Raul is having another “President’s Challenge” to be judged in December, 2013. Details will be sent out this month. It will be a project made from a 2 inch by 4 inch board that is 8 feet long. The board may be of any species you choose, but the project should use at least 50% of the wood. The project is to promote craftsmanship and design.
The registration fee to participate will be $10.00 and there must be at least six participants by September 30, 2013 in order to proceed. So far 3 have signed up for the challenge. Prizes will be $100.00 for first place, $50.00 for second place and $25.00 for third place.

A club or organization is only as good as what the membership puts into it and Joe has certainly done his best to make our club look good. Please keep this in mind when Joe asks for volunteers to help him with the promotion of our organization. (more…)
