    My golden eagle won 1st place at Expert level and Best of Wood Working. You were all right, the judges said they could find absolutely nothing wrong with it, that it was perfect and it was the best burning they have ever seen. Well, I'm not sure that the latter part of that is an acurate statement but that's what they said and I'm not going to complain. I'm floating and I think that is a nice send off for my last show of the year and my upcoming surgery on Wednesday.

    Needless to say, I'm thrilled and still floating. BTW, a couple of the judges were the same ones that raked me over the coals with my first entry at expert level earlier in the year!Matrix That was the reason I was so nervous, these guys/gals are really tough!Star Wars

          A BIG thank you to everyone.

          Kathy, I'm not only planning, I already started my next one. I'd start sharing it here but I know that I won't have access to a puter for a while after tomorrow. I promise to share it when I finish.

                Opps I posted too fast I forgot the last part. I think that all judging should be by peoples choice.

                  Colin,
                  I agree! I do an annual Wine and Art Auction for Mexico Beach, FL every year. To be involved you have to donate a piece of art to the Auction. The art is judged and then Auctioned off. The one that wins at judging never brings the price that others bring. The bidding tells "People's Choice", rather than the opinion of a few local politicians and maybe a self-proclaimed art expert. I told the organizers that after the event this year. Maybe if I bug them enough, they'll think it through and change.

                    Way to go Nedra, But then, seeing your Burnings up close, I had no doubts.

                    I think that when you have tough judges and you do win, it is just a sweeter win. However, I do believe judges need to be those that have done burnings or carvings or what have you. I do know that some local people who did not know anything about the subject where asked to be judges at one Show. However, I think it is a honorable posistion and would be hard to refuse.
                    Again, Congratulation on a well deserved honor.
