    It would be really, really cool if a few of you had time before or after the 2018 Symposium in Portland to come by either our AAW chapter or BARN to demo or give a workshop. Both have funds and financing. The chapter depends on me to bring in "fresh blood":eek: and BARN has the potential for a truly robust turning program, and welcomes people from far and wide to conduct classes, workshops and "Great Room" demos. I'm cranking out novice turners as fast as I can, and there are more advanced students also. BARN works because members are highly motivated and enthusiastic.

    So, if you have wiggle-room in your schedule and think you could spend a night, a few, or several, in the Greater Seattle area, please let me know -- respond here, or shoot me a private message via "conversation".

    I'm serious about this!:p

    The lathes are behind the kayak-building area, 5 lathes plus buffing, includes a PM, a Nova DVR, two Jet 1221's and a 1236 (hoping to replace the 1236 with a big hoss next year).

    Addendum: There are five AAW chapters within an hours drive/ferry ride from Seattle, and I'm connected with all the program directors.

    Coming to Seattle might be a possibility this spring or summer. Our oldest grandson played baseball with the Arkansas Travelers this past season. We are waiting to see where he will land in 2018. The Mariners' AAA team is the Tacoma Rainiers. He will know what and where this coming year as to who he signs with and where he will be taking spring training.
