On September 15th and 16th, 2018 the Central Coast Woodcarving Club hosted their 41st annual show at the Cambria Vet’s Hall in Cambria, CA.
This year the show attracted just over 400 visitors to view the carving displays of local and California carvers. Club members and visiting carvers donated 33 projects to be raffled off to the public to support the Club’s annual fund raising drive. Over 360 visitors voted for their favorite “Peoples Choice” project entered by sixteen carvers. (see results and photo’s below below)
Matt Pomerico’s Paso Robles carving group and other CCW members provided enough hand carved pieces to allow for the 21 piece Christmas Nativity set to be offered for the silent auction. Ten bids were offered with Matt Pomerico submitting the highest bid at $300., a steal.
Carving competitions were held both days with eight competitors on Saturday and six on Sunday. First place collected a $50 dollar prize, $35 for second and $25 for third in each group ( see results and photos below).
Thanks to all CCW members and their spouses who helped in the preparation for and
for donating your time at the show.
Mark your calendar for September 21 & 22, 2019 for the 42nd annual adventure in wood carving shows.
