For those of you who like to carve spoons the Whittlers are also setting a fine example to follow. Note the exquisitely carved ivory spoon on the lower right corner of the case.

This month the presidents Challenge is to carve a 4" x 4" relief carving. This can be anything that fits in a 4 inch cube. The subject and wood is your choice and you have until the Saturday meeting in November. Some have already started so go go go.
Around the Lake Give'r Take 30 www.aroundthelakegivertake30.ca is a 30 km run around Cultus Lake, British Columbia. This is a very tough endurance run with lots of hill climbing and descending . Each year I carve a walking stick for the top male and female finishers. I used to run but my knees won't allow it any more so I cycle. 7850 km this year and counting. I get a real charge out of carving something for a runner and going to the race brings back lots of memories. I hope it is a great race again this year and that it is very competitive. The grapes are almost ripe!
