May 2001

Our carving theme for this month is one of America's favorite comic strip characters, "Hagar The Horrible". Carving blanks will be given to all participating members, gratis !!! Rod Flinchbaugh, Conewago's "Master Carver", will lead us step by step through the carving process. The Club's business meeting will start promptly at 1:00 p.m. and the carving session will start at 2:00 p.m. Members participating in the carving may stay later in the afternoon past our regular club meeting adjournment to take advantage of Rod's presence for additional help. PLEASE NOTE: This project is a knife and gauges project . NO POWER TOOLS to be used at the instruction site. If you wish to use power you must do so at home. All participants will take home their carvings for final touchup and finishing and bring them back to the Club's June meeting for judgement and awarding of extra points. Remember, all participants will start off with 5 points toward the year's annual award event.

If you have never attempted to knife and gauge carve any comic characters or caricatures, now is you chance !!! Put aside your fears and trepidations (we should have ample Band-Aids available) and help make this carve-in a huge success. CHALLENGE YOUR ABILITIES TO FURTHER HEIGHTS.
