One of our newest members, Terry Beckner, has been called to Afghanistan and will be leaving on November 14. He's built an amazing solar wax melter that he has offered to the club. All that's left to be done is sanding and painting! It's a beauty and you can rest assured it's well built. Terry's hobby is woodworking. Besides solar wax melters, Terry's made unbelievably detailed, hand-carved walking stick handles, beautiful canoes and--are you ready?--violins!!! You can see the solar wax melter at Crystal Coast Beek's website at http://ccba.webng.com or at our next meeting on Monday, Nov 9, 7 pm, Morehead City Parks & Rec Community Bldg, 1600 Fisher St, Morehead City. Thanks to Terry's generosity, we're raffling it off, proceeds to purchase a much-needed laptop and projector for use at our presentations. Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 and can be purchased at our meetings on November 9, at the Christmas Party on December 14, or before the drawing at our January 11, 2010 meeting. Or you can send a check to Tia Douglass, President, CCBA, PO Box 791, Williston NC 28589-0791 and she will mail your tickets to you. Once again we wish to thank Terry for his generosity, we wish him well and will keep in touch with him during his tour of duty in Afghanistan.
