2012 Sioux Empire Woodcarving Exposition

This year three additional days have been added to the schedule for the 79th Annual Sioux Empire Fair.  The traditional six-day fair, starting each year during the 2nd week of August will now begin on Saturday, Aug. 4th, and run all the next week through Sunday, Aug. 12th .

Volunteers have already started signing up for security shifts and for Artist of the Day, but having someone at the exhibit for all those extra time slots will be difficult.  If you would like to sign up for a security shift or Artist of the Day,  email:   or phone: 605-359-7067.

Last Meeting

The regular Third Saturday Meeting of the S D Woodcarvers, Inc. was held  May 19th at the Center for Active Generations.  A continuation of the chip carving project from last month explored the art of "gouge chip carving".  Samples of this type of chip carving can be found at

Attendance was lower than usual, so a review of gouge chip carving is planned for the June meeting.
