    Tickets

    Contact with AAW office at (877) 595-9094. I'm confident they'll find a way to relieve you of your $20. [you were going to buy 2, right? :D]

    Good Cause

    Naturally.

    If you win you get to figure out what to do with it. You're not really going to turn on it and mess up all Pho's airbrushing, are you?

    I'll probably buy a chance at the Symposium, but SWMBO has already stated that I'll not be allowed to put it in the living room, and, if I do bring it home, she's not giving up her side of the garage and I will be solely responsible for dusting it.:D:D

    I contacted the AAW office and was told simply that, in effect, the local chapters had to have contacted the AAW and requested tickets. If they don't have them you are out of luck.

    Neither of my 2 clubs received any tickets or notice thereof to the best of my knowledge so something has fallen through the cracks here. I'd advise finding someone attending you trust and giving them your money and info for them to fill out at the event.

    Lathe Raffle??? What lathe raffle?

    :confused:My local club didn't offer tickets either, I don't think they knew about it.:(

    The club president mentioned other things going on at the Symp., but nothing about the lathe raffle.

    I will be bringing the lathe up to St. Paul from Binh's place. When I talked with him last week he was trying to make arrangements to get some tickets to various clubs for sale. I would suggest sending him an e-mail to get your tickets or to expedite the process of getting them to your club. And FYI...you don't have to be present to win.

    I can tell you the poster looks good, but does not do justice to the actual painting. He has spent a tremendous amount of time on this, and it shows in the detail.

    hey, can you say E-Bay.

    I will buy a ticket, and if I win, will post an auction the next day.

    if binh's work brings such nice prices then the lathe should bring enough to buy 2 mustard color ones.:D:D

    anyway I love the look of his work, but a tool is to used and I couldn't bring myself to be the first one to chip the paint job or spill finish on it.
