Carvers Meeting


The Carvers



REPORT from June 15,16,& 17, 2006



We would like to thank all the carvers for coming to Addison this year. We hope everyone had a wonderful time. The weather was great, maybe a little too hot. We tried our best to make your time in Addison enjoyable and profitable.

We were 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.

Jerry France (aka Grandpa Elf) again prepared a great fish fry on Wednesday night. The hush puppies from Randy Everett were outstanding again with his secret recipe. It was also fun to watch him cook them, when we could get him to stop talking and cook. The peach cobbler for dessert by Don Winner (Carol Briar really made them) was very good.


AND NOW FOR THE RESULTS:

48 Chainsaw Carvers and 11 Chisel Carvers were at the festival this year.
