    FVWWC Opportunities

    Fundamentals SIG Leader

    Tom Zillman our Fun SIG leader has a work conflict for our Tuesday night meetings. As a result,

    we need a member to step up and replace him for this position. Even if you are new to wood-

    working, you could lead this group. Think of the topics of interest and you will find many mem-

    bers among us who are knowledgeable and willing to share.

    Raffle Table Help Wanted

    Norm Musur is our long serving raffle czar but sometimes he has been known to depart for

    warmer climes in the winter. He would really like someone to be co-chair for the raffle. See him

    and let him know if you are ready and willing.

    Da Big Raffle!

    As mentioned last month the current raffle item is some- thing everyone can use in their shop. It is a $75.00 Woodcraft gift card. There will be not just one winner but 2 lucky ticket holders. Each will receive a $75.00 gift card. You can then go to Woodcraft and purchase that tool you have been drooling over or an accessory for a tool you already own or some supplies. Tickets for the drawing are $5 each, 3 for $10, available at the February meeting and for members only.

    Share Your Tip and Jig Ideas

    Wish you could spend a little more time at show and tell explaining your construction tips or jigs?

    Well, the show and tell time limits are necessary to make sure we give our presenters adequate

    time for their program. Still, there is another avenue left for you to express your ideas. Write an

    article for the newsletter with a couple of photos to help illustrate it. If you email it to

    woodworkers@fvwwc.org , I will be glad to include it in a future newsletter.
