December Meeting: Annual Holiday Potluck No Board Meeting this month
Date: Monday, December 14, 2015
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Shull Piano
25041 Redlands Blvd.
Loma Linda, CA 92354

Our November meeting featured a very interesting presentation by Bill Shull on epoxy pinblock consolidation. Topics covered included when to perform epoxy consolidation and when to replace, as well as a demonstration using various resin materials. It was fascinating to see how completely these materials penetrated cracks, restoring structural integrity to the wood. Bill even told a horror story of someone he knows who neglected to remove the action before performing this procedure and who succeeded in gluing the keyframe to the keybed! (Fortunately they were able to free the action using acetone.) Of course, none of us would ever do something like that!

You are cordially invited to join us for our annual Holiday Potluck Get-Together which will take place at Shull Piano on Monday evening, December 14, starting at 6:00 pm. Bring your favorite dish and enjoy some relaxed time together with colleagues and friends. Families are invited and encouraged to attend. Entertainment will be provided by Bill & Catherine. Plus, there will be a Christmas carol sing-along. So mark your calendar now and be sure to join us for an evening of food and fun!

Please note that there will NOT be a chapter meeting in January due to an all-day program with LaRoy Edwards and company that you will not want to miss! This event, which is being sponsored by all the Southern California area chapters, will be held Monday, January 18 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), starting at 11:30 am and ending at 5:00 pm, at Keyboard Concepts in Santa Monica (3232 Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica). Be sure to watch for more information in next month's Newsletter.
