Default Welcome to the 2017 Birthday Bash

Welcome one and all. The 13th Anniversary Birthday Bash has now began.
We have contests for all level of pen makers,casters, and Pen stand and Box makers. This year we are introducing the Poly Clay contest and the Pretty Wood Pen contest to the bash. We have lots of old favorites including Trivia and Edgar will be along shortly to torment you with Puzzles.

If your new to turning check out the Turning Challenged Contest run by Derek.
Its not only for new turners but also those who may not have a lot of experience although they have been turning for a while.

The fun continues this year with Mike Broberg bringing back the Match the pen and pen maker and the "DIfficult to Write With Contest".

CHeck out all the contests and see if there isnt something that will challenge you!

Prizes will be announced for each contest as I get them sorted out.
Make sure you check out the Discount Forum for special codes for discounts from various Vendors that donate to the Bash. While your using those codes make sure that you thank them for supporting the Bash.

Good Luck to all of you entering contests. The only way not to win is to not enter!
