Thanks to everyone who helped make this years Turn A Thon the best yet!!

On Saturday November 10th our club held our 4th annual turn for the troops event. We had a very good turn out from our club members with many of them turning more then 10 pens. The day started with coffee and donuts, then the saw dust began to fly. A few hours into the event the local Boy Scout troop arrived. For many of them this was there first experience working on a lathe. It was great to see the younger generation learning from our club members. Most of them naturals with a soft touch and an eye for detail, the Scouts made some great pens. The turning continued through lunch and into the afternoon, continually cranking out pens. The event started to wind down around 3:30pm with many club members starting clean up. At 4pm the sign’s came down and another successful turn a thon in the past. Again thanks to everyone for there support! It was a great event. We turned out 110 pens!

We look forward to next years event. With idea’s to make it even better. Including, a raffle, door prizes and a special give away for club members.
