When September arrives each year, my wife and I are invited to spend a week with my sister and her husband at their beach condo in North Myrtle Beach. I think I could spend even more time at this particular condo. UM!!! A beach condo!!! This is the perfect location to carve and enjoy good snacks and maybe a favorite beverage. But hey, it’s the beach….. Enough said for now.
September also allowed us to once again participate with the Matthews Alive Festival for 3 days of carving and interacting with over 2000 visitors. Once again the club gave over 200 hours of support to the festival which was a tremendous success. A big thank you goes out to Bob Benston for heading up this event and would also like to thank all members that gave their time to help the club for a successful festival.
Jim Hart, wood supplier from Wisconsin, stopped in for a planned visit and provided some quality wood to the members and a chance to replenish the clubs wood locker. This was a great afternoon of fellowship while looking through many types of wood. Thank you, Jim Hart, for your quality visit.

I would like to remind each of you that the Charlotte Woodcarvers Club show is now only 18 weeks away. I know that February seems to be in the distance but if you take away three holiday weeks for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years that leaves us 15 weeks to complete our carvings for the show. Better get going on that favorite carving.
Be sure to check out the clubs calendar for all information on upcoming club events and the latest on club news. Have fun carving and make that commitment to enter a carving or two for the 2018 Showcase.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY…… Have fun carving and:
A carver’s knife in wood is much like a steak knife in a stake… They both cut and the results are rewarding
