GCBA Monthly Meetings
GCBA normally holds regular monthly meetings on the 4th Saturday of each month (except December).
We meet at Buddy Leonard’s shop, where we feature something new from smiths with special skills. Update your personal calendar with these upcoming meeting dates:
Saturday, January 24, 2014
Saturday, February 28, 2014
Saturday, March 28, 2014
(No meeting in December)
We begin gathering 9:00 a.m., and the meeting starts at 10:00. This is a working meeting. Bring hammers and safety glasses. We also encourage you to bring along new items you have made, surplus blacksmithing tools and supplies for our Iron In The Hat auction.
Items for Iron In the Hat will be displayed on a table and bid on by a kind of silent auction or raffle. If you are interested in an item you can purchase a ticket for $1.00. You can buy as many tickets as you like and place them in the adjacent cup. After lunch the tickets for each item will be dumped in the hat and one ticket selected which wins the item. The more tickets you buy the better chance of winning the item.
There are numerous restaurants nearby. Members can bring their own lunch to eat in the shop or drive to a local restaurant for lunch of their choice.
Tool kits are available for new members to use at the meetings.
Please plan to join us. For more information, contact Tom Walker at 228-669-5983 or email - email@example.com
