Default Chipfest

Not to outdone by all the fairs and shows going on around the country, the old guys got together at my cottage on the Bruce and had our own "Chipfest".
We started out slowly on Friday night with Myself, ST, and Al, when Jim showed up and started the action that lasted well into the late evening.
Jim headed to his camp early the next morning and we started to carve. Near the end of the day Colin showed up and Jim came back for a while. A lot more coffee drinking and talking took place and some of us got a bit of smoke in our eyes as well.
The auction on Sunday didn't go well because of the lack of a completed piece of sculpture, but we had a bit of fun and may do it again next year without the rain.

Thanks for looking,

Bob

Well next year it would be cool if you made it an international event. I know an Old fella that makes chips and speaks Canagian and Amereecan who will brave long distances and cross wide rivers to be laught at.

Looks like ya ancient chip busters had a great time. Good on ya!

Sorry about that Bob, but I bet you could see our campfire all the way across Lake Huron. They made me go out in the rain and sat in the Wine Bar end of my boat house looking out the picture window at the fire.

Like you said , maybe next year.

Bob
