Monthly Guild meetings are held at our workshop or in a classroom at Cosgrove High School on the second Tuesday of each month commencing at 7:00pm and concluding by 8.30 - 9:00pm. At the July meeting on Tuesday 9th members will receive a refresher by St Johns Ambulance on use of the Club defibrillator.
Formalities are few and the meeting includes 'Show and Tell' where members pass around recent objects or tools they have made. Most meeting nights also include a demonstration of woodwork, tools or machinery, or demonstration DVDs of interest.
A BBQ is held prior to meetings commencing at 5:30pm, just bring your meat, drinks etc and meet some members, everyone is welcome!
