    This will be the 7th carving meet we have hosted but also the second Memorial Day Carving meet! Last year the weather was beautiful and we were ousting in the yard.

    Let’s say 10-4 but earlier and later is fine too.

    We get VERY busy at our Church over the summer so this is the last opportunity for a get together here until the autumn.

    This is done at the Church I serve as Pastor. Directions can be found at www.cpcchester.org

    Please bring some canned food for the Chester Food pantry as a "thank-you" to the church for letting us use the property!

    Much more than green wood carving.

    I usually set up a few chopping stumps and supply plenty of fresh green wood for carving.

    If outside I will bring over our fire pit for atmosphere, cooking, and easy disposal of scraps.

    We should also have a gas grill available for cooking as well.

    People of all skill levels are welcome to attend as there is plenty of knowledge and tools to share/try out.

    Others have brought things to demo like fly tying, arrow cresting, birch bark crafts, all sorts of things.

    Of course there is the food. Everyone is encouraged to bring something to share though that is certainly not a requirement. The kitchen is available to re-heat things. Chester Meats is also only 1/2 mile away on Main Street for goodies and we have some great restaurant in our little village, though most people eat the communal food-fest in the kitchen.

    Please peruse the previous event threads linked above, offer your opinions in the thread, tag others I might have missed.

    RSVP at the bottom of this post if you can make it!

    Chris, unfortunately we have a family commitment on the 25th that I cannot break. I will miss seeing everyone. Looking forward to the next.

    Michelle reminded me that someone mentioned during the last meet that we should ask BCUSA members to bring some shelf-stable foods to donate to the Chester Food Pantry as a "thank-you" to the community Presbyterian Church for allowing us to use the properly so frequently. So, bring some canned or boxed food to donate our local food pantry that helps support 50+ local families that receive regular aid from the Food Pantry.

    I was just talking with our tree guy at the chruch, and we might be removing a maple from the front yard that is about 170 years old! If so, there will be some vintage, chruch maple at the carving meet. We can make "Holy spoons"!

    Bob is right, unfortunately it looks like I'll be out this time. However, if @bobc grabs some wood for me I wouldn't complain ;)

    Can't wait for the next one!

    I hope to stop over for I don't know yet how long in the afternoon.

    If anyone wants to join me 8am-10am in the morning in Roseland, NJ to paddle with 10 year old girl scouts on the Passaic River just let me know by private message. :)

    Wood has been procured and we have three species to play with: black birch, a little bit of maple, and some cherry! A big pot of black birch and spicebush tea is brewing right now and will be cool for tomorrow. Also a full kielbasa from Chester Meats for the grill. The weather should be beautiful and we will be carving outside!

    See you all tomorrow!
