A pair of rookies past and present shared a quick conversation today at Craig City Park. Mark Mahorney, of Kremmling, a first-year competitor in last year’s Whittle the Wood Rendezvous, spoke with John Parker, of Nederland, who is competing in the 12th annual competition for the first time this year. “I have been looking for a carving contest for a while, and I ran into Faye (Braaten) who told me about this one,” Parker said. “I jumped on it and signed up on the last day they were accepting carvers.” This year’s tree carving contest kicked off today in City Park.
