It's October and that means it's time for the Catawba Valley Woodcarvers' annual competition held at the Hickory, NC convention center, October 31st. This is held in conjunction with Klingspor's Woodworking Shop Extravaganza. Its a good time and is usually well attended. The caricature division this year will be judged by the honorable Mark N. Akers and Arnold Smith, two well respected carvers in their own right. See attached link for more information.
