A weekend at the Spokane Carving Rendezvous brought classes, friendship, potlucks, and some great weather. I was able to go to three classes, a seahorse and a relief brown trout, which need to be painted yet. I also had a class in Kolrosing. I taught a class on carving a santa ornament that went well. We were able to enter a contest in carving a spoon with the second part to be announced on Sunday. We were divided into two teams and had a relay to carry water with our spoon to a container and see which team got the most water. It was fun for us and the bystanders rooting on the teams.
