As the new year begins we are looking for volunteers to host Breakout Sessions. Hosting a Breakout is a great way to spend a few hours or a whole day and to help support our club.

The host chooses the topic, day and time, so if you have a particular technique, turning interest or would like to just host an open turning session with other turners for a few hours it would be much appreciated. Hosting is open to all skill levels so don't be shy about volunteering. Some topics to consider are, spindle & bowl turning, proper tool technique, shop safety, wood selection, finishing/embellishing, sanding, design, pens, boxes, shop lighting ,dust collection and the list goes on and on.

Our local Woodcraft has offered their shop/class room to us for Breakouts so if you feel your shop/turning area is not large enough Woodcraft's shop may be the answer. Their shop has lathes, table saw, band saw etc. In addition our club has six lathes, chucks and coring system that that can also be used for Breakouts at a host's shop. If you would like to host a Breakout any time throughout the year contact Bob Aumock the breakout coordinator through the club address, This email address is being protected from spambots.

"I would like to thank the club members who hosted Breakouts in 2015," Bob noted. "Breakouts are very rewarding to both the hosts and the attendees and are a great way to have fun while supporting the club. Without volunteer hosts there would be no Breakout Sessions ! Thanks again for your time, energy and club enthusiasm in making Breakouts happen."
