This year the contest is being held at the ODCCA show in Westlake, OH - March 17th and 18th. Letters went out this week to the quailfying carvers. However, carvers can still qualify at the ODCCA show the weekend of the championship, so it's not too late if you haven't yet qualified. In order to qualify, you need to earn a first, second, or third place finish (in species, BOS not required) at an offical IWCA Style contest. If you didn't receive a letter and feel you should have, or have additional questions, please contact us to confirm.
