This year our Wahpeton fish woodcarving project was the Largemouth Bass. We challenged the 12 member class with carving and painting the popular fish in a three day workshop. All the carvers did a great job on their fish, which not only showed their skill, but patience. We always look forward to teaching at Wahpeton with Larry Longtine ,Ruben Brownlee, and the Min-Dak Woodcarving staff doing such a super job at organizing the event, along with the great facilities of North Dakota State College of Science, and the comradery of the north country carvers. We are looking to next years carving Wahpeton Carving Weekend when we will offer a choice of carving a Bluegill, Crappie or Perch.

The 2010 Gretna Woodcarving Retreat came and went with typical Nebraska ice, blizzard and white-out conditions. Twelve deer passing by the large windows of the 4H Center Lodge seemed to set the tone for a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere to create some great carving projects.

Over fifty carvers participated in a choice of individual carving or classes which included fish woodcarving, Western bust, or whimsy houses. The fish woodcarving class had a choice of bass, Bluegill or crappie. Some of the repeat carvers are working on multiple fish carvings for large mount displays.
