Good afternoon. Loon Day 2018 is coming up soon on May 12th. I will be accepting shorebird entries for the shorebird contest by mail this year. Participants may also turn them in the morning of the Loon Day competition. The shorebirds can be any size or style. They may also be painted any way you wish. The shorebirds will be judged from 15 feet by a panel of 3 judges. They must be fashioned with a stake that will easily be able to display the bird in beach sand. Please private message me if you wish to send a bird by mail or have any questions about the competition. If you wish to mail in your submission I must receive it no later than May 11th.
Keep in mind there will also be a duck decoy competition that day. Also of note is that any duck or shorebird decoy you make and turn in for the competition becomes property of the Core Sound Decoy Carvers Guild and will be auctioned off after the competitions are over with and have been judged.
CORE SOUND DECOY COLLECTORS - There will be a Core Sound Goose and Brant decoy artifacts display during the Loon Day Event inside the H. Curt Salter Building. Anyone wishing to display their birds will need to contact me and give me a heads up that you will be bringing them that day. I have personally seen some of the best decoys that the Core Sound area had to offer during this display in previous years. Lets keep it rolling and thanks for your support. The folks in attendance will have a chance to vote for their favorite decoy of the display and the owner will have bragging rights for the ownership of the best Core Sound Goose or Brant.
