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 meeting on Tuesday 10 March a demonstration of reloading centrefire bullets will be given by Murray Jessup followed by a discussion of timbers used for gun & rifle stocks.
Formalities at Guild meetings are few and the meeting includes 'Show and Tell' where members pass around recent objects or tools they have made. Meeting nights often 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!
