Some of the 2008 Carvers



REPORT from June 2008


We would like to thank all the carvers for coming to Addison this year. We hope everyone had a good time. The weather was not bad until Auction time, and then it rained, but we did get the Auction in. Im sure the prices would have been better if the weather had cooperated. We try our best to make your time in Addison enjoyable and profitable.

We were again pleased to have ECHO as our exclusive Chainsaw Sponsor this year and would like to thank them for their generous donations of cash, saws, safety equipment, clothing and oil
