The Annual Competition and Christmas Barbeque are being held at the December Triton Club meeting on WEDNESDAY 2nd December at Duffy Scout Hall. Please note that the BBQ will commence at 6:00 pm. The BBQ will be pay as you go affair with prices set to recover costs only.

If you have a competition entry, please have it fully set up by no later than 6:30 pm to facilitate timely judging. This means you will have to have lodged your entry form(s) with the Competition Convener well before that 6:30 deadline in order to allow the Competition Convener to allocate an entry number for each of your entries.

In this regard, please remember, a separate entry form is to be lodged with each piece entered in the competition so members will need to print as many copies of the entry form as the number of entries they propose to lodge on the evening.

Entries have to have been made in the past two years, and cannot have been previously entered. This competition is only open to financial members.

We have four categories this year – Toys, General Woodwork, Workshop, and a Maiden category for members entering for the first time. So if this is your first entry you can choose Maiden or one of the other relevant categories.

Toys: Unlimited except should be designed for a child as a toy and not a model; i.e. can a child use this to play with or will it sit on a shelf for display.
General: Might include tables, chairs, beds, chests, puzzles, quilt racks, cupboards, cabinets, stools, benches, planter boxes, camping or fold-up tables, etc.
Workshop: Might include jigs, tools, tool boxes, workshop assistance etc.

Maiden: The only criteria for items in this category are that the member entering has never entered anything in our competitions in previous years.

Fit For Purpose: Can it be used (safely) as intended?
Look: Feel, Finish, Visual Appeal
Materials: Best use of materials (bonus points will be added if you use recycled materials).
Innovation: Original ideas or designs

Provided there are sufficient entries of merit in each category there will be three cash prizes in each: 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes of $50, $35 and $20 respectively.
