North Arkansas Woodcarvers show

I had a great time in Mountain Home this weekend, despite managing to catch a cold. Roger Stegal also had a table and we both did well in the competitions. We were also surprised to see some other members of the club visiting the show. Dwayne Kennedy, Jay Weaver, and Vernon Driscoll all made the trip up . Roger won four blue ribbons and I know at least two third places, in addition to winning the carving contest on Sunday! Woohoo! I got two blues, three reds, and three thirds, but my little bulldog also got third Best in Show and "Baby Fishing" was picked for the CCA Merit award. So our small club did pretty well! It was a lot of fun to talk with people about our carvings and meet a lot of well known carvers who were there. Adina Huckins was the judge and Sandy Smith and Randy Landen from the CCA were there. We saw Harold Enlow and his wife Elaine, Dale Heinecke and his wife Robin, and Larry Yudis had plenty of tools and stuff for sell. And Roger talked with Mike Shipley a bit!

Here's a few pictures!
