Meeting items for Jan 17, 2009
Give some thought to these things before the meeting. I like to take a look at what we are doing every so often to be sure we are doing the best for ourselves.

20 members in MN!
Should we meet every 2 months instead of every 3 months?
Should we have a more formal format?
Would you like longer meetings? Some chapters meet quarterly for 2 days.
What do you want to see demonstrated at a meeting? What would you demonstrate?
Can someone make a list of events that might interest members? Would anyone want to demonstrate at any of these events?
Does anyone have a suggestion for field trips? ( Bart volunteered to head this up)
Should we be more involved with the museum?
Should we plan for a show? Should we all try to show at the MNWWG show?
Would anyone like to meet and build a piece together?
Should we go 12:30 to 3:30 in out meetings with more demonstrations? Hands on workshops?

8:30 door opens, come on in!
9:00 to 9:30 - show and tell, socialize
9:30 to 9:45 - business
9:45 to 12:00 – demonstrations
