There are two competitions each month. One is for you to make that month’s challenge, there are two sections, Beginners and More experienced. The winner gets a £5 voucher, which can be used to pay their next month’s Meeting Fee or for the shop or books.
The other competition is for any piece of your turning that hasn’t been entered in this competition.
The items are judged in various ways and the points added up for the best 10 month’s entries. The winner is awarded the Turner of the Year trophy, The Alan Spargo Shield, which is named after one of the founders of the Club. The idea is to encourage members to bring in a piece each month.
There is also the Graddage Trophy awarded at the Annual Seminar Day. This is for a piece made in the previous year.
So whatever your skill, no matter what you have made, please bring it to the club meetings. The Table competition pieces are listed below.
