    I dont think so.
    I just attend the school of try it, screw it up, and then try it again, that's how I learn.

    I’m also a Diplomate of the Try School— think I should have a doctorate there too.
    Kind of hard to get out and away, and I tend to guard my weekends.

    I did think about you for this David, but I remember you saying you had a hard time getting away during the week. Hopefully you can join us!

    I have found a turners group here on the Big Island that I'll likely join. Less for structural lessons and more for the ability to see some techniques from others. Also, they will know where all the wood is here...

    I don't go to symposiums to learn as much as a time to meet with friends, make new friends who may want to give me wood, find what new gadgets I can't live without but will never use, or to get away from home for a few days.:old:

    I barely get the time to get out of town for a day, so I don't see it happening.
    You tube it is for me.
    I do want to figure out how to use the 4th axis attachment on the CNC.

    I took a class in September that was taught by Tom Caspar and found it worthwhile. It's the only class I've taken thus far. I wouldn't mind taking some more classes in the future in areas where I have little knowledge and would like to increase that knowledge and skill. So, no plans yet this year to take a class, but that doesn't mean that I won't end up taking one.
