17th EVART ROUNDUP
June 3 - 6(noon), 2015

Held at the Osceola County Fairgrounds in Evart, Michigan
Evart is located in the center of the lower peninsula.
The Fairgrounds is 1/2 mile west of the Evart traffic light on US10
 


We would like to thank everyone for attending and teaching at the Roundup. It has been a
wonderful, rewarding time. Due to health concerns of the folks who have always
handled the "Evart Roundp" chips have been passed on to our good faithful
friend and carver Floyd Rhadigan. The 2014 Roundup is
history and was a very
successful Roundup which topped last year for attendance and workshops.
Thank you to all who came and supported Floyd in this new adveneture
which helped to make it your Roundup to remember.
**Thanks to all and we will see everyone next year.
Bob and Sandy Holder, Jim and Barb Graham,
John Crawford, Judy Morgan, Rod and Susan Walker.

This is a great opportunity to try out the many different types of carving.

There is no cost for workshops - however
there is a moderate cost for workshop supplies.
All instruction is totally volunteer and we happily welcome anyone
willing to give a little time to help others learn. Email us if you
