Registrations & Guests

After sign in, the first thing you see at the bottom of the registration page is the Number of Attendees. The default number is "1". If you wish to bring guests, change the number in the box. You will only be asked to give the name and an optional email address on the next page.

Please don't double book. You will get an acknowledgement email when you register for an event. A reminder is also sent to you a few days before the event.

If you need to go back to add guests later, uncheck the "Include myself as an attendee" box assuming you have already registered. Then continue as normal to add your guests.
Discounted Taunton Magazine Subscriptions
DEADLINE February 15, 2020

Once again, we’re taking orders for Taunton magazines at special group rates. These rates represent a 20% discount off the regular subscription prices and are applicable to both new and renewal subscriptions on any magazine that Taunton publishes. Since we do this only once a year, in February, you may wish to renew now, even if your subscription expires mid-year – Taunton will simply add to your current term.

Gary Canning Moves Into New Shop
You can see that Gary Canning has the biggest smile in this picture.

That’s because this crew of Guild members gathered at his home in Sunapee last Friday, where we moved all his heavy woodworking tools out of the basement and into his new shop.

Left to right. Dick Weiss, John Gosselin, Peter James, Mike DiMaggio, me, Ed Weaver and a very happy and relieved Gary Canning.

We are also smiling as we are about to head to Ziggies Pizza where Gary has informed us that lunch was on him.
