There was no South Bay Chapter meeting in February. WestPac was the second weekend in March. Several chapter members were in attendance and we enjoyed the course offerings as well as the camaraderie at the extracurricular events.

Isaac Sadigursky was our guest at the March meeting. Entertaining as always, he discussed the various problems which can pop up after a piano has been refinished. Some problems would be immediately evident while others may take years to occur (example - case parts may experience glue failure as a result of the stripping chemicals used for refinishing).

Isaac also took the opportunity to remind us all that carrying spare parts (not just action parts, but also a large variety of screws, hinges, etc) can save the technician time and will repay the technician ten-fold over the course of the career.

Please join us at the next joint chapter meeting in April where Isaac will be presenting the second part of his class. See the L.A. Chapter section of the newsletter for further details!
