Bruce
