Hey Rev, nice to hear of your success (which no one doubted) on the turning demo.  Two hours?  Wow, though time flies when you are having fun.  The satisfaction level must compare to the one you get when you give a particularly successful sermon.  After thirty some years of teaching (and giving a "sermon" or two on some literature topic), I remember that sometimes the success level was particularly gratifying.  And I am sure they will invite you next year. 
Congratulations!

Hey Rev,  Congrats on a good demo.  Camphor works everytime.  Aromatic Cedar works well also.  What you need to practice for next year is being able to control where your ribbons go...people get a kick out of a paper thin ribbon flowing over the lathe and into the crowd.  I had one heckler who 'thought' he knew all about turning and kept giving me grief for about 30 minutes.  I finally decided I was done with his noise and showered him in shavings.  The crowd got a kick out of it.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this "gloat" of mine but here goes. Last week I donated a piece over on WoodCentral for a Katrina Hurricane Benefit Auction (auction #18 ). Although it only brought one bid it was for 50 bucks, to go to the Red Cross via WoodCentral. Then this weekend I donated 3 pieces, a natural edge box elder bowl, a walnut potpourri dish, and a bocote duck call, to the Ogden Nature Center fundraiser benefit and auction. The bowl brought $48, the dish $32 and the duck call $28. That's almost $150 total which is more than I could have given in cash myself. I've never sold or even tried to sell anything before but it made me feel pretty good that folks were willing to cough up their hard earned cash for some of my stuff. Anyway, how's that for a gloat!

I'd say that's quite a gloat.  Congrats!

Bravo!  More power to you.  It shows that people really see the value of the work you are doing.

Well done Curt.  I did see your piece on WC, and was going to bid on it myself, but the auction closed before I got a chance.  There are still some great pieces over there.
