Visitors are Always Welcome
From the President
First and most important, I hope this newsletter finds each of you safe and in the best shape possible. Our state took a big hit from the recent Hurricane Harvey. I have heard about several of our members in the southeast Texas area that have suffered some damage and loss from the storm. We wish each of you a speedy recovery and we pray that all will be better in the near future.
We hope you are all planning to come out to the 2018 Spring Roundup with the Texas Wood Carvers Guild. We will be returning to Cleburne for the second time. I think many were surprised by the facilities and event that was held there last year. We are looking forward to another great event.
The show will be using a similar format as has been used in the recent past. Please review all the show details in this newsletter. Remember we have a new show chairman this year. I know Robert Rangel will do us an outstanding job. Get those carvings ready to compete and be judged. Prize money will be awarded. Clubs do not forget about the club carving completion—read about the details and get everyone involved.
As we did last year, for those that can only be with us on the weekend, we will have a limited amount of instruction seminars going on during the show. See the Instructor page for more details.
On Sunday afternoon, the Texas State Whittling Competition will take place. Novice, Intermediate and Open divisions will be up for grabs. Sharpen those knives and be ready for this ever fun event.
As you register, don’t forget to buy those banquet tickets. On Thursday we will have a great evening with the meal, awards, and auction items. There will be a chance to win some raffle prizes during the week, also.
I know the real important stuff is the carving time. I have been told by our VP-Alan that we have some new instructors on the list and that many of the favorites are going to be back with new projects. Please sign up for classes, but read about the new policy about last minute changing of classes that was passed by the TWG Board in this newsletter.
You cannot love the TWG without loving its people. But we need a few of those folks to step up and help us out. Check out the article about nominations and open positions.
It is going to be a great Spring Roundup. I hope you are making your reservations and plans now to be in attendance. See you there.
Greetings! I hope that this edition of the newsletter for the Texas Woodcarvers Guild finds all of you doing well. Many folks in our country have been through many major ordeals this year and our hearts go out to them.
