Carvers Corner
(or Gary’s Gossip Column)

 The 10th Annual Caricature Carvers of America Competition and Seminar was another wonderful event. Many folks commented on the great works on display. Bruce Henn & Don Mertz of Ohio, Jim Hiser of PA and Joe Schumacher of Missouri were CCA members here to help. Our Judges and instructors were Ryan Olsen of Idaho, Joe You of California & Mitch Cartledge of North Carolina. You might want to get Tammy Roe to give you some carving classes. She is good enough to carve on the instructors’ go-by. Well at least she did, I’d assume she is that good.

Thank you’s go out to Bob Alexander, Earl Whitaker, Mildred Freeman, Suzi Brown, Jeff Moore, Mike Sikes, Beth Buie, Tammy Roe, Karen Taylor, Fran Schumacher and Bob & Linda Courtney. We couldn’t pull this event off without the help of these hard working folks.

We are still continuing to work on Comfort Birds. Thanks again to all who have been helping us with getting these birds cut out and carved.  We are getting closer to our goal this year so any help would be appreciated.

We can use some Live Auction items for our December Auction. If you have any carvings or carving items to donate bring them to the Club. Yes, I know it’s early but we sold everything we had at the July Auction.

The September 24  Woodburning Weekend is also an event to trade or sell your items.

Dues are $10.00 + $1.00 per each family member. Due in December.

Your Ol’ carvin’ buddy,
Gary

If you know about a club member who needs a get well card or a sympathy card please let us know? Many of our folks live away and without your help we may miss the chance to send a card.

Steve Fowler is getting daily infusions for a serious infection in his leg. Prayers appreciated.
