Thanks to Curtis Vose, who organized the BBQ, Curtis’ wife, Oga, who cooked the chicken at home and brought those sweet Ukrainian candies, and David Yaggi, chief grill cook, we had a great BBQ in August. Thanks to Dennis Lillis for his home-grown tomato salad. More than 35 members and friends enjoyed food and fellowship with spouses and Silicon Valley Woodturners. It was even better that we had the entire picnic area of Mountain View Cuesta Park all to ourselves.
It was interesting listening to the different conversations.
One was about sanding discs, which suppliers were best and worst; but key take-away was stay with the same brand throughout your sanding project. One brand had non-uniform grits on any given disc. (I checked that out; over time I have purchased sanding discs from several sources – and yes, I agree.) But each of us has to make their own choice on sanding disc suppliers.

Each member should be able to participate in September’s President’s Challenge.
Bring your most unusual turning done between January 1, 2018 and September 11, 2018 and tell the members why it is your most unusual turning. There will
NOT be a Show and Tell,
ONLY the President’s Challenge.
Our Club is now interviewing members for the 2019 President of WBW.
We ask you to volunteer to be our next President.
Our By-Laws say we need to have our election for 2019 officers in October.
As a non-profit corporation, we
must have a President so that West Bay Woodturners can continue to exist and have monthly meetings.
