Join us out of the potential cold and wet for a presentation by Kaine Ziebarth of VERO watches in Portland. If you can find the Summer 2018 issue of the watch magazine REVOLUTION that might still be on the newsstands (Barnes & Noble...), VERO has a mention and photo on page 121 in a "Made in America" article. Kaine has sent along some short videos:

Join us for a lively presentation about VERO's craft.

WHEN: Sunday, October 21, 2018. 2-4pm

LOCATION: We will be in ROOM 340 in the Griffith Building in Beaverton: 4755 SW Griffith Dr, Beaverton, OR, 97005. 2-4pm (2-2:30 will be Mart time)

DECEMBER BANQUET: Keep an eye on the website for the form for the Banquet that will replace the December meeting.

NEXT YEAR'S REGIONAL: Any ideas on what we might hand out to those that register for the Regional next year? Two years ago in Tacoma we got little LED flex lights with a laser pointer, I'm thinking of getting some form of loupe on a "2018 PNW Regional" lanyard. Bring your ideas to the meeting, or let me know by phone/e-mail.

Also, in regards to the Regional, on the registration forms should there be a notice, and I'm paraphrasing, that "We adhere to the NAWCC guideline of preserving horological items and history, i.e., no scrapping, thank you." There is quite a discussion on the NAWCC message board about this subject, both sides of the coin in some instances:

https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/marts-and-gold-scrappers.154613/

And I am slowly figuring out some "EASY" buttons on getting these sent out in a more timely manner. Thank you all for your patience. 

Enjoy this change in seasons!
