Must you people keep reminding me of things I need to get done.. ARGHGGGHHHH!
Seriously, the TX show is always fun!
Nancy is going to be there, so you should come and pick her brain.. but don't tell her I said that.. she'll kick me in the butt.
Is this convention a big one? Are any of you guys entering anything? Are any of you attending? If so any of yall what meet up and have some drinks. It would be nice to put some faces with the names. I have only mounted 3 ducks is there a gategory for me, just for fun? Sorry for so many questions but you have to ask to know.
Yes, this is the big annual Texas Taxidermy Association Show.
Yes, I know that Wildthings and Harlequin will be, they will both probably be entering in the Masters Division, since this is my first year and I want to learn via critique so I will be entering a couple pieces in the Professional Division.
At least three of us will be attending, I know Wildthings will be there for the whole event, and since Harlequin lives so close I bet he will too. I will be driving in from Austin and back home again each afternoon, so I won't have as much time, but would still like to hang out with any ya'll that want to during the day.
Here is the breakdown as I know it of Divisions, please correct me if I'm wrong:
Youth Division - 16 and younger
Educational Division - No ribbons awarded, but critque is presented.
Amateur Division - Ribbons awarded, but little chance of getting a critque I've been told.
Professional Division - Ribbons awarded, critque available if asked for.
Master Division - Must have previously won two blue ribbons in Pro division and only three pieces get ribbons.
Studio Division - Pieces must be worked on by at least two different taxidermists.
Remember, until you reach Masters Division, all work is judged on its own against industry standards not against other pieces. So there can be lots of first place ribbons, just like in school there is always a chance for many kids in a class to get an A.
