One of these demo’s. I’ll get to the end. I hope you got something from watching open segmentation. I’m not done with the concept just yet. I have to try new limits to get to be a better turner.

We have a web site. Dan Stratton has volunteered to be the manager of the site. The site is http://swiwt.org. Be sure to check it out. Dan’s e-dress is dan@dwstratton.com

We elected Officers: President; Brian Malnar, VP/Program Coordinator; Crusty Harmon, Treasurer; Ron Hasse, Web Administrator; Dan Stratton, and News Letter; Wayne Rexford.

This month’s demo will feature Kevin Martin and his take on kaleidoscopes.

This month’s challenge is a yo-yo. This is more than an up/down and around the world project. Can be fun and beautiful.

Crusty Harmon is our program coordinator. Let him know if you want to demo or if you have a demo you want to see. We need ideas. Help us out!!

Keep the bowl exchange going. I lost my paper as to who won.

If you are getting this publication and deem it unusable to you and want it stopped, call me at 365-3476 or E me at wrexford@bigskytel.com and I will remove you from my list.

Gary Smith has suggested that we get Dick Sing for our next program turner. Dick does a lot of things. He is good. Some of my design elements are his influence.

Keep bringing your show and tell items. Makes us all better turners.

Ron Lee has offered the club a table in his “Art in the Field” event June 7th and 8th. This table will be free to club members. All other booths will be 10’ X 10’ and cost $40.00.

One of us or all of us will need an Idaho sales tax number to register our sales. Ron is looking into this matter and may have forms for us to use This event will be highly advertised and should have lots of buyer traffic. A map will be on the web site or call Ron Lee @ 573-0217.
