Group Buys

New Form Information

There are now 2 different types of forms for most of the group buy events:

  • eForm – An electronic version of the form that you can fill out on your computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader. These forms will calculate discounts and totals automatically. Please use Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Adobe Reader for the form to function properly.
  • Standard – A blank version of the form if you wish to fill it out by hand. This version leaves the total blank instead of calculating the actual dollar amount for the total.


If Rockler stocks an item, please purchase that item from Rockler at their 10% club discount. We owe that to Rockler for being a wonderful host to our club.

Quarterly Group Buys

Group purchase orders for the following companies will be taken at the monthly meetings in January, April, July and October. Order forms will be available at meetings and are also posted below. Following meetings where quarterly group buy orders are taken, additional orders will be accepted if received by the respective group buy person by the following Tuesday. If the minimum order amount is not reached, the ordering period will be extended to the following month. Ordered items are normally distributed at the next monthly meeting.

Individual Catalog Orders

Individual Catalog Orders allow members to place orders with the below vendors at a discount and have the items shipped directly to your door. You must first sign up for individual catalog discounts. It is FRW’s policy that we do not provide full member rosters to vendors, so if you want to tap into these discounts, please be sure to sign up on the sheets that are passed around at each meeting.
