2014 Kansas City Woodcarvers Show

Had a great time at the Kansas City Show. I volunteered to help out in the judge's area and this year's judge was Pat Moore from North Dakota, owner of Moore's Roughouts. I learned alot from her as she would take time to explain to exhibitor's how she evaluated a carving and which deserved a ribbon. I did receive three ribbons, second in Realistic Human Roughout, third in Realistic Human Bust and third in Deep Relief. I sold Merlin, Lone Elk and also four carved pencils. I sold Merlin before I had a chance to enter him in the competition, but money is better than a ribbon. My wife showed several of her woodburnings, but did not enter any. All in all a great show!

  1. Hey Randy,
    I want to thank you, once again, for all your help getting us unloaded and reloaded at the show. Without your help and that of all the other guys, there is no way we could have gotten set-up as quickly as we did.

    Your club should be proud of the great show it put on this past weekend. Under the direction of your new Show Chairperson, Sandy, all of you came together to put on a very high caliber event. I'm sure multi-year ex-Chairman Ed Zinger was pleased with the results.

    Please pass on our gratitude to the club for their help and patronage. We're already planning for our return next year.

  2. You're welcome Larry! It's always great seeing you and Carol. I have a club meeting tonight and will pass along your kind words.
    See you next year.
