    It may be extended. With so much on offer as prizes it would be a shame if there were only 5 people enter the competition, I would prefer to see it cancelled than to see another competition with only 5 entrants, but that's just my opinion.

    Guy's guy's....there is no question whatsoever of cancelling the competition!

    I simply asked for feedback as to whether folks would prefer to see it deferred until after Christmas, or whether it should go ahead in December as planned, and if that were the case, would it be useful to extend the entry deadline a little. I don't know where the notion of cancelling it came from - it is not going to be cancelled.

    There is money in the kitty to fund some substantial prizes with which to end the "competition year" and I for one would like to see as many entries as possible. Members' opinions matter, because its the members that are the whole point of this forum. Hence the question - to seek the opinion of the members.

    I think extending the End Date will give those who work for a living a chance to join in.

    When I was working I packed far more into a day than now, I come back to my thought and reasoning a thousand words have been invested in a December Competition, I go on record to say clearly Competitions are not my cuppa. I base this on along period of running, adjudicating, participating.

    In fairness to Peter I have entered each one this year to support Peter who has given incredible time and effort to this project, no regrets.

    To back down or delay is simply putting off a decision I made months ago to enter the December Competition in December. Either way I will submit my pen this month in good faith.

    Best wishes for Christmas, sure we will not postpone that. I make an appeal for entry from as many as possible to prove loyalty to the forum not persons.

    Peter.

    What is the theme, or have I missed something?
    Kind regards John.

    With the way things are going for me at this time of year extending would be a great option but then it takes it away from being a Christmas competition. Unfortunately I have not been able to enter the last couple of competitions that Peter he done a great job on one to running out of time and the other being laid up and only just getting back in to the shed to turn some simple bits.

    As it is because of being laid up I am now 3 - 4 weeks behind on finishing some presents luckily they don't need to be sent and I started them early enough so I should be able to complete.
