Our Club Library
Our club library is available to our members to check out DVD's and other material.
The library is maintained by our Librarian and is open at our meetings. Material may
be checked out by our members and returned the following meeting. The contents
of the library primarily are DVD's of previous meeting demonstrations and a collection
of Professional DVD's that the club has purchased. To access a table of available DVD's
click on one of the following pages.
Our Instant Gallery
At each meeting an area is provided for members to bring some of their recently turned items.
All members are encouraged to participate in the instant gallery. It provides an opportunity for
us to learn from each other. New turners can bring their work to discuss and get help from others.
Our Monthly Raffle
Our monthly raffle is a time when members can bring items to contribute to the raffle and purchase
tickets to the raffle for a chance to get an item someone else has brought. Items typically found in
our raffle consist of wood for turning, various tools, books etc. Members can purchase red tickets for
$1 each or 6 for $5. A red ticket half is placed in a cup in front of the item of interest from which a winning
ticket is drawn. All money from the raffle goes to assist the club in bringing in outside demonstrators
and to purchase tools and equipment for the club.
Our Club Store
Our club store enables us to purchase items in volume with only one shipping charge so we can
provide the convenience and a little better deal for our members. These items are available at
our Treasurers table at each meeting.
Our Year End Drawing
We have a drawing for prizes at our Christmas Party at our December meeting. To be eligible
for that drawing our members can place a yellow ticket in the box at the meetings. Eligibility for
the yellow ticket is as follows:
1 ticket each time you bring items for the Instant Gallery
1 ticket for bringing an item for the Presidents Challenge
1 ticket each time you donate items to the Raffle

Turner of the Month
The Turner-of-the Month agrees to donate one of their turned pieces to the monthly raffle. This provides
an opportunity to share your work and an opportunity for other members to buy raffle tickets for
a chance to own a piece turned by one of our members.
