December 2010 Message from the Guildmaster

Merry Christmas

Get ready for the 15th Anniversary!  Now is the time to start planning for our annual HCH meeting and Horn Fair, to be held March 4th and 5th, 2011 at Morristown, NJ. The area is rich in 18th Century history.  This will be the 15th Anniversary of the Honourable Company of Horners.  Here is a taste of what you will experience.

There will be table displays with private collections of original horns and some of the finest horn work in the country, perhaps the world.  Members of the Hartley Group will be present to sign your personal copy of the The Hartley Horn Drawings.  The main attraction will be “The Masters’ Benches,” consisting of up to eight stations run by Master Horners.  Masters will instruct and demonstrate various methods and phases of horn work.  There will be a member’s horn competition including categories of: Traditional engraved, Contemporary engraved, Carved, Horn objects, and Horn and bag.

Colonial attire, worn by most attendees, will add color and originality to the event.  The event will close on Saturday night with a spectacular banquet, including 18th Century music and visit from General Washington. In addition an awards ceremony will be held, along with a raffle/auction of the finest accouterments made by world class artisans.

This will be a memorable event and should not be missed.  Information on costs, lodging, and logistical data will be available in the near future on the website and in the Horn Book.

This is a personal invite from me on behalf of the Honourable Company of Horners.

Sincerely,

Ed Long
HCH Guildmaster

    Hello,
    I am looking forward to this years Convention at Morristown, NJ, as I will FINALLY be able to attend as I have missed the last 3 years do to conflicts in scheduling. 

    Has a designated Hotel or Hotels been chosen so that a reservation can be made in advance to get good rates? Also a listing of costs for the dinner and a display table rate would be a very helpful.

    Regards,
    Phillip Montgomery
