|"Rocky" - Woodcarving by Bob Hershey|
With my NY contingent (Rob & Jim) accompanying me we set off for a one-day visit to the show (the show is held for 2 days).
East Berlin is a quiet little town in south central Pennsylvania that is home to a well established carving community that is home to an array of carvers with different interests and an array of skill levels. The club has a well engaged membership from top to bottom. So it was not a surprise that their show and competition should be well attended. CCA members and competitors were in attendance but the show also displayed talent in several other areas (chip carving, spoon carving, pyrography, fish and bird carving to mention just a few.
After the show on Saturday a banquet was held, followed by entertainment. The show was complete with silent auctions and demonstrations and is worth a day trip...well done Conewago!
That's the latest here...the winds are beginning to blow, the leaves have turned and are starting to fall, All Hallows Eve approaches...IT'S CARVING SEASON! My favorite time of the year when the carving juices start to flow...I am carving, are you?
