Wight Woodturners

 

July 2017 BBQ

 

 

Since moving to the 1st Newport Scout Headquarters in 2014, the Wight Woodturners summer BBQ has become something of an annual “bash”. Once again Andy and Gareth, supported by their group of helpers, took care of most of the catering needs and provided our members and their guests with an enjoyable spread.  It was also a chance for the turners to “show off” their skills with an impressive Exhibition of Work. There were so many super pieces from our very able “beginners” through to our Professional Turners that we had to call in extra display tables. We hope the guests enjoyed looking at our work. This year is the 15th Anniversary of the formation of the Club and there was also a small display of photos marking events in years past.

 

Below are a few photos giving a flavour of our enjoyable evening.

 

 

As usual our Chairman Mike offered a warm welcome to guests and members

Many thanks to our cooks and all who helped make a success of the evening.

Don’t forget our Competition on 24th August

 

A turned piece incorporating at least 3 different woods

 

This can be any size
 It doesn’t have to be glued together
It doesn’t have to be segmented
Let your imagination run wild!
