Greetings Flame Surfer!

Oxygen ConcentratorIsn’t it amazing that we are now in November! Crazy. The year has flown by once again. We are about to enter 2010! That year number always sounded like a movie title to me…but now I guess the movie is bumped to “2012”! What ever….anyway, we have a lot going on the next several weeks.

December 5th Holiday Meeting
The SCFS Holiday meeting is coming up early next month…December 5th at Pacific Art Glass. We are very excited this year to have an Extreme Oxygen Concentrator M15 as one of the many raffle prizes. Plus a very cool gift to every paying member, a warm & cozy winter pot luck, demos in blowing your own shards and miniature bottles and did I mentions LOTS of raffle prizes?? Please make you plans to join us! Meeting starts at the usual time, 10 am.


We will be collecting beads for Beads of Courage at the December meeting. We have become an important contributing group to BOC and would like to make this year bigger than ever! Anyone bringing at least 20 beads will be given a free raffle ticket. We will also be donating a portion of our raffle proceeds to Beads of Courage.
