After a grueling 5 days of carving snow, the blocks are done. Cold hands and feet, aching muscles and joints, and tired bodies will be forgotten in the days to come. Some of our carving friends, including Carole, will be heading onto events in Yellowknife and Whitehorse, so they don’t get much rest. Good luck to all of you.
We are very happy with our finished sculpture, or at least we are happy with what we could control. As people walked by, they could see all the elements that we put into our sculpture. The first one they recognized was the polar bear on top followed by the seal and the fish on the one side. Then on the final day as Theressa worked on the kayaker, they saw it and many were impressed.
Shout out goes to Gary, Christel and all the volunteers for all their hard work. Thanks. Also, we can’t forget Kara Tinkler who helped us out, at first moving snow and then actually working on the block. She shaped, scrapped, sanded and patched holes. Thanks Kara.
