NAWCC Chapter 31 January 20, 2019 Meeting
We are back in the Beaverton Library, Meeting Room B, 1pm-4pm. 12375 SW 5th St (intersection w/SW Hall Blvd), Beaverton, OR 97005.
- 1:00-2:00- Council and committee meeting, 2:00-2:30- MART, 2:30-4:00- Tom Hammond Presentation. 4:00+: Meet for pizza?
- At 1pm, I would like to have a council and committee meeting, as the Regional approaches in July, anything that needs to be considered, let's start work on it now.
- Past President Jeff Eastwood will tell us about Perpetual Calendar Mechanisms, and how they can be so smart as to account for not only months with their different number of days, but also keep track of, and display correctly, February 29 every four years. He'll have some mechanisms so all the smoke and mirrors they contain will be visible, a veritable peak at the magician behind the curtain.
He also supplied the tip that it may be a short-ish 20-30 minute presentation, so if I may suggest audience members bring something of horological interest, easily portable, that contains the letter "J", J for January! Use your imagination, a small Junghans, an old copy of a Jeweler's Newsletter, a clock or watch book by somebody named Bjorn, aJ anywhere is fair game.
- If you don't make the meeting, there is the possibility of a March banquet, the 20th, St Patrick's Day, corned beef and cabbage on the menu? If you would like to have a banquet and attend, we will start to need a plate count, let me know if you will be there. Program in the works, but it looks like a "Before and After" on a shelf clock. (I've seen the case "After", what a difference!) FLYER
