  1. When are the builders coming around to widen your front door?
    I thought the quality of the judging was poor this year – my photos should have done much better! (I’m not bitter).

  2. Congratulations. Although I can’t say much about the “quality of the judging”, I agree your pictures definitely are worth a prize.

  3. Yes, I agree about the judging – some of the winners were bizarre choices (not Dave’s of course – which were well worthy 😉

  4. but that’s the great thing about country shows. you never know what’s going to happen and what might take the judges’ fancy.
    who would have thought that a photo of a washing machine dial would win against some really nice photos of tables and chairs ?

  5. congratulations! once… back when i was 16, i was the “grand aggregate champion” for the 16 & under category at the manitoba stampede and exhibition in the crafts and homecrafts division.
    i like to mention this whenever possible. that isn’t often.
    🙂
