Our September meeting was held at Ron Kneale's clubhouse in Chino. Our very own Roger Domeny gave a program on string splicing tools and techniques. After a demonstration of two knots that he uses in everyday string repairs (one of which can be used to repair wound strings that break at the agraffe), stringing jigs were set up and everyone who wanted to had the opportunity to tie a broken string using the method of their choice.
As it turns out, this was the last time we will be able to meet at Ron's clubhouse as Ron & Denise are moving (thankfully not out of the area). We very much appreciate their making this facility available to us over the past many years and will truly miss being able to use it in the future. It was such a convenient location!
Our October meeting will be held at Bill Shull's store, Shull Piano, in Loma Linda (25041 Redlands Blvd). For our technical program, Bruce Stevens will present a fast paced PowerPoint lecture of what is involved in the care and maintenance procedures of the world-renowned Jansen artist bench as well as an actual demonstration of these procedures. A detailed hand-out of the lecture will be provided.
We are still in need of a Jansen artist bench that is in need of rebuilding for this program. Obviously, it must be a Jansen bench. It must not be missing parts, and it must not need wood repairs. Did I mention that you and/or your client will receive this rebuild FREE? If you can help us out, please contact Roger Domeny at email@example.com, or (909) 824-2561.
Our November meeting will feature a presentation by Bill Shull on how to upload and download piano images and data using the Historical Piano Society database. What should you do when you come across a piano with historical significance? What kinds of data should you be collecting? What sorts of pictures should you be taking? And how can you share this information with your colleagues so that everyone benefits? These are the kinds of questions that Bill will be addressing in his presentation.
