Mid - Winter 
Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous

                               Year 2001
Ridgway Pennsylvania



A show to benefit the 
Make a Wish Foundation and YMCA

                     2001 - 59 carvers descended on the town of Ridgway, PA.  This event was successful thanks to the efforts of the residents of Ridgway, who went well beyond anything expected from the carvers from near and far - England, Germany, Canada, from South Florida , Scotland, France and the northeast coast of the U.S.  Enough can't be said about the hospitality of the people of Ridgway.  They all deserve a round of applause.  Now, here's some photos 


         The event was this year also the work of only a few people (and a few more) and the two fellows who deserve most if not all of the kudos! This is Rick and Randy Boni folks from Bootjack Mountain Studio. They pulled it off without a hitch.
