March 2011 Message From The Guildmaster

March 5th, 2011 is the final day of registration for our annual meeting at Fort Roberdeau in the Sinking Spring Valley area outside Altoona, PA. Because of unforeseen circumstances at the original site, the meeting in Altoona had to be arranged hastily. This change of location will not prevent the meeting from being a success.

There will be two large collections of original screw-tip powder horns on display. All registered members will be eligible for a drawing on a commemorative priming/day horn. Blowing horns made by Roland Cadle and Billy Griner will be on display for the membership in attendance to judge. Who will win bragging rights for the best blowing horn; the North, or the South?

Let’s not forget the horn competition, with top of the line competitors; the judges will have a difficult challenge determining winners. The main attraction will be the hands on work stations manned by our Master Horners. Look for the Masters turning, pressing, repairing, carving, engraving, and staining horn. Finally, on Saturday evening the event will culminate with a banquet, awards ceremony, and raffle.

Do not hesitate; get your registration form along with your check payable to the “HCH” to Treasurer Art DeCamp, 2210 Acorn Circle, Huntingdon, PA 16652 in the mail TODAY. Print out the meeting itineray here.

The event promises to be a good time, see you there.

Ed Long, Guildmaster
