OK… been remiss… done a lot since the last post…
So it is long way past day one Ottawa… we finished the sculpture in three days putting us way behind on our tour schedule. (and for those that care, way over budget having to change return home flights) please check out the images under the pull down menu “World Tour 2013” and “Ottawa” on the menu bar above.
So we came home three days behind our planned arrival and jumped right into the promotional sculpture at the end of Main Street in Whitehorse (images posted as above under “Main Street”). We did it for Underhill Geometrics Ltd. because it is their 100th year of serving the public.
But today, we start the Challenge… ten teams will release the sculpture from the block of snow. (check out the images under “Challenge” in the pull down menu above) Carvers can work from now till Saturday morning at 10 when judging will take place… so come on down to Shipyards Park if you are in town or follow the work posted almost daily… the carvers are here to have fun and talk to the public.
2013-02-11 Ottawa Day One
Well after an early (2am) wake up in Chicago to catch the flight to Montreal (not Ottawa) we rented a SUV to drive back to Ottawa. The roads were good but you could see the results of the snow storm along he way. We got into Ottawa in time to greet the Premier and other dignitaries who had come to see the nearly finished sculpture we were doing for Yukon Days at Winterlude. After the greetings we began to work on the block. We decided to use a chainsaw to help remove the large amounts of snow necessary for this sculpture. We worked until dark. Karin our great travel agent has rebooked and extended our stay here in Ottawa in order for us to finish the sculpture. Which means we are going to be late starting the sculpture at the end of Main Street in Whitehorse.
