COMAG was crazy busy in August!! August 2017 Meeting Minutes

August was such a busy month for COMAG!  Our 2017 annual show was a great success!  The show looked absolutely fabulous and the work from our metal artist was short of nothing but absolute amazement and beauty.  Thank you to all of the members who have taken the time to come out to represent COMAG and for all of your hard work!  The Liberty Theater turned out to be a great showroom and coupled with First Friday, the room was certainly filled with much excitement and great energy from the public.   Also, a great big thank you to all of the members who organized this event!  You all did a remarkable job on hosting such a flawless event!

And yes!  We still had our normal August meeting, which was  held at Orion Forge thanks to our awesome COMAG President Hunter!!...  Orion Forge always brings much laughter and much excitement into exploring the hot forge for the metal worker. This meeting was lightly attended it seemed, probably because most members were getting ready for the COMAG 2017 annual show.

This meeting mostly focused on discussions with the scholarship committee and the much needed  detail and guided outline of how the scholarships will be distributed and allocated.  Also, there was some discussion with the workshops to come in the future as well as finding ways to enhance the opportunities to learn by allowing some of our own members to head workshops as well as inviting other metal art instructors to come to Bend to teach.  It ended with a sweet show and tell and there was a raffle as well.
