BAT Holiday Party Details


The December Baltimore Area Turners club meeting will be our annual holiday party and is coming up this Wednesday, December 13th. Family members and friends are welcome! It will take place in our usual meeting room at Boumi Temple located at 5050 King Avenue in Rosedale.

Couple of items to note:

WHAT TO BRING - BAT will supply cold cut platters, cold salads, drinks and all paper goods. Members are asked to bring along a side dish or desert to share. Large quantities aren’t needed – just enough to cover whoever will be coming with you plus another 3 -4 people.

PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD - Bring a piece you turned this past year and enter it into the People's Choice Award contest. Prizes will be awarded based on votes cast by your fellow members.

GIFT EXCHANGE – Not mandatory, but if you would like to bring along a wrapped gift to enter into the gift exchange, please do so. Maximum value of $10, and handmade items are always welcome.

NO WOOD RAFFLE - This month there's no wood raffle, so don’t bring anything this time. If you have something, save it for January, that will be perfect. Wood does not spoil!

PRESIDENTS CHALLENGE PIECES – Last chance to catch up for the year! We’d also like for everyone to bring along the ones they have made throughout the year so we can have another look at the fine craftsmanship that has been demonstrated over the past 12 months. As a reminder, the six items included:
-something elliptical
-3-4 legged stool
-something with a natural edge
-lidded box
-holiday ornament
-something segmented or laminated

WOODWORKING SHOW - The show signup list will be available. The show is coming up January 5– 7 at the Timonium Fairgrounds and BAT will be there and demonstrating. We need turners and folks to talk to interested attendees, so please fill in a slot or two. If you want to turn at the show, you need to be a member of AAW for insurance purposes.

2018 DUES - can also be paid this week. The total for 2018 will be $25.00 each, payable by cash or check

BEADS OF COURAGE BOWLS – In the spirit of this being the season of giving, please bring along any completed Beads of Courage bowls you may have created. We have a direct conduit to deliver them to the folks at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, and they are always most appreciated.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday.
