Tom Pike – Featured Carver – The annual Rochester Woodcarvers show allows us to recognize a club member for outstanding service to the club and community by naming them the “featured carver.” For 2009, Tom Pike was named the featured carver and greeted our visitors as they entered the show. Congratulations Tom and thanks for all you do for the club!
Raffle carvings – The 2009 Rochester Woodcarvers show was supported by very generous carvers offering their work to the club and those visitors and carvers buying raffle tickets. The raffle generates the revenue we need to offer free admission to the show – so no one will feel they cannot attend. Thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s show a success!
People’s choice carvings – The Rochester Woodcarvers annual show includes a special opportunity for our visitors and club members to vote for their favorite carving from those entered into the People’s Choice competition. There is no prize, ribbon, award, or cash for the winners – they just have the satisfaction of knowing that they have the most votes! The 2009 show concluded with Norm Busta in first place for his lifelike walleye, Jim Walts in second with his eagle, and Cheryl Jones finished third with her playful polar bear. Thanks to everyone who voted for their favorite carving – we’ll see you next year!
Additional photos by Wayne Hendrickson – Wayne Hendrickson is a long time club member, past president, and “help get it done” kind of guy. He also loves taking pictures and lends his services to the club capturing show “candids” of exhibitors and visitors. Wayne, thank you for helping preserve memories of this past show!
