A Word from the VP

If you attended our November meeting you know I decided to make changes to the VP Challenge. If you did not make it see the chart below. The letters are not in order but randomly picked. I wanted to liven it up a little and try to prevent the lack of interest in certain difficult letter groups. At the November meeting only two challenges we presented so it did not meet the objective of club members trying new techniques or woods. I hope to see greater participation next year. The list will be posted each month at the meetings and on the web site or fell free to call me or email me with questions. For new members the challenge is to turn a piece associated with 2-3 letters for example Feb. letters are XHE so you might make a hickory bowl or a platter of elm or hat. Those who enter are in a raffle for a Crafts Supply gift card.
