    Default Doug3030's Open Shed Day for 2019

    Following on from the success of my Open Shed Day 2018 just over a week ago, we have decided to do it again in 2019.

    I am not going to set the date just yet to avoid potential clashes with other events. One possibility that I have heard is that the Melbourne TWWW Show will be moved back into October and back to the Showgrounds. That is a good thing, if it happens, but I would not want to have my Open Shed Day on the same weekend for obvious reasons.

    So at this stage all I will say is we intend to hold the day in October, after Daylight Saving has started or possibly early-to-mid November if necessary to avoid clashing with other larger events.

    Everyone who attended the 2018 event and anyone else who is interested in getting updates as they are posted, if you look above this post on the right hand side of the screen there is a toolbar with a small dropdown box called "Thread Tools". If you click on that you will see the "subscribe" option which once you have subscribed, you will get email notifications that the thread has been updated. If that is too hard, just make a post in the thread any you will be subscribed anyway.

    This year it was great to see people making new friends and talking about woodwork, helping each-other and generally enjoying the day. Hopefully 2019 will be even better.

    Good to meet you the other day Doug.
    If I'm around I like to attend but it may clash with other committments (eg IWCS meeting in Canberra in Oct).
    Please keep me posted. All the best,
    Euge

    It was good to meet you too Euge.

    As I said above I am trying to avoid clashing with other events when I set the date for the Open Shed Day. If you can let me know the dates for the IWCS meeting I can try to avoid it.

    Having said that it seems to be a busy time of the year and try as I might I am sure I will not be able to please everyone, but I can try.

    Ok after checking multiple events calendars, waiting for the new organizers of TWWWS to announce their dates for their Melbourne Show, avoiding other events that some of our potential attendees might wish to go to, waiting for the football seasons to finish and bearing in mind that it is impossible to please everyone - Lock this in to your calendars.

    Doug's Open Shed Day for 2019 will be on Sunday 6 October 2019.

    Save the date.

    6 October 2019 is a first quarter Moon at 3:47am. I wouldn't take the chance of holding it on a full moon.

    Just one of the reasons it is a week earlier this year.

    Only 15 weeks to go to the premier social event on the Melbourne Woodies Social Calendar.

    Mark your calendars if you haven't done so already.

    Sunday 6 October at my shed in Hoppers Crossing.

    Never mind WoodDust or the Timber Tools and Artisans Show, THIS is the event to be seen at.

    Who's coming?

    Thanks for asking Euge.

    I generally work out the details like that a bit closer to the event, once we get an idea of how many will be turning up.

    In previous years we have provided a sausage sizzle for lunch and people bring additional food if they so desire.

    Generally it's bring your own drinks and chairs, just to make sure we have enough chairs.

    There may be a "show and tell" and/or a timber swap and possibly other activities if there is any interest.

    The main thing is I want people to know that they do not have to bring anything if they do not want to. I don't want anyone to feel that they should not come because they can't afford to contribute.

    The rule is come if you want to, bring something or bring nothing. Either way you will be welcome and looked after and nobody will judge you.

    Turn up, be yourself, swap stories, experiences. timber or tools and have a great day.

    Thanks Doug, that's very welcoming and fair arrangement.
    I will try and be there but will confirm closer to the event. Thanks for the invitation. Look forward to seeing you again and meeting some new woodies.
