          Alan Spargo Shield

The Monthly club competition has been very successful  with impressively high standards of work being displayed each month. This competition is for the Alan Spargo Shield which is presented annually to the winning turner of the year. Pieces are judged each month and points awarded, the member with the most points at the end of the year being the winner.
At our annual Seminar, members compete for the Graddage Trophy. All members are eligible but the piece must have been produced within the previous twelve months. 
                                                                                                           There is an additional competition each month.                         The full scheme is detailed here.

In order to encourage more participation in competitions an additional competition is run in accordance with the programme below, covering 2 entry classes. Experienced and Inexperienced. (The competitor deciding which category to enter.) In order to assist members, Workshop evenings will devote some time to demonstrating items for the competition.
