Last Meeting March 10, 2018

Over 25  members and guests gathered at the Skyland Fire Department for the bi-monthly meeting of Chapter #126.

The meeting featured coffee and donuts, the new “Flea Market Table at the Mart for Other Collectibles
and Items of Interest” and presentations by John Huber on Marine Chronometers.

The Education Workshop  was the disassembly and assembly of a Marine Chronometer by John Huber.  John did a great job.
Taking thing apart is usually the easy part for many of us, but assembly - not so much.
However, John calmly walked us through the process and at the end the chronometer was running with no extra parts.

Featured Program - Marine Chronometers John Huber A historical review of the history of Marine Chronometers.
