Spent the morning as the host volunteer at the Farmers Market Kids Art Tent. Made forty four wood fish cutouts for kids to paint, which is the exact number of children that stopped by. Had many examples of fish decoys, both completed and in progress, for people to check out too. Was a great morning sharing my passion with the community and discussing the art that is part of pike and sturgeon spearing.

Had a great time at The National Fish Decoy Associations 22nd Annual The Gathering. Amazed by how the quality level, of what my fellow carvers create, goes up another notch every year. Really tough competition, as always. Managed to place in three classes and be the lone Wisconsinite representing in the top placings for the contests.
Also excited to be elected to the Board of Director for the NFDA. Looking forward to bringing fresh ideas to the association.
