COMAG Meeting February 2017

Well, here we are in 2017.  Can you believe it!  As you all know our January 2017 meeting was cancelled TWICE because of severe snowy weather..so we have no minutes to post for January.  December 2016 was a holiday party and there was no formal meeting. A big thank you to Sandra for hosting our Christmas Party. Always so much fun!

 This leads me to February 2017 which I am happy to say that I am finally caught up on posting all of  these minutes and pictures!

Hunter Dahlberg Kellen Bateham

Thank you again to Hunter for allowing us to convene at the great Orion Forge. The first meeting of the year is always the longest as we go over our goals and review whats to come. But, the biggest news is that Hunter Dahlberg is now our new President of COMAG.  Rochelle Davenport is the new Treasurer and Kellen and Sean are our new Members at Large.  Congratulations to all of you.  We greatly appreciate all of the outgoing members for all of their hard work and time and energy to make this group what it is and of course appreciate the new members for stepping up to volunteer.

We also reviewed details as to where our 2017 meetings will be held, and also would like to remind all members to please pay their dues if they want to stay on the email list.  Hunter and Kellen put on their moving metal show and tell, as you can see.  Pretty neat that thing there.

If you are not a member yet and are interested in coming to a meeting, please contact us and someone will get back to you with the information as to the time and location. Not all of our meetings are open to the public.

COMAG Meeting November 2016

A thank you goes out to Mr. John Paul for hosting our November COMAG meeting at his new "Magical House of Crafts".  It's fun to get to see the new digs JP!  Pretty cool being a black smith and metal smith jeweler at the same time.

COMAG Meeting October 2016

Hello Everybody, 

I am catching up on a few blog post ..this last part of the year is just a busy busy time, so forgive me. 

Thank you to Hunter for hosting our October 2016 COMAG meeting.  The meeting was short and sweet.  Members were primarily asked to start considering volunteering for the new president and or who to nominate for other board positions.

 Mark Manley was kind enough to give us a demo on his "Super Quench" technique method that he uses.  And,  Scott Goodman also gave a small presentation on the history of  Karl Goetz a medal maker and artist.  He showed a slide show and some samples of medals and coins to share with our group.
