On Saturday, August 20, we’ll be gathering at Val and Laura Matthews place at 1PM for the annual picnic and tool auction. This is a combined Northwest Corner Woodworkers Association and Northwest Washington Woodturners event, and has become somewhat of a tradition over the years. Val and Laura have ample parking and space for this, and all you have to do is show up with a side dish (salad, dessert or whatever), something cool to drink, and a lawn chair or two. Normally, we eat about 3 PM and close the bidding for the auction at around 4 PM. Don’t forget to bring your significant other and something to sit on. The two clubs provide the burgers, hotdogs, brats, fixings, paper plates, plastic ware and napkins.
