December (2010) : No Meetings

Saturday January 8th: Bob Young’s Shop, Hamilton:
For the January Meeting we are going to make tools for the CanIron tool box. Members can bring their own projects if they want, but it will be a hands on meeting. Also we want members to bring forged key fobs, they can be anything they like- leaves, flowers, etc, just remember that they have to fit on a key ring. The idea behind this is that we are looking for donations these can be handed out as gifts to potential sponsors, and it might give them a better idea of what we do.

Bob’s place is south of Hwy 403 between Hamilton and Brantford. It is easiest to take the "Copetown" cut-off from the 403 and follow the "Grand River Dinner Cruises" signs as the "Boat Farm" is a couple of kilometers past their place. From the cut-off follow Trinity Rd for approximately 8km even when the name changes to Sawmill Rd at a sharp curve and then Brant Rd 22 is about 2km further - the next road to the right. They are about 1km on the right.

Saturday February 12th at Waldies Blacksmith Shop, Milton:
Mike Currie, who frequently makes objects for reenactors, will be demonstrating how to make a Neck Knife. Lunch will be provided for a nominal fee. Members are asked to please be please be punctual.

Take the 401 to exit 320, going south on Martin St. Turn right onto Main St, and then right onto James St.

Saturday March 12th: Mick Smith’s Shop, Fergus:
This meeting will be making more things for CanIron, and teaching anyone interested in how to work as a striker. We will need volunteer strikers for CanIron, and it’s best to learn how before you start swinging the hammer. If you can bring your own sledge hammer, it would be appreciated.

Take the 401 to exit 295 and head north on Highway 6 (Hanlon Pkwy) through Guelph. Highway 6 takes a right at Woodlawn Rd W, and then a left at Woolwich St, and then on to Fergus. In Fergus, follow the 6 through town, which follows Tower, then Bridge, then David St over the river. Once out of Fergus, follow the 6 and turn right on to Sideroad 10. Take the 10 until it curves onto Jones baseline, but take a sharp right after the curve to go SOUTH on Jones Baseline. Mick’s place is on the right, second house before the swamp.
