You keep the Minnesota Chapter in the spotlight.
Lots of skill here and plenty of design through the whole contest.

We may just have to start a display of winning pens here in Minnesota.
I know that Brian will have the most displayed but then WE know he is that good.

It's not "Having what you want" is "Wanting what you have".

Thank you for the comments. Congratulations to Dave, Greg, and Karl. This contest was filled with excellent entries. Everyone brought their top game. Thank you for the votes.

Thank you, Bob for chairing the contest, and for donating the travel mugs. Thank you, prize donors for supporting the BASH. The glue package will definately come in handy for this kind of work.

I saw the comments asking for details about process, and I received some PMs asking questions about technique. I'll commit to a write-up soon. I'm on the road, and don't have a steady connection.
