Happy Thanksgiving Everyone


Every September and October brings us carving shows and festivals that we, as a club, try to attend by supporting local woodcarving clubs and festivals. I would like to thank all CWC members supporting these shows in Hickory NC, Greenville SC, Townsend TN, Asheville NC, Wilmington Ohio and a Festival in Waxhaw NC and Matthews NC.

Once again I am happy to announce to the club members that Charlotte Woodcarvers Club received a $750 dollar check for the support and fun filled time at the Matthews Alive Event this past Labor Day weekend. Congratulations to our club and to each and everyone that helped in supporting this event. I would also like to thank Bob Benston for his time and efforts to see that we were all checked in and having a fun filled Labor Day weekend. Thank you, Bob Benston.

All club members… Reminder, Nominations for club officers will be held at our December 12, 2017 meeting at 5:45pm. Our Elections for club officers will be held in January 2018. Be thinking as to which position you would like to run.

We have just over 3 months before our 2018 Showcase. Time seems to pass so quickly this time of year so think about getting those carvings completed before February so you can enter those carvings in our 2018 show. Also, get those sigh up forms in as soon as possible to avoid the long line on show weekend.

REMEMBER… He that respects the sharpness of his knife is safe from cutting himself!!!
