Default Bash Slimline Contest

Here are draft rules for the Birthday Bash Slimline Contest. Please review. Questions, comments, and suggestions for improvement are welcome.


The Perfect Slimline Contest

The under appreciated slimline can be beautiful and elegant when done properly. Many of us started with it but moved on to sexier models. We forget that less can be more. Let’s see what we can do with less. This contest is seeking the perfect slimline. What is the perfect slimline you ask? The perfect slimline will have:
• An aesthetically pleasing shape
• Exacting fit
• A flawless finish
• Exquisite matching of kit finish and blank
There is absolutely no reason to not participate in this contest. Remember less can be more- Inexpensive kit, no special tools required, all you need are the basic skills to turn a simple pen. Show us what you got.

Here are the rules for the Perfect Slimline Contest
1. You must use a slimline or funline kit for this contest.
2. You must use a simple wood or resin blank, (no segmenting), you decide what contour is aesthetically pleasing.
3. There must not be any modifications to the kit
4. To enter the contest please use this email. Slimline.Unlimited@penturners.org Please include your user Id, real name and address and a single photo detailing the overall pen and its fit and finish..
5. The contest will close on @ midnight (Eastern Time)
6. Winners will be determined by IAP membership voting.

Midnight when? Today? It will take me all day just to clean up the shop. Plan on entering when I see the deadline. Sounds like a fun deal!

LOL

It says draft rules.

But you may need some more definition of "simple wood or resin blank, (no segmenting)," what about burls?

I am trying to distinguish this from a pretty wood contest or a casting contest. A well turned and designed slimline is the objective. A burl is acceptable if it is well turned and finished, the contour is pleasing, and the blank and kit finish complement each other. Does that help clarify things?

Sometime in February, you should have plenty of time to clean your shop and turn your perfect slimline.

Oh, if you finish your perfect slimline pen early do not post it anywhere. Save it for the contest.
