Our Chapter and our neighbouring Kerry Chapter have, over the years, developed a strong friendship and cooperation. They are having a seminar in Tralee on Saturday next, 12th September. It would be nice if as many Cork based members as possible would support it. It is an excellent programme, very reasonably priced and Seamus Cassidy is well worth seeing in action. The details are as follows:
The Kerry Chapter would like to extend an invitation to Cork Chapter members who may wish to see Seamus Cassidy in the Institute of Technology, Tralee (South Campus) on Saturday 12th September from 9.30 to 4.00.
The cost is €12 and bring your own packed lunch, tea/coffee provided, or €20 if we can guarantee 20 to 30 people wishing to avail of a hot meal which the college is prepared to provide.
The Carpentry Store is attending and this is Seamus' programme:
9.30 -11.00 4 part table lamp in walnut, maple and ebony
11.30 - 1.00 Ash, elm and ebony finial box
2.00 - 4.00 Burr elm bowl form with gold leaf and 3 steambent legs
The event is also a free 'Open Day' for new, hopefully young, interested parties, and has been advertised in the local press with a view to possibly initiating a woodturning course at the college.
Anyone can text Lesley Clarke on 0863642499 if he/she wishes to take the offer of a hot meal, but I need to know catering numbers at the beginning of the coming week.
Lesley now tells me that the meal will be available but she should be notified so that she will know the number of people partaking of it.
