Carving at 2 Different Parks This Week

 Friday September 4th we are carving from 10 AM to Noon at the park where the Kennewick Community Center is. This Community Center is where we normally carve prior to the Corona Virus. If you come to join us bring a lawn chair and we will be sitting 6 foot apart from each other. And bring a mask if you want to get closer to anyone to talk.

We are also having a class by Ron Lundy.  So if you want to come and join us call Ron to let him know so he can have enough wood for all. There will be a small charge for the wood!

We are meeting here as Columbia Park has an Air Show that day and there is a charge to enter the park.  Below is a picture of what we will be carving.

 FAREWELL AND HAPPY TRAILS to carver Gordon Whitson. Gordon and Cheryl moved to the Tacoma area this month to be near their daughter. He is a long term member of TCWC and received many awards for his carvings at our local show. He is also the founding leader of Mid-Columbia Woodcarvers in Pasco.

Spokane Rendezvous

After reviewing the latest news on Covid-19 and discussions with President Doug Jones and Rendezvous Chairman Roger Storey, a decision to CANCEL the 2020 Rendezvous has been made. A primary factor is the likelihood that the limitations of social separation will be extended by Gov. Inslee up to or including the beginning of June and the reality that the contagion has not yet been totally squashed and could easily return in a second peak if safeguards are dropped too soon.
Keep carving at home and stay safe.

Columbia Park Carving

Some of us are carving at Columbia park as our normal places we carve at are closed.

We are carving on Thursday at 1 PM to 3 PM.
And Friday at 10 AM to 12 Noon

 We take our own lawn chairs, water and a hat to keep the sun off our head.  Getting out feels really good.

We normally have 6 to 7 carvers, not just men.

We carve near the gazebo that has picnic tables. The gazebo is west of the the Edison street entrance to Columbia Park about an 8th of a mile on the river side of the road.

The picture below was taken  at the Edison street entrance where we met the first week carving at the park.
