Board of Directors Meetings will be the Second Thursday of each month
Our Next Meeting
Sunday November 18th 1 PM – 4 PM
801 Butler St, Unit 19
The November meeting will be held at Don Robertson's shop. Bob Orcutt will be demonstrating the Norse Viking Axe. He learned how to make this by participating in TBG's Scholarship Program and taking a class with the funds. Since the demo will take a full day, it will happen on Saturday the 17th starting at 8:00 am and if time allows there may be an opportunity to forge. The meeting will be on Sunday the 18th. On Sunday hot dogs and crock pot chilli will be provided so please bring a side dish and don't forget to bring an item for the Iron in the Hat raffle.
November will be the time to make nominations for the Board of Directors. If you choose to nominate anyone please check with them first to make sure they are interested. Voting will happen at the December Christmas party meeting.
2nd Wednesday each month is Open Forge, 6PM to 9PM at Don Robertson's Shop
