January - Bob Holmstrom will be speaking on "The Best Pendulum Clock" ever made in quantity. Who made it, when and where? We saw a preview of this topic at last summers picnic. The clock is known as the Fedchenko Clock. Bob will also give a preview of a future meeting topic: "The Clock of the Long Now" . While at a time Symposium in Pasadena he met with the creators of the Long Now Clock. This is a fascinating story that should be of interest to those who have achieved a multi-generational view of time and life. The originators would encourage mankind to think in terms of a time span longer than from our grand children back to say our great grandparents hence a 10,000 year clock.
February -- Stephen Nelson has agreed to present to the chapter a very popular topic from our past Regional "10 Minute University" program. The topic was using modern lubricating oils (motor oil) in mechanical clocks.
