The competition was held in the Bridegs Church upstairs meeting room which was an excellent venue. The turnout was good with 33 entries. Entries were received from 8:00 to 9:30am. Bob Bley received entries, Edgar whipple photographed, Claude Godcharles scribed and Jim Gott and Mike Lanahan did the judging. we owe a debt of gratitude to these, many others who helped and likewise to those who brought turnings to display and be judged. Lunch was good, Sandwiches, fruit salad and other goodies. All the turnings were well done, but the winners deserve special mention.
