30 Jul 19 – Andrew Hall Demo and Competition Table Results
ANDREW HALL DEMO
As we promised, an excellent evenings demonstration plus entertainment from Andrew Hall, it was surprising how much he managed to cram into his allotted time. Starting with a warm up exercise making a full sized bird box and up cycling a plastic tube into the bargain. This was then followed by a lidded egg bowl and then popped in a small goblet shaped egg cup to finish off with. The evening then ended with a song, accompanied on the wine box “blues guitar” and backed by a packed audience.
The audience came from far and wide and included members from other clubs and new visitors to us. A big thank you to everyone, especially Andrew who made it a great evening. We were treated to a full display of Andrew’s previous work including his world famous hats and bowl guitars.
We had entries in all three classes for the competition table, although, since the new rules on the number of entries required (3 minimum) no points were gained in the Novice and Club Class. This is to prevent individuals being promoted up the classes too soon by default wins. A great display of high standard work and good to see previously demonstrated items being replicated. Congratulations to the winners.
Novice Class Winners
1st Andrew Harris, 2nd Nick Windley
Club Class Winners
1st Alan Buckle, 2nd Mick Close
Open Class Winners
1st Peter Barrack, 2nd Tony Cooke and 3rd Chris Fisher & Ric Sutherland
What’s up Next?
Next meeting is the Hands on Night on the 13th Aug 19,
The Club will be at the Chestnut Weekender, this coming weekend at the Spalding, Springfields. You can pay on the door, but you won’t get the goodie bag that you would with advanced tickets. See HERE for more details.
Then don’t miss the all day demo by Pat Carroll on Monday 5th Aug 19, starting at 2pm. Pay on the door if not got tickets already.
and to end the month off, on the 27th Aug 19, we have Joey Richardson demonstrating for us. See you all there.
Don’t forget to book your space on the Training Course on the 21st Sept 19, see the Training Days page.
The Lovells Workwear order (not Ashley Iles as I said on Tuesday night!) has been placed and I expect to receive in within 3 weeks. I would hope to see it before the next hands on night, but we are in the hands of Lovells, so I can’t guarantee it. I will endeavour to put a news post out once they have arrived, please pay and collect your item(s) from the Club Shop.
Christmas function is now going to be at the Coningsby Community Hall. Tickets on sale now at £12 for members and £15 for Guests. See the Event page for more details.
