The NC Woodturning Symposium Regional Symposium is coming up Nov. 3-5 at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center.

The biennial event is sponsored by North Carolina Woodturning Symposium Inc, in cooperation with clubs across the state, including WGNC. Our club will again host one of the rooms and we will need volunteers to help support the demonstrators and handle the video cameras. See member Gene Presson if you are interested in volunteering.

There will be 7 simultaneous demonstrations at each of 9 rotations over the three days so you will be able to choose from a total of 63 rotations. This will give you an opportunity to see the demonstrations you desire. We are happy to present 6 featured and 8 regional demonstrators.

Featured Demonstrators include: Graeme Priddle & Melissa Engler, Kip Christensen, Beth Ireland, Rudolph Lopez, Jason Schneider, Derek Weidmanand Cynthia Gibson. Regional Demonstrators this year are: Harvey Meyer, Mark Gardner, Mark St. Leger, Scarlette Rouse. Dennis Belcher, Bob Schassse and John Walsh.

Registration for the event is $175 before Oct. 1, or $120 for Saturday only, or $75 for just Friday or Sunday. After this month the rates go up. You can register here.

Still more detail about the event is available on the symposium web site.
