Darrick Rasmussen furniture, Elephant Award
The Elephant Award for Darrick.
 It feels like we've been having a last hoorah for weeks now, which I'm sure the North Coast Brewery has been appreciating. A lot of 'I love you mans', cheers, some air guitar and even a few tears. Something which made things that much sweeter was the unexpected but very well-deserved Elephant Award Darrick received. If this were the high school yearbook, I think the Elephant would be considered Best All Around. I wish I could remember the translation of the hand-carved Danish phrase, and the poetic history behind it. For a woodworking program as soulful and humble as CR to make an example of Darrick like this is really exceptional. It is now his responsibility to choose next year's exemplary Elephant... Lastly, there have already been 3 SALES and the show is still open for another 2 weeks!
