Message from Coleman:
===========
Hello All,

I wanted to reach out to each of you to see if there is any interest from you and your club members to participate in some level at one of our retail stores during the week of Oct.23rd – Oct.31st. I couldn’t just let October and our 20th anniversary of the Extravaganza just be cancelled completely. Also, as you know, the show is a big part of our goal to further the hobby of woodworking and let folks see how fun and exciting woodworking can be. We have spread out the event to several days to keep the crowds down and help in our social distancing mandates.

The plan is to have daily/weekly sales at each of our stores as well as have any participation from you guys to talk to customers(small scale) and see if you can increase the interest in your woodworking club and the hobby in general. I propose that we have one club in a location per day with announcements on our social media and in the stores. The clubs can be doing demos/show and tell/ etc so that customers can take a look at what your club is all about. We need to keep the members to a minimum of 10 people and of course we would ask that mask be worn but if you have any desire in participating then we would love to have you.

Happy Woodworking,
Coleman Fourshee Sr. - General Manager
Klingspor's Woodworking Shop

I should be available on 10/24 at Cary if you need anyone for scroll saw work. I assume we will need our own PPE.

UPDATED:
Store hours are 9-6 during the week & 9-5 on Saturday. Klingspors' marketing will state demo hours are from 10:00-2:00, we can stay longer if want to

Please bring your own PPE, as sharing is currently frowned upon without sufficient sanitizing processes.

Klingspors will have tools available as there will only be one club in the store on any given day.

I plan on building a Geodesic AeroLite canoe. I will setup outside and working/explaining what I am doing each afternoon, I should be able to go from start to finish over the eight or so days.
I will be building a 14' canoe that should come in under 30 lbs.
Assistance would be great, but no more than one assistant per afternoon

Anyone wanting to assist Phil, let me know which day you want to assist, first come, first served.

Count me in for helping out for what ever the needs are. My schedule is pretty open at the moment. I can help Phil out, I'm sure he needs my supervision skills greatly. :cool:

I put you in the store on 10/24, if you're wanting to assist Phil, let me know which days you want to be there. Hoping others in Triangle area will be there also.

It would be nice to have some company in the Winston store on the 24th! So if anyone close to this area that wants to display your work and talk with folks about our organization as they come through, that would be awesome. So don’t let me have all the fun and come out, take part, and if you have a backsaw or dovetail saw that needs touching up I’ll be sharpening while we talk about NCWW!

Neal,
I can probably be at the Cary store with a Pyrography setup if that's acceptable. If we're allowed to let people try their hand at wood burning, I can bring the two extra burners and set them up so people can make a book mark "Make and Take"! If the 24th is the only day for us at the Cary store, then I guess that would be the day I'd be available. Otherwise, I'd offer Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday. I'm on call for work the following week so I won't be available any time after Sunday.

Thanks Michael. Plan on taking the extra burners with you, I'll get some clarification from Coleman if they will be allowing others to do hands-on work. I would say if that is allowed, be prepared to sanitize the equipment after each person comes in contact with it.

We are committed to the Oct 24th (Saturday) for the inside area, but Phil may can use an extra body on one of your other free days while he demonstrates the canoe build.

Hi Michael, YES please bring the burners. Yes please wipe down after someone uses them. This is a great idea and really appreciate you guys jumping in last minute and doing this. It will be very low key compared to our normal events but hopefully the spirit of the Extravaganza will be in full display until we can fill up the Metro Center in 2021.

Neal, I can most likely fill in where we have holes. I can do a couple days. Also if Coleman needs any assistances, I can help out.
