Seeing as how you can't enter, can you send me some of the blanks you've just segmented. Bound to win with one of those.:ciggrin:

Can't see why you can't enter Jim It's us judging not you after all. Or am I being dim? I can see why everyone else thinks you shouldn't enter but that's a different thing.:bwink:

Jim
31-05-15, 12:30
It just doesn't seem etiquette that the organiser enters the competition Phil .. :ciggrin:

There's no reason why you couldn't enter Jim - First and foremost your a pen turner and should be able to show your skill

31-05-15, 15:06
I think you should enter Jim

donwatson
31-05-15, 18:58
I think you should enter Jim. You are subject to the same rules as everyone else ie all work will be judged by the members.:thinks:

Lons
31-05-15, 20:41
Yep
You should definitely enter Jim.

GeordieB
31-05-15, 20:46

+1 on you entering jim.

Grump
31-05-15, 23:05
Yeah why not Jim then you can win you're own prize back init?
Charge an entrance fee and have the dosh instead.

paulm
01-06-15, 07:38
+2 for you entering Jim and thats a good idea from Brian... why not charge an entrance fee?

I can see why you don't enter Jim. But as has already been pointed out. Your not judging the competition and nobody knows who made which pen. So I cant see a problem :thumbs:

Neil
01-06-15, 12:11
Cluck cluck cluck


Watch out Vic will be around with a new Keep calm and have a crap poster that says Dans a Man but Jims a Chicken.


We decided you can enter so there.

Phil Dart
01-06-15, 12:17
That's sorted then - and if you win and the embarrassment of awarding your own prize to yourself becomes too much to bear, just remember who's idea it was in the the first place that you should enter :frenchkiss:

Yep and don't I know it I only started my blank yesterday, I think I am pushing it a bit and I still have holes to drill and a glue up that is without turning and finishing the pen. That will teach me to go clowning around and playing with toys:goesred::goesred::goesred: That is on top of a bowl for another competition on another forum.
