Show and competition time is well upon us once again! Here are some of the questions or problems you could be asking yourself:
1. Do I really want to do this? Am I prepared to put in the time that it takes – it really does take quite a bit of time.
2. Do I have the knowledge? Knowledge comes from asking questions of ANYONE - friends, members of your local branch, people in
You're not the first person to ask questions and won't be the last.
Everyone who has entered a show will have been in the same predicament at some time.
3. Do I have the skill to do this? To be honest, maybe not, but if you start with a "Oh! I’ll never win because so and so will enter”
you will never find out.
4. Do you want to win 1st prize in your class? Of course you do, and if anyone tells you they don't, why on earth are they entering?
It’s only human nature to want to win! After all that's what a competition is about.
Enter a competition because you want to
Enter a competition because you want to learn
Enter a competition because you want to have some fun
So now we have the first hurdle cleared you can work out what section you want to enter
