Club  Origin/History

Yellowstone Woodturners came into being when Floyd "Creeky" Creekmore and Dan Schindler, after a year of "We otta's", declared a meeting on January 19, 2000.  Seventeen turners from Billings, Hardin, Laurel, and Park City, Montana, as well as Cody and Powell, Wyoming gathered at the Dude Rancher Coffee Shop in Billings, Montana for "show and tell", laughter, sharing, meeting other woodturners, and promoting woodturning. 
Since that original meeting, Yellowstone Woodturners has grown to over 50 members.

The original officers were:
President:  Dan Schindler
Vice President:  Glenn Hall
Secretary:  Milford Eversole aka "Moose"
Treasurer:  Floyd Creekmore
Newsletter Editor:  Dennis McKnire

The rest, well, is history. . .
