    Default Watcha Dooen in Dooen 2018 ... Australia Day Weekend

    Jerilderie Jaunt and Watcha Dooen at Dooen? This is my 5th anniversary and we are shaking things up a little bit.

    Fri 26 Jan
    Sat 26 Jan
    Sun 28 Jan

    To start off this year will be a tribute to our dearly departed Reploconics aka Trev or Trevor Jones. He may be gone but his spirit lives on!

    Something else different. On the Friday of that the GTG I have opened it up to home educated (home schoolers as some may call them) children. The intent here is for each child to be able to do a short project ranging between 30 - 90 minutes. Kids will range from 5 to their teens. At this stage I have had expressions of interest for more than 40 kids over the period of the day

    Your help ... if you are willing to work with a child for a project that would be greatly appreciated. This is a fine oppurtunity to introduce a new generation to the wonders of woodwork. I would ask if possible for those that are willing could you bring what is needed to do projects with 5 to 10 children. If you need to reimbursed cost of materials we can make that known to the parents what each project will cost for materials. You are welcome and invited to bring your own tools and projects. If you do not wish to do a project with a younger person that is fine, you are still welcome for all three days.

    So far everyone who came last year has indicated they are coming and happy to work with the a young person. That said there may be one or two who cant make it but things change so we will see what happens

    As usual the rest of the time will be a make up demonstrations and the regular banter. Bring your family too.

    That places it a little over 400 km w / sw of the Jerilderie for those who came when it was there.



    It is about 1/2 way between Adelaide and Melbourne on the northern edge of Horsham.



    Not for the faint hearted, the property is still a little rough when it comes to living quarters. I do hope to have some green grass this time round

    There is a shed and will be at least 4 lathes on hand to use. The shed has changed from below.



    For anyone who wants to rough it there is plenty of room for a swag, tent or caravan.

    If you want to or can demonstrate anything over the event please let me know either on here or by PM

    What will be

    show and tell
    Buy, swap, sell & give away
    A yarn or three
    Food, food and more food
    Oppurtunity to use or learn on a lathe

    Oldgreybeard may give some photograpgy and photoshop lessons
    If Maureen comes she will likely bring her spinning wheel
    Raechell will have her dolls and be happy to show anyone interested

    Demo's and Lessons
    Plans are to have a morning and afternoon demonstration each of the three days. This is seperate to crafting demo's which may appeal mainly to the women.
    I hope to have the following same as last year in general terms though specifics may change
    1) Production Turning
    2) Finishing
    3) Box making Incra Jig.
    4) Thread Chasing

    Open to other suggestions here above and below

    In the crafting section
    1) Pyrography
    2) Painting (dolls making)
    3) Hair Rooting (doll making)
    4) Spinning Yarn


    What to bring

    Anything for the above
    A chair
    A wood working project/s to do or show off
    Metal working as well if so inclined
    Areo guard and a hat
    Some of your work

    Scrap Heap Challenge if anyone wants to have a go. Warning ... I did burn a lot so pile has shrunk to Raechell's delight.

    There is a heap of fire wood and cut branches as well as sheet material & scrap metal etc. The challenge to make something from that heap. What ever is made must be minimum 90 % from that heap and the scrap metal heap.



    Accommodation

    links copied from last year, hopefully still work

    Horsham will provide the greatest range and closest accommodation for those who do not wish to rough it. This is a wotif link but feel free to look up locations by other means
    https://www.wotif.com/Hotel-Search#d...ria,+Australia


    The house would be on offer but not sure where I will be with the Reno's

    Any demos or workshops are more than welcome as would be a lesson on how to use a mill or metal lathe.

    Please let us know your level of interest in attending.

    Food Similar to last year

    Thursday night there will be a BBQ for whoever is there was a pleasant evening last year I think we had close to a dozen.

    Breakfast

    Cereal
    Toast
    Bacon & Eggs
    Baked beans

    Lunch

    Sandwiches
    Rolls
    Pies and Pasties
    Hot Dogs

    Tea

    BBQ
    Spaghetti Bolognaise

    Drinks

    Tea
    Coffee
    Water
    Juice
    Soft Drink
    You are welcome to bring alchol, please drink in moderation and not if you will be using tools



    There is a pub virtually next door for any who want to go and get a couner meal (at your own expense). Not encouraging a booze up but likely will be a drink or two in the evening for any who BYO

    If you have special dietary needs you can bring your own or let me know and if I can I will accommodate.

    If you want to bring anything to contribute to the supplies you are welcome to do so. As some are travelling some distance this is by no means expected.

    Life has a way of throwing all sorts of challnges at us. If you cant afford to contribute finacially or with provisions dont be put off, come anyway.

    For those who want to donate a few $$ there will be a tin or jar somewhere. I dont need to know who did or didn't donate or how much. Just come and have a good time.

    So far I have never been much out of pocket thanks to the generosity of those who do choose to support the event. On the Friday with potentially many more vistors things will take more planning.

    Looking forward to another great weekend .

    Smoking, I am not a smoker but others are. As for previous years please be mindful of your butts. The big one here is with kids around can we be mindful to avoid smoking around them while we doing a project with them

    I will ask her, Dave.

    I will also see what I can come up with for something to do with the kids.

    We will most likely spend the nights with our friends in Horsham as we have done in previous years, but if not we can drag a tent along.

    Cheers

    Hi Dave,

    I wont be available to come to the GTG.

    Iím was going to pm you but your box was full as Iím concerned for people teaching if they or you donít have insurance and a child gets injured at your event.
    Also have you or othersconsidered the working with children legislation in Victoria?
    http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/home/about+the+check/who+needs+a+check
    not suggesting that I know everything so you would need to seek advice. The above suggested in the spirit of the forum and not trying to push the nanny state agenda as you put your and other kids first and foremost.
    Any way hope it goes well
    Paul

    If you look here: Do I need a Check? - Working With Children Check, Victoria

    The first question of the self assessment: In which capacity are you working with or caring for children*?

    The answer in this case would be: I
    n an unpaid
    private/domestic capacity*


    * Arrangements or agreements that exist between family and friends.

    This response returns the answer:
    You do not need a WWC Check.


    Nobody is being paid and it is a private social gathering at which parents or guardians of the children will be present anyway.

    Cheers

    Doug

    Count me in too, hope to get there Thursday afternoon/night to help with doing what ever's required.

    Will probably get the kids to do scroll sawing of Beetle games for themselves, pretty sure I've a few stacks left over.
    How are you off for Pen Blanks???
    Will you be holding a raffle or some such fund raising???

    Thanks Paul. Appreciate your interest and your desire to look out for everyone.

    My understanding is as stated ny Doug for working with children.

    Insurance is increasingly becoming an issue. I wilk try and find out about the Victorian woodworkers insursnce or what ever it is called. I believe they insure younfor public liability and teaching upto 3 people at once. Personally I habe no such insurance but skme atrending may want to get some as should I.

    Sounds good Kryn. Yes I have blanks but light on for pen kits. Might see if I can get some.

    G'Day Dave,
    Not sure about this year, we have a grandchild due in early January which from all accounts will need a operation to correct a heart issue once born.
    It would be great to see everyone again BUT family always comes first.
    Cheers, Peter

    Does the home schooling come with any sort of insurance cover that might oversee this type of activity?
