Thanks for getting this forum started. The schedule for everyone at this point is extremely busy between the Clarke departure and newly created supply void, and the holiday season. This situation is important enough to warrant this forum, even though on short notice, to help everyone understand the options available. This is not the end of the world!
Like Greg said, if we work together, we can get through this challenge, and even Gordon said the same thing in his fax. To make this work, we will have to be more flexible on blank choices, and learn some new techniques. This is not rocket science!
I have talked with Greg Loehr and Hank Johns about presenting at the forum, as well as Terry Price, instructor of the classes, about the forum. Part of the intent is to introduce to everyone the ease of working with the materials, and the availability of additional composite education at Cerritos. This isn’t All about surfboard building. Part of this is giving back to the community and surf culture what we have all gained.
Because of the holiday season, and Christmas Party Schedules, we have decided to make this forum a bit shorter and only run from 9AM till Noon. We will be working on a list of topics for future forums, and perhaps do another all day forum in the future.
Please invite as many people to attend. This will be a learning experience, and will console those that are missing their polyester fix.
We will try to put together an agenda of the forum in the next few days, but because this wasn’t decided upon until today, some of the details are still being worked out. I apologize for the short notice…
Please come in support of Cerritos College and Terry Price. You may decide to join some of us in learning even more about the composite world!
Hope to see you all there!!
