SANTA BARBARA CHAPTER
July Meeting: (2nd Monday)
Date: Monday, July 14, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: 430 Rose Ave.
Santa Barbara, CA 93101
Four of us met at Jim Connolly's shop on June 9, 2014. During our business meeting, we discussed our annual picnic. We decided to meet at Foster Park in Casitas Springs on Sunday, August 10th, starting at 2:00. We discussed sending a delegate to the national convention. We discussed the relevancy of Yellow Page ads and our chapter website. The consensus was that they are not as useful as they once were.
For our program, we each took five minutes to examine Jim's Bechstein concert grand. Then we took turns explaining what we would do to the piano if we only had six hours to complete the job. It was interesting to note the similarities and differences from one technician to the next. The meeting adjourned at 9:26 pm.
The next Santa Barbara chapter meeting will be held again at the Piano Kitchen here in Santa Barbara. Jim will demonstrate voicing of the Bechstein hammers by several methods, such as steaming and other unique ways. HMMMM! You will not want to miss this meeting.
