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

    5 Turner of the Month

    5 tickets for conducting a breakout session

    5 tickets for providing the demonstration at the monthly meeting

    5 tickets for conducting a demonstration at a Hands On meeting

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.
