Dear Woodcarver,

The 30th anniversary of the annual Woodcarving Rendezvous at Branson, Missouri has been scheduled for June 5th through June 10th, 2016. The Rendezvous is a five day woodcarving/wood burning seminar designed for the beginner as well as the more experienced. Classes are from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday in the convention center of Compton Ridge Campground. Traditional after hours carving projects will be available all who want to participate. The carving area is in an air conditioned facility that will be locked each evening so that tools and equipment may be left over night. (Be sure to bring a table/clip-on lamp to aid in your lighting.)

A Rendezvous Barbecue Dinner is scheduled for Sunday evening, June 1st on a pay basis, at approximately $10.50 per person including tax. "Check-in" and the Barbecue Dinner will allow carvers to meet old and new friends, view the carving area, and be eligible to win door prizes which will include carvings carved by the instructors. Notification of "check-in", the barbecue dinner, and a schedule of events will be provided approximately two weeks prior to the seminar.

The location of the seminar is in the scenic resort town of Branson, Missouri located in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. Non-carvers and family members will have many activities to occupy their time during carving hours. However, in the tradition of the Rendezvous, craft classes (optional) will again be scheduled for non-carvers.

The cost of the seminar is $185.00, a minimum of $95.00 (non-refundable) is required to make a reservation. The remaining $90.00 (non-refundable)is due by March 1, 2016.

The Compton Ridge Campground and Motel are recommended for those attending the seminar.
