November’s demo didn’t go just like I had planned. 2 of you came up afterwards and gave me some timely advice. One was the direction I was driving my drive center was causing the wood to split and the other was the attack on Mary’s head after being offset. I made those two changes and made two Marys in about 20 minutes that were perfect. I really do try to listen. There was also a discussion on safety that I need to address later. I really try to be safe but I know I push the envelope to the edge.

We have a web site. Dan Stratton has volunteered to be the manager of the site. Be sure to check it out.

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