I can't put it any better than Jamie did on our MeetUp announcement so took the easy way out and copied her work!  Our Christmas party is tomorrow evening and it should be another great one.  I mean, how can you go wrong with food, contests, drawings, and the company of other woodworkers?  If you're not on the MeetUp list and want to you can follow this LINK to get there.  There should be a "Join Us" button that will allow you to join.  

See you tomorrow -- John

  • Reserve next Wednesday for our annual Sin City Woodworkers Holiday Get-Together, where we’ll celebrate a productive year and toast the coming New Year. 
    Sin City Woodworkers, a Vegas valley social and networking group committed to serious (and not so serious!) woodworking discussions, meet on the third Wednesday of each month to share everything from techniques and ideas, to information about local suppliers and much more. Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 17, at 7:00. We’ll be providing some munchies and libations, and - as usual - feel free to bring a guest!  And if you so desire -  bring a dish to share! (No sawdust cookies, though!)
    They say that Las Vegas is a tough city to make friends in - but anyone who attends one of our monthly meetings knows that we’ve formed some great connections within our group. We’re heading into our sixth year of sharing tips and techniques, failures and successes, and best of all - new friendships.
    This year’s celebration features our Chopped challenge - a woodworking contest where each entry has to include four basic items -  four board feet  of wood, a dowel, some inclusion of brass (be it hardware, fasteners or whatever!) and a miscellaneous material of the builder’s choice. We’re giving out cash prizes this year - and as a teaser….  I can assure you there are some excellent entries in this year’s contest. First prize is $100 - you can't beat that with a stick! (Or a board!)
    If you’re a dues paying member, or if you’ve given the main presentation at one of our meetings during the year, your name in is the drawing to win cash prizes this year. Hey - it’s Vegas - CASH IS KING! In the past, we’ve given out Lee Valley gift certificates in our membership drawng, but this year, we’re going GREEN. As in - Benjamins and Grants!
    By the way - if you have something to donate to the drawing,  please bring it with you to our party.  Maybe someone gave you a woodworking book that you already own, or have some duplicate items sitting around your shop - we will add  your donations to our giveaway table. 
    We hope you can make it! As always, this meeting will be held at Studio: Wood It Is!, 2267 West Gowan, unit 106 in North Las Vegas. As always, the public is welcome to attend the meeting, but remember -  there are a limited number of chairs in the woodshop. Attendees might want to bring a folding chair if they wish to sit during the meeting. If you have questions or need directions, call the studio at 631-1870.
