Charlotte Woodcarvers

Here we are again with another hurricane threatening to do more damage in the southeast. I hope everyone has fully recovered from Florence and now we have Michael to contend with. Ron DowdyAll we can do is hope for the best.

Those that took Ron Dowdy’s class last month had some extraordinary carvings to show the club members. The consensus of the club is to continue offering as many different carving classes as possible.

caricature carvers of americaI am delighted to inform the club members the Caricature Carvers of America (CCA) will hold their 2020 meeting in conjunction with our annual woodcarving show. This is a tremendous opportunity and honor for our club to be able to attract such a talented group. We hope they will teach some seminars and maybe some carving classes before and after the show. Special thanks go out to Rod Gatlin and his committee for completing the proposal to CCA.

The 2019 Show is fast approaching and I urge each club member to register for the show as early as possible. It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and you can do it on line if that is easier. The theme for our show is Adventures in Movies. We would like to see each member carve an entry for the show theme. Finally, we need more volunteers and we need more volunteers to work longer. It is crucial that we make this year’s show a success and we can’t do it without a lot of help from our club members, their friends and family.
The only place were success comes before work is a dictionary.
