Ideas for Enhancing Value of Membership in the Guild –
Anton Chaplin submitted several ideas based upon his former membership in the Anchorage
Woodworking Club. These ideas were presented by George and Anton and are listed below. [Note:
A response to an e-mail sent to the president of the Anchorage club will be discussed at the next Guild
   1. The meetings were at the Anchorage museum once a month at 7 P.M. in the auditorium. Available to
       the Club was a stage, large screen for slide or overhead presentations, and comfortable seats (after a
       day of work for many folks).
   2. The Club started the year in August with a big barbecue for the membership. Families attended. It was
       held at Russian Park, a very large place with many facilities.
   3. The group did not meet in June or July.
   4. At each meeting there was a presentation by one of the members. Examples of the subjects are:
   5. identification of woods (2) making jigs (3) how to make a canoe (4) how to make a hand-plane
   6. (5) finishing (6) how to make bird houses (7) how to make a crib, etc. Most presentations included
       slides, photographs, and discussion.
   7. Each meeting included show and tell by the membership.
   8. Every Saturday during the "meeting" year one of the members held a free workshop at his/her home
   9. The Club held an annual two-day weekend major workshop/seminars at the National Guard center.
       There were many "set-ups" showing or demonstrating how-to-do something. The public paid a modest
       amount to attend.
   10. The Club held an annual 2x4 contest. To construct something out of a birch 2x4. There were prizes.
   11. The Club participated in the State Fair each year.
   12. Each year the Club held a couple of weekend workshops conducted by well known woodworkers from
       the Lower 48. The workshops cost $90 to $150. These were major events with attendance by really
       interested woodworkers. Often these were hands-on. The membership of the Club was over 200 people
       and meetings at the museum were often attended by 50 to 100 or more people.
   13. The Board arranged with major suppliers to get discounts for the membership provided purchases came
       in one purchase order. For example, everyone bought Wetzler (SP) clamps as a Club hence buying the
       clamps at half price. The order was about $2000 for clamps.
   14. The Board met on a different day during the month at a Board members home. The meetings started at
       7 P.M.
   15. The Club has an extensive lending library.
The objective behind submitting these ideas is to generate more vitality and greater interest and,
consequently, commitment by all Guild members. Basically, we want to make the club a "great" club
for all woodworkers; one that everyone enjoys and wants to be an active participant.
We invite your comments and suggestions so let us hear from you.
