CONGRATULATIONS!!! Your nomination is a 2016 Best of State Winner

I awoke this Monday morning to gloomy skies which threaten to provide a third day of rainy drizzly skies. Not the best way to start a week. Then, after taking care of the normal morning requirements, I opened my email and read the following from Nate Fairclough:


Your nomination is a 2016 Best of State Winner


The Complete Winners list can now be seen online at


 As a 2016 Best of State winner, you will be recognized at the Best of State Awards Gala, held Wednesday, May 18th at the Salt Palace Grand Ballroom. This black-tie event will once again be hosted by KUTV 2’s Mark Koelbel and Shauna Lake and features a double entree dinner with fabulous entertainment.

This brightened my day (week) beyond anything Mother Nature can throw at me. With this notification I am announcing that I have been honored with three awards for 2016, Carving, Handicrafts, and Sculpture.

In closing I offer my gratitude to all the hard working people who make the Utah Best of State such a huge success.
