Chainsaw Carving Schedule 2012

Hello to all the fabulous citizens of Seldovia, along with the many travelers, visitors and art seeking explorers!  Welcome to our amazing Memorial Day Weekend!  Click here or on the poster to the left  to see the schedule in full size.

We kicked off the weekend yesterday, when our Carvers came to town on the Seldovia Bay Ferry.  Thank goodness, as the Seldovia Bay Ferry was able to load all the tools and equipment for the carving event with their crane.   This saved us – as often, due to the amount of equipment/tools required for the carving competition, many carvers opt to come over on the Alaska Marine Highway with their vehicles.  But this year, the AMHS took over a 2 week break from Seldovia – which has been a big disappointment to our community.  (So many visitors begin their summers in Seldovia on Memorial Day Weekend and bring over a car/camper or truck loaded with 4 wheelers, boats, etc., and many folks return for the summer months on Memorial Day weekend – and without the ferry – they are delayed an extra two weeks this year. ) We are hopeful that this schedule will not be the newly adopted schedule for Memorial Day weekend in the future!

This will be a great weekend, lots of activity between the Human Powered Fishing Derby – which kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) as well as the Chainsaw Carving Exhibition – both events run all weekend long! You won’t want to miss coming to vote on People’s Choice for the Chainsaw Carving Exhibition Sunday at 1:00pm, and the Fish Derby Fish Fry & Potluck at 4:00pm!   Stick around another night, as on Monday night we will have a Seldovia Arts Council concert at SBE!

We wanted to thank our many sponsors of this event, as there are quite a few Seldovian businesses supporting this endeavor, and we are grateful!  Please click on the above photo to view the schedule full size!
