***Charlotte 2020 Challenge. The Triad Woodcarvers has challenged the Piedmont Woodcarvers of South Carolina to see which club will enter the most carvings in the Charlotte Woodcarvers Showcase of Woodcarvings competition in February, 2020. Piedmont has accepted this challenge and all Triad Woodcarvers are encouraged to begin carving and commit to enter this competition. Details of the categories and divisions will be reviewed with all members in the near future. Winning Club will receive (hopefully) a free table at the 2021 Showcase. Additionally, Triad Woodcarvers will be eligible for incentive awards for carvings they enter in the Show. It is projected that if we average 5 carvings per carver – we will win. If we lose, we have to carve 10 Angels of Hope for the Piedmont Club – and our President has to carve a carving and present it to the Piedmont Club. Triad will use this Challenge to publicize our club and increase our membership in 2020 and beyond. Start your engines, err, knives!!***
We meet at Miller Park Recreation Center, 400 Leisure Lane, Winston-Salem, N.C. 27107
