2012 Contest Results

Fancy Call Contest 2012

The 2012 event featured 48 calls from 22 callmakers. The consensus among those in attendance was that this was one of the most impressive displays of call art that we have had entered at St. Charles. Many thanks to those that volunteered their time to help with the judging and scorekeeping.

Looking ahead to 2013, Kevin Poeschel will be organizing and conducting the event. We have organized a committee of volunteers to review the rules and classifications for next years contest. This is being done to clear any confusion determining the proper class for an entry. It has been several years since the rules were reviewed, modern tooling, equipment and techniques have prompted this action. As for the Reelfoot Lake Working Call contest, Brian Phillips has agreed to serve as the coordinator for that event. It was suggested at the business meeting that the duties for these contests be split regionally in order to help with personal travel costs. We need to thank both of these individuals for their interest and commitment to the CCAA.

This years Best of Show selection was a carved call from the Professional Class by callmaker Brian Meyer.
