Happy New Year,
Normally I do not make a lot of resolutions at this time of year, but in 2018 I hope to significantly upgrade my turning skills. And to do that I am planning to make all 11 meetings of the Magnolia Woodturners this year.
So I'm asking you to join me. Go ahead today and mark every 3d Saturday through November to join us for some excellent demonstrations, fellowship and other opportunities.
There are several good reasons to make Magnolia Woodturners a priority this year: 1. We are planning some great programs; 2. We have one of the best facilities of any club around (I know it's a drive, but it is comfortable, clean, air conditioned and with built in AV equipment); and 3. We all benefit from the relationships and from learning from each other.

Our first two demonsgtrators are set: Jan. 20 will be Breck Whitworth of Ocean Springs (Lighthouse Woodturners), and on Feb. 17 it will be Jim Creel of Hammond (Bayou Woodturners). Breck will demon 2-piece hollow forms; Jim is to be determined.
Both are not only excellent turners but also are professional demonstrators.

We are making plans for other demos, special projects and generally a good time, so I hope you will make plans to attend, and to contribute. We all learned a long time ago that the more you put into something the more you will get from it.

I look forward to seeing each of you during the coming year.

Joe Dove
