Here are the competition Entries for the July 2016 Competition. Please don't tick the Like Box and please don't comment on any individual pen until after the voting ends. The Voting will end on Friday 5th. August at 9 p.m.

As Jim is otherwise engaged I don't want to bother him with switching on the voting/nomination box so the vote will be manual. To vote for a pen PM me your nomination, but Please put the Nomination as the subject to the PM for example No. 3 that will tell me you are voting or nominating for pen No. 3 I don't want to open tons of PMs to see which pen you are voting for so please make sure you put your vote/nomination in the subject or your vote will not be counted.

Every member can vote once for the pen they think is the best, for whatever reason. You can't vote for your own pen.

Good luck to everyone who entered the competition

These competi tion entries get harder and harder to call each month. The standard across the board is always so high.
Never the less, I've cast my vote, so it's either opened up the lead or evened the score. Well done everybody - a terrific show of ideas and talent.

It's a tough call :thinks:

We have had 27 Votes and 40 individual people look at the thread so please remember to vote. We have a leader in front with 10 votes, next with 5 votes and after that with 4 votes so if everyone who has looked at the thread will vote they can make all the difference to the outcome.

Mind you there are lots of people who haven't even bothered to look at the thread especially overseas members, maybe they are just happy to post their pens and receive praise, but are not prepared to take part in the Forum beyond their own creations, ah well:thinks:

Vote as soon as possible, voting ends on Friday.

If you haven't voted, please do so before the deadline. there are still enough people who haven't voted to completely change the present situation, the more votes the more representative First Place will be.

The last day to vote so make it count and support those who entered the competition. At the moment the vote stands at 10, 7 and 4 for the top 3 so who will win a fantastic box of the AussieBurls Pen Blank Seconds and Shorts is still very much open. If the 15 people who have seen the thread and haven't yet voted would vote it is still wide open.
