Show and Share

Bob compared 2 tables that he had made to demonstrate differences and illustrate the golden ratio – lots of questions from members. Great opportunity for comparison of similar projects and format for meetings with programs of short (15-20 mins) member presentations.

Year End Challenge

Our year-end challenge was to use 1 piece of rough 2×4

There were two gift card prizes for this special challenge. Members in attendance were asked to choose their two favourites and it was a very close race.  In fact, a tie-breaker vote was required for second place.

Congratulations to the winners :

  • 1st place: Gary – $50 gift card and reference book
  • 2nd place: Walt – $25 gift card
  • Honorable mention: Bob


Next Meeting
