Chapter Meeting – October 2017

Date: Monday – October 9, 2017

Time: 6:00pm (Board),  7:00pm (Refreshments), 7:30pm (Chapter Mtg)

Location: Shull Piano: 610 Amigos Drive, Suite B2, Redlands CA 92373

Program: Yours truly had to miss most of last month’s business meeting; but I did get in on the convention reports, attendees’ reactions that the hotel was exceptional, and information that some outstanding classes were attended.

The most important delegate report was that Council disempowered itself and the Board is henceforth the empowered body of PTG. Our host, President Bill Shull, presented Ron Kneale with a certificate naming him the Web Master (Guru).

Our program, “Cleaning the Grand Piano,” was an extensive demonstration and running discussion by Herb Bridgman of materials & techniques he uses in this work. An extensive 9-point outline was included.

Our regular meeting this month will be a presentation by Bill Shull on servicing the Viennese Piano, the class which he taught at this year’s convention. Members should also check the Orange County Chapter Newsletter page and are encouraged to attend their annual Tool Auction.

Mark you calendars for Monday, November 20 when we will be joining the LA Chapter at the Pasadena Steinway store for a presentation by John Patton.
