Upcoming 2018 GCBA Meetings
March 24, 2018 GCBA Meeting at John Perilloux’s New Shop
The March meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the new shop John Perilloux is building in Robert, Louisiana. The shop is on the corner of Hwy 445 and Chappepeela Road, approximately 3.5 miles north of the Hwy 190 and Hwy 445 intersection. If it has not rained, parking will not be an issue. Otherwise, parking will be figured out once we get there. The shop is presently a slab with a roof. There will be limited electrical power and a port-a-potty on hand.
Mr. Dennis Rohner will be cooking up a fantastic lunch at $5.00 per person. Soft drinks and water will be available for free, as we do not want anyone getting dehydrated. Mr. Sid Gale will be manning the display table this month to display and explain joinery tools.
The Board of Directors will be holding a meeting at 9am to discuss new policies. Mr. Charles Polk has received a $600 scholarship to attend Lyle Wynn’s Tools to Make Tools class in June. Additionally, we will have a jar for anyone wishing to provide additional scholarship funds to assist in offsetting the cost for Mr. Polk’s class.
We need experienced blacksmiths to volunteer for demonstrations and to assist with teaching. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Please contact Sid Gale at email@example.com to volunteer.
As always, Ed Lott will be collecting the $25 annual membership fee and will have the sales table set up with GCBA items. Please bring any items you are willing to donate for Iron in the Hat, which funds the Buddy Leonard Scholarship.
