Big events coming up

If you haven’t been following the St. Petersburg Woodcrafters Guild recently, have we ever been busy!  In fact, on January 25, members of the guild were on hand at Heritage Village doing some woodworking, talking up the guild and showing a new generation of woodworkers how it’s done.

Showing some new woodworkers how toIf you missed that, don’t sweat it. There are lots of opportunities coming up to get involved.

March 21 – 23: The Woodworking Shows come to the State Fairgrounds in Tampa. We will be there to take in the sights and sounds, and maybe to see if some members might be interested in bringing some completed projects of their own to show off.

April 22: At this Guild meeting, we will be judging entries in the 2014 2 x 4 contest.  Basically, you build something from a standard-issue Home Center 2 x 4, and the winners will get some fabulous prizes!

May 17: Join us for the Guild Picnic at Lake Seminole Park. We will be there from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Look for more details as we get closer to the date.

November 25: Sure, this is a little out into the future, but this is the meeting where we will judge the entries into the annual Green Challenge, where the idea is to build projects from re-purposed lumber. This has proven to be a fun event, and we look forward to seeing the entries this year.

Remember, you get out of the guild what you put into it. So, if you want to really amp up your guild experience, be sure to ask about volunteer opportunities at our next meeting – 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25.  See you there!
