Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, or Perch were the fish projects for the Gretna Retreat this year. The class did a great job on capturing the realistic colors of these fish. Other carvers attending participated in classes including butternut faces, walking canes, whimsical houses, flutes, and chip carving. With the convenience of the classes and cafeteria located in the lodge, the cabins close by, and the location overlooking the beautiful Platte Valley just outside of Omaha, Nebraska, it made a perfect Woodcarvers Getaway.

The Doane Experience 2011 at Doane College Crete, Nebraska was a very creative week for the carving students in our fish carving class.  All the fish were carved and air brushed with great attention to detail.  Gary was  pretty much on his own as
solo instructor,as  I was part of the Doane Committee that organized the Event. Working with Rohn Collins, Leonard Stenneche, and Sherry LaTendresse made me realize the effort, hard work and dedication it takes to put on such an Event.  What a Great Experience it was to meet so many carvers and instructors in such a relaxing setting.  Thanks to all 300 hundred students and instructors who attended.
