Our 2018 Showcase is this coming weekend, February 16, 17 & 18. I am looking forward to meeting all the competing carvers, vendors and visitors for a fun filled weekend of competition and showing off our carvings to the public. All local CWC club members should be registered by Friday, February 16, 2018. This is to insure that club members will be available for Friday afternoon and Saturday morning check in as runners for those signing in for competition. Club elections were held for our 2018 Officers and Board Members with the following results.
Club Officers:
Al Wheeler - President
Tom Kavanagh - Vice President
David Offill - Secretary
Henry Higginbotham- Treasure

Club Board Members:
Neil Zyp
Bubba Mullis
Marcy Chirdon

Rotating off the Club Board is Jim Horn and I thank him for his service to the club. I would also like to thank outgoing Vice President-Joe Davis and Secretary-Claudia Wallace for their commitment as club officers. With the new officers and Board Member starting their positions in April 2018 we will be able to continue our club and its purpose to serve others.
As in the past we have asked for your input for future carving classes and seminars….
Again I ask all members that if there are any seminars for our club meetings or carving classes that you would like to see the club pursue or if you have a particular instructor or instructors you would like to see teach a particular subject you would like to learn about, please get in touch with our new President, Al Wheeler for your suggestions.
Your input is important to the club program.

SEE YOU AT THE SHOW….

Charlotte Woodcarvers Club had another successful year with members contributing their time, talent and efforts on a variety of activities throughout the year to promote the art of woodcarving. Thanks to each of you who have contributed so much.

Merry Christmas Everyone


Another year has allowed our club to come together for fellowship and fun at our annual Christmas Social.
Thanks everyone for making Charlotte Woodcarvers Club a successful, enjoyable and fun filled club.
We had great participation at this year’s Christmas Social with 73 in attendance and the covered dishes were out of this world. Once again the club provided the fried chicken and desert and everyone brought a covered dish to share with others.

Merry Christmas Everyone and thanks for a great year of carving and fellowship.

Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen with this piece of wood

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.

When September arrives each year, my wife and I are invited to spend a week with my sister and her husband at their beach condo in North Myrtle Beach. I think I could spend even more time at this particular condo. UM!!! A beach condo!!! This is the perfect location to carve and enjoy good snacks and maybe a favorite beverage. But hey, it’s the beach….. Enough said for now.
September also allowed us to once again participate with the Matthews Alive Festival for 3 days of carving and interacting with over 2000 visitors. Once again the club gave over 200 hours of support to the festival which was a tremendous success. A big thank you goes out to Bob Benston for heading up this event and would also like to thank all members that gave their time to help the club for a successful festival.
