Attention FOAM carvers

There are TWO foam divisions this year. The standard open clbooty that is basically free of any rules, and a new Gunning bird clbooty in which all rules of the gunning birds apply in hopes of leveling the field for beginning carvers and competitors. This is a GREAT opportunity for some of the new guys to get involved in competition w/o having to go up against some of the veteran foam carvers.

How does one go about making a foam bird?  Gary with his longtail has inspired me as well as your work

The foam tutorial section is a great place to get started.
I wish I could send one but don't have time to make birds now. New job school and family is my time right now

Dangit Joe....I just got rid of one foam friend.  He moved all the way into wood and cork.  Now you are going the other way.  ::)

Guess it'll work.  I need a certain quota of friends that are foam carvers or I'll be labeled a "hater".  Up to you a Rowe now bud ;D

Joe, the next step is molding foam.  Prepare yourself for exile. Scott used to come to westlake/strongsville.  What more can I say?

Well unlike "some" or the way this place has been lately "most" I have an "open" mind when it comes to "carving" or to others "making" decoys.  I am only a "hack" no longer a "champ" so I figure I can "hack" a "foam decoy" just as well as I can "hack" a "wood" or "cork decoy".  Will it be "decor" or "fluffy"????  Maybe if I were a talented "carver" or "decoy" maker.  But I am only a weekend "hack" So with my "open" mind I will venture to "foam" and "oils".  I really hate when people put words into quotations constantly

You know why I haven't been there peckerhead. :)   

I'll still talk to you Joe.   If I still hang out with Rowe and accept his phone calls that should tell you I'm too picky about the people I talk to. ;D

Haha haha I know Scott you guys are awesome.  That's the thing about the carving community it's great!  A fun place to bust balls and even more fun when we all get together.  I just wish we could all get together more often.  I'm always nice to Rowe he's always packing heat!!!!!!! Lol
