Thursday is a "hands-on" day. There will be collaborative efforts, one on one, group demos by poplar demand, repeat demos, and lots of fun, and who know what else.

Auction: selected items will be auctioned at 7pm Thursday. We will have a certified auctioneer to conduct the auction. There may be a limit on how many items can be put into the auction. Hopefully, the more experienced turners can pay for their trip by auctioning a piece or two. For those who are still climbing the skill ladder and are not ready to enter a judged event, there will be a table where you can sell your items. Caution: you may be black-mailed at a later date by the pieces you sell.

Come have fun! The only cost is a voluntary donation jar to help cover the food costs. Vendor booths are also free.
