To the homepage of Coulee Region Woodturners, the local AAW chapter serving southwest Wisconsin, northeast Iowa, and southeastern Minnesota (see map). Our chapter was newly formed in the spring of 2001, and we are 100+ members strong as of February, 2016. Our meetings are held at 9 am on the third Saturday of each month, mostly at the Onalaska Community Center at the intersections of Quincy and 6th Ave North in Onalaska, WI.
You don't have to be a member to attend, but we encourage anyone with an interest in woodturning, no matter what your experience, to join. Membership includes the monthly newsletter "One Good Turn", published by our new Secretary, Rich Egan--you can download issues here in PDF format.
