Shire Woodworking Club – October 2017 Newsletter

Shire Woodworking Club – October 2017 Newsletter posted below.

Unfortunately 2 long time members passed away in the last month, Alan Davis hadn’t been able to make it for a long time but Ray Schofield was only around 2 months ago.

Ray was the next youngest member when I joined so I knew him quite well as he was only a few years older than me. His brain tumour operation a couple of years ago seemed to have been a success but unfortunately it returned aggressively.   

Newsletter mainly focused on the Plank Competition; I missed second place by 1 point – bummer!

As you can see there was a mixture of entries; the fact that it was toy related and only half a plank certainly made quite a difference and leveled the field somewhat.

Photo of the attendees for publicity; we had the Federal MP, State MP and Sutherland Shire Council Mayor visit on the day. Of course they all had something to say! 

Good article on the latest delivery to the Sydney Children’s Hospital on 26th September of 400 items.

Great photos as usual by Barry Gardner
