2017 December Meeting and Turning Challenges

The Christmas Social
As is usual for the Club, the December meeting is a social gathering where we bring food and drink to share, get the opportunity to chat whilst trying to figure out the answers to the devilishly hard quiz and submit our entries for the turning challenges.
The Meeting will be held at the Kegworth Village Hall, next door to the Club House, and will start at 19:00.
Barbara has a list of who is attending, the number of guests and what food are bringing food.

Competition Categories
This year we have the following categories:

  • Turning between Centres
  • Turning using a chuck
  • ‘Anything Goes’
  • The Chairman’s Challenge
  • The Charnwood Machinery Challenge

You can enter all five competitions or just a few. If you cannot make it to the social but would like to enter the competitions, you will just need to get your pieces to the club on a Hands on day, or contact Barbara.

The Chairman’s Challenge is to turn and construct an Elephant as demonstrated by Ian Ethell at the November Meeting. Details of the elephant can be found by clicking the button below:
