My 2 cents. We are supposed to be a non-profit organization who supports the community. I’ve been a member of an organization that teaches Cub Scouts the principles of flight by building wood airplanes. I think having scouts out is a great idea. I would consider the Cub Scouts as a part of our community outreach.
Perhaps Chuck you could ask for volunteers to supervise the cubs scouts or even assist you in the construction of the derby cars. The scouts are supposed to the majority of the work right?
Regardless, if time permits I’m willing to help with this endeavor. I think it would be very educational to show the scouts what the woodshop is all about, too.
Anyone else willing to volunteer to host the scouts? Chuck, I would also recommend you join if you haven’t yet. You can’t actually use the equipment until you do.
Incidentally, I hosted a group of home-schooled children at DMS when I was teaching leathercraft. The kids had a great time, they learned something they could make with and their parents were most grateful.
Their parents must sign waivers, of course, but perhaps we could do this with a paper waiver document.
