One Week Later.

August 21, 2021

HubCityTurners descended on Shell Lake last weekend. The weather set the tone for a hot weekend with a high ice cube count in various containers of drinkable fluids. People started arriving and setting up on Thursday afternoon. Soon the Gazebo was dotted with lathes, tables, items for sale, food and tools. Various modes of accommodation circled the Gazebo much like horse drawn wagons around a campfire in days of old.

Sharon Genge kept track of all the people that came for the weekend. Fourteen turners, two spouses, one dog and numerous visitors showed up over the weekend. To a person, everyone claimed the weekend to be a fantastic experience. If you have never been to this gathering do yourself a favour and plan to attend next year. You will get ample opportunity to share tips, techniques and tools with other turners quite willing to exchange all kinds of knowledge. Be prepared for an inordinate amount of fun, frivolity and fantastic food.

There is a video of the event to give you a better idea of what to expect. Click below for the link.
