Turning Club - Fun Day 3/Dec/2011

The challenge was to create a Hat in 10 minutes.

Points are scored for design, finish, with bonus points for completing early.

Everyone gets an addition bonus of up to ten points pulled from a hat.

Working on a strange lathe with time and an audience wreaked havoc for some... there were major and minor disasters. Most however did extremely well and great fun was had by all.

About 40 members took part and the prize winner this year was Barry Rayner who, despite determined heckling, created a worthy winning hat.

The Rayner family did us proud with a magnificent buffet and all who took part ended up with a worthwhile prize.
