Texas Carnival Glass Club Summer Meeting
 

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus health situation our July meeting will now take place via Zoom.

Saturday, July 11, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. CDT 

 

Unfortunately the COVID-19 virus continues to weigh heavily in the US and more specifically in Texas. As a club we are no strangers to the impact with the first ever cancellation of our annual conference in March of this year. Texas COVID case numbers continue to rise and Austin is ranked fifth as a hotspot for COVID-19 cases.

Sandy & Bob Sage were scheduled to host our summer club meeting at their home in Austin but, given the associated risk of the virus, this meeting will now be a virtual meeting. Brian Foster has volunteered to again host this meeting from his Zoom account helping us grab photos and possibly a recording that we can post for those that are not able to join. Our plans are to follow the same format we used for our 2020 convention Zoom meetings with a practice session earlier that week. We're lining up some to technical support to help members work through their particular hardware to get as many of us on line as possible on July 11th.

At this point we are planning a very brief business meeting (announcements only) followed quickly by a fun Show & Tell session. We're calling this session "Your First and Favorite" and are asking each participant to consider showing 2 pieces of their glass in the meetings. Based on the title it should be intuitive and we think people will get a kick out of seeing how someone's tastes have evolved and to really see if anyone can actually remember their first piece, it's provenance, price, and timing of purchase. We may find for some of us that we may need to embellish the story a little but hey we do that all the time when talking about Carnival Glass.

Please dust off those computers, smart TV's, IPads, and smart phones in preparation of our meeting. Give a call out to Sandy and Bob, Brian, Cale Wilcox, and/or your local techie to make sure you are prepared for our meeting on the 11th. Look for more details in the near future on this page.
