    Birdhouse showdown - GET YOUR PHOTOS SENT IN

    In the words of that Chef on Foodnetwork Bobby Flay are you ready for

    for a Birdhouse showdown.

    Well sign up here if you want to join in the Birdhouse turning or flatwork showdown

    Entrants so far

    Don
    Rob
    Jonathan
    John
    Drew ...maybe

    Any other takers.
    We will put up a poll when all done and let the members vote. Just like we did for the snowman that Chuck now has the pleasure of looking after. Anyone want to have a go at the rules. I mean Don we have to have something that levels the playing field when we get entrants like Paul and Bernie.

    Rustic has to be IN.
    You gotta have a bird.
    Gotta have a hanging eyelet


    Anymore ???

    We will set it up so its finished before Xmas so its in time to put them on our trees.

    Why do they have to be turned. How about letting the flat people in? Or two divisions and you can sign up for one or both?

    Yes let the bird houses begin. I'm in for sure.
    Lets set a size limit say no more then 4" tall and 3" wide not counting the perch.

    I agree Jonathan flatworkers too. Anyone can enter now and we can enter in both categories.

    Family members too. Good one to get the young uns involved for Xmas, flat birdhouse is very doable for kids.

    But flat birdhouse should be decorated too. and bird. For those into bats a batbox will sneak in under the wire.

    We need to set a date for submissions, say Dec 5th. That way we can have a 1 week judging and still have time for all of the contestants to be sent to the winner.

    What's a "hanging eyelet"? What do you mean "you gotta have a bird"? A bird decoration?

    I'd like to be in, but could it be bigger than 3" X 4"? The birds out here couldn't fit in a bird house that size.............?
