Turn Out Sept 2021


The Chesapeake Woodturners annual picnic will be at Lou Rudinski's place again this year, starting at 11:30 a.m. on Sept 18th. Lou’s place is located in Kinder Farm Park, off Jumpers Hole Road. The address is: 146 GALI SANCHEZ ROAD, 21108. As you enter the park, turn left before the Gatehouse, proceed past all the sports fields to the last parking lot, and look for signs to park on the lawn area behind the brick house.

This time it looks like we will have a tent in case it rains.

The club will provide grill items will including hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages, chicken, and the buns to go with them. The club will supply ice, plates, cups, plasticware and condiments.


We ask that each attendee bring items for 6 - 8 people based on the table below.


Last Name Starts with Item to Bring

A - H Sodas/water

I - Q Dessert

R - Z Side Dish

We will have a short business meeting and Show and Tell. We will have a table set up to display the Show and Tell items. Bring your latest masterpiece and be prepared to talk about it.

Also, we will have the contest for the best Beads of Courage Box. Prize for the winner is $50, so don’t forget to enter.


Once again, we will have the renowned Chesapeake Woodturners raffle. Here is how it works: Each person donates an item(s) to the raffle. (this can be a turned item, an old tool, books, wood, blanks, or anything creative). We will place a cup next to each item, and we will sell tickets for $0.50 each. If you want to try for a specific item or items, you put a ticket (with your name on it) in the cup. At the end of the day, we pull one ticket from each cup, and that person will win the item. It is a lot of fun, and most everyone goes home with something. (there is some strategy here - put more tickets in a cup to increase the odds of being chosen, and cups with very few tickets in them can be won with only a ticket or two).


As for the COVID-19, given the current situation you may want to wear a mask when you aren’t eating. As some of you already know from our last meeting, I will definitely be masked and maintaining social distance because my vaccination didn’t take.


So, plan to join your woodturning friends on Saturday, Sept 18th.


Remember to bring:

1. Food item

2. Show and tell items

3. Beads of Courage bowl

4. Donated item(s) for raffle.

5. Wallet and money to buy raffle tickets.
