    While not a carver myself, I have really enjoyed this show in the past and encourage everyone to attend. The inclusion of carver clubs from the edges of Quinte, (including Bobcaygeon and others) adds to the range of examples and show entries. The beautiful, extraordinary works on display by aspiring and world-class carvers are really amazing. I especially enjoy the wildlife carvings. Who knows, the show could even inspire spring and summer to get here more quickly ! This is a few hours well spent indeed – plan to attend with the whole family! Lyle Bunn, Brighton.

    In 2016 there were a number of Youth entry carvings. However, I did not see any pictures or mention of them in the 2016 winners. I think having them included with the rest of the winners would be a great encouragement.
