Annual General Meeting
Members our AGM will be held on Saturday 6th October 10am start, with a BBQ (sausage sizzle) afterwards. Nominations for the Board must be handed to the Secretary prior to the start of General Meeting on the 2nd of October. These forms will be available at the club, from the August General Meeting.
Timber Stored in Containers
Members who have wood in the Containers, please pay for it and take it home. To those who have already done so, thankyou
Duty Officers for Tuesdays and Saturdays
Members we are in desperate need of some more Duty Officers, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The ideal situation would be to have 2 persons each morning, so if one can not be at the club the other one can.
Your duties are to open up the club each morning, ensure that all members comply with the club rules and work in a safe manner, are assessed and passed on the equipment which they are using. Check that dust extractors don’t need to be emptied. If they do, get other members to give you a hand to empty . Then at the end of the day make sure the club is locked up and the alarm set. If you contact Max Perez or John Reid with your name the day you wish to assist, if we get 8-10 names you will only be required once a month. To those members who have been duty officers in the past and don’t want to continue please return your front door key to Steve Bell and have your name removed from the key Book. Members if we cant get enough Duty Officers we may have to shut the club on the days we have no Duty Officers. We have 140 members who could help out surely we can get 10 -18 to keep the club open for all our members to use our facilities.
Members are reminded that they need to be signed off on the machine they intend to use. If you haven't completed the training on the machine DO NOT USE IT. Certification training is available during the Hands On Meeting.
Here are some pictures of the Club's volunteers, led by the indefatigable Bill Wright, collecting a Peppercorn tree from New Lambton Heights. Thanks to all who helped. These volunters managed to get 3 Silky oak logs plus this one all in one morning which will add significantly to the Clubs stock of milling logs. These mainly older Members would love to hear from some of our younger members who could join in these activities. See Bill Wright if you can help.

New Format for Hands On
On Tuesday the 16th May the Hands On will take on a different format. We are asking members to bring in a piece they are working on or something they want to make such as a pen, vase, candle stick, bowl etc.
Members can then offer advice or help with the project.
Hope to see you there 6.00 pm start. Shop will also be open.

Safety and Competence Training
Members are reminded that Tablesaw and Drum Sander competence is best learned "on the Job" in a
boxmaking course. Not only will you learn to use these tools correctly and safely, but you can make
a great item for the Club to sell at the markets.
Ian, Greg, Richard and Steve will be pleased to give you the benefit of their vast experience.
