As a new user you will be assigned a mentor/s who will get to know your needs and make you comfortable with the club. If there are any personality conflicts or the first mentor is unavailable contact the second one or any other on the list, list is on the website. They can help you with different skills, tell you where to get free wood, suggest tool options, show off their shop, evaluate yours and much more. We are here to help you get the most out of the club and get you started. Note: The use of mentors is a benefit of the club, and you will never be charged no matter how many times you use them.
It is also important to be considerate of the mentor’s time and to follow-up on any conversations in a timely manner.
We hope you enjoy all the benefits the club has to offer and look forward to seeing you at the next meeting. Meetings are the last Thursday of every month.
