I would just like to comment on how well the SATurn weekend was run.
it is a credit to organisers we had a lot of fun catching up with every one.
the meal were excellant and the company great.
some of the item turned for the challenge were brilliant especially considering the time it took to make the articles.
any one who has the chance to attend one should do so as they will not be dissapionted .
once agian a great week end

I too had a great weekend. How could you not. One of the best of this style of live-in woodturning weekends. If you have ever entertained the thought of going to SATurn but haven't, make plans to go in 2012; their 14th.

What they said.... great weekend!

As I first timer I felt most welcomed.

These events are a great way to do things that you haven't done yet or don't normally get to do. There is always someone there who is willing to share their expertise with you. I attempted to befriend the skew again, with the usual entertaining (for others) results....:rolleyes:

Thanks also to the generous prize and raffle sponsors (Woodfast, MacWood, Carbatec, Brendan Stemp and Tim Skilton, don't think I've left anyone out). Us first timers did quite well from that... :)

Having been to SAturn and YouTurn now, I can recommend both.
