Join us out of the potential cold and wet for a presentation by Kaine Ziebarth of VERO watches in Portland. If you can find the Summer 2018 issue of the watch magazine REVOLUTION that might still be on the newsstands (Barnes & Noble...), VERO has a mention and photo on page 121 in a "Made in America" article. Kaine has sent along some short videos:

DECEMBER BANQUET: Keep an eye on the website for the form for the Banquet that will replace the December meeting.
NEXT YEAR'S REGIONAL: Any ideas on what we might hand out to those that register for the Regional next year? Two years ago in Tacoma we got little LED flex lights with a laser pointer, I'm thinking of getting some form of loupe on a "2018 PNW Regional" lanyard. Bring your ideas to the meeting, or let me know by phone/e-mail.
Also, in regards to the Regional, on the registration forms should there be a notice, and I'm paraphrasing, that "We adhere to the NAWCC guideline of preserving horological items and history, i.e., no scrapping, thank you." There is quite a discussion on the NAWCC message board about this subject, both sides of the coin in some instances:
And I am slowly figuring out some "EASY" buttons on getting these sent out in a more timely manner. Thank you all for your patience.
Enjoy this change in seasons!
