Please note that the casting demo on Aug 4th has been canceled. We ran into some logistical issues with a pour of that size. A big one was our free scrap copper source dried up! We will reschedule/redesign and get back to folks.
Instead I will be doing the leaf demo that was skipped last meeting.
Also, Tamara will be doing a basic intro for new guests starting at 7:00 (before the business meeting).
The combination to the Gulf Branch forge will be changing at the July 21st meeting.
Please contact Alex Hinman (Shopmaster-in-training) to get the new combo. Per the guilds rules, your dues will need to be up to date to have shop privileges including the new combination. Please contact Tamara Taysom (membership chair) with any questions about your membership status.
I have updated the calendar with new BGOP demos and other events. This will include a demo from Caitlin Morris at the September 1st meeting. She will be doing a “Legs on Things” demo.
Also, please note that nominations for the board will opening at the September 15th meeting. Phil, Mike and Josh’s terms are up this year.
See you at the forge,
