Dixon’s Gunmakers Fair of 2010 is now history and the Honourable Company of Horners was well represented. At the accoutrement judging, a total of twenty Judges Choice ribbons were awarded and Guild members achieved twelve. There were five ribbons awarded in special categories and Guild members received three, Best Historical, Best Folk Art and Madison Grant. Job well done!

Congratulations to David D. Miller of Mercer, PA on his advancement from Freeman to Journeyman while attending the Gunmakers Fair at Dixons’s. Dave had five horn objects juried according to the Honourable Company of Horners By-Laws, by the Awards Committee.

The theme of this years table display at Dixon’s was “Horn Objects” and it was well represented, including a weasel carved out of horn.

On Friday evening, just over 100 members and their guests attended the 6th annual summer reception at the grounds of the Jacobsburg Historical Society located in Belfast, PA.
