Bob Nowicki – Featured Carver – Club member Bob Nowicki was selected to be the 2013 Featured Carver for the show. This special designation provides Bob with the entry table so all show visitors will have a chance to congratulate him and see his carving display. Check out Bob’s carvings to see the variety and detail of his carving skills.
Raffle carvings – We had 50 raffle items (carvings and other items) offered this year by our club members. These items generate income so that we can offer free admission to our community. Check out the quality of these carvings and you’ll see why our visitors travel so far to our show each year to participate!
People’s choice carvings – The People’s Choice carving competition always brings some interesting carvings for display and creates a great deal of suspense until the results are announced. Carvings are returned to the owners at the end of the show. 1st place was a tie between Carl Beckendorf for his “Horse” and Norm Busta for his “Fish Display”. 3rd place was a tie between Angie Zeimetz for her “Cabin relief”, Dorrine Busta for her “Wood-burned Barn”, and Terry Brugger for his “Rainbow Trout”. Considering the number of People’s Choice votes counted, it is amazing there could be two “ties” but it just demonstrates how close the voting and competition can really be! Look for photos of these carvings to be on next year’s show advertising.
Candid photos from the show – Our club “paparazzi” – Wayne Hendrickson – captured the people and experiences at the show. It is always good to see all the people you might have missed during the weekend. Thanks Wayne!
