Presidents Message
Dear Woodturners,
We have had another successful meeting of the Las Vegas Woodturners and I appreciate all those that attended.  I really enjoyed doing the demonstration of end grain boxes so this becomes the Learn and Turn activity for the month of April.  Remember there is no restriction to size and design.  The only requirement is that it mostly a turning.  Bring it with you for Show and Tell next month to receive credit for participation.  This is the second project out of six that we will have this year.  Remember that you must complete 5 of the 6 projects to be considered for a gift certificate at the end of the year.  
A club like ours does not run by itself and we are in need of help at this time.  Specifically we need a videographer who will record the demonstrations and transfer those demonstrations to video tape.  We also need a person to coordinate the raffle. Please consider helping and supporting your associate turners.  Please contact me through email at turn4fun@gmail.com.
As announced at the meeting we are participating with Clark County Library again this year for an exhibit at one of their libraries.  This year we would like participation from all skill levels of turners. We will display your work according to your selected skill level.  This is a good opportunity to promote woodturning in the valley and for you to gain valuable experience in an exhibition.  Please do not hesitate to start now planning on what you will bring. The items must be turned in for exhibit at the June meeting of the Las Vegas WoodTurners.  
Finally, the president’s challenge, a juried challenge, is being posted this week on the Las Vegas Woodturners website, www.LasVegaswoodturners.com.  The competition is open  to all skill groups and the winner in each skill group will receive a nice prize after the fourth challenge.
Thanks again to our hosts, Gerri and Christian, from Woodworkers Emporium for providing our meeting place.  Please repay them with your patronage.
Remember, Less Talk more Shavings…
Brent Ross
President, Las Vegas Woodturners Association
P.S.  After much consideration and discussion, we will discontinue the newsletter in favor of providing a report each month on our website at www.lasvegaswoodturners.com  You will occasionally receive an email announcement if it is timely and you will continue to receive reminders of the meeting.
