Great Post!

Where do I find info on the Silver Dollar City seminar
in 2005?  Is it 
and the same as the Ozark Mountain Woodcarvers

Mary is still working on the list.  She sent out the
invites a couple of months ago.  From what I heard the
last time I was at SDC (last weekend). Almost all of
those invited are returning.  The brochure is supposed
to be out in October.  The website will have them
listed the day she sends them out.  The newsletter is
located at http://www.ozarkmtnwoodcarvers.com/ and she
keeps the members uptodate on the seminar status.
