Last night I enjoyed my first meeting with the guys and gals of the San Fernando Valley Woodworkers club. I can honestly say that I was amongst friends! I don't think that in recent years I've had the pleasure to have been amongst such a funny, giving, warm friendly and funny (wait, did I say that twice) group of people...
I met Steve Sampietro in a grocery store; he noticed my Mark Newton Custom Woodcraft t-shirt and introduced himself. He told me all about the club and honestly, It was exactly what I needed, a chance to meet some guys with a similar passion for woodcraft...
Thanks for that one Steve.....
I'll definitely be joining and I cant wait to be there next month...
Meetings are well organised and include:
A Q&A on anything members want to ask about
Information about local wood work related swap meets and events
Competitions, prizes, Raffles, more prizes
A show and tell where members get to bring in their work and talk about it
There's even an 'Annual Toy Build' where literally hundreds of wooden toys are made for under privileged children. WOW!
Ultimately, it's just a great way to go hang out with the guys and talk about woodworking which, lets be honest, we love to do and our wives love to have us do SOMEWHERE ELSE Right?
