Up and Coming!

Next Meeting: May 10, 2011

Challenge for May:
Anything you can drink out of. Good luck!

LAST CHANCE! Bring any items to contribute for the Black and White Fundraiser to send an abused child to camp this summer!

A big THANK YOU goes out to the Idaho Artistry in Wood board, for their gift of $500 to be used to encourage members to enter items in next year’s show. It’s not too early to start planning your entries!

The bowl of the month was made by Brian Lowry and won by Jon Gurnett


The March Challenge was a finial.

Congratulations to Rich Howard, first place in the beginner class and Jason Madson, first place in the Pro class. My apologies to both winners, I did not note which entries were yours so I placed a picture of all. Be patient with me, I am still learning this reporter gig. Thanks to all who entered the challenge. A little friendly competition is what inspires us all to strive for perfection in our art.
