THE PRESIDENT'S GALA for Honorary Members
This is a party for the honorary members with all Past
Presidents of the Knifemakers Guild serving as the special
hosts. The Gala will be the Thursday night of the Guild
Show weekend, and will feature a complimentary bar and
live music. Coat and ties for the Men and evening apparel
for the Ladies is requested, but not required. The Gala
will be held on September 19th, 2013 at 7:30p.m.
For the knife side of the Gala, each Guild member who is an exhibitor in the Knifemakers Guild Show will have the option of bringing one (1) knife to be exhibited on a table at the Gala. A card describing the knife and the price will accompany the knife. A small box will be placed behind each knife in which anyone wishing to purchase the knife may place their name. At a pre-determined time the winning name will be drawn from the box for each knife. The winners will finish the transactions inside the show once it opens on Friday. No money will change hands inside the Gala.
- Honorary members, Guild members, and Associate members
will be admitted to the Gala free.
- No knives will be displayed in the Gala unless that
person has a table reserved at the show.
A special request is being made to Honorary members who
have assembled collections suitable for exhibit to bring
their collections to the Guild show for others to enjoy.
An emphasis on education and display will be a factor rather
than simply laying the knives out on a table. A trophy for
best collection will be awarded.
JUST FOR THE HONORARY MEMBERS
As Honorary members, we want the Knifemakers Guild show to be the favorite show you attend. We realize that a lot of that appeal in the past, and in the future are the well-known makers and the high quality knives that they bring. So if you are planning to attend this years show and there are some makers you expect to see there, let them know. Drop them a card and tell them you look forward to seeing them at the Guild show. Mention it when you talk to them on the phone. You might be surprised what some of these makers will do in honoring your request. Also while you are at this years Guild show be sure to be on the look-out for tomorrows legends too. They will be there for sure.
