We are looking for good response for this Competition, so here are a few examples of the type of things you may wish to make and enter.

Here are many good ideas of the type of thing this Competition is looking for, so please enter and we look forward to seeing your entries.

The judging will start at about 7pm, get your entries registered as you arrive. The lathes will be in use during the judging, Joe Webster has arranged for 5 turners to man the machines, they have not been given any theme to follow so the subject matter may be very different for all the turners.
