Evart Woodcarving Round Up June 3, 2014

The Evart Woodcarving Round Up officially starts tomorrow at 8AM.  The following photos were taken the afternoon and evening prior to the start of the round up.

Some of the campers and coaches that carvers arrived in.  I truly think that most of the carvers travel in some sort of deluxe rig.  But there are several tents.  Me, I stay in a motel.  These rigs will be arriving all night.

After dinner, a gathering of woodcarver musicians for a jam session.  As the event goes on there will be several additional folks join in with their instruments.  No electrified instruments allowed.
While the jam session was going on, there was a chain saw demonstration in another area.
The round up format is very informal.  It happens at a small county fair grounds, where there are several buildings that are set up for multiple "classes".  I'll post a more detailed class list tomorrow.  The way the round up operates is that an instructor sets up with a few tables, and it's a first come first served.  There is no charge for the instruction, the instructors are volunteers.  The only charge is for the wood, whether it be a blank-cut out, or a rough out.
