SWAT Demo Room Host Needed

Are you tired of sitting in the back row of the room trying to watch a demo? Want to sit up close and not have to worry about rushing to get to the room early to save your seat? I have the solution for you. Since the beginning of SWAT (or Texas Turner or Two, if you like) GCWA has sponsored a demo room. Sponsoring a demo room requires the GCWA to provide a room host for each and every demo rotation in our room. That is a total of 9 rotations we need some volunteers to help us out. Presently we have the following opportunities open:

Friday, August 25
4:00-5:30 PM Andy Cole – Hawaiian Calabash Bowl

Saturday, August 26
10:30-Noon Jeanne Douphrate – Curves in all the Right Places.

4:00-5:30 PM Josh Reid – Crush Grind Pepper Mills

Sunday, August 27
8:00-9:30 AM Andy Cole – Sunny Side Up Egg on a Platter

If you want to have the best seat in the house come see me at this months meeting. I’ll be set up at a table in the back of the meeting room with my list of room hosts and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have as well as take you name as a volunteer.

But wait! There is more! As Demo Room Sponsors the GCWA is required to provide certain items that the demonstrators need for their demonstration. This year that list is as follows:

  • Grinder for tool sharpening with wolverine sharpening system
  • Shop Vacuum with hose and attachments
  • Broom with dust pan
  • Two (2) OneWay stronghold chucks at least one with #2 Jaws and adapter for Powermatic Lathe (1.25” x 8 TPI)1
  • Corded variable speed 3/8” power drill1
  • Flex arm Super Nova lamp with bulb1
    1Special request from Andy Cole

If you have any of these items and your name is on them (as we do for our Retreat) and you can bring them to SWAT and have them available for Friday morning’s 10:30 AM rotation PLEASE let me know. Again, I’ll be at a table in the back of the meeting room.

Thanks in advance,

Lane Bradford
