2011 State Fair

 This year the State Fair exhibit was better than ever!  With a new section devoted to viewing stones there were a lot of questions from the public about what made these stones “special”. The visiting master and judge this year was Jim Doyle, who did a great job of scoring trees and stones. There were 55 trees entered, 12 of which were entered by Novice members, along with 17 stone entries. Many, many thanks to the members who worked to set up the exhibit, entered trees, worked at the exhibit and conducted demonstrations. Special thanks to Cheryl Sykora and company for the new viewing stone display and another great exhibit.
