Hi members

I'm happy to announce an actual face to face event, a summer BBQ that my wife Cyndi and I are planning for Saturday August 7th, 2021. We're setting the time as 2pm to 6pm but maybe we won't kick you out if you brought something good to eat!  Members +1 are welcome. 

We are located at 139 Europa Blvd, Cherry Hill, NJ, 08003.

This is our first time hosting this, but I understand the club provides basic foods like hot dogs and hamburgers, along with setup type things, and members bring side dishes, beverages, and deserts. 

Although we have a bunch of chairs, and will set up some tables and two cabana's, it would be helpful if people bring along folding/camping chairs just in case. If you can bring along a portable table, please let us know.


For coordination, please RSVP and discuss what you want to bring on email <treasurer@delvalturners.com>.  If at all possible, an RSVP by August 1st would be appreciated. We look forward to seeing you all!

One more thing to mention, while we would expect most of our members are likely vaccinated, if you are not, or prefer to be cautious regardless, please wear a mask. If you wish to discuss any issues concerning safety, please reach out via email. Much of the event will likely be outside with lots of fresh air, but in the event of rain, we will likely set a rain date on the 14th or the 21st, pending a final decision. If it looks like rain on the 7th, look for a follow up notice via mailchimp.

MEETINGS:

 

DelVal Turners meets virtually using Zoom on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Meeting topics include show and tells, demonstrations, and discussions on various turning related subjects, such as tool sharpening, sanding, finishing, chucks, jigs, marketing your crafts etc. New members are encouraged to contribute new ideas to help create an interesting and challenging program. Our demonstrations are most often given by nationally and internationally renowned turners and artists.

 

MEETING TIME AND PLACE:

 

Our meetings start at 7PM and take place virtually using the Zoom conference service. 

 

OTHER EVENTS: Philip Hauser runs a great hands on open house at his workshop on the  3rd Tuesday of each month. The open house is an informal setting where members discuss different issues such as tool use, tool sharpening,  wood preparation, and turning techniques. Phil and other members often demonstrate these techniques. See Member's Area for Phil's contact information. 

Due to Covid 19 restrictions Phil has suspended the open house. 

 

 

FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES:

 

A 50/50 raffle is conducted during most meetings to augment the club’s finances. We also run Hands on Workshops (HOWs)  once each year,  taught by  volunteer experienced members of the club in their homes. Various specialties are covered.

 

DEMONSTRATIONS:

 

The club invites some of the best woodturners in the world to demonstrate at our club meetings. Woodturners freely share their skills with all, thus providing novice to expert turners with a

wealth of information. 

 

OTHER BENEFITS:

 

The club will often offer information about wood that has become available and tools for sale. We also inform members of different woodturning events in the area and upcoming symposiums. 

 

MEMBERSHIP AND DUES:

 

Membership is open to all interested in woodturning. Annual dues are $ 25.00 per person. Dues are valid  for the  calendar year starting January 1st.  Dues for the half year of July to December are $12.50 per person. 

 

Members are strongly  encouraged to join the American Association of Woodturners. It publishes a great quarterly magazine about woodturning and an annual directory of members and resources and it organizes annual symposiums. The AAW offers liability insurance for all club organized activities to AAW members.  Click here for Membership
