    Who wants a December competion, or should it be January?

    It's going to happen - its just a question of when. December is a busy time for lots of us, and you may prefer to put it off for a month, or maybe extend the entry deadline in to January.

    There are some juicy prizes on offer for this one, including an Axminster compression mandrel and Mistral pen kits, and even prizes just for entering, so please speak up and don't be shy. The competition needs to be well supported with entries, so please would you post here and tell me when you think it should happen.

    I would like it this month plenty of time so far to prepare.Putting things off not the way to go in my opinion. I feel sad the entries are so few but only one entry per person did my best.

    Was there intended to be a Jan competition that this would then flow over onto? If not then I don't see a problem with the deadline being extended to the end of the first/second week Jan.

    It's probably best to extend it a couple of weeks into January so that those who are too busy before Christmas have some time. Those who have the time are not affected by extending it. Even extending it until the end of January might be the way to go.

    I've no preference to be honest. I haven't even thought about what to make for this one yet but either way I will get something done in time

    I can understand some being too busy coming up to Xmas. When I had my business there just wasn't plenty time to complete jobs before the holidays so worked long hours so I'm happy to have it extended.

    Had second thoughts about this. It was listed as a December competition so a December competition it should be. I would not like to see it cancelled. When we talk about being too busy come on be real. A couple of hours to produce a pen for the competition is not too much to ask.

    I have entered every competition ( not very successfully I may add ) since becoming a member on this forum. The number of entries for the competitions in relation to the number of members has always been poor. Just look at the November competition only 5 entry's. I fully understand that some members are not interested in competitions and I fully support their feelings. I enter for one reason alone that is to support the guy who puts bags of time and effort into putting that bit extra into the Forum by organising them (Thank you Peter ).

    I think that the people who are intent on entering the December competition have their plans on what they are going to do and are preparing to meet the deadline regardless of other pressures that they may have at this time of year.

    Please let things stand as they are and leave the competition deadlines as they were originally planned.
